The inhabitants of planet Earth were able to watch the movie “Star wars: the Last Jedi” on December 9 (Russian premiere took place on 14 December). But the residents of the International space station the new movies are not available so quickly. Think you know what it involves. On the ISS you can’t just book a seat in the theater and go at any time. That’s why Disney decided to make the astronauts a little celebration by sending them a digital copy of his new movie.
Digital copy was transmitted to the ISS via the Space center Lyndon B. Johnson. We remind you that in 2015, Disney similarly conveyed on Board the International space station, the previous film of the Saga with the subtitle “the force awakens”. American astronaut mark Vande HEI has published in his Twitter a funny picture demonstrating the process of viewing the new film. In the photo you can see that spectators are holding bottles of drinking water. Although, who knows, maybe there is not water at all. The picture on the ISS sent exclusively to the English soundtrack, so Russian cosmonauts Alexander Misurkin and Anton Shkaplerov had to rely on my knowledge of this language.
The movie “Star wars: the Last Jedi” to date, has collected in world hire more than 770 million dollars, which has already recouped its budget of 397 million. The film’s Director Ryan Johnson had earlier managed to score such films as “looper” with Bruce Willis and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, as well as become an incredibly successful television series “breaking bad”. Fans of the space Saga was traditionally divided into two camps. One new picture very much, while others pounced on the Director because he did not meet their expectations. We remind you that the situation was similar two years ago after the release on the big screens “the force awakens”.
