Based on what's jumping from page to screen, June has apparently been anointed the month of childhood. There aren't a lot of adaptions out there this time around - only four - but two of those are based on children's books and the other two take inspiration from old-school comics, so it seems Hollywood screenwriters are waxing a bit nostalgic. Are you? Video after the jump!
