We're finally getting some movie action this holiday period, as several big-screen productions are set to open (or go wide) on Friday, according to the national movie-release schedule:
"Bombshell": Margaret Robbie, Charlize Theron and Nicole Kidman play real-life blond news announcers who were involved, in one way or another, with Fox News chief Roger Ailes (John Lithgow). Fair and balanced, you know?
"Black Christmas": A stranger involved with a bizarre underground group stalks young sorority women. And not, one suspects, for dating purposes.
"Richard Jewell": Clint Eastwood does another inspired-by-headlines movie, this one about the security guard who was accused of planting a bomb at the 1996 Atlanta Summer Olympics. Terrorist … or hero?
That's it for the moment. As always, I'll update when the area theaters finalize their bookings.
