Neon closed for the morning program at CinemaCon on Tuesday by presenting a couple of official trailers for upcoming releases The crimes of the future and its Sundance hit The fire of love while offering a first look and release date for Brett Morgan’s genre-bending work about the late legend David Bowie, Moonage Daydream.

He put it away for years until Lantos asked him if he had read it recently. “I’m sure it’s irrelevant now,” Cronenberg recalled, telling the producer he had worked with on previous films such as Crash. “He said it’s more relevant now than ever.”

Cronenberg said the film was shot in Athens, an ancient city that added the text. “I really hope you like it,” he added as he presented the trailer, which featured more shocking images of body horror, with Mortensen’s character offering, “I do not like what happens to my body, so I keep cut it up. “

It mixes thousands of hours of concert and performance footage of the icon who died of cancer in January 2016. Morgan is the filmmaker behind Jane, Cobain: Montage of Heck and the Oscar nominee On the ropes.

Neon Distribution President Elissa Federoff presented the footage, saying it is the first film to be sanctioned by Bowie’s property, and it is an aggregation of more than five million assets that provide “unfiltered access” thanks to master footage and concert footage that is never seen before, “rooted in his own insights.” She called Bowie “our superhero”. The recordings were a mix of concerts, animation, interviews and of course electrifying music, some of which featured Bowie as Ziggy Stardust.

Moonage Daydream producer Bill Gerber took the stage after Federoff. He praised Morgen for being the mastermind behind the film as “not only the conductor” but the sole editor of the massive enterprise. “Brett has handcrafted a sublime kaleidoscopic effort that only a true Bowie fan could imagine,” said the Star is Born producer. “It’s a movie [Bowie] would have liked to be made. “

Gerber introduced Morning, which praised Bowie as an inspirational figure who showed him in his youth that it was OK to be himself. “My differences were my strengths,” he said. “David Bowie is the perfect star for this moment.”

He said he made the film to play more like an experience. “My hope with this film is that the audience will find the same comfort and joy and hope that I experienced making this film. I hope the audience rocks out,” he said. Although he admitted that Tuesday’s presentation was not an ideal experience for him, as the exclusive footage contained the wrong color image and was not the version with color correction he had intended. “It was every filmmaker’s worst nightmare,” he revealed. “Hopefully you will see it in September. Thank you. It really is a great honor.”

The fire of love, a film that debuted to rave reviews at the Sundance Film Festival, comes from documentary filmmaker Sara Dosa. It tells the story of dedicated scientists and partners Katia and Maurice Krafft, who died in a volcanic eruption and did what brought them together: unraveling the mysteries of volcanoes by capturing explosive images across the globe. Neon is collaborating with National Geographic Documentary Films on the film.

Neon’s presentation concludes Tuesday’s State of the Industry presentation, which also included speeches by NATO President and CEO John Fithian and MPAA President and CEO Charles Rivkin along with a NATO Marquee Award presentation to Ellis Jacob, President and CEO of Cineplex. Hollywood studios and cinema operators are gathering this week in Las Vegas for CinemaCon, the annual convention hosted by the National Association of Theater Owners. This year is especially crucial for exhibitors as they try to get out of the ravages of the COVID-19 crisis and compete with streamers.

This year, all five major Hollywood studios plus Lionsgate and Neon are presenting upcoming billboards during their time on stage inside the Colosseum at Caesars Palace.

CinemaCon 2022 runs 25-28. April.
