INKHEART
Januray 23

Directed By: Iain Softley
Starring: Brendan Fraser, Paul Bettany, Helen Mirren, Jim Broadbent, Andy Serkis, Sienna Guillory, Eliza Hope Bennett, Rafi Gavron

Mortimer "Mo" Folchart and his 12-year-old daughter, Meggie, share an extraordinary gift for bringing characters from books to life when they read aloud. But there is a danger: when a character is brought to life from a book, a real person disappears into its pages. On one of their trips to a secondhand book shop, Mo locates a book he's been searching for since Meggie was three years old, when her mother, Resa, vanished into its mystical world. But Mo's plan to use the book to find and rescue Resa is thwarted when Capricorn, the evil villain of Inkheart, kidnaps Meggie and, discovering she has inherited her father's gift, demands that she bring to life his most powerful ally, the Shadow. Determined to rescue his daughter and send the fictional characters back where they belong, Mo assembles a small group of friends and family -- some from the real world, some from the pages of books -- and embarks on a daring and perilous journey to set things right.

An all-star cast is featured in the stories of a group of interconnected, Baltimorebased twenty- and thirtysomethings as they navigate their various relationships from the shallow end of the dating pool through the deep, murky waters of married life.

Starring: Jared Padalecki, Danielle Panabaker, Aaron Yoo, Amanda Righetti, Travis Van Winkle, Derek Mears

In this re-imagining of the classic horror film, Clay searches for his missing sister in the eerie woods of legendary Crystal Lake, where he stumbles on the creaky remains of rotting old cabins behind moss-covered trees. And that's not the only thing lying in wait under the brush. Against the advice of police and cautions from the locals, Clay pursues what few leads he has, with the help of a young woman he meets among a group of college kids up for an all-thrills weekend. But they are about to find much more than they bargained for. Little do they know, they've entered the domain of one of the most terrifying specters in American film history -- the infamous killer who haunts Crystal Lake, armed with a razor-sharp machete... Jason Voorhees.

It offers a uniquely inspirational and entertaining way to explore the beauty and natural wonder of the oceans, as well as the impact of global climate change. In IMAX 3D, the images will literally leap off the screen and float around the theatre, putting the audience in the movie.

    A Clint Eastwood film, starring Morgan Freeman as "Nelson Mandela", and Matt Damon as "White guy". Sounds interesting.

    We will be talking about this next year around this time.

    We've see how many top 10 lists this will make.

  • Garrett

    Is it just me or did Robert Downey Jr. get extremely buff?

  • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/blog/brad_brevet/ Brad Brevet

    @Garrett: I'm sure Iron Man helped with that a ton.

  • Seany P

  • Jerzey Jon

  • Pufferbuzz

    Very excited to see My Sister's Keeper.

  • Jerzey Jon

    "HE’S JUST NOT THAT INTO YOU" looks awful.
