Actor Gary Oldman stars in the brand new David Bowie video, which you can watch above.

'The Next Day' is the third single to be taken from Bowie's current album of the same name. The video was directed by Floria Sigismundi - the photographer and filmmaker who directed Bowie's last video, 'The Stars (Are Out Tonight)'. She also directed The Runaways and the video for Justin Timberlake's 'Mirrors'.

Alongside Oldman, Marion Cotillard - who won the Academy Award for her portrayal of Edith Piaf also stars in the promo, which takes place in a pub with a cast and crew of religious characters. Bowie plays a Christ-like figure, Oldman portrays a priest and Cotillard plays a saint-like character while a Cardinal hands out cash and a nun prays.

Bowie and Oldman previously joined forces in 1995, when they recorded a duet of Bowie's 'You've Been Around' for guitarist Reeves Gabrels' album 'The Sacred Squall Of Now'. They worked together again in 1996 on the Jean-Michel Basquiat biopic Basquiat with Bowie portraying Andy Warhol and Oldman in the role of fellow painter/

Oldman is the second actor friend Bowie has enlisted this year, following Tilda Swinton, who played his onscreen wife in the video for 'The Stars (Are Out Tonight)', the second single from 'The Next Day', which was released in February.
