Philip Pullman wrote this story as part of the Dark Materials trilogy. I'm looking forward to seeing this!The controversy is, many people think it is promoting atheistic values. The church is using children for labor.
Mrs Coulter is acted by Nicole Kidman1 Yay, she's my fav actress, other than hugh jackman who's also from Australia. She hasn't acted a villain since Poison Ivy. Reprisal!
Daniel Craig will be Lord Asriel, the hero. It seems exciting, altho i am christian, i won't take it like that.
I think it is all right if you view it as an art piece, don't get caught up with the controversy.
