Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Early in production, the movie was aimed for a November 16, 2007 release.
  • Director Chris Weitz has himself adapted Philip Pullman's work, citing the film and its sequels to be influenced by Barry Lyndon and Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope. He also mentioned that the film would make no direct mention of religion or God, two of the key themes of the books - a decision attacked by fans of the trilogy. According to Weitz, New Line Cinema feared that "perceived anti-religiosity" would make the film financially unviable in the USA. However, Weitz reassured fans by saying that religion would appear in euphemistic terms.
  • The series title His Dark Materials comes from a line in Paradise Lost by John Milton (II). This is a favourite literary work of Philip Pullman who has edited editions of it.
  • Paul Bettany was in negotiations to play Lord Asriel.
