The Life of Neil Armstrong Is Explored In “First Man”

Ryan Gosling stars as Neil Armstrong in the acclaimed biopic First Man, based on James R. Hansen’s book. In the wake of a family tragedy, Armstrong becomes a major player in NASA’s bid to see that the U.S. finally pulls ahead of the Soviet Union in the Space Race. He works in the Gemini and Apollo programs before being given command of the Apollo 11 mission and becoming the first person to ever walk on the moon on July 20th, 1969. With Claire Foy, Jason Clarke, Kyle Chandler, Corey Stoll.

Since today is the 50th anniversary of the Armstrong’s world-changing Moonwalk, we would be remiss if we didn’t make this film today’s Movie Trailer of the Day. If you missed First Man during its theatrical run last year, this weekend would be the perfect opportunity to check it out and commemorate the accomplishments one of Earth’s greatest heroes…both on the ground and high above.
