The latest trailer for THE GOLDEN COMPASS, based off Phillip Pullman's His Dark Materials saga, has hit online courtesy of Yahoo Trailers & Clips. The film was adapted to the big screen by writer/director Chris Weitz and stars an ensemble cast featuring Nicole Kidman, Daniel Craig, Sam Elliott, Eva Green, Dakota Blue Richards, Ian McKellen, Ian McShane, Freddy Highmore, Kathy Bates, Tom Courtenay, Ben Walker, Adam Godley, Simon McBurney, Nonso Anozie, Jim Carter, Clare Higgins, Jack Shepherd and Magda Szubanski.

At the center of the story is Lyra (Dakota Blue Richards), a 12-year-old girl who starts out trying to rescue a friend who's been kidnapped by a mysterious organization known as the Gobblers - and winds up on an epic quest to save not only her world, but ours as well.

Awesome trailer! I wasn't terribly impressed with the 1st book and thus did not read the rest of the series, but I may have to give it a second chance on the basis of the trailer alone. This film looks spectacular. The cast is formidable and delicious with performances by Kidman and Eva Green, who disappointed me in Casino Royale not so much because of her acting, but because her wardrobe and makeup hid the true erotic beauty I fell in lust with in the movie "The Dreamers". Oh yeah, just so I can happily join the ranks of the rest of you dorks that have said this in the past, first!

We don't do that "first" thing here, we're a more sophisticated brand of interweb nerds. "who disappointed me in Casino Royale not so much because of her acting, but because her wardrobe and makeup hid the true erotic beauty I fell in lust with in the movie The Dreamers. " So you mean you were disappointed because she wasn't naked through half of Casino Royale? Because I was disappointed she wasn't naked through all of Dreamers

"Because I was disappointed she wasn't naked through all of Dreamers" You ARE an evil monkey, but I couldn't agree with you more.

In other unrelated news, there is a on line petition for Peter Jackson to do the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows movie...Here is the link if you are interested in signing it... http://www.culturemagazine.ca/content/view/57/54/

Not that I don't think he'd be frickin awesome at it, but I'd rather have him do the Hobbit. As for this, I'll go see it, but what will it be rated. Will I be able to take my kids, I wonder.

almostunbiased...I think that was one of the main objections to him doing it, was that it would be a conflict with the Hobbit but even at this time and point we don't even know if he is going to do the Hobbit but I agree with you, I would like him to do the Hobbit before Potter...If it turns out that he could make it work for both that would awesome...

dammit. they're showing too much. they've basically spoiled the entire plot of the film through the trailers.

Didn't I read that the filmmakers decided to save the last few chapters of the book for the second film? In that case, a lot of those scenes with the bears fighting will not actually be in the film but in part 2- if the first one is successful that is. I agree with chemilillgod, the trailer gives too much away. with these fantasy films, I think the 'less is more' approach works best for the trailers. Remember the awful trailer for The Seeker: The Dark is Rising? Urgh- visual overload! And I'm so tired of that trailer voiceover guy!

I never read any of the books, but the trailer makes it a must see, for me. I thought the first trailer was very good, but this one tops it. As for giving away too much, I have no idea. I didn't really get the feeling I saw too much, and I HATE it when a trailer does that (are you reading this Robert Zemeckis?).
