I'm really looking forward to the film. The cast is very exciting. Daniel Craig as Lord Asriel! Sam Elliott as Lee Scoresby! (The Big Lebowski: 'You got that whole cowboy thing going on'). Tom Courney as Fader Coram - brilliant casting. And, yes, even Nicole Kidman as Mrs Coulter. She's pale and (pretend) evil enough.
Do you think the fundies will finally cotton on, once it's a film (not a hard book with words) that the series is million times more anti-religion and pro-'defiance' than Harry Potter. Or do you think the Knife is actually so Subtle that it will slip in without smarting? (Do you see what I did there? Clever eh)
