Still shot from the movie: Inkheart.


Although Meggie (Eliza Hope Bennett) and her father Mo (Brendan Fraser) love books, he never reads them aloud. That's because the voice of the man with the silver tongue can bring objects and people from the story pages to life. Unfortunately, every time something or someone enters their reality, another disappears into the world of the novel. But Mo may be forced to use his unique talent when Meggie is kidnapped by some unsavory characters that escaped from a book called Inkheart. Get the movie review and more. »

Characters from the Wizard of Oz are also portrayed on the big screen in the 1939 film version of the enchanted story. Like the novelist in this movie, the writer of an adventure series lives a life very different from her hero until she agrees to help an ardent fan in Nim’s Island. Brendan Fraser plays another fictional voyager in the movie Journey to the Center of the Earth 3D based on a book by Jules Verne.
