Plus: PEOPLE's film critic gives you the rundown on The Invisible Woman and Jessica Biel's latest attempt at a stirring drama.
Here's what to see and what to skip at the movies:

Abigail Breslin may be best known as a 9-year-old Oscar nominee. But the Little Miss Sunshine star has plenty of other pursuits these days – including boys.
The actress – who, with her long blonde hair, looked almost unrecognizable last month at the August: Osage County premiere – has been writing music lately, and tells ABC News that many of the songs are about young love.
"Boys and life. I mean, I'm 17," she says. "So, basically that's the thing that runs through my head every day. So yeah, lots about boys."

Devoted daughter Chloë Grace Moretz has issued a heartfelt request on behalf of her mom, Teri.
"Please pray for my mama <3" the Carrie actress Tweeted on Tuesday, without elaborating on the reason why.
Earlier this year, the 16-year-old starlet opened up to InStyle U.K. about her mom's cancer battle when she was 10, calling it "scary and hard," reports the Daily Mail.

We fell in love with her in Little Miss Sunshine as a young girl who lives for pageants, her grandpa and quirky outfits.
Now, Abigail Breslin is all grown up and almost unrecognizable – her light blond locks have even her August: Osage County costars doing double takes.
"The cast doesn't recognize me," Breslin tells E! of her more platinum hair. "I was like, 'Hey guys!' and they were like, 'Who's this random girl crashing our photo shoot today?' "

Little Miss Sunshine Abigail Breslin just got a raise.
The Oscar-nominated actress rakes in an estimated $2 million per movie these days, yet, her allowance only went up by $1 in April.
"I get $13 [a week] now, because I'm 13," she said at the Manhattan premiere of My Sister's Keeper with Cameron Diaz last week.
Breslin, who has been in show business since she was 5, ranked eighth in Forbes magazine's list of "Young Hollywood's Top-Earning Stars," in 2007 after pulling in $1.5 million in 2006. At home, she's earned her age the past couple years, and, with her most-recent pay raise comes more responsibility. "My chores have gotten a little heavier," she says. "My brother used to always to feed the cat and now I feed the cat, which isn't a big deal, but it kind of is, because my cat eats tons. It's like an all-day long cycle."

Julia Roberts may be a global superstar, but Thursday night Abigail Breslin was the focus of screaming fans – hordes of little girls, that is – at the premiere of Kit Kittredge: An American Girl.
Roberts, as one of the film's executive producers, made an appearance on the red carpet at Manhattan's Ziegfield Theatre, along with Julianne Moore and her kids, and Jada Pinkett Smith and daughter Willow, who appears in the movie. But it was 12-year-old Breslin, the lead in the film inspired by the American Girl doll phenomenon, who drew the star worship, with packs of girls – many of them carrying their American Girl dolls – swarming, screaming and trying to track her with their cell phones.
Breslin told PEOPLE she also relates to the Girl craze. "I grew up with all the dolls," she said. "I collected all the dolls since I was eight or so. I've just always liked the dolls, and Kit was always my favorite."

The Happening is one summer movie that is decidedly not kid-friendly.
Although he is most famous for his twist endings (The Sixth Sense), director M. Night Shyamalan gets downright gory in his first R-rated film, which premiered Tuesday in New York City. The doomsday thriller stars Mark Wahlberg as a father trying to keep his family safe from a mysterious airborne illness.
At Tuesday's screening, costar Spencer Breslin, 16 – whose sister is Little Miss Sunshine actress Abigail Breslin, 12 – said he planned to cover Abigail's eyes "a couple of times."
But it must not have worked: Leaving the theater after the screening, Abigail told her parents, "I'm not going to sleep."
