David Bowie’s Trailer for His New Short Film Is Trippy and Confusing, But You Could Have Guessed That

By

Last month, David Bowie released a two-minute snippet of his new track ★ (pronounced "Blackstar") off his new album ★ (pronounced "Blackstar"), and now he's released a trailer for its accompanying short film ★ (pronounced, well, you get it). Directed by Johan Renck, the full film premieres Thursday, November 19, at 3:50 EST on Palladia and it will also air at Brooklyn’s Nitehawk Cinema that night. Until then, think about eclipses and old tombs and which emoji you'd choose to title your conceptual art film — I'd go with the whale.
