Friday’s openings redux: Five more great escapes

With area theaters having finalized their bookings, Friday's amended movie-release schedule boasts a number of changes:

"McQueen": The life of the late fashion designer Alexander McQueen is profiled in this probing documentary. Time to dress up.

"Beautifully Broken": The lives of three families are intertwined by war. Bring a conscience.  

"Papillon": Charlie Hunnam stars as the protagonist, Henri "Papillon" Charrière, in this retold story of the man who escaped from a French penal colony. Remember Steve McQueen.

"Puzzle": A suburban woman's life takes a new turn when she discovers a talent for solving jigsaw puzzles. Start with the corners.

"2001: A Space Odyssey" (2D experience in IMAX): Stanley Kubrick's classic 1968 sci-fi film will screen for the first time in IMAX format (at AMC River Park Square). HAL? HAL? Do you read me, HAL?

That's the list. So go, see a movie. And enjoy.
