First Man IMAX Featurette

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.

A new First Man IMAX featurette has arrived online to show how Damien Chazelle and his cinematographer Linus Sandgren wanted to immerse audiences in the intensity and excitement of the moon landing through the IMAX format. The wonder of this historic event in history is made all the more powerful on the screen when the film switches from the Super 16mm film used to shoot the rest of the film to the massive IMAX format.

However, before you watch the featurette, beware that it spoils how IMAX is used in the movie and also shows a lot of the moon landing itself, which is from the end of the movie. Read More »

You probably know the photo: it’s him, standing somewhat removed from the phalanx of people representing both the exuberant modern musical and Moonlight, the actual winner, with a slight, bemused smile.

That distinctive look, the sense that he’s sharing a private thought (sometimes funny, sometimes not) with himself alone, is one that you can find when you watch most of his work throughout the 2010s, all the way through his latest film, First Man.
