Follow the gripping and captivating true story of the first manned mission to the moon in FIRST MAN, arriving on Digital on 4 February 2019 and on 4K Ultra HD™, Blu-ray™, DVD and On Demand on 18 February 2019 from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. Hailed by critics as being “Captivating and suspenseful” (Brian Viner, Daily Mail), and “Awe-inspiring”(David Sexton, Evening Standard), FIRST MAN comes from acclaimed Oscar®-winning director Damien Chazelle (La La Land, Whiplash) and stars Ryan Gosling (La La Land, The Big Short) as Neil Armstrong and Claire Foy (“The Crown”, Breathe) as Janet Armstrong in the heroic and emotionally driven journey through a pivotal moment in the history of mankind. Receiving two Golden Globe® nominations for Best Supporting Actress (Foy) and Best Original Score (Justin Hurwitz), the critically acclaimed film is packed with bonus features including 37 minutes of deleted scenes and special featurettes showing behind-the-scenes looks at creating the film.
Based on the book First Man: The Life of Neil A. Armstrong by James R. Hansen and from visionary filmmaker Damien Chazelle, FIRST MAN is the riveting story behind the first manned mission to the moon, focusing on Neil Armstrong and the decade leading to the historic Apollo 11 flight. A visceral and intimate account told from Armstrong’s perspective, the film explores the triumphs and the cost—on Armstrong, his family, his colleagues and the nation itself—of one of the most dangerous missions in history.
The critically acclaimed FIRST MAN comes from legendary executive producer Steven Spielberg (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, Schindler’s List) alongside fellow executive producers Adam Merims (Baby Driver, Straight Outta Compton) and Josh Singer (The Post, Spotlight) with a screenplay by Singer allowing audiences to relive the historic achievement in human history that has never been told cinematically. Filled with outstanding performances from an all-star cast led by Gosling and Foy alongside an incredible roster of supporting talent including Kyle Chandler, Jason Clarke, Corey Stoll, Pablo Schreiber, Christopher Abbot, and Ciarán Hinds,
FIRST MAN is “ambitious, artful and beautifully realised” (James Mottram, Total Film).
