Stardust, the upcoming film that recounts David Bowie’s first-ever U.S. publicity tour in 1971, has received its first trailer following a teaser clip earlier this year. Starring Johnny Flynn in the lead role, the new visual features Marc Maron as his publicist Ron Oberman and Jena Malone as Angie Bowie as we witness the birth of the Ziggy Stardust persona. Watch it below.
The official synopsis for the film reads: “Meet David before Bowie. One of the greatest icons in music history. But who was the young man behind the many faces? 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. ‘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 arrives in theaters and VOD on November 25.
