Video: Behind The Scenes Of The Golden Compass has posted a new behind the scenes package for The Golden Compass (Movie Trailer, Poster). The five minute video is not a traditional EPK featurette, but instead a compilation of behind the scenes footage and film clips. They show a bunch of comparisons between green screen and final effects footage. I'm really starting to get pumped for this movie. Check out the footage after the jump.


Based on Philip Pullman's bestselling and award-winning novel, His Dark Materials: The Golden Compass is New Line's next huge $150 million fantasy epic adaptation. 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 Golden Compass hits theaters on December 7th 2007.
