Inkheart Trailer in Theaters

A terrific Inkheart trailer was shown before the sneak preview of The Golden Compass last night. It wasn’t the same as the one briefly on youtube and doesn’t seem available anywhere yet. Anyway, it looked great and very promising in terms of attracting a wide audience. The casting looks very good. Many of us know that Funke wrote Mo with Brendan Fraser in mind, but I have no idea if she was thinking of anyone specific for the rest of the characters. Certainly, those in the trailer looked just right to me. I do wonder how they will end that movie! As much as cliffhanger as The Golden Compass!

Here’s the cast list from Cornelia Funke’s site:

Mo – Brendan Fraser (Crash, The Quiet American, The Mummy)

Meggie – Eliza Bennett (Nanny McPhee)

Dustfinger – Paul Bettany (A Knight`s Tale, A Beautiful Mind)

Farid – Rafi Gavron (Breaking and Entering)

Resa – Sienna Guillory (Eragon, Resident Evil, Love Actually)

Elinor – Helen Mirren (The Queen, Elizabeth I, Calendar Girls)

Fenoglio – Jim Broadbent (Moulin Rouge, The Chronicles of Narnia)

Capricorn – Andy Serkis (The Lord of the Rings, King Kong)

Mortola – Lesley Sharp (Vera Drake, From Hell)

Basta – Jamie Foreman (Layer Cake, Polanski`Oliver Twist)
