Friday’s openings: A new nation of droogies

Revenge, betrayal and a bit of the old ultra-violence are on tap when Friday's movies open. According to the national release schedule, we can expect the following:

"Death Wish": Bruce Willis takes over the role that Charles Bronson (Charles Bronson!) made famous in Michael Winner's 1974 original vigilante flick about a man going after the bad guys who attacked his wife and daughter. NRA approved.

"Red Sparrow": Jennifer Lawrence affects a Russian accent to play a woman who is forced to become a sex-agent/hired-killer. These are the kinds of roles that an Oscar will open up for you.

As always, I'll update when the local theaters finalize their listings.
