Moonage Daydream – The David Bowie documentary gets a new trailer

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”.

Designed from conception as a unique cinematic experience, the film will be released around the world on September 16th*, with IMAX engagements in select territories. The previously announced film by visionary filmmaker Brett Morgen will be distributed by NEON in the US with Universal Pictures International launching the film internationally.

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.

Executive Producers are Hartwig Masuch, Kathy Rivkin-Daum, and Justus Haerder for BMG; Michael Rapino, Heather Parry, and Ryan Kroft for Live Nation Productions; Bill Zysblat, Tom Cyrana, Aisha Cohen, and Eileen D’Arcy from RZO; Billy Gerber, and Debra Eisenstadt. BMG and Live Nation Productions financed the film.  The team also includes: Bowie’s long-time collaborator, friend and music producer Tony Visconti; Academy Award®-winning sound mixer Paul Massey (Bohemian Rhapsody) and David Giammarco (Ford v. Ferrari); the Academy Award®-winning sound design team of John Warhurst and Nina Hartstone (Bohemian Rhapsody); and VFX Producer Stefan Nadelman (Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck).

MOONAGE DAYDREAM will release exclusively in IMAX on 16th September and wide in UK Cinemas from 23rd September
