Friday’s openings: Several ways of being saved

Looks like a full range of movie will hit the nation's theaters on Friday, several (or all) of which should open in the Spokane area. Friday's openings are:

"Unsane": Here's the IMDB description: "A young woman is involuntarily committed to a mental institution, where she is confronted by her greatest fear — but is it real or a product of her delusion?" What make the film special? Its director: Steven Soderbergh.

"Midnight Sun": A young woman with a condition that forces her to avoid the sun at all costs falls for the hunk who lives nearby. No, she's not a vampire.

"Pacific Rim Uprising": You may have thought the Kaiju threat was over. Not a chance. And so a new generation of Jaeger pilots, led by Jake Pentecost (John Boyega), has to rise to the challenge. Banzai!

"Paul, Apostle of Christ": The life of the Paul of the film's title is told, from before the time he joins Matthew, Mark, Luke, John and the other Disciples of Jesus.

"Sherlock Gnomes": Now they're making movies about garden gnomes? Apparently, and they're dragging the famous British detective Sherlock Holmes into the story.

And at the Magic Lantern:

"Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story": A bio-pic about the one-time controversial movie star who was far smarter than the general public ever knew.

That's the initial list. I'll update as the local theaters finalist their schedules.
