New Poster and Promo For FIRST MAN Honors The 49th Anniversary of Apollo 11's Moon Landing
In celebration of the 49th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, Universal Pictures released a new movie poster and promo for Damien Chazelle’s upcoming film, First Man. The promo spot offers a cool POV shot of Armstrong about to take his first step on the moon.
The movie tells the story of NASA and their incredible adventure of sending man to the moon. The movie will mostly put a focus on Neil Armstrong, who is being played by Ryan Gosling. When talking about his approach to the film, he said:
"We wanted to tell the story about one of the most epic accomplishments in human history, but root it very much in the intimate and the day to day details of what it was actually like. What did it feel like to be Neil or Janet at that moment in time and going through these truly superhuman kind of events.
"What fascinated me about Neil Armstrong is that he is kind of a mystery. For someone that accomplished something that is among one of the most famous things that anyone has ever accomplished, the human himself is a little bit of an enigma."
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.
First Man will open in theaters October 12, 2018.
