The first movie trailer for The Golden Compass will be released on
Friday Thursday Night with Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End. From what we hear, it’s more of a teaser trailer than anything else. We posted a sizzle reel from the film a few months back which basically consisted of some unfinished effects shots. So if you haven’t already, check that out.
The story follows the coming of age of Lyra Belacqua and Will Parry, as they “wander through a multiverse and a backdrop of epic events.” The books were marketed to children, but it has garnered a large adult readership. The story features fantasy elements such as gypsies, witches, and armoured bears.
Written and directed by Chris Weitz, His Dark Materials: The Golden Compass stars Nicole Kidman, Daniel Craig, Sam Elliott, Ian McShane and Dakota Blue Richards. The movie and book are the first in a trilogy. The film opens on December 7th 2007.
