Friday’s openings: Round tables and R-rated jokes

Of the several possible national movie openings set for Friday, only two are guaranteed a wide-spread release. Those two films are:

“King Arthur: Legend of the Sword”: Charlie Hunnam stars as the title character, a man whose eventual gang was a sort of Middle Ages equivalent of the “Sons of Anarchy.”

“Snatched”: Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn star as a daughter-mother couple who get kidnapped while on vacation and have to use their basic skills to get free. As the MPAA advertises, “Rated R for crude sexual content, brief nudity, and language throughout.”

And at the Magic Lantern? In addition to picking up “The Zookeeper’s Wife” for a second-run screening, the Lantern will open one first-run feature:

“A Quiet Passion”: British filmmaker Terence Davies tackles the life and works of the reclusive 19th-century American poet Emily Dickinson. She had no use for Longfellow.

That’s it for now. I’ll update when the final local bookings become available.
