Sandra Bullock co-stars as the voice of Scarlet Overkill, the world’s first female super-villain.

“THE GALLOWS”: Promoted with the tagline “Every school has its spirit,” this horror film takes place 20 years after a deadly accident occurred during a high school play. A revival of the play in honor of the accident’s victim goes horribly wrong.

“3 ½ MINUTES, 10 BULLETS”: After Michael Dunn, a middle-aged white man, and Jordan Davis, a black teenager, argued about loud music at a Florida gas station, Dunn shot 10 bullets into a car filled with unarmed teenagers. Davis, 17, died at the scene. This documentary reconstructs the events. Showing at 7:30 p.m. Monday at the Zeitgeist Multi-Disciplinary Center, 1618 Oretha Castle Haley Blvd.
