★★★ “The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water” (PG): Antonio Banderas hams it up as the live-action pirate villain who steals the secret formula for Krabby Patties, the signature “greasy little sandwich” of the SpongeBob world.

★★★ “McFarland, USA” (PG): The latest Kevin Costner sports drama is based on a true story about an underdog high-school cross-country running team. The cast includes Carlos Pratts, Romero Rodriguez and Costner as the team’s coach.
★½ “Focus” (R): Will Smith and Margot Robbie play the whole who’s-conning-who game in this film about a career con man who crosses paths with a young woman wanting to learn his trade.
