Alexander Astier, who joined the QMI agency in France via videoconference, explained and needed to be referred to.
“In the film, we go there. If there are pirate ships, we go to sea and we do it. We will fly 6,000 kilometers to go to Oman. It’s all a budget story, but putting comedy characters at great risk is a movie. I thought it would be so easy to say what I say in a movie environment. ”

I can be happy about it, I’m proud of it and I’m happy with it, but it’s not changing what I do. And it doesn’t affect directions. “
“It’s absolutely necessary to be neutral about all this. Also, I’m definitely ready to displease all these people. Not on purpose, not from provocation, not from integrity. If they do not like what I do, it’s life. I’m ready for it, it’s OK. Did not succeed Camelot. »
Camelot Estimated at the International Space Station
Thomas Pesquet, a French astronaut, flew to the ISS last April for a six-month stay. How Alexander Astier tells its copy Camelot – the first part Out of space …

“When this film was released I realized he was in space. I gave him privately to manage me so he could see it. He liked it and we kept it. At the same time, “fans” started signing petitions to send me this picture, but it was already there! I didn’t want it to be public, I didn’t want to take it as a fake promo. ”
“The place is big, but its boundaries are not far from us. I believe Thomas Pesquet is less than 200 kilometers from us, that is you [au Québec, NDLR] Much more from me than Thomas Pesquet! I hope he contributes to pushing the boundaries of space, that is to say, all of these are close and close, I want to prove his “tweets” and the constant contact he has with the Earth, the station when he was space commander. “
