‘Moonage Daydream’ – Bowie Documentary Full Trailer Released
The full trailer for Moonage Daydream, the David Bowie documentary due for release on 16 September, has been shared. The film will be an immersive experience, and in addition to its theatrical release, the film will also be available to view in selected IMAX theatres. Watch the new trailer below.
With Moonage Daydream, Brett Morgen (The Kid Stays in the Picture, Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck, Jane) presents a genre-defying immersion into the art and sounds of David Bowie. Considered one of the greatest artists of our time, David Bowie has been moving culture for over 50 years. Moonage Daydream is the first film to be supported by the David Bowie Estate, which granted Morgen unprecedented access to their collection.
Told through sublime, kaleidoscopic imagery, personal archived footage, unseen performances, and anchored by David Bowie’s own music and words, Moonage Daydream invites audiences to immerse themselves in the unique world that is “Bowie”.
In 2018, Morgen was granted unprecedented access to Bowie’s archives which encompasses a lifetime of materials, including an extensive catalogue of unseen footage and personal collection of his own art and poetry. Morgen spent four years assembling the film and another 18 months designing the soundscape, animations, and colour palette.
For the film, the sound team, featuring Bowie’s long-time collaborator, friend and music producer Tony Visconti and Academy Award®-winning sound mixer Paul Massey (Bohemian Rhapsody) remixed and translated Bowie’s original stems for a theatrical environment that will be presented in 12.0, 5.0, Atmos, and 7.1/5.1.
Throughout his career, across generations, Bowie taught us that our differences were our strengths. With Moonage Daydream, Bowie provides us with a roadmap of how to survive the 21st century, inviting audiences to celebrate his legacy and enduring influence like never before.
The documentary features 40 remastered songs from Bowie’s song catalogue from 1970 through 1977. The songs include Changes, Starman, Ziggy Stardust, The Jean Genie, All The Young Dudes, Life on Mars, Rebel Rebel, Fame, Young Americans, and Golden Years.
