Not loosening the marketing campaign on its latest big-budgeted feature "The Golden Compass", New Line Cinema has surprisingly brought up online the first five-minute preview from the fantasy adventure, opening this Friday, December 7, 2007.
Written and directed by Chris Weitz, pic is based on the first book in Philip Pullman's "His Dark Materials" trilogy, which follows the coming of age of its two main characters, Lyra Belacqua and Will Parry. Weitz at one time resigned from handling the film, but finally returned in 2006 after his replacement Anand Tucker quit the project over creative disagreements with New Line.
