Emma Stone, Viola Davis tackle Civil Rights in “The Help” trailer

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: As moviegoers prepare for this weekend’s literary adaptation of “Water for Elephants,” Hollywood begins teasing another anticipated film that’s based on a best-selling book.

Tate Taylor will direct Emma Stone, Bryce Dallas Howard, Viola Davis, Allison Janney and Sissy Spacek in “The Help,” a timeless story pulled from Kathryn Stockett’s book about the shrinking cultural divide between Southern belles in the 1960s and their African-American help. Stone plays an aspiring journalist who puts herself in the thick of the Civil Rights Movement to try and make a difference.

The latest trailer makes “The Help” look like inspirational and comical. Hopefully Taylor knows when to lean on one to enhance the other. To get a look, click the player below.

“The Help” will be in theaters on Aug. 12.
