Friday’s openings: Snarky squirrels and haunted dolls

Movie theaters will be offering a range of entertainment on Friday, from family fare to horror to fact-finding. The opening movies are as follows:

"The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature": More adventures involving animals battling a human's attempts to bulldoze a park so that he can build an amusement center. Sounds squirrely. (Yeah, yeah, bad pun.)

"Rough Night": Four college friends get together for a Miami weekend that goes wrong every way possible. Sounds like "Girls Trip," only with Scarlett Johansson instead of Queen Latifah.

"Annabelle: Creation": A grieving couple takes in a group of orphans only to have them all haunted by a doll inhabited by their dead daughter. Another chapter in the "Conjuring" — cough, cough — series.

"The Glass Castle": A young woman (Brie Larson) must reconcile her mixed feelings about the father who raised her family outside of basic societal norms. Based on a memoir by Jeannette Walls, which sounds like "Captain Fantastic" — only true.

"An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power": The follow to "An Inconvenient Truth." Yeah, the climate is changing.

Go see a movie. And enjoy.
