Friday’s openings: Partly cloudy, chance of fun

Looks like varied weather conditions will be moving in on Friday's national movie-release front, which is as follows:

"Geostorm": The world is threatened when a dark force takes over the satellite controlling Earth's weather and begins systematically destroying city after city. Congress will debate the problem when they return from recess.

"Only the Brave": A group of hardy firefighters takes a stand when fire threatens their town. Based on real events.

"The Snowman": Norwegian novelist Jo Nesbø's book about detective Harry Hole tracking down a serial killer is brought to the big screen by the same guy, Thomas Alfredson, who gave us the original "Let the Right One In." Expect the creeps.

"Same Kind of Different As Me": When a woman's dreams about a mysterious man seem to come true, the ensuing events change the course of her marriage — and her husband's life — for the better. Bring a hankie.

"Tyler Perry's Boo 2: A Madea Halloween": More Madea (Tyler Perry), this time encountering strange things on a haunted campground. Comic frights.

As usual, I'll update when the local theaters finalize this schedules.
