Firsty the directorial debut of Ben Affleck "Gone Baby Gone".
"Dorchester, one of the toughest neighborhoods in all of Boston, is no place for the weak or innocent. Its a territory defined by hard heads and even harder luck, its streets littered with broken families, hearts, dreams. When one of its own, a 4-year-old girl, goes missing, private investigators Patrick Kenzie (Casey Affleck) and Angela Gennaro (Michelle Monoghan) don't want the case. But after pleas from the child's aunt (Amy Madigan), they open an investigation that will ultimately risk everything -- their relationship, their sanity, and even their lives -- to find a little girl-lost.""
What is to note is this is an adaptation of the book written by "Mystic River" scribe Dennis Lehane. Also perhaps we should watch out for the supporting performances of Amy Madigan, Ed Harris, and Amy Ryan as the girls mother. Also never ever count out Morgan Freeman.
Secondly, word of mouth is not too shabby, and it is a very very important subject to not just me, but to everyone, even those who do not care (and there are surprisingly alot of them out there). Should this take off, look for it to compete with Michael Moore's "Sicko" in the documentary award.
On a personal note, this is something that upsets me greatly. Mankind is a plague to the planet but could so easily be its salvation if only we made an effort. Simple things like recycling, water conservation, buying fuel efficient transport should be law.

Lastly we have "The Jane Austen Book Club". Looks so cheesy and touchy feely and I really want to see it. Not only does it have the yummy Hugh Dancy (sigh) but also Academy darlings Kathy Baker and Lynn Redgrave along side newer and fresher faces itching to be called to the Oscar inner circle such as Maria Bello and Emily Blunt. Would not be surprised at all to see one of the cast memebers break through ala Julia Roberts in "Steel Magnolias" (Me thinks it could be Emily)
