This summer is the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing. One of the ways the historical event is being recognized is with a new documentary about the first man to walk on the moon, astronaut Neil Armstrong. Titled “ARMSTRONG“, the documentary features the voice of Harrison Ford and is directed by David Fairhead (“Mission Control: The Unsung Heroes of Apollo” and “Spitfire“), and produced by Keith Haviland and Gareth Dodds (“The Last Man on the Moon“). The ARMSTRONG documentary will be available in both theaters and on VOD on July 12th, 2019.

Never-Before-Seen Photos & Videos
Part of what sets the ARMSTRONG documentary apart from other films that have chronicled the moon landing is the new materials that were assembled by the filmmakers. Thanks to the support of the Armstrong family, including his two sons Rick and Mark, ARMSTRONG features never-before-seen media that further detail Neil Armstrong’s incredible life. The unreleased footage and photos showcase Armstrong’s time as a test pilot, his service as a fighter pilot in Korea, his experiences on the Gemini 8 and Apollo 11 missions and challenges that he faced after becoming famous.
NERD NOTE: The Apollo computers had less processing power than the first iPhone that was released in 2007.
