In perusing the Interweb, I came across this article about one of tOA's favourite books Golden Compass, and the presser that was held in Cannes for the upcoming movie.

'Golden Compass' touted as new LOTR

It gives you an idea as to what they are going for, and what the challenges are.

(Okay, I really posted it to see if John's head will explode with the comparison to LOTR. :) )

I saw another article... must have been in the LA Times. I'll see if I can dig it up.

The pre-Trailer Trailer can be found here:

The Golden Compass

The casting is interesting.

Nicole Kidman could be utterly exceptional as Mrs. Coulter. Very much the look that would initially entice Lyra... and clearly the ability to play scary as all fuck. Very inspired casting.

I'll have to see Daniel Craig as Asriel. Not quite how I saw Asriel.

Sam Elliott as Lee Scoresby could be exceptional.

The girl looks like she could be fine.
