Watch The Official Trailer For David Bowie Documentary 'Moonage Daydream'

David Bowie fans are finally getting a glimpse of the much-anticipated documentary Moonage Daydream, the first-ever officially sanctioned film about Bowie.

Director Brett Morgen's "cinematic experience," Moonage Daydream, will arrive in theaters on September 16 with a television/streaming release to follow.

The trailer opens with an audio clip of Bowie ruminating on the concept of a "deeper existence," juxtaposed with another clip of the cultural icon looking back on his adolescent dreams:

"Ever since I was 16 I was determined to have the greatest adventures any one person could ever have," he says.

The film's producers say Moonage Daydream is unlike any other rock doc. Though it employs never-before-release footage, archival performances and of course Bowie's music, they describe Moonage Daydream as a "feature-length experiential cinematic odyssey [which] explores David Bowie's creative, musical and spiritual journey. The film is guided by David Bowie's own narration."

Beyond being granted access to Bowie's personal archives, Morgen was entrusted by Bowie's estate with final-cut privileges on the film. So there was no one from Bowie's estate steering the direction of the film.

"[They] never told me I had to include this song or that or make any changes," Morgen told Rolling Stone. "Right from the start, it was, 'This isn't David's film. He's not going to see it. This is David Bowie by Brett Morgen. Make it yours."

Screened a handful of times at film festivals since its debut in May, Moonage Daydream has received overwhelmingly positive reviews from publications worldwide.
