Armstrong, who died in 2012, had a storied career in military, academics and engineering -- becoming the first person to set foot on the moon in 1969.

The film about his life reunites Gosling with La La Land director Damien Chazelle and is set to hit theaters on Oct. 12, 2018. Gosling tweeted about taking on the iconic role in July, writing, "Incredibly honored to be a part of telling this story."
