Damian Lewis’ Transformation Into Disgraced Mayor Rob Ford Is The Most Interesting Thing You’ll See All Day

At The Playlist, we don’t make it common practice to post set pictures on our site. As we’ve said before, there’s not much to be gained by a set picture, particularly because they’re out of context, sometimes blurry or pixelated, and are hardly ever flattering to the production. However, sometimes, there is a set picture that are so strange and alarming that we feel it’s our moral duty to share with the world.

Damien Chazelle and Ryan Gosling’s Space Epic ‘First Man’ Dazzles at CinemaCon
Damien Chazelle may need to make more room on his mantlepiece for a second Oscar based on the reaction to the trailer debut of “First Man” at CinemaCon on Wednesday.

The “La La Land” auteur took the stage in Caesars Palace promising theater owners that he intended to take audiences on an “immersive journey” while dramatizing the story of Neil Armstrong’s mission to the moon. The goal is to bring moviegoers along with Armstrong and the crew of Appllo 11 “as they shot through the heavens and took those first few steps on the moon,” he said.

Ryan Gosling, who previously partnered with Chazelle on “La La Land,” plays Armstrong and “The Crown’s” Claire Foy takes on the role of his wife, Janet Shearon. The film won’t just focus on the space race, it will also dramatize the toll that these dangerous missions take on their loved ones back on Earth.
