A new movie that looks back at David Bowie’s unexpected passing affecting a fictional couple in ways they’d never imagine is set for release, with its new teaser trailer out now.
Entitled Speed of Life, taking from Bowie’s 1997 album Low and its title track, a first glimpse into the movie was seen at the Atlanta Film Festival. A synopsis of the movie says: “In 2016, David Bowie’s death creates a rift in time and space. June and Edward are in the midst of an argument when Edward suddenly falls into the wormhole created by Bowie’s death, vanishing without a trace. In 2040, June continues to mourn the loss of Edward while facing the dark reality of her approaching 60th birthday, when she will be locked away along with the rest of her society’s senior citizens. Unwilling to disappear, June begins to plan her escape when Edward suddenly reappears in her life. June has spent 24 years without Edward, but for Edward it has been mere moments.”
The movie is directed by Liz Manashil, with Allison Tolman and Ray Santiago playing the young couple. Ann Dowd plays the aged-up version of June, as well. The movie is set for release on the 10th of January next year, which is the 4th anniversary of Bowie’s passing. It will become available on Apple TV, Amazon Prime Video, Google Play, and other streaming services, to be announced soon.
A Bowie biopic is in the works as well. Title Stardust, it tackles the 1971 tour that gave birth to the enigmatic alter-ego of the rocker. The film has no authorization from Bowie’s estate though, with Bowie’s son Duncan Jones saying that his father’s music will not be included if ever it pushes through.
