Watch some featurettes, behind the scenes videos and an on set video interview with Neil Gaiman – STARDUST

     August 7, 2007

Opening this Friday is the new movie by Matthew Vaughn and it’s a fantasy called “Stardust.” If you’re heard the name but you’re not sure from where, the movie is based on the book by Neil Gaiman and it’s been promoted at Comic-Con for the last two years.

I got to see the movie a few weeks ago and absolutely fell in love with it. While everyone always says Hollywood makes the same movie over and over again, I can assure you this film is unlike anything you’ve ever seen and it’s completely worth your time and money.

So to help promote the film, Paramount has provide me some featurettes, behind the scenes footage while they were shooting, and an on set video interview with Neil Gaiman.

And in a few minutes I’ll be posting 10 movie clips from the movie, but until then enjoy what’s below.

Here’s the official synopsis:

From the imaginations of best-selling author Neil Gaiman and directorMatthew Vaughn comes “Stardust,” the enchanting tale of a fallen star who crashes into a magical kingdom – and turns out to be no ordinary meteorite at all, but a beautiful, imperiled woman chased after by an incredible array of seekers who want or need her secret powers. From wicked witches to power-mad princes, from flying pirates to dueling goblins, each person who encounters the star has his or her own agenda, but they all desire just one thing:her heart.

“Stardust” begins in the sleepy English village of Wall, so named for the cobblestone wall that has, for eons, kept the villagers safely apart form the supernatural parallel universe that lies just on the other side. It is here that young Tristan Thorne (CHARLIE COX) makes a wild-eyed promise to the prettiest girl in the village (SIENNA MILLER), whose heart he hopes to win: that he will bring her back a fallen star. Now, in order to make good on his promise, Tristan will have to cross the forbidden wall, and enter a mysterious kingdom lit by unending magic and unfolding legends of which he will quickly become a part.

In this fantastical realm known as Stormhold, Tristan discovers that the fallen star is not at all what he expected but a spirited young woman (CLAIRE DANES) injured by her cosmic tumble. Now, she is in terrible danger – sought after by colossal powers including the King’s (PETER O’TOOLE) scheming sons for whom only she can secure the throne and a chillingly powerful witch (MICHELLE PFEIFFER) desperate to use the star to achieve eternal youth and beauty.

As Tristan sets out to protect the star and bring her back to his beloved on the other side of the wall, his journey will bring incredible encounters with a pirate captain (ROBERT DE NIRO) and a shady trader (RICKY GERVAIS), among other surprises. But if he can survive by his wits and the strength of his newfound love, Tristan will also uncover the secret key to his own identity and a fate beyond his wildest dreams.
