IMAX Releases Exclusive First Man Art

In the riveting story of NASA’s historic mission to land a man on the moon starring Ryan Gosling as Neil Armstrong, Oscar-winning director Damien Chazelle captured the breathtaking lunar sequences of the film with IMAX’s extremely high-resolution 2D film cameras… there is no better, more stunning way to experience this scene.

In addition to delivering crystal-clear images, the picture will expand in the lunar sequences by up to 26% more than standard screens, only in IMAX, allowing moviegoers to experience the film the way it was truly intended. Couple those awe-inspiring images on the biggest screen with IMAX’s heart-pounding, one-of-a-kind sound technology, and audiences will be fully immersed and feel like they are in this story.

On the heels of their six-time Academy Award®-winning smash, La La Land, Oscar®-winning director Damien Chazelle and star Ryan Gosling reteam for Universal Pictures’ First Man, the riveting story of NASA’s mission to land a man on the moon, focusing on Neil Armstrong and the years 1961-1969. A visceral, first-person account, based on the book by James R. Hansen, the movie will explore the sacrifices and the cost—on Armstrong and on the nation—of one of the most dangerous missions in history.

Written by Academy Award® winner Josh Singer (Spotlight), the drama is produced by Wyck Godfrey & Marty Bowen (The Twilight Saga, The Fault in Our Stars) through their Temple Hill Entertainment banner, alongside Chazelle and Gosling. Isaac Klausner (The Fault in Our Stars) executive produces. DreamWorks Pictures co-finances the film.

The IMAX release of First Man will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience® with proprietary IMAX DMR® (Digital Re-mastering) technology. The crystal-clear images, coupled with IMAX's customised theatre geometry and powerful digital audio, create a unique environment that will make audiences feel as if they are in the movie.

Universal Pictures’ First Man hits IMAX cinemas on October 12.
