First Man Trailer

"There are risks, but we have every intention of coming back…" Universal has unveiled the first official trailer for Damien Chazelle's highly anticipated next film, titled First Man, a look at the life of astronaut Neil Armstrong leading up to his voyage on Apollo 11 and first steps on the moon in July of 1969. Ryan Gosling (from Chazelle's La La Land) stars as Armstrong, and the full cast includes Claire Foy as his wife Janet, along with Pablo Schreiber, Kyle Chandler, CiarĂ¡n Hinds, Ethan Embry, Jason Clarke, Brian d'Arcy James, Corey Stoll, Christopher Abbott, Patrick Fugit, Shea Whigham, and Lukas Haas. The film features sequences shot on IMAX cameras, as well as scenes shot on film, mixing different camera styles. Chazelle explains: "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."

Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Damien Chazelle's First Man, direct from Uni's YouTube:

Armstrong". This film is expected to premiere at a few film festivals in the fall first - stay tuned.

If there was one trailer that deserved the often misused word "EPIC", this would be it.... Maybe not for the quality of the movie, albeit looking good, but because of the subject matter

The funny thing about the space flights and explorations is that it was forced by Cold War politics and not by an interest in breaking some new horizons. One must like the fact the politics was forced to do it. Imagine if that really would be the case for the poverty in this world. Anyway, this looks like something standard and watchable. At some point, in the lack of something better, why not?

Chandler makes such a good coach/teacher. I could watch him a role like that all day. I 'd like to see him in a HBO/Showtime Series.

The Right Stuff, Apollo 13 and HBO's From The Earth to the Moon covered all of this material very well. I didn't see anything in this trailer that leads me to believe this will supplant those films in any way.

I loved Apollo 13 - so up for more on such groundbreaking times.

Could of swore I just watched a trailer for Apollo 13. Although instead of Tom Hanks, they used one of THE worst actors in Hollywood. Probably worse than Brad Pitt.

It's hard to beat The Shadow of the Moon documentary for anyone really interested in the Apollo programme.
