Plot Summary:

Mortimer “Mo” Folchart (Brendan Fraser) and his 12-year-old daughter, Meggie (Eliza Hope Bennett), share a passion for books. What they also share is 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 hears voices he hasn’t heard for years, and when he locates the book they’re coming from, it sends a shiver up his spine. It’s Inkheart, a book filled with illustrations of medieval castles and strange creatures–a book he’s been searching for since Meggie was three years old, when her mother, Resa (Sienna Guillory), vanished into its mystical world.

But Mo’s plan to use the book to find and rescue Resa is thwarted when Capricorn (Andy Serkis), the evil villain of Inkheart, kidnaps Meggie and, discovering she has inherited her father’s gift, demands that she bring his most powerful ally to life–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.

Plot: When California girl Susan Murphy (Reese Witherspoon) is unexpectedly clobbered by a meteor full of outer space gunk, she mysteriously grows to 49-feet 11-inches tall and is instantly labeled a "monster" named Ginormica. The military jumps into action, and she is captured and held in a secret government compound. The world learns that the military has been quietly rounding up other monsters over the years. This ragtag group consists of the brilliant but insect-headed Dr. Cockroach, Ph.D. (Hugh Laurie); The macho half-ape, half-fish The Missing Link (Will Arnett); The gelatinous and indestructible B.O.B. (Seth Rogen); and the 350-foot grub called Insectosaurus. Their confinement time is cut short however, when a mysterious alien robot lands on Earth and begins storming the country.

As a last resort, under the guidance of General W.R. Monger (Kiefer Sutherland) – on a desperate order from The President (Stephen Colbert) – the motley crew of Monsters is called into action to combat the aliens and save the world from imminent destruction.

"Monsters vs. Aliens" is scheduled to hit conventional and 3-D IMAX theaters on March 27th, 2009.

Based on Neil Gaiman’s international best-selling book, "Coraline" is the story of a young girl (Dakota Fanning) who unlocks a mysterious door in her new home, and enters into an adventure in a parallel reality. On the surface, this other world eerily mimics her own life – though much more fantastical. In it, Coraline encounters such off-kilter inhabitants as the morbidly funny Miss Forcible and Miss Spink, and a counterfeit mother (Teri Hatcher) – who attempts to keep her. Ultimately, Coraline must count on her resourcefulness, determination, and bravery to get back home.

"Coraline" is scheduled to hit theaters on February 6th, 2009.

"I don’t think our Batman, our Gotham, lends itself to that kind of cross-fertilization," said Nolan. "It goes back to one of the first things we wrangled with when we first started putting the story together: Is this a world in which comic books already exist? Is this a world in which superheroes already exist?"

He continued: "If you think of ‘Batman Begins’ and you think of the philosophy of this character trying to reinvent himself as a symbol, we took the position — we didn’t address it directly in the film, but we did take the position philosophically — that superheroes simply don’t exist. If they did, if Bruce [Wayne] knew of Superman or even of comic books, then that’s a completely different decision that he’s making when he puts on a costume in an attempt to become a symbol. It’s a paradox and a conundrum, but what we did is go back to the very original concept and idea of the character. In his first appearances, he invents himself as a totally original creation."

So the question is: Would Nolan’s Batman be different if he knew that Superman existed?

 



In the movie, a young boy named Goku seeks out upon his grandfather’s dying request to find the great Master Roshi and gather all seven Dragon Balls (of which he has one) in order to prevent Piccolo from succeeding in his desire to use the Dragon Balls to take over the world.

"Dragonball" also stars Emmy Rossum as Bulma, Chow Yun-Fat as Roshi and James Marsters as the nefarious Piccolo. "Dragonball" hits theaters on April 10, 2009.

The “Army of Two” video game has sold more than 1 million units since it launched in March. A sequel is believed to be in the works. The game is a two-player action contest in which a pair of private military contractors fight their way through a web of intrigue.

Because people experience the game in pairs, playing two guys who go against the world, [producer Scott Stuber] and I agreed this format presented an opportunity to make a great buddy film,” Burns said. “The ambiguity of these private military corporations lends weight to an intelligent thriller with relevance to what’s going on in the world right now. You have contractors with their own agendas, and two guys whose friendship supersedes all the politics. I told EA right off the bat I wasn’t a gamer, and that appealed to them because they didn’t want to simply replicate the game.

This is the third EA project to go the Big Screen route recent months. “The Sims” is being developed at 20th Century Fox with producer John Davis, while sci-fi game “Mass Effect” has been optioned by Avi Arad Productions. It’s another big game title for Universal, which acquired “BioShock” for a film that Gore Verbinski will direct.

Are you glad that Videos Games are being adapted to movies?
