June 8th saw the release of the First Man trailer, Damien Chazelle’s latest piece after La La Land in 2016. An adaptation of the official biography First Man: The Life of Neil A. Armstrong, this film is going to depict the build-up to the Apollo 11 mission of 1969 and the events revolving around it.
You can check the trailer out below:
As to be expected, the trailer is breathtaking and provides an intense outlook at the story of Neil Armstrong landing on the moon, played by Ryan Gosling. There is some amazingly aesthetic cinematography to be seen in the trailer, which seems to focus on the colour scheme of the moon mixed with some vibrant colours of the sun throughout. Linus Sandgren, the man behind the cinematography, evidently knows how to capture the essence of a film through its visuals, which can be seen in his previous work for films like American Hustle, Joy and La La Land.
Surprisingly, unlike Whiplash and La La Land, Chazelle will not be writing the screenplay and instead serving primarily as director for First Man. Josh Singer will be taking a hold of the screenplay who is probably best known for writing 2017’s The Post. Chazelle has experience working solely as a writer in the past for films such as The Last Exorcism: Part II and 10 Cloverfield Lane but working solely as director is new territory for the filmmaker and it’ll be interesting to see how his efforts poured purely into directing show on screen.
If Chazelle’s previous track record and this initial powerful trailer are anything to go by, the directing of this film will be captivating throughout and First Man will not be a film you’ll want to miss when it releases on October 12th 2018.
