As noted by NME, the trailer first appeared on "Jimmy Kimmel Live", where Gosling and Kimmel wore spacesuits for the "first-ever interview in space". Claire Foy, pulling double duty this fall with "First Man" and her starring role in "The Girl in the Spider's Web", plays Armstrong wife, Janet Shearon.

Ryan Gosling stars as iconic astronaut Neil Armstrong in the upcoming biopic First Man, and to celebrate the movie's first trailer, he and Jimmy Kimmel made a decision to head to space to chat about the film. We see Armstrong getting off the space capsule to earn the title of 'First Man on the Moon'. However, on viewing the trailer [VIDEO] of "First Man", it is clear that Armstrong went through some terrifying and uncertain days, training for his mission to the moon.

Based on James R. Hansen's 2005 book First Man: The Life of Neil A. Armstrong, the film chronicles the life of the American astronaut and his journey towards becoming the first man to land on the moon. Kyle Chandler, Corey Stoll, Jason Clarke and Brian d'Arcy James are also part of the cast, among others.

The film shows everything experienced by Armstrong from his days of training for the risky mission, to how it affected his family life, right through to the actual experience of the journey.

First Man has been given an October 12 release date by Universal Pictures, which is in the midst of one of the most crowded months of the year. 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".
