Slick new trailer for James Dean biopic 'Life'

60 years after his death, the world is yet to move on from the demise of James Dean.

From his impossible style to his electric on-screen performances, it would seem there's not a year that goes by in which we don't ponder what "might have been" had the 24-year-old not taken a drive on 30 September 1955.

It's this crash, and the meteoric rise to fame that proceeded it, that forms the focus of Life - a new biopic about the icon, starring Dane DeHaan (Lawless, Kill Your Darlings) as Dean and Robert Pattinson (those vampire films) as Dennis Stock - a photographer with Life Magazine who was assigned to shoot pictures of the fledgling star.

Edgy, cool, effortless - the reviewers are going to new some new superlatives if the film is anywhere near as good as this trailer.

Life is out on 25 September
