Damien Chazelle already has multiple hits under his belt and an Oscar to boot. But as many people have noted, he’s yet to do anything outside of the music genre with Whiplash and La La Land having a heavy focus on musical elements. For First Man, he’s looking to do his first biopic and first non-musical story. The trailer released today displays how different an approach he is going for, bringing a visceral and intense experience of the journey of the first men on the moon. Check the new trailer out below:
First Man stars Ryan Gosling, Claire Foy, Corey Stoll, Kyle Chandler, Jason Clarke, Shea Whigham, and Christopher Abbott. It is set to hit theaters October 12th.
