ALSO OPENING

BE KIND REWIND

When a mechanic (Jack Black) becomes caught in an electromagnetic field, his magnetized presence accidentally erases every tape in a video store run by his childhood pal (Mos Def), forcing the duo to star in their own remakes of everything from “King Kong” to “Citizen Kane.” Danny Glover, Mia Farrow and Sigourney Weaver (who’s also in this week’s “Vantage Point”) co-star in this whimsical fable from “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” director Michel Gondry. At multiple locations. (100 minutes.) PG-13; sexual references.

CHARLIE BARTLETT

After he’s kicked out of private school, a lonely rich kid (“Alpha Dog’s” Anton Yelchin) becomes the self-appointed psychiatrist (and prescription-pill supplier) for his new classmates at the public high school. Robert Downey Jr., Hope Davis, Kat Dennings (“Big Momma’s House 2”) and Tyler Hilton (“One Tree Hill”) complete the starring cast of this coming-of-age comedy-drama. At multiple locations. (97 minutes.) R; profanity, drug use, brief nudity, brief violence.

GENGHIS KHAN: TO THE ENDS OF THE EARTH AND SEA

This Japanese epic, which completes a three-weekend series of Asian imports, focuses on the 13th-century founder of the Mongolian empire (Takashi Sorimachi). In Japanese with English subtitles. Through Saturday at Town Square; through Sunday at the Cannery. (140 minutes.) R; violence.

INLAND EMPIRE

CineVegas’ David Lynch mini-fest continues with this mind-bending thriller about a Hollywood star (Lynch fave Laura Dern) filming a steamy Southern drama — only to discover that it’s a remake of a cursed, unfinished Polish film. Jeremy Irons, Justin Theroux and Grace Zabriskie co-star. Saturday and Sunday at Neonopolis. (180 minutes.) R; profanity, violence, sexual situations, nudity.

WITLESS PROTECTION

Larry the Cable Guy returns to git ‘er done once again, bumbling into a criminal conspiracy as a small-town sheriff rushing to rescue a kidnap victim — who turns out to be a protected federal witness. Jenny McCarthy, Ivana Milicevic, Yaphet Kotto, Peter Stormare, Eric Roberts and Joe Mantegna round out the starring cast. At multiple locations. (100 minutes.) PG-13; crude and sex-related humor.
