Brendan Fraser in Inkheart

Warner Bros. has just sent the first trailer for the upcoming family fantasy Inkheart our way. The film stars Brendan Fraser as Brendan Fraser Mo Folchart, a father who possesses a secret ability to bring characters from books to life when he reads them aloud. But when Mo accidentally brings a power-hungry villain from a rare children’s fable to life, the villain kidnaps Mo’s daughter and demands Mo bring other evil fictional characters to life. In an attempt to rescue his daughter, Mo assembles a disparate group of friends – both real and magic – and embarks on a journey to save her and set things right.

Personally, I am growing a little tired of all these Brendan Fraser-led adventure movies like Journey to the Center of the Earth and The Mummy III. If you are not sick of seeing Brendan Fraser in a movie where the lead-in is “Journey to a world,” then here’s your stinkin’ trailer:

Inkheart will hit theaters on January 9, 2009. Inkheart is based on a book by Cornelia Funke, who is of no relation to Arrested Development’s Tobias Funke, just in case you were wondering. It also stars Helen Mirren, Paul Bettany, Andy Serkis and Jim Broadbent.

The fine folks at WB also sent over a small gallery of images, as well as the film’s poster, all of which can be seen below.
