“I’m an alligator, I’m a mama-papa comin’ for you, I’m the space invader”. Freak out! Watch new second UK Trailer for Moonage Daydream. The Brett Morgen documentary for the space cowboy David Bowie.
After learning about the film’s release date earlier this month. Universal Pictures have now released this full trailer. Ironically the film is named after one of my favourite Bowie songs which grabbed my attention very quickly.
We are big fans of Morgen’s Kurt Cobain doc Cobain: Montage Of Heck, not your straight forward type of Biopic. The Thin White Duke biopic promises to be an ‘immersive experience’. Told old through sublime, kaleidoscopic, never-before-seen footage. Performance and music, the film is guided by Bowie’s narration and is the first film to be officially sanctioned by Bowie’s estate.
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 2017, the estate presented Morgen with over 5 million assets. Included in the collection were rare and never-before seen drawings, recordings, films, and journals. Morgen spent four years assembling the film and another 18 months designing the soundscape, animations, and color 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.
Moonage Daydream will ‘freak’ you out exclusively in IMAX on 16th September and wide in UK Cinemas from 23rd September.
