A Golden Controversy


Golden Compass Stirs Up Searches

The Web has made it a lot easier to convey outrage. Witness the controversy (and buzz) surrounding "The Golden Compass" a new children's film starring Nicole Kidman and Daniel Craig. The anger stems from the belief that the film is anti-religion and pro-atheism. Some folks plan to boycott the film as a sign of protest. Ironically, searches on "atheism" and "define atheism" have both spiked in response to their efforts.

Clearly, people are hearing the message, but not in the way the protestors had hoped. So, will the boycott hurt or help the film's performance? Searches on "the golden compass" are up 50% this past week and queries on "golden compass controversy" have experienced a similar surge. Some people are looking forward to the flick while others are looking forward to convincing folks to stay home. Let's see who will win. - yahoobuzz

anyways for those who haven't seen the movie and it's trailer, here's the trailer of the said movie:
