'First Man' Blu-Ray Bonus Feature Takes Ryan Gosling to Space Camp (Exclusive Clip)

For anyone who is a fan of all things space, watching the epic movie "First Man" starring Ryan Gosling and directed by Damien Chazelle is an absolute must. 

Now the movie will be yours to own on Digital HD on Jan. 8 and on 4K Blu-ray, Blu-ray and DVD from Jan. 22.

In addition to the movie itself, there are a number of bonus features including deleted scenes, a feature commentary and featurettes that dive deep into how the movie was made.

A new exclusive clip from those features follows at the cast as they tour genuine spacecraft that have left the Earth and returned home. "Everything here is from the moon," says one NASA technician showing Ryan Gosling (who plays Neil Armstrong) around.

"Seeing the Apollo 11 capsule was really wonderful to help ground us in the reality of it,"Gosling said.

"Just seeing a Saturn V rocket laying on its side gives you an idea of what these guys were climbing into and what they were doing," said Kyle Chandler, who plays Deke Slayton.

"When I was first cast in this, the thing I was most excited about was actually going to Space Camp," says Corey Stoll, who plays Buzz Aldrin. "Since I was a kid I've wanted to do that."

When Scott's application to the NASA astronaut training program was turned down, he was naturally upset...as any 6-year-old boy would be. He chose instead to write as much as he possibly could about science, technology and space exploration. He graduated from The University of Coventry and received his training on Fleet Street in London. He still hopes to be the first journalist in space.
