    They will not show the whole picture just yet. They cant afford to fully 'shock' anyone. they need to build a fanbase with this first one, then really get into it with the sequels. And the main controversy is with the books right now.

    You cannot see it from the film.

    It doesn't really happen in the first, but in the second and third it does.

    The books were FAR better than the film though. I hope they improve the film for the next in the trilogy.

    That organization probably symbolizes Christianity.

    I don't see the big deal though, if a movie promotes Christianity it doesn't get any negative reaction, so why should a movie promoting atheism be frowned upon.

    People are way too narrow minded nowadays, they only believe what they want to believe and try to stop others from expressing their points of view just because it opposes their own.

    The Anti-Christian/Anti-Catholic themes are highly diluted in the screenplay.

    The Box Office Report shows it had a 3500+ screen opening and only did ~$26M, so given the estimated $150M budget, I'd say sequels of the same magnitude are unlikely - i.e., a massive financial failure (maybe Direct to Video sequels?).

    Pullman's problem is his anti-Christian themes get so obvious and overwrought that by the 3rd book (The Amber Spyglass), it's all just gets exponentially crappier (from Norther Lights).

    I thought it was a *strange* place to end the movie too - it's before the ending of the book, leaving it in a strange limbo (er, there's a critcal life/death character moment at the end of the book that's omitted - covering their PG-13 asses?).

    This movie has the potential to be great: It's got Nicole Kidman and Daniel Craig! Don't let religious beliefs hold you back from seeing this movie. And yungblood said, there are no religious elements to this film.

    What's confusing you guys is that it's not the movie so much that's causing this controversy. It's the "People see movie + Love it + Go buy book + Read about it = Spread of atheism." that's getting these Christians. I'm Christian, but I want to see this movie, looks really good.


    What Pullman said about the Chronicles of Narnia seriously makes me totally dislike him and think he's an arrogant asshole though.

    People shouldn't be so offended, it's a work of fiction. You know, like the Bible.
    Atheist wrote this trying to lure kids into the book wich goes into more detail than the movie.

    People are offended to easily.

    It's like oh noez God isn't in this movie anyone who sees it is evil. One of my friends didn't get TP just because Hyrule was created by 'goddesses.'
