I just came across some production stills from the movie Stardust, based on the Neil Gaiman book of the same name and starring Claire Danes, Sienna Miller and Michelle Pfeiffer. The movie premieres Aug. 10, and it looks stunning. (My dorky captions aren’t so stunning, but I tried!)
When I blogged about this movie a while ago, I noted that Pfeiffer is looking Stevie-Nicks-a-rific, so allow me to belabor that point:
I’m just going to call that character Rhiannon, even though her name is Lamia. Anyway, look at Rhiannon’s crazy little goats!
I really enjoyed the book — I’m a Gaiman fan generally and have a little bit of a crush on him — so I have high hopes for the film. Speaking of men I like, Rupert Everett, Ian McKellen and Robert De Niro are also in this movie. Hmm. It’s suddenly sounding really gay. Except for the De Niro part, I mean. Not that he’d necessarily mind the implication; he seems cool like that.
Even if Stardust does well, don’t hope for a sequel. Gaiman doesn’t like those:
Visit the Stardust official site for more, including a game called “Crossing the Wall” that’s sort of fun and sort of crazy-making.
