Star-Bulletin Features

Tuesday, November 20, 2001



This listing of previews runs Tuesdays in the Star-Bulletin. In light of the Thanksgiving holiday, this week's openings start tomorrow, instead of the usual Friday:

Black Knight -- Martin Lawrence is back as a Medieval World theme-park employee who finds himself magically transported to 14th-century England after getting conked on the head. It's Lawrence's African-American comedy riffs on everything that's both medieval and English (PG-13).

Out Cold -- Broad comedy (by the looks of the trailer and TV ads) about a snowboarder's plans to start his own park going awry when his girlfriend returns to town (R).

Spy Game -- Tony Scott ("Enemy of the State") directs Robert Redford and Brad Pitt in a movie about the conflicted relationship between a CIA operative, who's being held in a Chinese prison, and his mentor, who finds himself trying to free the operative the day before he's due to retire. The two marquee actors last appeared together in Redford's own 1992 film "A River Runs Through It" (R).
