Deep Blue Sea
Rated R
A Renny Harlin-directed thriller about a group of marine researchers menaced by genetically altered sharks.


Three movies open on Friday:

Blair Witch Project
Rated R
Spooky-looking pseudo-documentary about a mysterious local legend. Supposedly uses footage shot by film students who were never heard from again and that explains their terrifying experience and disappearance.

Rated R
John Sayles' new movie follows a down-on-her-luck lounge singer (Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio) and her teen-age daughter to a small Alaska town where all the inhabitants are in a state of limbo -- caught by circumstances.

Runaway Bride
Rated PG
Julia Roberts plays a woman who never can quite make it all the way down the aisle, which piques the interest of headline-hungry reporter Richard Gere, who investigates and is hooked.

There will be sneak previews of one movie on Sunday

The Iron Giant
