ComingSoon.net has obtained an exclusive clip to Paramount’s Stardust.

Directed by Matthew Vaughn and based on the best-selling graphic novel by Neil Gaiman and Charles Vess, the fantasy-adventure stars Claire Danes, Charlie Cox, Sienna Miller, Ricky Gervais, Jason Flemyng, Peter O’Toole, Michelle Pfeiffer and Robert De Niro. Ian McKellen narrates the film.

I’ll admit I know absolutely nothing about the Gaiman book, but a lot of people have been hyping the heck out of it. After watching the clip, I was intrigued enough to at least look up the full synopsis from IMDb.

Take the jump for the links, more info, and the new trailer!

A young man named Tristran (Charlie Cox) tries to win the heart of Victoria (Sienna Miller), the beautiful but cold object of his desire, by going on a quest to retrieve a fallen star. His journey takes him to a mysterious and forbidden land beyond the walls of his village. On his odyssey, Tristran finds the star, which has transformed into a striking girl named Yvaine (Claire Danes). However, Tristran is not the only one seeking the star. Lord Stormhold’s (Peter O’Toole) three living sons not to mention the ghosts of their four dead brothers all need the star as they vie for the throne. Tristran must also overcome the evil witch, Lamia (Michelle Pfeiffer), who needs the star to make her young again. As Tristran battles to survive these threats, encountering a pirate named Captain Shakespeare (Robert De Niro) and a shady trader named Ferdy the Fence (Ricky Gervais) along the way, his quest changes. He must now win the heart of the star for himself as he discovers the meaning of true love.

Then I decided to check out the latest trailer currently posted on YouTube.

    Read the book (I haven’t read the graphic novel yet). It’s a lot of fun.
