First Man Trailer Shows The Struggles Of Reaching The Moon

Reaching the moon was hard. No, before you ask, I wasn’t there, but given how far away it is from us, I’m going to go out on a limb and assume that it’s pretty damn hard. However, in the decades that have passed since we reached that previously-unreachable goal, I think it’s easy to lose perspective of all the real drama surrounding it.

This was back in an era of paranoia surrounding the Soviet Union, so the stakes went well beyond simply just reaching a really far place. Additionally, there were naysayers across the board who resented the sheer number of resources being diverted to what they felt was an unworthy cause.

From the looks of the first trailer for First Man, it looks like we’ll be seeing at least some of that play out.

Below is 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.
