David Bowie Movies

Here’s a shocking fact for you: David Bowie, the Thin White Duke himself, turned 65 this year. In tribute to the anniversary of Ziggy Stardust’s birth, Empire Magazine asked its readers to imagine what certain movies would look like if they starred David Bowie. Empire‘s readers acted quickly and created several wonderful photoshopped movie posters including this Labyrinth inspired poster seen here. Some of the other great creations include such imagined films as the graphic novel adaptation Frank Miller’s Suffragette City, Brian De Palma’s classic glam crime film Starface, and Pixar’s animated masterpiece Bow-E.

Check all of the Bowie inspired titles over at the Empire forums.

    n 1975, Bowie achieved his first major American crossover success with the number-one single “Fame” and the hit album Young Americans, which the singer characterised as “plastic soul”. The sound constituted a radical shift in style that initially alienated many of his UK devotees. He then confounded the expectations of both his record label and his American audiences by recording the minimalist album Low (1977)—the first of three collaborations with Brian Eno over the next two years. This so-called “Berlin Trilogy” albums all reached the UK top five and received lasting critical praise.
