    First Man (2018)



    Release date: October 12, 2018
    Studio: Universal Pictures
    Director: Damien Chazelle
    MPAA Rating: PG-13 (for some thematic content involving peril, and brief strong language)
    Screenwriter: Josh Singer
    Starring: Ryan Gosling, Corey Stoll, Kyle Chandler, Jon Bernthal, Claire Foy, Jason Clarke, Kyle Chandler, Patrick Fugit, Ciaran Hinds, Ethan Embry, Shea Whigham, Pablo Schreiber
    Genre: Drama, Biography

    Plot Summary: Based on the authorized biography "First Man: A Life Of Neil A. Armstrong" by James Hansen. NASA historian James R. Hansen got rare direct access to Armstrong, a test pilot-turned-astronaut who was so driven to reach the moon and play the role of American hero that he became known as "the Ice Commander." Armstrong had a family tragedy before Apollo that turned him into this driven astronaut, and he became such a perfect hero that while Buzz Aldrin was announced to be the first man on the moon, NASA reversed its decision because Neil was regarded as more heroic. Armstrong returned from the moon as one of the most famous men on Earth but didn't capitalize on it with a political career or endorsements. He reconnected with his family, shut out the world and became an intensely private man.

    Huge missed opportunity not having Kirk Lazarus play Neil Armstrong

    Checked this out yesterday, really good stuff. Wouldn't be surprised to see Gosling's name around during award season (don't know if he'll win much though), and the sound is just top notch, which is no surprise considering who the director is.

    Total Lifetime Grosses
    Domestic: $17,318,735 66.8%
    + Foreign: $8,600,000 33.2%
    = Worldwide: $25,918,735
    This movie had a 59 million dollar budget, this number fell far short of expectations.
