Wondering what Daft Punk, the French electronic group, has been up to? They’ve collaborated with longtime anime figure Leji Matsumoto on feature-length release, Interstella 5555, due out on DVD on November 18. The film is subtitled “The 5tory of the 5ecret 5tar 5ystem.” It premiered this year at the Cannes Film Festival, and has been exhibited at ResFest, the touring film festival, which has an emphasis on desktop production and electronic music. Three rocket-fueled, funkified clips (partial synopsis: kids in band fight off mysterious costumed evil-doers) from the film are viewable on its promotional site (here).
