🚨Ryan Gosling's First Man to Premiere at Venice Film Festival🚨 -
Damien Chazelle's First Man, which stars Ryan Gosling as astronaut Neil Armstrong, will have its world premiere at this year's Venice Film Festival. Though Chazelle is still an extremely young filmmaker, he has established himself as a perennial Oscar threat whenever he releases a new movie. Whiplash, which won Best Supporting Actor for J.K. Simmons, put Chazelle on the map, while La La Land (which tied an Oscar record for most nominations) took him into the stratosphere. After the success of those two outings, cinephiles are very interested to see how Chazelle's next film turns out. First Man was already generating positive buzz due to the pedigree of the principal players involved, but footage screened at CinemaCon and the official trailer illustrated it could live up to the hype. As it turns out, viewers won't have much longer to find out if Chazelle has another Academy darling under his belt. According to Variety, First Man will kick off the Venice Film Festival with a showing on Wednesday, August 29. Obviously, Universal is hoping to repeat the La La Land formula; the acclaimed musical opened Venice back in 2016 and immediately became one of the top films to beat on the awards circuit. This is a positive development for First Man's Oscar chances, since previous films to lead Venice, such as Birdman, Gravity, and Black Swan were all top contenders in their respective years of release. All of those movies ended up winning in main categories like Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Actress, so it's definitely a smart play on Universal's part to start the First Man awards campaign in Venice.
