Oscar winning director Damien Chazelle’s film will be released by Universal Pictures International India, read a statement.
Gosling portrays Armstrong in the film, based on James R Hansen's book. The actor is joined by Golden Globe winning The Crown star, Claire Foy, who plays Armstrong's wife Janet.
Chazelle said: "There are many other stories that tell about the moon landing, but I wanted to know what it felt like in all the years leading up to that first footstep on the moon, as well as what it felt like to be that man who put the first footprint on the moon.
"Only a handful of people in history have ever gone to the moon, and Neil Armstrong was first. Even more importantly, it's an emotional story of a guy who's trying to be a father and husband while undergoing this cosmic journey."
First Man premiered as the opening film at the prestigious 75th Venice Film Festival and received rave reviews from viewers and critics alike.
