David Bowie Documentary ‘Moonage Daydream’ Gets Release Date

The new David Bowie documentary, Moonage Daydream, now has a release date for all territories outside of Japan. The global theatrical release of Moonage Daydream has been announced for Friday, 16th September.

The forthcoming documentary, directed by Brett Morgen (Kurt Cobain: Montage Of Heck), is the first David Bowie feature film to be officially sanctioned by the late artist’s estate. The film features archival narration from Bowie himself, as well as plenty of Bowie originals in the soundtrack.

Distribution rights for the film are with Neon (North America) and Universal Pictures Content Group (global), while HBO Documentary Films are in charge of releasing Moonage Daydream to streaming and pay TV.

Moonage Daydream has been a five-year long project for Morgen and his team. The film not only covers Bowie’s legendary music career, but spotlights the artist’s work in film, dance, painting, screenwriting, acting, sculpture and more. The David Bowie estate provided Morgen with complete access to Bowie’s personal archives, including all of his master recordings.

The film’s official trailer begins with a voiceover from US television presenter Dick Cavett. The audio is lifted from Bowie’s appearance on The Dick Cavett Show in December 1974. The next voice we hear is Bowie’s own. “All people, no matter who they are all wish they’d appreciated life more,” he says. The trailer concludes with Bowie saying, “Life is fantastic.”

Moonage Daydream is described as an immersive cinematic experience and it’ll be showing at IMAX later this year.
