Friday’s openings: Cowboys and Halloween creeps

Update: Along with the movies listed below, the following also are scheduled to open in area theaters:

"The Old Man & the Gun": Robert Redford plays an elderly bank robber. Sundance didn't die in Bolivia?

"The Oath": When families gather for Thanksgiving, political discussions often become heated — especially for Mason (Billy Magnussen). Everyone has an annoying in-law.

At least two main releases are due out on Friday, according to the national movie-release schedule:

"Halloween": It's that time of trick or treating again, and Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) is waiting for her longtime nemesis, Michael Myers, to return … so she can kill him once and for all. Yeah, fat chance.

"The Hate U Give": A young woman witnesses the death of her friend and becomes a public symbol of resistance.

And at the Magic Lantern?

"The Sisters Brothers": Jacques Audiard ("Rust and Bone," "A Prophet") cowrote and directed this film about two brothers (Joaquin Phoenix, John C. Reilly) in 1850s Oregon who work as trained assassins.

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