Stardust (2007)

Stardust

The siblings: Primarily Primus (Jason Flemyng) and Septimus (Mark Strong).

What puts them at odds? On his deathbed, the King of Stormhold (Peter O’Toole) throws a ruby into the sky, decreeing that the first of his seven sons to find it will win the throne. Soon, only two are left in the running.

Squabbling princes Primus and Septimus are just the tip of the fratricidal iceberg in this one, with five dead – but not gone – brothers in between, played as sarcastic spirits by Rupert Everett, Mark Heap, Julian Rhind-Tutt, Adam Buxton and David Walliams. Matthew Vaughn and Jane Goldman distil Neil Gaiman’s fantasy tale for the big screen, and while it doesn’t carry across all the magic, the sibling squabbling – and fratricidal enthusiasm – is a joy to behold. Gaiman himself approved: “It's a parallel Earth version of Stardust, which has Robert De Niro and stuff.” In the end, it’s down to lost sister Una (Kate Magowan) and her son Tristan (Charlie Cox) to take the crown.

Which sibling is your favourite?
