Battle Beyond the Sun is the English-dubbed and re-edited U.S. version of Nebo Zovyot, a 1959 Soviet science fiction film directed by Mikhail Karyukov and Aleksandr Kozyr. It tells of the "space race" of two future nations competing to become the first to land a spacecraft on the planet Mars.
Some space scenes from Nebo Zovyot also appear in Corman's 1965 film Voyage to the Prehistoric Planet. See more »
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 »
Released (by Roger Corman) in the USA as "Battle Beyond the Sun". This version was recut and also added new footage directed by a young Francis Ford Coppola. In this version, of course, all Soviet propaganda has been dropped. See more »
WOW OK fast-forwarding already and the movie just began... this is Francis Ford Coppola & Roger Corman film?!! Originally a (boring) Russian film that is hacked to pieces, re-edited and dubbed over with a few new scenes added. Yet it's so boring already and awful looking I can't bare to watch anymore! What was so good about this original film? From what I can tell from this Americanized and dubbed over version it, the original film, was awful. Why bother to Americanize this?! I'm sorry I just do not find this film appealing at all.
Well I'll chalk this one up to a 50-pack filler film. I acquired it in the Sci-Fi Invasion 50-Pack. Oh well, they can't all be winners.
