Coming to Cinemas 12 September 2019

The mission you know. The man you don't.

Harrison Ford narrates this documentary on Neil Armstrong's life story, from his childhood in Ohio to his trip to the Moon—and beyond.

With the support of the Armstrong family, the film details his near-death experiences as a fighter pilot in Korea, the drama and excitement of the Gemini 8 and Apollo 11 missions, and the challenges that came with his extraordinary fame.

With the 50th anniversary of man's first steps on the moon just days away, movies dealing with the event have been thick on the land for awhile. But even if you think you've seen enough, "Armstrong" is worth your time.
