This weekend brings First Man to theaters, the latest film from Whiplash and La La Land director Damien Chazelle. However, this time around the director trades in jazz for the wonder of space as he tells the story of Neil Armstrong’s journey from the Earth to the moon. And he does it all with the help of IMAX.
