Since 1969, most schools have learned or talked about Neil Armstrong and ‘First Man‘ on the Moon. Next month Damien Chazelle’s First Man will focus on the journey to that historical event. Ryan Gosling once again reunites with Chazelle (last together in La La Land) plays Armstrong.
Universal Pictures has released a brand new behind the scenes Featurette called ‘First Time‘. A short but sweet promo which Gosling and Chazelle discuss the story of The First Man On The Moon. Both (and ourselves) are amazed that a story like this set up perfectly for the big screen hasn’t been made until now.
Yesterday one of our writers watched the film ahead of its release. All we can say at this point its one ‘dangerous journey’ you want to be on…
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.
