Bei AICN-D gibt es eine Kritik von Latauro...
[...] I want to be kind on the film, 'cos kids are going to love it, and so they bloody should. A lot of the stuff that irritated me isn't going to matter to a child, and it wouldn't surprise me at all if ten years from now we had a generation who grew up with the fondest memories of this film. [...]
Hollywoodreporter.com berichtet über die internationalen Einspielergebnisse...
[...] "Stardust" made its international debut in Russia simultaneously with its domestic opening. The weekend tally for Matthew Vaughn's adventure fantasy was an estimated $3 million from 435 locations for a nearly $7,000 per-screen average. [...]

[...] you should know that I really loved the book. There are a lot of changes from the book and that normally drives me mad with a lot of movie adaptations. But in this case, the deviations they made from the book made it more interesting, at least cinematically. They kept to the true spirit of the book [...]

[...] Stardust is the best of everything that '80s fantasy movies were. This film felt so much like Spielberg directing a Terry Gilliam script it was great. This is the kind of movie I want my kids growing up with. [...]

[...] really sappy at points, really fun at others- with some feel good anti-conformist themes. Not bad, even if you know how it's gonna end - with all the loose ends tied in a neat little bow... with sparkly stardust on top. [...]

Bei AICN gibt es eine positive Kritik von Moriarty...
[...] STARDUST feels subversive every time it treats you like a grown-up. I can see kids of about 10 and up really falling for this movie and loving it, but I can also see adults rewatching this compulsively. It’s a movie with a lot of little subtle pleasures that will pay off upon seeing them again. [...]

[...] The film? Utter Perfection! Absolutely loved it.
Now here’s something you need to realize going into this movie... this isn’t an ACTION fantasy, it is a ROMANTIC FANTASY... and one that works, I’m genuinely pleased to say. [...]

Bei AICN gibt es eine enttäuschende Kritik zu einer Testvorführung einer frühen Filmfassung...
[...] The film itself was missing about 50% of the visual effects, and instead they were replaced with pre-vis shots. Also as the film has not been scored yet, the main theme was throughout the film was replaced with the theme from Meet Joe Black (and the only reason I picked up on that, is because I like the MJB theme). This film is terrible, it was way too long, very cliched and very predictable. It was agonising watching it, honest! Vaughn had a chance to work with a very big budget and a stellar cast but still manged to mess it up! He had De Niro, Michelle Pheiiffer, Claire Danes for god sake!
The film treads a very fine line between serious drama/fantasy and light-hearted comedy - and thats typical british comedy! Even the best bit of comedy just managed to get a few chuckles out of the audience and nothing more. The acting by all cast members is very wooden. Amongs the worst culprits is the young Brit lad who plays Tristan, Claire Danes was sooo unbearable! Phieffer should've past. On the upside it was nice to see De Niro to try something new, and it was pleasing to watch his performance. Gosh the film was such a bore, it was almost putting me to sleep! scene after scene just felt like 'been here, done that' to me. The film offers nothing new, and I really feel it will struggle in every department! The Visual Effects that were in the film, completed were 'Meh!' and 'So What!', nothing special and nothing that will wow you. The production values in general were really low.
I really do not know where all the money went! The film is long, boring, mundane, predictable and alltogether poorley put together. [...]
Bei AICN gibt es ein paar sehenswerte Szenenbilder und den Hinweis, dass Ian McKellen im US-Original die Erzählerstimme übernimmt...
Bei AICN gibt es eine weitere Kritik... Trotz einschneidender Änderungen zum Buch scheint die Umsetzung gelungen zu sein...
[...] "Stardust" is a fun movie. It’s romantic in a way that is not irritating, it has a huge sense of adventure, it’s not boring, the acting is great. When the special effects are in, it’s going to be even cooler. You can safely put this on your list of things to see once they’re done with it. But if you’re a fan of the book, don’t go in expecting to see the book.
Bei AICN gibt es Kritiken zu einer Testvorführung...
[...] Saw a rough cut of STARDUST last night in Pasadena. In one word: charming. Call it a sword & sorcery take on Star Wars, wherein the boy with the magical pedigree grows into the man who embraces his destiny. [...]
The sfx were incomplete to the point where many shots were simply not visible, and the audience had to imagine what an aerial view of the kingdom might look like from a flying galleon ship straight out of Baron Munchausen. When the sfx are complete and the trans fat is trimmed away, this film could resemble a wittier 'Chronicles of Narnia' with Gaiman's signature wry edge. [...]

EDP24 berichtet über die Dreharbeiten in Elm Hill...
Paramount Pictures has set Robert De Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer, Claire Danes, Charlie Cox and Sienna Miller to star in Stardust, an adaptation of the Neil Gaiman graphic novel to be directed by Matthew Vaughn (Layer Cake). Variety says the film begins shooting in the U.K. and Iceland next month.
Vaughn, who committed to the fantasy project last fall, wrote the script with writing partner Jane Goldman. Lorenzo di Bonaventura is producing; Paramount co-finances and co-produces with Vaughn's Marv Films and Ingenious Film Partners.
Michael Dreyer and the author are also producing, and Steve Mark and Peter Morton are executive producers.
The story concerns a star-crossed youth from the English village of Wall who tries to win the heart of his true love by searching for a falling star and heading into a magical world where he must deal with a witch and a pirate.
Moriarty von AICN sprach mit Matthew Vaughn über die geplante "Stardust"-Verfilmung...
[...] we talked about STARDUST. Vaughn had a portfolio full of the film’s production art with him, most of it stuff he had paid for himself before Paramount even got involved. What struck me right away is how the visual palette he’s going for is N O T H I N G like I expected. It’s bold, and if he pulls it off, it’s going to be unique. It’s certainly not a case of someone aping LORD OF THE RINGS or NARNIA, which we’re going to see a lot of in the next few years. He’s using a lot of practical locations in the UK that I’ve never seen on film before, and he’s building as much of the movie practical as he can, including the flying ship that Captain Shakespeare and his crew command, which should be spectacular. Same thing with the Witches’ Castle, or the Castle of Stormhold. These are big sets, and it looks like he’s really pushing for a fairy tale look that’s all his own. STARDUST has its adult moments, so it’s fine that he’s pushing this, making something that isn’t obviously family-oriented. Instead, this is a sort of ageless fable, and only very little kids are going to be unable to watch it. This plays rough in places, but only in the way that the real fairy tales do. We talked about the film for about an hour, and then the two of them had to run off to start the screen tests for Yvaine for the day. They couldn't tell me any of the names of anyone testing, no matter how much I needled them, so I have no idea if that was when they found Claire, or if it was later.
There are a lot more roles to be cast, and I think both Alfred Molina and Mark Strong (the dude who beat the shit out of Clooney in SYRIANA) are joining the cast as well, although I’m not sure exactly what they’ll be doing. Right now, my guess is that Vaughn’s back in England, working his ass off to get everything ready, working to finalize the cast, working with his design teams and his visual collaborators and his costumers and every other department head and he’s probably loving every second of the chaos, thriving on it, slip sliding his way along and revving up for what I’m hoping really delivers the goods, and I’ll bet he never breaks a sweat, no matter what.
