Rise of the Guardians (97 min., PG) This animated feature, adapted from the book by William Joyce, unites the Guardians: Jack Frost, the Tooth Fairy, the Sandman, the Easter Bunny, and Santa Claus, as a kind of traditionalists version of the Justice League.The magical powers wielded in battles get pretty intense, if not downright scary in 3-D. Early in the film, Jack takes a real kid on a harrowing sled ride, invisibly guiding him past cars and other dangers.
