Chetvertaya Planeta (1995)

Chetvertaya Planeta aka The Fourth Planet is a Russian film from 1995
Three astronauts, two Russians and an American,  find a very Soviet-alike small town on the fourth planet from Sun.
This is about as much as I can tell you right now but its probably enough to be getting on with.
Nice spacesuits.

  1. When they`re painted silver like this they remind me a lot of the UFO alien mk2 helmets with the opening visor.
    I`ve remembered two other films/shows featured here where the gsh-6 makes an appearance:
    Dr Who:To kill the moon
    Supernova
    And I`ve just found one we dont have,its Earthstorm from 2006 staring Battlestar Galacticas Dirk Benedict

    1. Agree, painted up, I too was reminded of the UFO helmets. I'm thinking they might have been the inspiration behind the design? I draw your attention to the horizontal ridges on the GSH and then the vertical ridges on the UFO being a cheeky little design nod. Also the whole visor thing is very reminiscent. Thanks for the other stuff, I'll go add the labels.

  2. I've got to wonder if this is an adaption of Bradbury's "Mars is Heaven."

    1. The set up does sound the same.
