The week’s openings: Birds, sharks and The Boss

For the second week in a row, it looks like we can expect a full schedule of movies to open. Among them:


"The Angry Birds Movie 2": Featuring the vocal talents of such actors as Bill Hader, Awkwafina, Jason Sudeikis and Nicki Minaj, the ongoing struggle between the green pigs and the title characters takes a new turn. Oink, tweet!


"47 Meters Down: Uncaged": Four young women take the dive of their lives … and wouldn't you know they encounter a school of hungry sharks? Chomp.

"Blinded by the Light": A Pakistani-English boy finds his life transformed when he discovers the music of Bruce Springsteen. The Boss rules.

"Good Boys": Three sixth-grade boys fall into adult territory involving drugs, older girls and a must-attend party. Oh, yeah, it's a superbad comedy.

"Where'd You Go, Bernadette"?: Cate Blanchett plays the title character, a woman who embarks on a quest to reinvent her life. Based on the novel by Maria Semple.

As usual, I'll update when the area theaters finalize their bookings.
