Watch: Never-before-seen footage from NASA’s moon mission takes the forefront in ‘Apollo 11’ documentary trailer

The Todd Douglas Miller directed film is set for release later this year

A trailer for the forthcoming documentary Apollo 11, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, has arrived and it features new footage from the lead-up to NASA’s first manned journey to the moon.

The trailer showcases some of the unseen archival footage from the mission, including exclusive shots of Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin getting into their suits, and brief teasers of their historic first steps. “The enormity of this event is something that only history will be able to judge,” one of the uncatalogued recordings in the trailer voices.

“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 movie’s description reads. “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.”

The forthcoming Todd Douglas Miller directed film is set for release later this year.
