We're down to just two new flicks this week, each representing an aspect of the fantasy genre.

What's It All About:
Brendan Fraser stars as a man with the ability to literally bring characters from books to life by reading aloud.
Why It Might Do Well: A 60% rating at Rottentomatoes.com isn't stellar but it's still fresh, and the film should have strong youth appeal, while fans of the book will want to see it.
Why It Might Not Do Well:
There's always the possibility that it could be mistaken for a documentary on the art of tattooing.
Number of Theaters:
$22 million

Underworld: Rise of the Lycans
What's It All About:
This third installment of the franchise is a prequel, detailing the origins of the animosity between vampires and werewolves.
Why It Might Do Well: Underworld and Underworld Evolution took in $52 million and $62 million respectively, this prequel may do similar numbers. Also having a colon in the title worked pretty well for Paul Blart: Mall Cop, so maybe it will help here.
Why It Might Not Do Well: Director Patrick Tatopoulos is best known as an effects artist. Does he have the chops to helm a feature?
Number of Theaters:
$18 million
