Friday will offer a case of the opposites in terms of movie openings. Following are the top offerings on the national release schedule:
"Dunkirk": Christopher Nolan takes his blockbuster stylings and puts them toward a bit of World War II history. Shakespeare in a boat.
"Girls Trip": Four longtime girlfriends take time to have a fun time in New Orleans. What happens in the Big Easy, stays there.
"Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets": Luc Besson ("The Fifth Element") returns with another space saga. It's colossal.
And at the Magic Lantern:
"Maudie": Sally Hawkins portrays the real-life Nova Scotian artist Maud Lewis.
I'll outline the final schedule when it becomes available.
