The Golden Compass recap: how a literary triumph was turned to dust
The Golden Compass (His Dark Materials, #1) by Philip Pullman
Despite the fact that the lead roles were Nicole Kidman and Eva Green, the film shamefully failed at the box office. The production of the painting was spent more than million dollars, and the total collection amounted to about 70 million. In the first part, the story was not told to the end and the creators originally planned to shoot the sequel. However, given that the picture did not bring the expected fees, the studio simply went bankrupt. In , the press leaked information that the preparations for the shootings are still going on, that the script is already finished, and the actors are ready to start filming all except Dakota Blue Richards, she had already outgrown her heroine by that time. However, these versions have not been officially confirmed by anyone, and the shooting has not begun. Fans of the book still hope that the continuation of the film will take the studio Warner Brothers, and the world will finally see the completion of an unusual and exciting fantasy story.
Who killed off The Golden Compass?
Critically acclaimed, award-laden bestsellers with a young heroine in the form of Lyra Bellacqua, the trilogy seemed an obvious choice to follow Harry Potter and Lord Of The Rings and become a blockbuster movie series. New Line bought the rights after bringing Lord Of The Rings to the screen, hoping for a similar success. The two stories are very different High Fantasies though, and The Golden Compass contains concepts less familiar to audiences than wizards, monsters and swordplay. This is an important factor when it comes to the adaptation.

The film was released on 5 December , by New Line Cinema. Before its release the film received criticism from both secular organisations and fans of His Dark Materials for the dilution of the religious elements from the novels, and also theist organisations — in particular, it was the subject of a boycott campaign by the U. Catholic League due to perceived anti-Catholic themes.
