Watch the first trailer for David Bowie biopic Stardust

The film offers a glimpse of David before he was Bowie

A trailer has been released for the David Bowie biopic, Stardust, which tells the origin story of one of the world’s most revered musical and cultural icons. 

The film, starring singer and actor Johnny Flynn in the lead role, tracks Bowie as he sets out on a tour of the US and creates his alter-ego, Ziggy Stardust. It was premiered virtually at the 2020 Tribeca film festival.

The official synopsis says: “In 1971, a 24-year-old David Bowie (Flynn) embarks on his first road trip to America with Mercury Records publicist Ron Oberman (Marc Maron), only to be met with a world not yet ready for him.”

It continues: “Stardust offers a glimpse behind the curtain of the moments that inspired the creation of Bowie’s first and most memorable alter ego, Ziggy Stardust, capturing the turning point that cemented his career as one of the world’s greatest cultural icons.”

Stardust is due for release November 25. Watch the first official trailer below:
