It was no ordinary life for a young girl: living among scholars in the hallowed halls of Jordan College and tearing unsupervised through Oxford's motley streets on mad quests for adventure. But Lyra's greatest adventure would begin closer to home, the day she heard hushed talk of an extraordinary particle. Microscopic in size, the magical dust--discovered in the vast Arctic expanse of the North--was rumored to possess profound properties that could unite whole universes. But there were those who feared the particle and would stop at nothing to destroy it. Catapulted into the heart of a terrible struggle, Lyra was forced to seek aid from clans, 'gyptians, and formidable armored bears. And as she journeyed into unbelievable danger, she had not the faintest clue that she alone was destined to win, or to lose, this more-than-mortal battle...Written by
The first movie to gross over $300 million worldwide while failing to reach $100 million in the U.S. Although a U.S. box-office disappointment (only grossing $70 million), the movie captured $302 million at the foreign box office, giving it a worldwide total of $372 million. This became a more common phenomenon following the expansion of the Chinese box-office market that began in 2010, even though this movie only grossed $4 million in that market. Unfortunately, New Line Cinema did not benefit from the foreign box office success: they had already sold the overseas rights before the movie was made, in order to secure the film's $200 million budget. The domestic failure of the movie caused the end of New Line as an independent company, when the bankrupt studio was subsequently absorbed by Warner Bros. in 2008. See more »

There are many universes and many Earths parallel to each other. Worlds like yours, where people's souls live inside their bodies, and worlds like mine, where they walk beside us, as animal spirits we call daemons.
Are we going to see the child?
I should think so.
So many worlds. But connecting them all is Dust. Dust was here before the witches of the air, the Gyptians of the water, and the bears of the ice. In my world, scholars invented an alethiometer - a golden compass - and it...

I disagree this movie was a great success.... I can't wait till the next movie. Although I don't get why they call it demons. When they are their souls. I am a Christian and I love it.!!! You people should watch the movie. And all you haters should just chill. The fighting scene is pretty cool too. Peace. I also liked the site of the movie. In which you could find out what demon you have. The stars in the movies are also my favorite actors. At least most of them. Does anyone Know when the next movie comes out? If you do watch this movie.I would like to tell you that a big surprise will come. Sorry I can't tell you but it will be cool.
