By Creative Media TimesUniversal Pictures has launched the international trailer for the Ryan Gosling starrer “First Man” and it features some of the more thrilling aspects about the astronaut’s journey into space. “The most dangerous mission in human history,” it says on the trailer.
The film is getting plenty of acclaim lately after its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival, including Gosling for his role as Neil Armstrong, the astronaut referred on the film’s title as the first man to walk on the moon.
The film is based on the book “First Man: The Life of Neil A. Armstrong” by James R. Hansen, and is written by Josh Singer, who won an academy award for Best Original Screenplay for Spotlight.
This is Gosling and director Damien Chazelle’s follow-up to “La La Land,” which earn a record-tying 14 Oscar nominations last year.
“First Man” is set to be released by Universal Pictures on October 12, 2018.
Here’s the film’s official synopsis:
On the heels of their six-time Academy Award®-winning smash, La La Land, Oscar®-winning director Damien Chazelle and star Ryan Gosling reteam for Universal Pictures’ First Man, the riveting story behind the first manned mission to the moon, focusing on Neil Armstrong and the decade leading to the historic Apollo 11 flight. A visceral and intimate account told from Armstrong’s perspective, based on the book by James R. Hansen, the film explores the triumphs and the cost—on Armstrong, his family, his colleagues and the nation itself—of one of the most dangerous missions in history.
Written by Academy Award® winner Josh Singer (Spotlight, The Post), the epic drama of leading under the pressure of grace and tragedy is produced by Wyck Godfrey & Marty Bowen (The Twilight Saga, The Fault in Our Stars) through their Temple Hill Entertainment banner, alongside Isaac Klausner (Love, Simon) and Chazelle. Steven Spielberg, Adam Merims and Singer executive produce, while DreamWorks Pictures co-finances the film.
