Directing Stardust is British filmmaker Gabriel Range, who previously directed the likes of I Am Slave (2010) and Death of a President (2006). Range has also penned the script alongside Christopher Bell.

People took to social media to express their thoughts on upcoming movie’s trailer. One person wrote, ‘Is it just me or does this actually look interesting? It was weird, beyond the resemblance of the performance, this trailer actually sold me on the story – a nice change of pace!’

Another person commented, ‘Outstanding – so excited for this film’.


Other Twitter users were sceptical, however. One person put, ‘they really gotta stop with these biopics man…’, while someone else said that [from the looks of the trailer] Johnny Flynn is ‘trying too much to be like Rami Malek in Bohemian Rhapsody‘.

Stardust hits cinemas November 25.
