First Look: The Golden Compass


Based on the bestselling trilogy of His Dark Materials novels by Phillip Pullman, The Golden Compass is the fantastical story of Lyra (Dakota Blue Richards), a 12-year-old girl who, while rescuing her kidnapped friend, is drawn into a quest to save her world. A more detailed description of the movie on IMDB continues:

As Lyra is flung into the middle of [a] horrible struggle, she meets wondrous creatures both big and small, and villains who are not what they seem. Gobblers, that kidnap children, will turn out in the most unexpected places. And a magical compass of gold that will answer any question if one is skilled enough to read it.

Though not releasing until December, the trailer for The Golden Compass came out this week and not only is it enchanting, it also stars some illustrious actors, like Nicole Kidman, Daniel Craig and Eva Green (so, a little Casino Royale reunion there). I'm already mesmerized by the beautiful trailer, so it will be a long seven months until the movie is released. Or, maybe I can use this time to actually read the books.

To watch the trailer,

Yeah they're not bad at all. it's 11 year old children. Nothing sexual. All about growing up and some of the differences in their outlook on life. And it's about religion. And the belief of god.
