Violence and horror will be on the movie menu this coming Friday, or so says the national release schedule. The two wide releases are:
"The Rhythm Section": Blake Lively stars as a woman bent on avenging the deaths of family members, and that means several people gonna have to die. None of them run movie studios, though.
"Gretel and Hansel": The old Grimm Brothers folk tale, which hails from Germany, is retold with Gretel taking the lead. But there's still a witch, the kids are still hungry and dangers still lurks that these deep, dark woods.
And at the Magic Lantern? Spokane's arthouse movie theater will screen the Oscar-nominated Live Action and Animated shorts programs.
But as usual, there's likely to be more. I'll update as the area theaters finalize their bookings.
