Friday’s openings: Chefs, zombies and climate change

Dan Webster

Bradley Cooper as a chef, a Cannes winner about trained killer and zombies will grace local movie screens beginning Friday. Which sounds just about right for a Daylight Savings Time weekend. The week's openings are as follows:

"Burnt": Cooper plays a foodie hotshot who flames out in Paris but manages to wrangle a second chance at chefly success. Make mine Tums, please.

"Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse": Three young Scouts attempt to save their hometown from a zombie attack. Clearly, zombies aren't trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly or anything else remotely Scoutish.

And at the Magic Lantern:

"The Assassin": As I noted last week, this Cannes winner by Taiwanese director Hou Hsaio-Hsien pits a woman assassin between her mentor and the man she had been destined to marry. So, he didn't go to Jared?

"This Changes Everything": Avi Lewis' documentary focuses on seven communities around the world that are using inventive ways to deal with climate change. Just ask Al Gore.

Stay tune for changes, should they occur. Until then, go see a movie. And enjoy.
