How do you follow up two beloved Oscar winning films? Well, if you're director Damien Chazelle (Whiplash, La La Land) you go all out to make a third beloved Oscar winning film. For his third feature, Chazelle takes us back fifty years to the chaos and hubbub surrounding the first moon landing.
This film reunites him with his La La Land co-star Ryan "Baby Goose" Gosling as Armstrong, with Ant-Man's Corey Stoll stepping into the role of Buzz Aldrin and card-carrying member of the Pussy Posse, Lukas Haas, as Michael Collins, the third man on the Apollo 11 mission.
Also along for the ride are The Crown's Claire Foy as Armstrong's wife Janet, and a stellar supporting cast including Jason Clarke, Kyle Chandler, Ciaran Hinds, Brian d'Arcy James, and more. The script was written by Dad Movie specialist Josh Singer, whose previous films include the Oscar winning Spotlight and the Oscar nominated The Post.
So make plans now to take your dad to see First Man, the can't-miss Dad Movie of the fall that's sure to be an Oscar contender and a nice, leisurely paced Sunday afternoon movie that any dad could get behind. First Man opens in theaters nationwide on October 12.
