A film adaption of the first book in the His Dark Materials trilogy, Northern Lights (known as The Golden Compass in North America, hence the title). Released in November 2007. It was, like many movie adaptations, altered, with the more hot-button issues toned down or removed altogether. This initially raised the question of how they'd adapt the third book, but considering the poor box office, this is likely to be the *only* movie of the trilogy.
