“Who and what is David Bowie?” in 2 days time rock icon David Bowie would have been 74. 50 years ago that icon took the first steps to become that legend, in Stardust we’ll meet David before he was Bowie.
Ahead of it’s UK release Vertigo Releasing have unveiled the UK Trailer. The film chronicles the young David Bowie‘s first visit to the US in 1971. Going to the State for some might not mean much apart from a holiday, this was a trip that inspired the invention of his iconic alter ego, Ziggy Stardust.
Johnny Flynn plays the Man Who Sold The World who heads Stateside. In this film he’s a young man with an identity crisis professionally. This is NOT a biopic, but a film that’s taking a slice of rock history creating creating what’s hopefully entertaining film. Something closer to Rocket Man than an actual biopic, I’m actually looking forward to this!
