Having wowed us with Whiplash and La La Land, acclaimed filmmaker Damien Chazelle is now taking us into space with First Man, this Golden Globe nominated drama about Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon. Follow the gripping and captivating true story as it arrives on Digital on 4th February, 2019 and on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand on 18th February, 2019 from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.

From Academy Award winning director Damien Chazelle, First Man stars Ryan Gosling (La La Land,The Big Short) as Neil Armstrong and Claire Foy (The Crown, Breathe) as Janet Armstrong in the heroic and emotionally driven journey through a pivotal moment in the history of mankind. Receiving two Golden Globe nominations for Best Supporting Actress (Foy) and Best Original Score (Justin Hurwitz), the critically acclaimed film is packed with bonus features including 37 minutes of deleted scenes and special featurettes showing behind-the-scenes looks at creating the film.

Based on the book First Man: The Life of Neil A. Armstrong by James R. Hansen, First Man is the riveting story behind the first manned mission to the moon, focusing on Neil Armstrong and the decade leading to the historic Apollo 11 flight. A visceral and intimate account told from Armstrong’s perspective, the film explores the triumphs and the cost—on Armstrong, his family, his colleagues and the nation itself—of one of the most dangerous missions in history.
