Keira Knightley and Adam Levine star in “Begin Again.”
Begin Again features Knightley, Ruffalo; Dawn of the Planet of the Apes targets sci fi fans. A number of new movies will hit theaters this week, including the following films opening in wide release:

Begin Again
Genre: Romance
Cast: Keira Knightley, Mark Ruffalo, Hailee Steinfeld, Adam Levine, Catherine Keener and Cee Lo Green
Director: John Carney
Rated: R

The latest film from writer-director John Carney, “Begin Again” 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.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
Genre: Science fiction
Cast: Andy Serkis, Jason Clarke, Gary Oldman, Keri Russell, Toby Kebbell, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Enrique Murciano, Kirk Acevedo and Judy Greer
Director: Matt Reeves
Rated: PG-13

A growing nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar is threatened by a band of human survivors of the devastating virus unleashed a decade earlier.

They reach a fragile peace, but it proves short-lived, as both sides are brought to the brink of a war that will determine who will emerge as Earth’s dominant species.

The following will open in limited release. It may be several weeks before these films appear in local movie theaters.

A Long Way Down
Genre: Drama
Cast: Pierce Brosnan, Toni Collette, Imogen Poots, Aaron Paul, Rosamund Pike, Sam Neill and Tuppence Middleton
Director: Pascal Chaumeil
Rated: R

Based on the acclaimed novel by Nick Hornby, “A Long Way Down” stars Pierce Brosnan, Toni Collette, Aaron Paul and Imogen Poots as four strangers who happen to meet on the roof of a London building on New Year’s Eve each with the intent of committing suicide.

Their plans for death in solitude are ruined so they mutually agree to call off their plans for six weeks, forming an unconventional, dysfunctional family and searching together for the reasons to keep on living.

Boyhood
Genre: Drama
Cast: Patricia Arquette, Ellar Coltrane, Lorelei Linklater and Ethan Hawke
Director: Richard Linklater
Rated: R

Filmed over 12 years with the same cast, Richard Linklater's “Boyhood” is a groundbreaking story of growing up as seen through the eyes of a child named Mason (Ellar Coltrane), who literally grows up on screen before our eyes.

Starring Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette as Mason's parents and newcomer Lorelei Linklater as his sister Samantha, “Boyhood” charts the rocky terrain of childhood like no other film has before. Snapshots of adolescence from road trips and family dinners to birthdays and graduations and all the moments in between become transcendent, set to a soundtrack spanning the years from Coldplay's “Yellow” to Arcade Fire's “Deep Blue.” “Boyhood” is both a nostalgic time capsule of the recent past and an ode to growing up and parenting. It's impossible not to watch Mason and his family without thinking about our own journey.

Land Ho!
Genre: Comedy
Cast: Paul Eenhoorn and Earl Lynn Nelson
Director: Martha Stephens and Aaron Katz
Rated: R

A pair of 60-something ex-brothers-in-law sets off on a road trip through Iceland, hoping to reclaim their youth.

Their picaresque adventures, from trendy Reykjavík to rugged outback, are a throwback to classic bawdy road comedies as well as a candid exploration of aging, loneliness, and friendship.
