Based very loosely on the Alan Moore graphic novel epic of the same name. TLOEG is set in Victorian England - the film centers around a team of extraordinary figures culled from great adventure literature (including Alan Quatermaine, vampiress Mina Harker from Dracula, the Invisible Man, Dr. Jekyll / Mr. Hyde. Rather than remain true to the comic roots, the film also incorporates Tom Sawyer and Dorian Gray, in an apparent effort to keep the cast from being entirely without Americans, and it is set in New York. an American secret service agent named Sawyer, Captain Nemo and Dorian Gray,) who are called upon by Queen Victoria to stop a villain intent on turning the nations of the world against one another.

This will undoubtedly have a hard core fan base who will rush to see it. However just how much of a draw is Connery to the opening weekend crowd. Shanghai Knights is also set in Victorian England - so may be a precursor to the American's audience appetite for our dear departed Queen Victoria. Wild Wild West had a similar feel but it totally bombed - and that was set in the US with a hot Will Smith.
