Trailer released for new David Bowie documentary, Moonage Daydream: Watch

The first trailer for 'Moonage Daydream', a new film about David Bowie, has been unveiled. Watch it below. 

Footage in the trailer shows Bowie emerging on-stage during the Ziggy Stardust era, before a voiceover by the late artist recites a passage from 'Mr. Rice's Secret', a film in which he starred in 1998. In the passage, he says: "It's what you do in life that's important, not how much time you have."

The film features unreleased 35mm and 16mm footage from Bowie's personal archives, and has been approved by the late artist's estate. It premiered at Cannes Film Festival last night (23rd May), and will get a release across cinemas this September.

Brett Morgen, known for his work on 'Kurt Cobain: Montage Of Heck', directed, wrote and produced the new film, which was last year described in a Variety report as "neither documentary nor biography". Tony Visconti, Bowie's longtime producer, was reportedly enlisted as the film's music producer.
