So why did they change the title for the U.S., I've only heard the series called the dark materials, and the book called the Golden Compass, never the Northern Lights.


Big difference between an adult film about possession and an all-ages film about killing God: But nevermind.

The books working title was "The Golden Compass Says..." When the american publishers decided to go ahead they didnt like the fact that Pullman had decided to call the first volume "The Norther Lights" (figuring no dout that most americans wouldnt know what the northern lights were) and simply named it what they liked - also printing it without Pullmans own illustrations.

He has a wild imagination - but he's just not funny and his writing style is clumsy and amateurish - so... no.

Are you serious they changed the name because they didn't think Americans would know what the Northern Lights are? I really doubt that. People are very dumb yes, but I think the majority of people know what they are.

I would probably have to say the Sword of Shannara. It is similar to Lord of the Rings, but I would like to see it on the big screen.

That's good their making a movie of Fahrenheit 451. The dog chase scene is made for the movies. I hope they don't screw it up.

There are so many Sci-Fi books they can make into movies. A good version of Dune has not come out. Neuromancer would probably make a good movie.

I'd like to make Peter Jackson make a movie of the book Mahabharata, cause it's my favourite and he's the one who could do it.
