We’re finally getting our first look at the movie Stardust, the David Bowie Ziggy Stardust origin story moment produced for the big screen ala Bohemian Rhapsody. Variety has the exclusive embed which we’ve included below.
The clip features a scene in which Bowie, played by Flynn, discusses his prospects in the U.S. with Ron Oberman, a publicist at Mercury Records, played by Maron. When Bowie reports that Mercury has doubts about his album “The Man Who Sold the World” and U.S. tour, Oberman says he has no such doubts. “I think you are going to be the biggest goddam star in America,” he says. “Seriously man this is a great record. It’s a great record. It’s just no one knows how to sell you in America.”
Check it out. Industry professionals will get their first screening of the film today, and from there I’m sure we’ll be hearing a lot more on when it can finally be released. It was supposed to debut as part of the Tribeca Film Festival.
The film was written by Christopher Bell and Gabriel Range and produced by Paul Van Carter, Nick Taussig and Matt Code. Executive producers are Fabien Westerhoff, Christopher Figg and Robert Whitehouse.
