Friday’s openings redux: Supernatural Norway

A couple of additions have been made to the list of Friday's movie openings, which are listed below, including a second run of the Idris Elba-Kate Winslet film "The Mountain Between Us."

The other opening is:

"Thelma": The latest by Norwegian filmmaker Joachim Trier, which will play at AMC River Park Square, "Thelma" tells the story of a young woman whose passion brings about mysterious supernatural occurrences. Call it "Carrie Revisited."

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

Friday’s openings: ‘Blade Runner 2049’ leads

For fans of science fiction, particularly those who admire Ridley Scott's 1982 film "Blade Runner," the coming week should offer a treat like no other: the long-awaited sequel, "Blade Runner 2049."

That film will highlight the national Friday openings schedule, which features:

"Blade Runner 2049": Directed by Denis Villeneuve ("Arrival," "Sicario"), this followup to one of the greatest sci-fi films ever made stars Ryan Gosling as a new-generation blade runner who tracks down his predecessor, Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), in the process of investigating a mystery. Can't wait.

"The Mountain Between Us": Following an airplane accident that leaves them stranded on a snow mountaintop, two strangers (Idris Elba, Kate Winslet) have to depend on each other to survive. And what did you do on your holiday?

"My Little Pony": "A dark force threatens Ponyville …" and that's as far as I got reading the IMDB description. Yes, another kiddie film based on a product for sale.

That's the lot so far. I'll update when the local listings become available.
