A movie about NASA could be boring, but the First Man Official Trailer Looks Incredible! Universal Pictures just dropped the first trailer for this upcoming Ryan Gosling film from Oscar-winning director Damien Chazelle, and it looks intense and riveting.
First Man tells the story of NASA during the years of 1961 through 1969 and their ambitious mission to put a man on the moon. Based on the book of the same title by James R. Hansen, First Man tells the story through the visceral, first-person account of Neil Armstrong. It explores the sacrifices and costs of the incredibly dangerous Apollo missions, and how those balance against the benefits of space exploration.
First Man is scheduled for released in theaters on October 12, 2018. Ryan Gosling stars as Neil Armstrong, with Claire Foy as his wife, Janet Armstrong. Academy Award winner Josh Singer (Spotlight) wrote the screenplay based on the book by by James R. Hansen.
