Inkheart stars Brendan Fraser and Andy Serkis and appears involve a villain who escapes from a book into reality – kinda like Last Action Hero for fancypants nerds who like words (and eat turds. and watch birds. and travel in herds).

The book is about a girl named Meggie Folchart whose life changes dramatically when she realizes that her father, a bookbinder named Mortimer (nicknamed Mo), has an unusual ability: when he reads aloud, he can bring characters from books into the real world. [Wiki]

Directed by Iain Softley, from a David Lindsay-Abaire script, based on Cornelia Funke’s novel, everyone involved with Inkheart has a sissy name.  Seriously, I don’t know who any of these people are, but as far as I’m concerned they might as well be named Limpwrist Rogerbottom numbers 1-3.

Oh Brendan Fraser.  He’s like the thinking man’s Paul Walker. (In theatres March 19th)
