Watch the first trailer for David Bowie biopic Stardust
Oct 30 2020
The late David Bowie was one of rock's most iconic musicians.
He then sadly takes a sad flight to the USA to meet the "one guy at Mercurcy Records who doesn't hate your new record with every bone in his body", his publicist Ron Oberman, played by Glow star Marc Maron.
Much like judging a book by the cover, you should never judge a movie by the trailer.
"For some he's the thin white Duke, for some he's Gigi Stardust, for some it's David of the 80s, and in 1971 our film is set before all", Gabriel said.
Flynn has written a new song for the film, Good Ol' Jane, which is created to reflect the influence that The Velvet Underground had on Bowie during that period.
The title of the film is "Stardust" and it comes from IFC Films. And then, move over Alain de Botton, as Bowie asks philosophically: "Rock star, or someone impersonating a rock star... what's the difference?" Well, that's the story behind Stardust, a new biopic on the music legend's life that tells his journey from obscure and struggling artist to becoming one of the biggest stars on earth. It shows Bowie, played by Johnny Flynn, navigating his way through his first U.S. press tour in the early 70s as he attempts to break into the American market, assisted by Mercury Records publicist Rob Oberman (Marc Maron).
Range also discussed the challenges of bringing the film out amid the pandemic.
"But on the other hand, I guess studios are not releasing things so it is a good time for independent films".
