The movie trailer for Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium is now online. This is the same trailer that we told you last week would be attached to Disney/Pixar’s Ratatouille on Friday.
Emporium is a Charlie and the Chocolate Factory-like fantasy film written by Zach Helm, who we like to refer to as the Hollywood-ized Charlie Kaufman (Helm wrote Stranger Than Fiction). His directorial debut stars Jason Bateman, Natalie Portman and Dustin Hoffman. How could you go wrong with Natalie Portman and Dustin Hoffman? The story is about an eccentric toy store owner named Mr. Edward Magorium (Hoffman), who hands over his Emporium to his assistant Molly Mahoney (Portman). Things soon turn for the worse when Molly does not believe in the enchanted side of it and the magic fades. The movie will hit theaters on November 16th 2007. Check out the new trailer after the jump.
