First Man Movie Photos

It’s been nearly 40 years since we last landed on the moon. Our final mission to our orbiting satellite was on December 11, 1972 when Apollo 17 touched down on the surface.

Sam Worthington is going back to Australia. The actor is set to star in Drift, a surfing drama that will be co-directed by Morgan O’Neill and Ben Nott from a script by Morgan O’Neill.

Might be fun. [Variety]

Meanwhile, after the break, The Three Stooges don’t have a starting stooge after all. Read More »
