Duration: 141 min

Having kicked off the 2018 Venice Film Festival – following in the gargantuan footsteps of another of Chazelle’s masterpieces, La La Land – First Man is set to make waves come awards season. The film revisits the life of navy-pilot-turned-astronaut Neil Armstrong (La La Land’s Ryan Gosling), following his epic journey to becoming the first man to walk on the moon during the 1969 Apollo 11 space mission. Scripted by Spotlight writer Josh Singer, First Man spans Armstrong’s adventure from his acceptance into NASA’s astronaut programme in 1961 to his world-changing space walk eight years later – and all the sacrifices in between.

Contains infrequent strong language and moderate threat.
