A young girl's father has the power to bring characters from books to life by reading those books aloud. When a power-hungry villain from a rare children's fable kidnaps the man, his daughter bands with a group of friends both real and imagined to set things right.
This, according to TrailerAddict.com, is the plot of a new Brendan Fraser film that opens right after the holiday season.
Usually, movies released at that time of year are considered DOA, and what's funny about it is if this preview is any indication, they could probably have done well during the holiday season. The movie is based on the fantasy novel trilogy called Inkworld which was written by Cornelia Funke.
Besides Fraser, the movie also stars Paul Bettany, Jim Broadbent, Helen Mirren, and Andy Serkis. Inkheart is directed by Iain Softley. Softley is best known for K-Pax, and The Skeleton Key.
