This is your one-stop shop for all the weekend's happenings, including concerts, movies and sporting events throughout South Florida.

Music

This seems like an odd pairing. 

Country music duo Florida Georgia Line will join rapper Nelly this Saturday at 7 p.m. at the Coral Sky Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach. What are the chances they tag team "Country Grammar (Hot S***)?"

Pop superstar Bruno Mars brings his 24K Magic Tour to South Florida for a pair of performances, the first of which will take place this Sunday at 8 p.m. at the BB&T Center in Sunrise.

If you can't make it, you could try seeing him a few nights later at the American Airlines Arena in Miami.

Movies

It must be close to Halloween if movies like "Happy Death Day" are opening in theaters this weekend.

This slasher film's premise seems simple enough -- a woman wakes up again and again and again on the same day -- her birthday -- only to be killed. Rinse and repeat. Basically, it's like "Groundhog's Day," only for the horror aficionados.

Since it's Friday the 13th, the Palm Beach County Grindhouse Series is bringing a double bill of "Friday the 13th" and "Friday the 13th Part 2" to the Movies of Lake Worth.

Tickets are $13 for both movies. The original 1980 camp classic begins at 8 p.m.

Jackie Chan is "The Foreigner," based on the 1992 novel "The Chinaman" by Stephen Leather. Chan plays a former Navy SEAL turned restauranteur who is out for revenge after his daughter is killed in a bombing.

Pierce Brosnan, who once had a turn as James Bond, co-stars in this action thriller directed by former 007 director Martin Campbell.

Last but not least, Chadwick Boseman stars at the titular Thurgood Marshall in the legal drama "Marshall," also opening Friday. Hollywood native Josh Gad, Kate Hudson and Sterling K. Brown co-star in the film about the first African-American Supreme Court justice.
