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.
