Led by helicopter Blade Ranger (voiced by Ed Harris), the team includes a tanker named Dipper (voiced by Julie Bowen) who has her prop set on Dusty. The film has plenty of colorful action, silly comic relief and just enough heart to make even the most jaded moviegoer smile. (1hr, 34min)

Begin Again (R)
• 8:15p.m. Homer Theatre. The latest film from writer-director John Carney (ONCE), this current film is a soul-stirring comedy about what happens when lost souls meet and make beautiful music together. Gretta (Keira Knightley) and her long-time boyfriend Dave (Adam Levine) are college sweethearts and songwriting partners who decamp for New York when he lands a deal with a major label. But the trappings of his new-found fame soon tempt Dave to stray, and a reeling, lovelorn Gretta is left on her own. Her world takes a turn for the better when Dan (Mark Ruffalo), a disgraced record-label exec, stumbles upon her performing on an East Village stage and is immediately captivated by her raw talent. From this chance encounter emerges an enchanting portrait of a mutually transformative collaboration, set to the soundtrack of a summer in New York City. (1hrs, 52min)
