The week’s opening redux (2): More screen riches

Seems like it's going to be a big movie week after all, what with the openings — both new and old — that are scheduled for Friday. The list includes:

"Bennet's War": A wounded veteran trains to become a motocross racer. Family first.

"Killerman": A guy suffering from amnesia, but carrying a load of drugs and stolen loot, tries to stay ahead of his enemies — including crooked cops. No time for fast food.

"After the Wedding": Michelle Williams plays the manager of a Kolkata orphanage who travels to New York to accept a generous donation. Only the donor (Julianne Moore) has ulterior motives. 

"The Matrix: 20th Anniversary": The Wachowskis' masterpiece of perception returns for its anniversary run. Which pill will you take: the blue or the red?

That's the list. A special screening of "Lawrence of Arabia" is scheduled to play at 1 p.m. Sunday at the Regal Cinemas outlets at Northtown Mall and Coeur d'Alene's Riverstone Cinemas. I'll post more on that later.

Now go, see a movie. And enjoy.
