The Golden Compass Poster Bears All

Not wanting to be left out in the cold (haha), a teaser poster for The Golden Compass has appeared (click to enlarge). This film is sure to be one of this Winter's big ones. Hopefully, The Golden Compass will do more to satisfy our winter itch for fantasy than Eragon was able to muster last year.

For those that do not know, this book is set in a parallel Earth were people have little daemon animal companions representing their souls. There is also a mysterious substance called Dust that may hold the answers to the universe. The Golden Compass is the first book in a theological fantasy trilogy known as His Dark Materials that spans several worlds including our own.

So far I have read The Golden Compass AKA Northern Lights (which was good) and The Subtle Knife (which was exceptional) and have yet to read the conclusion, The Amber Spyglass. I am really looking forward to this movie, and with Daniel Craig and Nicole Kidman as well as armored polar bears, it looks like its gonna be good.
