The acclaimed new film looks like a must-see for David Bowie fans

It currently has a 93% score on Rotten Tomatoes.

One of the major new trailers to hit the web this week was for Moontime Daydreama film about the life and career of David Bowie.

Having premiered at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year, Rotten Tomatoes has already achieved a 93% score and has been described as a “cross-genre cinematic experience” that includes never-before-seen concert footage of the music icon.

“Moonage Daydream is an immersive cinematic experience; an audiovisual space odyssey that not only sheds light on the enigmatic legacy of David Bowie, but also serves as a guide to living a fulfilling and meaningful life in the 21st century,” reads the synopsis.

“Moonage Daydream is not a documentary. It’s a genre-bending cinematic experience based on one of the most iconic and global rock stars of all time and is destined to become one of the defining cultural moments of the year.”

Directed by Oscar-nominated filmmaker Brett Morgen, who previously helmed the acclaimed Kurt Cobain documentary Montage of Heck, Moonage Daydream was made with the full support of Bowie’s estate and is set to feature many of the singer’s greatest tracks.

The film hits IMAX on September 16th and in theaters on September 23rd.
