I'm planning on writing my own happy Stardust review for here -- or at least, my delighted reaction to seeing the almost finished version -- but right now I thought I'd put up a link to the extremely puzzling Stardust TV spots. You can watch them at -- click on video. I mean, I appreciate that Charlie Cox isn't famous, but he is the hero and the person who the film is about and the person who's on screen all the time. You'd think he'd be in there somewhere... one of the TV spots somehow managed to give the vague impression that this film is a romance between Claire Danes and Robert DeNiro, which is just wrong on so many levels.

Heigh ho. (Shakes head and is glad he doesn't do film marketing for a living.)

I just spent a few hours doing website interviews for Stardust. Am now taking daughters and going shopping for food, since the tornado sirens have stopped going off and the next line of thunderstorms isn't due in for a few more hours.
