Russian crew wrap up their first film in space

A Russian film crew bid farewell to the International Space Station on Saturday after completing their mission to make the first movie ever filmed in space.

And they returned to earth on Sunday and landed in the steppe of Kazakhstan by parachute-assisted landing.

They spent 12 days on-board filming scenes for their movie 'the Challenge' and prepared to take the Soyuz MS-18 spacecraft back to Earth.

Russian actress Yulia Peresild plays a doctor, who travels to a space station to save a cosmonaut's life.

The project has Russia beating the U.S. in the latest chapter in the space race - movie making.

Although last year NASA announced plans for Hollywood star Tom Cruise to blast off on a SpaceX rocket for a yet-to-be-named film.
