‘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.
The cinematic jazz duo of ‘La La Land’ actor Ryan Gosling with writer and director Damien Chazelle are back with a story–known and unknown–that changed the way we view our planet relative to the infinite, mysterious space around it.
Neil Armstrong is the focus. 1961-1969 are the years. And the moment was historic.
Now for the first poster.
Now the first trailer just released online.
We’ll just have to wait and see if ‘First Man’ has the right stuff to live up to the legacy of NASA and Neil Armstrong, its fearless leader.
