UPDATE (June 16): The U.S. version of the trailer was deleted off the studio’s YouTube and social media and re-released earlier this week following concerns over the use of archival audio from the 1986 Space Shuttle Challenger disaster. The updated trailer is included below alongside an alternate 2-minute television version (via iSpot), which aired during the NBA Finals broadcast following Gosling’s appearance on Kimmel, featuring glimpses of new footage.
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 of NASA’s mission to land a man on the moon, focusing on Neil Armstrong and the years 1961-1969. A visceral, first-person account, based on the book by James R. Hansen, the movie will explore the sacrifices and the cost—on Armstrong and on the nation—of one of the most dangerous missions in history.
Starring Ryan Gosling, Claire Foy, Jason Clarke, Kyle Chandler, Patrick Fugit, Ciaran Hinds, Ethan Embry, Shea Whigham, Corey Stoll and Pablo Schreiber, the film is released in the U.S. and the UK on October 12.
