    Biggest issue I have with this is they appear to have put a lot of emphasis on wether he’s going to make it or not.

    They managed to make a cracking film out of Apollo 13. Hopefully it can be done again with this.

    I'm looking forward to JK Simmons being in charge of the flight simulations and every time they screw up he gives it "Not my telemetry. You're rushing"

    The trailer seems to cover all of NA’s astronaut ‘crises’.
    X-15 Test Pilot
    Gemini 8 spin
    Ejecting from the LLRV
    The Apollo 1 fire
    Taking manual control of the LEM on descent to the moon
    It makes me wonder what the movie is actually going to concentrate on.

    Can't believe this is from the same director as Whiplash - it looks generic as hell.

    That and the fact it's a biopic about a really famous story that everyone already knows. Biopics tend to be really bland filmmaking wise. I'd like to think Damien Chazelle is doing something to make the film stand out - because so far he's proven to be a very creative and talented director - and that the trailer is doing a bad job of showing it but I highly doubt it.

    It's worth noting that he's not credited as a writer for this film, even though he wrote Whiplash and La La Land.

    I like Gosling but I have to agree that the trailer isn't doing a lot for me. Maybe it's just a weak trailer and the movie itself will be good.

    Really looking forward to this but the trailer's soundtrack seems a bit more "prep for alien invasion" than anything else....

    It does feel an awful lot like treading the same ground as Apollo 13. However I have faith in the cast and director. Chazelle is 2 for 2 so far with me.

    This looks like it'll be a terrific companion piece to The Right Stuff and Apollo 13. Definitely seeing this.

    Just love watching shots across the moon looking back across space to Earth so this'll have to be a big screen watch for me.

    Looks like only Christopher Nolan has the clout to get studios to splash out on some 15-perf 70mm celluloid reels nowadays, as I see that the BFI are showing the LieMAX Digital version.

    BFI IMAX
    Just noticed that they had the 70mm reel of Interstellar showing last weekend though, which I might’ve made the trek down for!

    Only seen the trailer for the first time there now, crept up like La La Land (or more likely I’m sleeping with regards to trailers :)).
    Loved his 2 previous films and I love the look of this one. The aged film look appeals to me greatly - high hopes for this.
    Watched Apollo 13 on UHD last month and it was fantastic, can’t wait to see this !!
