Friday’s openings: Guns, dogs, poets and spies

Keanu, Keanu and more Keanu highlights the coming week of movies. According to the national release schedule, we can expect to see the following on Friday:

"John Wick: Chapter 3 — Parabellum": When the second chapter of the "John Wick" trilogy ended (in 2017, following the 2014 first segment), our protagonist had broken a sacred rule and now has to face the consequences — dozens of killers looking to collect on a mullion-million-dollar bounty. Can Mr. Reeves handle the action?

"A Dog's Journey": A dog lives several lives. But not nine, which would make him a cat.

"The Sun Is Also a Star": Young love slowly blooms. But nothing comes easily, right?

And at the Magic Lantern?

"Wild Nights With Emily": Molly Shannon plays Emily Dickinson in this intimate view of the noted poet. Hint: It involves other women.

"Red Joan": Judi Dench plays the title character, Joan Stanley, who was a real-life KGB spy. The name is Stanley, Joan Stanley.

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