HBO's 'His Dark Materials' Gets First Full Trailer - Watch Now!

Check out the trailer for HBO’s new fantasy series His Dark Materials!

The network released the teaser for its adaptation of Philip Pullman’s trilogy book series (“The Golden Compass,” “The Subtle Knife,” and “The Amber Spyglass”) on Friday (May 17), just as Game of Thrones is coming to an end.

His Dark Materials, co-produced by the BBC, is directed by Tom Hooper and stars Logan’s Dafne Keen as Lyra, Ruth Wilson as Marisa Coulter, James McAvoy as Lord Asriel, and Lin-Manuel Miranda as Lee Scoresby.

The first season follows “Lyra, a seemingly ordinary but brave young woman from another world. Her search for a kidnapped friend uncovers a sinister plot involving stolen children, and becomes a quest to understand a mysterious phenomenon called Dust. As she journeys through the worlds, including our own, Lyra meets Will, a determined and courageous boy. Together, they encounter extraordinary beings and dangerous secrets, with the fate of both the living — and the dead — in their hands.”

His Dark Materials will premiere later this year on HBO. Watch the trailer!

Lin-Manuel Miranda Says He Gets Inspired By 'Not Pleasurable Experiences at The Theater'

Lin-Manuel Miranda is dapper in a suit while attending the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center’s 2019 Monte Cristo Award Gala held at The Edison Ballroom on Monday (April 22) in New York City.

While at the event, the Hamilton creator opened up about how he manages to stay inspired to create groundbreaking pieces of work.

“I take lots of breaks because I find that the best ideas come when I’m on vacation and when I’m not looking for them,” Miranda, 39, told Page Six. “The other thing I do is I go see a lot of work and I read a lot of work and I’m inspired by the things that inspire me.”

“I’m inspired by the things that I really don’t like and go, ‘What would I do differently?’” Miranda added, “You know you can get inspiration from even not pleasurable experiences at the theater.”

The Monte Cristo Award, which Miranda received in 2018, was presented this year to playwright and screenwriter John Logan, who is known for his work on Skyfall, The Aviator and Gladiator.
