Friday’s openings redux: Seberg and kid superheroes

It looks as if a couple of other movies have been added to Friday's list of openings. One is an arthouse offering while the other is aimed at anime fans. The added films are:

"Seberg": Kristin Stewart stars as the ill-fated actress Jean Seberg who was targeted by the FBI for her political activities. Directed by Benedict Andrews, best known for his updated stage productions of "A Streetcar Named Desire" and "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof."
