Apollo 11 takes the public behind-the-scenes of the groundbreaking NASA space mission and first lunar landing. Showcasing exquisite never-before-seen audio and video footage of key historical events and remarkable moments of camaraderie, the riveting documentary has received five stars from critics (David Fear, Rolling Stone) and will be available on Blu-rayTM, DVD, Digital, and via the digital movie app MOVIES ANYWHERE, as well as On Demand on May 14, 2019 from NEON and Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.
From director Todd Douglas Miller (Dinosaur 13) comes a cinematic event 50 years in the making. Crafted from a newly discovered trove of 65mm footage, and more than 11,000 hours of uncatalogued audio recordings, Apollo 11 takes us straight to the heart of NASA’s most celebrated mission—the one that first put men on the moon, and forever made Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin into household names. Immersed in the perspectives of the astronauts, the team in Mission Control, and the millions of spectators on the ground, we vividly experience those momentous days and hours in 1969 when humankind took a giant leap into the future.
Meticulously crafted and “entirely awe-inspiring” (Glenn Kenny, The New York Times), Apollo 11 bears witness to an extraordinary act of unity and resolve, to achieve one of the greatest and most complex feats in human history. Transporting audiences back in time with scenes depicting an estimated one million average Americans viewing the live launch, Apollo 11 on Blu-rayT, DVD and Digital is a must own immersive experience!
