Frank Sinatra sang ‘Fly Me To The Moon’, next month Damien Chazelle will transport us to the moon. Or should we say America’s attempts to get Ryan Gosling to be First Man…to the moon.
After all the success of La La Land, all eyes are on Chazelle as his following film is only four weeks away. The story of NASA’s mission to land a man on the moon and a certain Neil Armstrong.
Over the other side of the Atlantic Ocean, Toronto Film Festival has kicked off and First Man has made its World Premiere. The early reviews are fantastic, so what better time to release a new second UK Trailer.
The new trailer intensifies Neil Armstrong’s Apollo 11 mission and the dangers that lay ahead. A wise move as the story of Armstrong is well known and focus on the journey to the moon is only half of the journey!
Will this film earn Chazelle even more appraisal? Can he outdo what he did with Whiplash and La La Land? At least this film looks like will be a big player in the awards circuit only time will tell if the same success will follow…
On the heels of their six-time Academy Award®-winning smash, La La Land, Oscar®-winning director Damien Chazelle and star Ryan Gosling reteam for Universal Pictures’ First Man, the riveting story of NASA’s mission to land a man on the moon, focusing on Neil Armstrong and the years 1961-1969. A visceral, first-person account, based on the book by James R. Hansen, the movie will explore the sacrifices and the cost—on Armstrong and on the nation—of one of the most dangerous missions in history.
The film stars Claire Foy, Jason Clarke, Kyle Chandler, Patrick Fugit, Ciaran Hinds, Ethan Embry, Shea Whigham, Corey Stoll, Pablo Schreiber, Lukas Haas.
First Man will be released in the UK, Ireland and the USA on 12th October.
