The first trailer for The Golden Compass is out. It’s on YouTube, but I’d really recommend watching the high quality version here, as it’s full of detail. I think it looks promising: Daniel Craig as Lord Asriel = great, Nicole Kidman as Mrs Coulter = great, Eva Green as Serafina Pekkala may well induce thoughts entirely inappropriate for a kid’s film, and the actress chosen for Lyra seems to look the part.
The trailer is odd, though, and I think it’s because every shot of Lyra shows her alone. Where’s Pantalaimon? There’s one shot of him at the end, but I couldn’t spot him in the background beforehand. Maybe he’s CGI and simply hasn’t been completed yet? It’s strangely wrong that he’s missing, Lyra isn’t Lyra without him.
