I can't wait for this movie. I loved the book and really hope they do it justice. Perhaps they'll continue with the current Hollywood trend and do the entire series?

I just wish they had cast anyone but Daniel Craig and Nicole Kidman - otherwise, I cannot wait to see it.  One of my friends also worked on the set for a few months and is listed in the credits, so I'm in trouble if I don't see it!   Wink

I've been waiting for this movie for five years – ever since I read the books. I'm not entirely sure, but I think it may have been The Golden Compass which got me hooked on Steampunk in the first place. Then again, it may have been 20,000 Leagues, since I forget which one I read first.

Anyhow, my boiler is stoked for this one.

apparently Hollywood have removed all references to god from the book before they would make it into a film. i don't see how it's going to translate personnaly... another "league" methinks, but possibly i could be proven wrong. Sam Elliot's always fun...

"i could be proven wrong."

an easy critical and intelligent answer, very good Sir.  Wink

I am strained on the film The Golden Compass, that elements out Pan´s Labyrint will surely take up.

This film is a pain in the ass. Fur and blur, the animators are too good, that's why I'm sitting here at 3 in the morning. True it's going to look fantastic but It's going to half kill render support.  Sad

Mr. Angus are you working on the film???  Shocked

I can't wait for this movie. I loved the first book (currently waiting for someone to return the second to the library, ergggh). I took photographs of all the costumes they had on display at the Comic Con (after some fangirl squealing), and although they aren't super clear I will gladly post them if anyone wishes to see them.

Some of it. bears mainly some casm shots but that's not a big secret as they're in the trailer. I'm more IT janitorial that actual frame making. Still, it's a living.

no theyre leaving it all in, but any reference to the catholic church is strictly called the magesterium. im so excited about this film. atheist steam punk fantasy. phillip pullman will be remembered as the guy who dared to teach kids the things that actually matter - love, evolution, the evils of organised religion.
cant wait to see iorek in full force, best trilogy series ever written.

I read on that very useful website "SomewhereOnTheInternetButIveForgottenWhere.com" (possibly MeFi) that some high-up official at the Vatican said that, although the Church regards the Harry Potter books as a non-issue, "if we still maintained the Index, these books [the HDM trilogy] would be on it". Part of the reason I bought them. I'm about halfway through the first volume, enjoying it immensely.

The Golden Compass

It took me a few seconds to realise this was Northern Lights in it's Colonial disguise. This is awesome news! I thoroughly enjoyed all Pullman's trilogy... I just hope they do it justice, too.

EDIT: I just watched the trailers. It's looking pretty good so far...!

In any case. If the complexity of the books is to remain in approximately, I put all, which want to see the film, much to the heart to read before the book!

Yes that caught me off gaurd too, I am guessing that by the golden compass they mean the alithieometer?

Yes, "The Golden Compass" was the US title of "Northern Lights". I'm not sure why - either the American Colonies don't have the phrase "Northern Lights", or they think it means a type of cannabis.

Thanks for that bit of unwarranted misinformation. (We do in fact have the phrase Northern Lights - referring to the Aurora Borealis, and there are much more interesting names for cannabis that don't have anything to do with the magnetosphere.)

Wikipedia provides a more useful explanation. 

The superficial resemblance of protagonist Lyra Belacqua's alethiometer (depicted on the book's cover) to a large compass caused the North American publishers of Northern Lights to retitle the book The Golden Compass. In fact, The Golden Compasses was an early proposal for the name of the trilogy (instead of His Dark Materials), taken from Milton's Paradise Lost, where it refers to the drawing instrument, rather than the navigation instrument.

alright angry man, he was only joking!  the golden compass was the original name for northern lights in the UK, but was changed after some publishing problems. pullman chose to change it.

I hoped he was. We've got a bad enough rap internationally as it is (with our current administration, etc), I got a little defensive. Apologies.
