Friday’s openings: Aliens, zombies and Shaft

It looks to be a blockbuster weekend, what with the movies projected to open on Friday (according to the national movie-release schedule):

"Men in Black International": A new crew (played by Tessa Thompson and Chris Hemsworth) fights space creatures who have infiltrated their organization while providing said organization with a bit of gender diversity. Me, too, goes extraterrestrial.

"Shaft": The grandson (played by Jesse T. Usher) of the original character (played by Richard Roundtree) and his son (played by Samuel L. Jackson) uses his computer skills to investigate his friend's death. He's a bad mother … shut your mouth!

"The Dead Don't Die": Jim Jarmush enlists the likes of Bill Murray and Adam Driver to tell a zombie tale. Seems the dead still walk.

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