"First Man" was written by Josh Singer ("Spotlight") and Nicole Perlman ("Guardians of the Galaxy"), and also stars Patrick Fugit, Ciaran Hinds, Ethan Embry, and Shea Whigham. We see Armstrong getting off the space capsule to earn the title of 'First Man on the Moon'. The film is based on James Hansen's book "First Man: A Life Of Neil A. Armstrong". The film includes interviews with reporters, asking him hard questions. Chazelle explains: "we wanted to tell the story about one of the most epic accomplishments in human history, but root it very much in the intimate and the day to day details of what it was actually like".

While Armstrong is confident in his future achievement, his wife Janet is not so sure. Neil Armstrong faces questions from politicians, and is even asked by his son, "Do you think you're coming back?"

"First Man" opens in theaters October 12 via Universal Pictures.
