The first trailer for Moonage Daydream, a new film about David Bowie, arrived on Monday (May 23), ahead of the film’s premiere at the Cannes Film Festival the same day.
The footage shows Bowie emerging on-stage in the Ziggy Stardust era, before a Bowie voiceover recites a passage from Mr. Rice’s Secret, a film in which he starred in 1998. “It’s what you do in life that’s important, not how much time you have,” he says over rousing music.
The movie, written, directed and produced by Brett Morgan, is described as a “cinematic odyssey.” Tony Visconti, Bowie’s longtime producer, served as the film’s music producer.
“Bowie cannot be defined, he can be experienced,” Morgen, who directed the 2015 film Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck, recently said of the project at 2022’s CinemaCon. “That is why we crafted ‘Moonage Daydream’ to be a unique cinematic experience.”
The movie, which features some never-before-seen footage from Bowie’s personal archives, performances, and music, delves into the singer’s expertise in dance, painting, sculpture and various other works.
Moonage Daydream is scheduled to hit theaters in September. The documentary is made with the blessings of Bowie’s family.
The late singer’s wife Iman once explained her hesitance to authorize a biopic to Variety, saying, “We always ask each other, ‘Would he do it?’ He wouldn’t.”
