Cooper (who also di­rects) plays Jack­son Maine, an al­co­holic coun­try singer whose ca­reer is on the wane.

VENOM

Sony Pic­tures ceded par­tial cre­ative con­trol of Spider-Man to Marvel Stu­dios, but they’re left with a slew of char­ac­ters re­lated to Spidey with which to do what­ever they like. The first of these is Venom, Spider-Man’s gi­ant-tongue-wag­ging, su­per-strong neme­sis. Tom Hardy plays Ed­die Brock, a jour­nal­ist who in­ves­ti­gates the sus­pi­cious re­search at the Life Foun­da­tion. He dis­cov­ers they’re ex­per­i­ment­ing on an alien, which grafts it­self to his body, grant­ing him su­per­pow­ers and an evil dis­po­si­tion. He puts those pow­ers to work when the Life Foun­da­tion tries to re­trieve it. Michelle Wil­liams also stars. Rated PG-13. 112 min­utes. Screens in 2D and 3D at Re­gal Sta­dium; Vi­o­let Crown.
