The Golden Compass, The Golden Compass made its first appearance on television, and this point has made some people wonder if there will be a sequel to the 2007 film fantasy and adventure.
Based on Northern Lights (published in The Golden Compass in the U.S.), the first novel of Philip Pullman’s trilogy “His Dark Materials, The Golden Compass was published on December 7, 2007 by New Line Cinema. Directed by Chris Weitz, Dakota Blue Richards stars there, Nicole Kidman, Daniel Craig, Eva Green, Sam Elliot, Ian McKellen, Ben Walker, and Freddie Highmore. The project was announced in February 2002 after the success of recent adaptations of the epic other fantastic, but the turmoil on the script and the choice of a director caused significant delays. A $ 180 million, it was one of the most expensive ever for New Line, and his mediocre success to the States United have contributed to New Line in February 2008 Restructuring.

The story centers on the adventures of Lyra Belacqua, an orphan living in a parallel universe on a world much like ours. In the world of Lyra, a power called the decision dogmatic Magisterium conspires to end tolerance and free inquiry. Poor, orphans and children Gyptian disappear in the hands of a group called the Gobblers children. Lyra discovers that Mrs. Coulter is running for the Gobblers. Collected by the Gyptians, Lyra joins them on a trip to the far north in search of missing children.

Before its release, the film has been criticized by secular organizations and fans of His Dark Materials dilution of religious elements in the novels, as well as some religious organizations for anti-Catholic themes and atheists of the source material. The studio has ordered significant changes to the end of the post-production, which Weitz later called a “terrible” experience, although the film’s visual effects (which Weitz has called the film “the most successful”) has won two Oscars and a BAFTA. The critical reception was mixed.

The film finally made a profit when the international projections were presented and now there is a possibility that there will be a sequel. Unfortunately, there are no concrete answers or timing of release, if there will ever be.
