The final trailer for "Fly Me to the Moon," a film born from a rumor about the first moon landing in human history, starring Scarlett Johansson, Channing Tatum, and Woody Harrelson, has been released. NASA, who is fighting to believe in the success of the "Apollo Project," and government officials who are promoting the first "moon landing" in human history and planning to shoot a fake video in case the plan fails. With each of their thoughts, the countdown to the launch of Apollo 11 begins...

The final trailer shows Apollo 11 waiting for launch, along with a voice saying, "We pray for the success of Apollo 11." The project is led by NASA's honest launch manager, Cole (Channing Tatum). "This national project will put an American on the moon. It will be the first great achievement for mankind." Cole's voice, which is trying to make the Apollo mission a success, inspires the NASA staff, and the three astronauts heading off on their important mission receive a huge round of applause.

Kelly (Scarlett Johansson), a PR marketing specialist, watches this scene, saying, "They'll be more famous than the Beatles." Apollo 11 is waiting for launch to achieve the first human achievement. As the countdown continues, Moe (Woody Harrelson), a government official, issues a top-secret mission to Kelly, saying, "The whole world is watching. Please proceed with the preparations in secret. Another moon landing." Kelly can't believe her ears, "Make a fake video?" Moe says, "Failure is not an option. America's prestige is at stake."

In 1969, the space race was fierce. After World War II, the United States and the Soviet Union entered the Cold War, and the Vietnam War broke out in 1955. The relationship between the two countries had deteriorated to the point that it was called a proxy war between the two great powers. Meanwhile, the space race between the US and the Soviet Union accelerated to demonstrate their technological superiority through the development of space technology. In 1961, Gagarin of the Soviet Union succeeded in the world's first manned space flight. Following in his footsteps, the US promoted the "Apollo Project" and aimed to succeed in the first "moon landing" in mankind, risking world dominance.

"Stop faking! All our efforts up to now will be for naught," a voice of opposition shouts, while shocking scenes of past launch failures, a lunar set built by NASA, and images of astronauts boarding the ship are "rapidly shot". "Orders from above are absolute. This is not just a race to the moon. This is a battle for world dominance," threatens Mo. NASA staff, PR professionals who were asked to make fake footage, and government officials all worked together to make the plan a success. With their respective thoughts intertwined and the whole world watching, the time for Apollo 11 to launch finally came.

Was the Apollo 11 moon landing witnessed by the whole world real or fake? The movie "Fly Me to the Moon" will be released in theaters nationwide on Friday, July 19, 2024.
