Lloyd Christmas Is About To Lose His Mind Again

The Ryan Gosling and Claire Foy-led ‘First Man’ from 2018 revisited the historic Apollo 11 mission that culminated in the United States landing on the moon on July 20, 1969. The film’s director Damien Chazelle and his set crew beautifully recreated the moon’s surface and chronicled the first step by Neil Armstrong as well as a surprise, deeply reflective walk that personalized a grand moment that is now–impressively–more awe-inspiring.

Hollywood can dramatize and expertly recreate historic events. And yet a documentary tells a true story in masterful, artistic ways that are, at times, indescribable.

‘Apollo 11’ is one of these realities.

Director Todd Douglas Miller and major motion picture distributor Neon aims to do just that with its recent official trailer.

An exact release date has not been determined for ‘Apollo 11.’ Although it’s fair to say that people will surely mark their calendars when this exciting and informative documentary finally takes off into a theater near you.

‘First Man’ Gets a Second Loop

‘First Man’ will not have a surprise ending–though conspiracy theorists may buy tickets just in case–yet the forthcoming film starring Ryan Gosling and Claire Foy looks every bit as engaging as the real events involving America’s successful landing on the moon back on July 20, 1969.

In preparation for the launch of the Damien Chazelle-directed movie that opens in theaters on October 12 (including IMAX), Universal Pictures premiered the second official trailer for ‘First Man’ today.

Seeing ‘First Man’ on the biggest screen possible will serve as a great reminder of what that risky, inspirational mission represented for our world nearly 50 years ago.

Happy 4th of July!

The story of the Declaration of Independence is one we must never forget.

It was this American imagination and grit that led to the founding of a nation–the United States of America–unlike any other in human history.

Happy 4th of July! 

Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day

Martin Luther King Jr. changed the way generations of Americans dream. And as millions of us honor Dr. King’s powerful legacy of peace today, his civil rights message defined by the words “I have a dream…” will continue to inspire the many generations to come. When faced with troubles, personal and societal, Dr. King is a popular reference in finding the motivation to succeed.

Exhibit A I Have a Dream:

Martin Luther King Jr.’s life tragically ended far too soon at age 39. However, we can take solace in knowing his legacy lives on.

Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
