Are you a fan of The Wizard Of Oz? Then you’re going to love this! After much shuffling and shifting of release dates Inkheart looks although it now has a firm release date of 6th January 2009, almost a year after its original release date. The reason for the shift in dates is unclear, but it has to be said that where the first trailer did nothing to excite me, coming across as a poor mans Stardust, this second and much more action stuffed trailer looks brilliant. Though with saying that Andy Serkis still looks like he’s wandered in from a panto!

Inkheart stars Brendan Fraser, Helen Mirren, Paul Bettany and a whole host of other big names in cameo appearances, and concerns Mo ‘Silvertongue’ Folchart (Fraser) who has the ability to bring the pages of books to life simply by reading them. And as mentioned before it looks like alot of those pages are from the land of Oz, and im not talking Australia!

Check the trailer out here, and let’s hope that this is a good Fraser fantasy a la The Mummy rather than Monkeybone or The Mummy 3Inkheart is directed by Iain Softley.
