The Apollo 11 Moon Landing mission made history with Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin being the first humans to walk on the Moon. The story of the men and women who made this extraordinary feat happen will be told over and over, and the latest iteration of this comes from David Fairhead. Armstrong tells the story of Neil Armstrong as told by those who knew him growing up to those who knew him after his historic space mission.
The film had its premiere here in London this evening with Dara O’Briain, Maggie Aderin-Pocock, David Fairhead (director) and a US astronaut Nicole Stott were on the red carpet, and we were there to meet them.
Colin Hart and Brent Hart were on the red carpet and conducted these interviews.
Armstrong is out in UK & Irish cinemas on the 12th of July.
Armstrong Premiere Interviews
Directed by David Fairhead, ARMSTRONG is an exceptional and timely new feature documentary celebrating the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing, brought to you by the team behind the box-office hit SPITFIRE and the award winning THE LAST MAN ON THE MOON.
Dramatic, moving & deeply human, ARMSTRONG is the definitive story of Neil Armstrong – the first man on the moon. From his childhood in rural Ohio, through aerial combat in Korea, to his first steps on the Moon – and unwanted celebrity status that ensued. It is the story of a quiet, determined man who became an aviator, astronaut, husband, father and reluctant hero.
Neil Armstrong’s words are narrated by Harrison Ford and the film weaves together breath-taking NASA footage, re-mastered archive material and never-before-seen home movies, to tell the incredible untold story of a determined family man who became a global icon.
ARMSTRONG also includes major interviews with his family, an exceptional cast of fellow astronauts and aviators, those who knew him in his youth and later life, together with newly filmed sequences at some of the key locations from his life story.
