Also on Friday: ‘Come From Away’ Musical

The most entertaining selection from a weekend of 9/11 remembrances will likely be the films version of the Tony-winning musical “Come From Away” (Apple TV+, streaming), about Canadians’ embrace of Americans stranded after the attacks. The cast includes original Broadway cast members Petrina Bromley, Jenn Colella, Joel Hatch and Caesar Samoya as well as additions De’Lon Grant, Tony LePage and Emily Walton. 

The performance was filmed in May before an audience that included 9/11 survivors and frontline workers.

Other 9/11 fare tonight includes “9/11: The Legacy” (History, 7 p.m.), concentrating on children: the eight who died that day and the more than 3,000 who lost parents that day; and “Rise and Fall: the World Trade Center” (History, 8 p.m.) about the building of the towers and their eventual destruction; “The Race Against Time: The CIA and 9/11” (CBS, 8 p.m.), “The Hunt for Bin Laden” (Smithsonian, 9 p.m.), and replays of “9/11: One Day in America” (National Geographic, 9 p.m.) and “Generation 9/11” (PBS, 9 p.m., check local listings).

James Wan’s horror film “Malignant” (HBO Max, streaming) gets a dual premiere today in theaters and on the streaming service. It stars Annabelle Wallis as a woman with bad dreams. 

Mary Elizabeth Winstead stars in the action thriller “Kate” (Netflix, streaming) about a poisoned assassin who has 24 hours to exact revenge. Mike Martineau and Woody Harrelson also star. 

In another new movie, a hiking trip turns deadly as a mysterious shooter takes aim at them in the German import “Prey” (Netflix, streaming). It’s the first in a series of new Friday night thrillers set to premiere over the next two months on the service.
