Excellent documentary with a fantastic score. Good price if you have Google Rewards credit to spend.

From director Todd Douglas Miller (Dinosaur 13) comes a cinematic event 50 years in the making. 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 one that first put men on the moon, and forever made Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin into household names. 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.

Sorry being a bit thick here, never bought from Google before. Have an android phone and tablet, a Fire tv, a Chromecast and a Samsung tv with its own cast capabilities... to watch on the tv do I have to cast from the android device e.g. tablet?
Sad to think the pinnacle of human endeavour was 50 years ago. 50;years before this, man was just getting the hang of biplanes.

No, just use youtube app on your TV.
Really amazing film. As a proper space geek and someone who avidly consumes anything I can find about it, especially the Apollo missions, massive bits of this film was footage I hadn't seen before. The quality is superb and the sound just as good.

In terms of the story, we all know what happened, but the way the film tells it it is genuinely tense. There's no voice over, the images and audio are allowed to explain what's happening with just occasional graphics or text saying the time, height, speed etc.
Cheers OP, been wanting to see this one and I read in multiple places that the 4K Blu-Ray is actually inferior to the 1080 version.

Bought. Heat!

I've discovered the Google Movie Player app on my tv!
Amazing film! I saw this at bluedot festival last year & was blown away. It as introduced by matt morton, the soundtrack composer who did all the music by buying & using instruments from the period.

He also did a Q&A. It was about midnight it was shown as we then were able to go & sit underneath the lovell telescope which had "live" (but 50 years later) visual projection onto it with the audio from nasa & apollo as we listened to them landing on the moon. AMAZING!

Yep, was there, an amazing experience, as was the whole festival tbh. Loved Dallas Campbell's talks, especially the interview with James Burke.
