Astronauts on the ISS have a new HD projecter. Guess which film they watched

Imagine you're an astronaut on the International Space Station, it's a Saturday night and you want to watch a film on the new HD projector you usually use for conferences. But what film to choose, what to choose...

According to US astronaut Scott Kelly , that actually happened last night.

Yes, a group of astronauts on the ISS watched a film about a group of astronauts struggling to survive on the ISS.
