Giving a rare treat of showing an extended preview for its fantasy epic "The Golden Compass" at this year's San Diego Comic-Con on Friday, July 27, New Line Cinema has delightfully placed the clip online for numerous fantasy fans out there to experience the same wonder and excitement as visitors of the convention have had.
Running about five minutes, the preview is posted on Yahoo! Movies and shows lots of footage of daemons transforming as well as scenes from the final battle with the witches.
Based on Philip Pullman's bestselling and award-winning novel of the same name, "Compass" is a directorial work of Chris Weitz scripted by he himself alongside Tom Stoppard with Deborah Forte producing. New Line has set a December 7, 2007 date to open the movie in theaters nationwide.
