Friday’s openings: Disney, Mr. Rogers and … crime?

"A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood": Nice-guy Tom Hanks plays the late nice guy Fred Rogers in this bio-pic based on the Esquire magazine profile by Tom Junod. Won't you be my neighbor?

"21 Bridges": Chadwick Boseman plays an NYPD detective who, in investigating the deaths of two police officers, discovers a larger conspiracy. And, no, it doesn't take him to Wakanda.
