What if Apollo 11 never actually made it? What if, in reality, Stanley Kubrick secretly shot the famous images of the moon landing in a studio, working for the US administration? This is the premise of a totally plausible conspiracy theory that takes us to swinging sixties London, where a stubborn CIA agent will never find Kubrick but instead is forced to team up with a lousy manager of a seedy rock band to develop the biggest con of all time, in this riotous, high-tempo action-comedy.
Based on a true conspiracy theory.

When Kidman is being given his initial brief, he is told that "In a few days' time we launch our 11th mission to the Moon". However Apollo 11 was not the 11th US Moon mission in that program, previously only Apollo 8 and Apollo 10 had gone to the Moon. Prior to that, the US had sent 6 Ranger lunar impact craft that were partly or fully successful, 5 Lunar Orbiter missions - all successful, and 7 Surveyor landers of which 5 landed successfully.
