To commemorate NASA’s 60th anniversary on Monday, October 1, 2018, Universal Pictures is treating audiences to free early screenings of First Man. Starring Ryan Gosling as Neil Armstrong, the movie tells the story behind the first manned mission to the moon and the decade leading to the historic Apollo 11 flight.
Directed by Damien Chazelle, First Man presents a visceral and intimate account told from Armstrong’s perspective. Based on the book by James R. Hansen, the film explores one of the most dangerous missions in history and the triumphs and the costs that went with it —on Armstrong, his family, his colleagues and the nation itself.
