Last night’s TIFF premiere of “First Man” brought out Apollo astronaut Al Worden, who appeared on stage for a Q&A after the screening with director Damien Chazelle, stars Ryan Gosling and Claire Foy, and Neil Armstrong’s sons.
Worden flew on Apollo 15 and walked on the moon. First Man tells the story of Apollo 11 and the first men who had this incredible experience.
Asked about the veracity of “First Man,” Worden had only kind words. But he less generous over all to “science fiction movies and those set in space.” He said “Gravity” was the worst movie ever made, but he liked Clint Eastwood’s “Space Cowboys.” Why? Watch the video below:
