Wishing on a Stardust

The Neil Gaiman movie adaptation’s out next week, so we’ve got some clips to brighten up your Thursday

When we caught up with Neil Gaiman, writer of the original graphic novel, at this year’s Comic-Con he told us: “Whatever genre of film The Princess Bride has sat alone in for the last 20 years, Stardust is in that genre too.” If the promise of a successor to one of the finest fantasy films of the ‘80s hasn’t quite piqued your interest, you might want to take a gander at these clips before Stardust goes on general release from Friday 19 October .

The film’s the story of a guy called Tristan (played by Charlie Cox) who tries to impress the love of his life (Sienna Miller) by finding a fallen star – a star that’s turned into Claire Danes on impact. As always happens on the big screen, however, Tristan’s not the only one on the hunt for the star; the seven sons of king Peter O’Toole and a witch (Michelle Pfeiffer) who reckons its power will make her young again are also looking for a little piece of Stardust.
