Synopsis

It's 1899 and the world is a dark and ominous place. Tensions between Germany and England are growing and a mysterious megalomaniac called "The Fantom" is provoking war, believing he can cash in on the conflict by selling weapons of mass destruction.

Desperate to maintain peace, an agent of the British government is sent to Africa to fetch the world's greatest adventurer Quatermain (Connery) to lead a team of extraordinary figures with legendary powers.

Quatermain's extraordinary League is comprised of Captain Nemo (Naseeruddin Shah), Dracula vampiress Mina Harker (Peta Wilson), an invisible man Rodney Skinner (Tony Curran), American secret service agent Sawyer (Shane West), Dorian Gray (Stuart Townsend), and Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde (Jason Flemyng). Richard Roxburgh ("Moulin Rouge") plays the League's enigmatic recruiter, M.

The League members are staunch individualists, outcasts in fact, with checkered pasts and singular gifts that have been both blessing and curse. Now they must learn to trust each other and work as a team for the very hope of civilization. With little preparation and no time to lose, they will be transported via Captain Nemo's extraordinary submarine, the Nautilus, to the frontline of defense: Venice, Italy. There, a masked madman known as the Fantom plans to sabotage a conference of world leaders by setting off a domino chain of explosions, sinking the entire city. The threat is catastrophic, the risks are staggering. The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen has 96 hours to save the world...

Based on the acclaimed comic books by Alan Moore (From Hell) and Kevin O' Neill, the film is directed by Stephen Norrington (BLADE) from a screenplay by James Dale Robinson. Don Murphy (FROM HELL, NATURAL BORN KILLERS) and Trevor Albert (GROUNDHOG DAY, BEDAZZLED) are the producers, and Sean Connery and Mark Gordon (SAVING PRIVATE RYAN) are executive producers. The co-producer is Michael Nelson.

Principal photography on the 20-week shoot occurred almost entirely in Prague, with additional shooting in Malta and Los Angeles.

The two disc special edition DVD features remarkable behind-the-scenes footage from the making of this amazing story. Find out the origins of the outstanding literary characters, take a peek at deleted scenes, make-up and props featurettes, and a 23 minute documentary 'Behind the Fantasy'.
