Kathryn Stockett’s popular novel, The Help, gets made into a movie with Stone, Viola Davis (Doubt), Bryce Dallas Howard (Terminator Salvation), Sissy Spacek (Carrie), Allison Janney (The West Wing), and Chris Powell (who I wasn’t a fan of on Veronica Mars, but I hope he shows his abs in the movie like he did on Private Practice—that would be the highlight if it’s a bad adaptation and the cherry on top if the movie’s good). Set in the South, the story looks at one moral white woman and several courageous black women who stand up and reveal what it’s really like to serve white folks. Expected U.S. release date: Aug. 12, 2011

In my opinion, Terri looks like one of the more promising comedies of the year. The picture revolves around a 15 year-old-boy who likes to wear his pajamas everywhere. John C. Reilly (Cyrus) reaches out to him and the results are hilarious. Expected U.S. release date:July 1, 2011

The Art of Getting By also looks pretty good in its simplicity. Freddie Highmore (Finding Neverland) befriends and falls for the popular girl, Emma Roberts (Scream 4). Expected U.S. release date:June 17, 2011
