Ben is a lifelong Nintendo fan who likes to build websites, and make video games. He buys way too much Lego.
In the trailers before Stardust we saw the trailer for the Golden Compass (known to Brits as Northern Lights), the (first?) movie of the first book from the ‘His Dark Materials’ trilogy by Philip Pullman.
I was already quite interested in the film, and finding out that Weta (think Lord of the Rings trilogy) are doing the special effects makes me even more so.
The comments on the Youtube post are showing some concern about the content of the book – all related to religion. However according to imdb and Wikipedia the film has been tweaked to remove references to religion. Personally I don’t care, the trailer looks great and I hope it does justice to the books.
