On the heels of their six-time Academy Award-winning smash, La La Land, Oscar-winning director Damien Chazelle and actor Ryan Gosling join forces for First Man.

This is the riveting story of NASA’s mission to land a man on the moon, focusing on Neil Armstrong and the years between 1961-1969. A visceral, first-person account, based on the book by James R. Hansen, the film will explore the sacrifices and the personal cost on Armstrong. It also explores the national following of what was one of the most dangerous missions in history.

Stars Gosling, Claire Foy, Jason Clarke, Kyle Chandler, Corey Stoll, Ciaran Hinds, Christopher Abbott, Patrick Fugit and Lukas Haas.
