'First Man': Watch new trailer of Ryan Gosling in Damien Chazelle's take on Apollo 11 mission
The second trailer for the Neil Armstrong biopic brings the iconic duo of damien Chazelle and Ryan Gosling together yet again and plays up the dangers of the Apollo 11 mission.
Prepare for blast off! Universal Pictures has just unveiled a new trailer for the upcoming Apollo 11 biopic, 'First Man'.
Written by Oscar-winning screenwriter Josh Singer ('The Post'), the film is based on a book by James R. Hansen and reunites the team of director Damien Chazelle and Ryan Gosling (who previously worked together on Oscar-winning project 'La La Land' ). The film chronicles the story of NASA’s mission to land a man on the moon, focusing on Neil Armstrong between the years of 1961 and 1969. Gosling fills up the historical shoes of Armstrong in the film, with Emmy-winning 'The Crown' actress Claire Foy playing Armstrong’s wife Janet.
Following in the light of the first trailer, the new clip continues to stir a hype around the dangers of the mission, which is definitely a smart move, considering the fact that we all know how this story ends. But that doesn't mean that we fully understand the risks involved in the historic mission of putting the first human on the surface of the moon. The new trailer arrives just after the 49th anniversary of the moon landing, which took place on July 16, earlier this year.
The film also stars Jason Clarke, Kyle Chandler, Patrick Fugit, Ciaran Hinds, Ethan Embry, Shea Whigham, Corey Stoll, and Pablo Schreiber. Produced by Wyck Godfrey and Marty Bowen alongside Chazelle and Gosling, 'First Man' opens in theaters on October 12.
