The La La Land director introduced the footage in Caesars Palace, Las Vegas, where he promised the audience – comprised of cinema owners – that he wanted to guide viewers through the astronaut’s “immersive journey… as they shot through the heavens and took those first few steps on the moon.”

By the way, Damien Chazelle broke records in 2017 when he became the youngest person to ever win the Best Director Oscar for La La Land. In that year he won the same award at the Golden Globes and BAFTAs as well as the Golden Globe for Best Screenplay.

What the movie is about

As you might know, the story is about astronaut Neil Armstrong and the legendary NASA’s mission to put the first man on the moon. The film also tells the story of astronaut’s life between 1961 and 1969.

Based on James R. Hansen’s novel of the same name, the film will, “explore the sacrifices and the cost — on Armstrong and on the nation — of one of the most dangerous space missions in history.”

Moonwatch will be there too

Eagle-eyed fans might have spotted the interesting detail in the trailer – Gosling wears an Omega Speedmaster watch. The Speedmaster successfully passed NASA’s tests and became qualified for spaceflight in 1965. As the first men to set foot on the moon, the Omega model is therefore the first watch to stake the same claim, earning it the nickname “moonwatch.”

Claire Foy (The Crown) will play Armstrong’s wife Janet Shearon and the trailer already promises that we will see the sacrifice Armstrong’s family had to make in order for his mission to be possible.

Meanwhile Corey Stoll (House Of Cards) and Kyle Chandler (Manchester By The Sea) will play Buzz Aldrin and Deke Slayton, the men who undertook the NASA mission with Armstrong.

Jon Bernthan (Baby Driver, Sicario, The Wolf of Wall Street) will play Dave Scott, who walked on the moon in July 1971 as part of Apollo 15, making him one of only a dozen men to have set foot on its surface.

Flag controversy

Damien Chazelle decided to omit the iconic planting of the American flag on the moon and of course, it caused the wave of criticism.

Ryan Gosling defended the decision, framing it as a creative choice that speaks to the way the film’s creators viewed that moment in history.

“I think this was widely regarded in the end as a human achievement [and] that’s how we chose to view it,” Gosling said during a press conference for the movie in Venice, according to The Telegraph.
