Friday’s openings: Heists and hitmen

Dan Webster

Comic action, some of it no doubt farcical, will be on the movie schedule Friday when the new slate of movies opens. Friday's national openings are as follows:

"The Hitman's Bodyguard": Ryan Reynolds stars as a professional bodyguard who is hired to protect a notorious professional assassin (played by Samuel L. Jackson). Expect a few uses of the F-word. A few.

"Logan Lucky": A pair of not-so-bright brothers attempts to pull off a heist during a NASCAR race. The cast is interesting, from Adam Driver and Channing Tatum as the brothers, to Daniel Craig, Hilary Swank and Katie Holmes as supporting players. But the key hire: Steven Soderbergh as director. Can't wait.

As usual, I'll update as the local listing become final.
