Universal

Cleveland Heep (Paul Giamatti) rescues a mysterious woman (Bryce Dallas Howard) and discovers she is a character from a fairytale. Cleveland starts to realise that he is a character in this bedtime story. Cleveland falls in love and protects his new fragile friend from the deadly creatures that reside in this fable. The flick is based on a bedtime story that filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan wrote for his kids. Composer/musician/songwriter James Newton Howard returns with a lilting score continuing his collaboration with Shyamalan. His scores for The Village (with violin solos by Hilary Hahn) and also for Batman Begins that he co-wrote with Hans Zimmer received rave reviews with the former bagging him an Oscar nominee. Going by this versatile composer, Pretty Woman, The Fugitive, My Best Friend's Wedding and Waterworld included among his works, this is one to watch out for.
