Short Teaser Trailer for CNN's 'Apollo 11' Moon Landing Documentary
"50 years in the making…" Neon and CNN Films have released the first teaser trailer for a new documentary titled simply Apollo 11, from doc director Todd Douglas Miller (Gahanna Bill, Dinosaur 13). This feature film is made up entirely of never-before-seen large-format film footage of the Apollo 11 mission to the Moon. Here's to hoping this will get a full-format IMAX release, because yes please. Neon announced the news coinciding with the 49th anniversary of the 1969 landing on the Moon (they landed on July 20th, 1969) by mission commander Neil Armstrong and pilot Buzz Aldrin. This is also most definitely a tie-in with Damien Chazelle's new film First Man, about Neil Armstrong and the Apollo 11 mission, though there's no mention in the press release (different studios, makes sense). I'm a big space nerd - can't wait to see more from this.
