Full-Length Trailer for Gorgeously Cinematic 'Apollo 11' Documentary
"The enormity of this event is something that only history will be able to judge." Neon and CNN Films have debuted the full-length official trailer for the documentary Apollo 11, from 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. It just premiered at the Sundance Film Festival to quite a bit of acclaim - and it needs to be seen on the big screen for the full experience. Neon is releasing this film in connection with the 50th anniversary of the 1969 landing on the Moon (they landed on July 20th, 1969) by mission commander Neil Armstrong and pilot Buzz Aldrin. I am quoted in this new trailer (and on the full poster) from a review I wrote last weekend at Sundance, where I said it's "a stunning, gorgeously cinematic documentary made up entirely of footage from NASA's archives." Fellow space nerds - you can't miss this.
Here's the full-length trailer (+ poster) for Todd Douglas Miller's documentary Apollo 11, from YouTube:
Apollo 11 is the cinematic event fifty years in the making. Featuring never-before-seen large-format film footage of one of humanity’s greatest accomplishments. The film features never-before-seen, large-format film footage of one of humanity’s greatest accomplishments. The film is executive produced by CNN Films, which will retain the US television rights, and is produced by Miller’s Statement Pictures.

Alex, congrats on the plug placement! That's fantastic! As an Apollo fanatic, I'm really excited about this film. Hoping it gets an IMAX (or at least LIEMAX) release!

This is the cleanest archive footage I have ever seen.

This looks good but I think it will have to go some to surpass the truly wonderful Shadow of the Moon documentary. That really was something special featuring a wonder fusion of imagery and music. It's probably one of my favourite all time documentaries, especially relating to space and our journey to the moon. Therefore a lot of this footage and audio clips I've heard before in Shadow of the Moon. Still, I hope it does well as wonder and awe at this fantastic achievement should be kept alive.
