From the producer of the Lord of the Rings trilogy comes The Golden Compass. It is based on Philip Pullman's bestselling and award-winning His Dark Materials trilogy. It is an exciting fantasy adventure, set in an alternative world where people's souls manifest themselves as animals, talking bears fight wars, and Gyptians and witches co-exist. At the center of the story is Lyra, 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.

Director/Screewriter: Chris Weitz
Studio: New Line Cinema
Cast: Nicole Kidman, Dakota Blue Richards, Eva Green, Daniel Craig, Nonso Anozie.

Something to look forward to during the year-end holiday season! It looks promising.. hopefully, it IS good.

BUT.. seems like we have an excessive number of books-turned-movies in the fantasy genre since LOTR. Just because one story is successful, everyone wants to jump onto the bandwagon??
And we have seen many that FLOPPED.

It's a bit cliche but Nicole Kidman is great in her role, IMO.
Apparently more of this genre coming this year! (Narnia 2.. Spiderwick...)
