'The Next Day' Video: David Bowie, Marion Cotillard & Gary Oldman Meet In Church Brothel

David Bowie recruited some all-star talent for his latest music video, which features Marion Cotillard as a prostitute suffering from a severe case of stigmata and Gary Oldman as a less-than-pious bishop. Bowie himself stars as well, offering parlor entertainment in this church-run sex-for-money scheme.

We're told Bowie himself conceived of the treatment for the video, which was directed by Floria Sigismondi ("The Runaways"). It's a lush visual, and it's nice to see that the 66-year-old Bowie hasn't lost his edge.

"The Next Day" is the third video off the album which shares the same title. "Where Are We Now?" -- Bowie's comeback single -- debuted with its own video, and "The Stars Are (Out Tonight)" got a treatment that featured Tilda Swinton.

Bowie recently broke his long and very serious silence about the album by sending writer Rick Moody 42 word about the project.

Take a look above and let us know what you think in the comments.
