Ryan Gosling takes the lead as Neil Armstrong and his plight to make history as the first man on the moon.
‘First Man’ documents the training, risk and sacrifices made by astronaut Neil Armstrong as he worked towards making history as the first man to walk on the Moon. Ryan Gosling stars as Armstrong in a film that follows his story between 1961 and the moment that wrote him into the history books on July 20th 1969.
This is the fascinating story of NASA’s first mission to the Moon from the perspective of the world’s most famous astronaut as he risks his life and places a tremendous strain on his family in the pursuit of space exploration.
La La Land director Damien Chazelle works with Ryan Gosling once more on an adaptation of a book written by James R. Hansen.
Still currently in post production, the film is due to hit cinemas in October 2018, a little under a year before the 50th anniversary of Armstrong’s ‘one small step’.
