Incredibly Thrilling New Trailer For FIRST MAN Tells The Story of The First Journey to The Moon
"We need to fail down here so we don't fail up there."
When I was a kid I had dreams of being an astronaut and blasting off into space to walk on the moon. I have such a strong passion for space travel and NASA. I always have and it's so awesome to see films like this getting made that tell the stories of the brave individuals that took us into space and to the moon.
Today we have a new trailer for you to watch for the upcoming film First Man, which comes from director Damien Chazelle, who also helmed the films Whiplash and La La Land. The film tells 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, based on the book by James R. Hansen, 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."
Ryan Gosling is taking on the role of Neil Armstrong, The Crown star Claire Foy is playing Neil's wife Janet and the rest of the cast includes Kyle Chandler, Corey Stoll, Jon Bernthal, Jason Clarke and Ethan Embry.
Chazelle is an incredibly talented filmmaker and First Man looks like it could be his best film yet. The film is set to open in theaters on October 12, 2018. Enjoy the new trailer!
