"There are worlds beyond our own
The compass will show the way.
"
—Official tagline

The Golden Compass is the film adaptation of Northern Lights, the first book of the His Dark Materials trilogy by Philip Pullman. The film was released on December 5, 2007 by New Line Cinema. The project was announced in February 2002, following the success of other recent adaptations of fantasy epics. With a budget of $180 million, it is one of New Line's biggest-budget projects ever after a series of box office disappointments preceding the release.

Before its release the film received criticism from both secular organizations and fans of His Dark Materials for the dilution of the religious elements from the novels, and also theist organizations - in particular, it was the subject of a boycott campaign by the U.S. Catholic League due to perceived anti-Catholic themes.
