Looking forward to this 2016 movie entitled "First Time":
March 18, 1965. For 77 days before the Americans went into space, the Soviet Union wins the technological race when Alexei Leonov first greeted earthlings from outer space, and, according to the chronicle, safely walked back to the ship. But these 5 meters to the gateway are the most painful walk in his life, and an emergency landing in manual mode — an example of the incredible will to live of the Leonov and Pavel Belyaev, his partner.
The film, directed by Yuri Bykov, is due out sometime in 2016.

Looks interesting. Weren't we also meant to be getting a film about Gagarin and Vostok 1?

"Gagarin: First in Space" was released into theaters in 2013 and home video the year later.
