Friday’s openings: Monsters galore … maybe

Unless some last-minute changes are thrown at us — something that seems to happen with surprising regularity — the movie offerings on Friday will be sparse. The national schedule looks like this:

"A Monster Calls": Dealing with the death of his mother, an adolescent boy calls on an imaginary monster to give him strength. Based on the novel by Patrick Ness. And, yes, that's Liam Neeson doing the voiceover.

"Underworld: Blood Wars": Kate Beckinsale stars in what's being called the last in the "Underworld" series, with her character Selene working hard to end the war between Lycans and Vampires. A little chomp will do ya.

I'll update as the schedule is confirmed. So many good 2016 films yet to see.
