Not to be con­fused with

La La Land direc­tor

Damien Chazelle and Ryan Gosling’s new cin­e­matic ef­fort First Man, which is about Neil Arm­strong and the Apollo II moon land­ing, The First comes from an equally es­teemed cre­ator — House of Cards’ Beau Wil­limon – and stars an­other mem­ber of the Hol­ly­wood big league: Sean Penn. Wil­limon and Penn are set­ting their sights a lit­tle far­ther, on Mars, in a show that ex­plores the nu­ances of colonis­ing an as-yet un­sul­lied planet. Penn plays as­tro­naut Tom Hagerty, while Natascha Mcel­hone is a “vi­sion­ary aero­space mag­nate”.
