Directed by 'La La Land' and 'Whiplash's Damien Chazelle
The debut trailer for ‘First Man’, the Neil Armstrong biopic starring Ryan Gosling has been released – directed by ‘La La Land’s Damien Chazelle.
The trailer debuted on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ showing Gosling as Armstrong and the film follows his training to man the Apollo 11 spaceflight. It is Damien Chazelle’s second film working with Gosling.
Alongside Gosling, ‘First Man’ also stars Pablo Schreiber, Kyle Chandler, and Jason Clarke. In April, footage was shown to theatre owners at CinemaCon, reports Variety.
Director Chazelle promised an “immersive journey” of Armstrong and his crew’s journey toward the moon, but also gives a look at Neil and Janet’s difficult marriage.

‘First Man’ was announced in December 2016 as an adaptation of book First Man: A Life Of Neil A. Armstrong, which was written by James Hansen.
Chazelle is currently set to helm a new musical series on Netflix called ‘The Eddy’. It will be an eight-episode show that will be set in Paris, telling the story of “a club, its owner, the house band, and the chaotic city that surrounds them”
