Trivia

The credit on the U.S. version of the film, "Battle Beyond the Sun", was given to 'Thomas Colchart', a pseudonym for then aspiring filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola. Roger Corman gave him the task of creating two monsters resembling genitalia (one male, one female) which were amusingly spliced into the film. See more »

Goofs

In the re-edited U.S. version under the title "Battle Beyond the Sun" the same dolly shot of women waving is used twice. The first is when the rocket is landing back on Earth. Only minutes later, when the cosmonauts have left the rocket, the exact same shot is used again. See more »

What was the original about?
9 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have just posted a synopsis for this film and noted the major differences between the original Soviet production and the American release.

Although reported to be over 2 hours long my fully subtitled version is only 67 minutes.

I suspect that the a lot of the Soviet propaganda supposed to be in the film was removed before the subtitled version came out.

If anyone wants more details of the differences between the two films don't hesitate to contact me.

Also if anyone has a longer subtitled version of the original film I would also love to know how to source it
