Now that First Man has generated sufficient negative publicity, with the haters and right wing demagogues having really no good reason to hate – as I outlined in my editorial here – the film is back with a new featurette titled “The First Time”.

On the heels of their six-time Academy Award®-winning smash, La La LandOscar®-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.

Written by Academy Award® winner Josh Singer (Spotlight), the drama is produced by Wyck Godfrey & Marty Bowen (The Twilight SagaThe Fault in Our Stars) through their Temple Hill Entertainment banner, alongside Chazelle and Gosling. Isaac Klausner (The Fault in Our Stars) executive produces. Amblin Entertainment co-finances the film.

Catch First Man in cinemas October 12th and enjoy the featurette below.
