The debut trailer for the Neil Armstrong biopic First Man has finally landed.

Fans received their first look at the clip during Friday night’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live!, in which the film’s star Ryan Gosling conducted the entire interview while rocking a spacesuit. Very appropriate.


The trailer opens with Gosling, who plays the famed astronaut, staring at a Saturn V rocket as it blasts from the launch pad. We then get a glimpse at several key moments in Armstrong’s life as he prepares to become the first human being ever to set foot on the moon. The preview highlights the obstacles and perils Armstrong had to face, as well as how his family was affected.

“There are risks, but we have every intention of coming back,” Armstrong tells his son in the preview.

First Man is an adaptation of James Hansen’s 2005 biography, First Man: The Life of Neil A. Armstrong. Damien Chazelle, who previously worked with Gosling on the Oscar-winning film La La Land, directed the upcoming project.

“What I really wanted to do here is get to know the people who embarked on this unimaginable journey,” Chazelle said during CinemaCon in April, “and take audiences with them in a truly immersive big-screen way as they shot towards the heavens and towards those first few steps on the moon.”
