(CBS) It may be impossible for another movie to equal the massive opening of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2" but that doesn't mean Marvel and Paramount won't try with "Captain America: The First Avenger."

Pictures: Summer movies 2011

The movie - about a U.S. soldier infused with super powers - stars "Fantastic Four" veteran Chris Evans and master thespians Hugo Weaving and Tommy Lee Jones. It's the latest Marvel picture this year after the successful "Thor" and "X-Men: First Class."

If for some reason "Captain America" doesn't do it for you, check out the Mila Kunis-Justin Timberlake romantic comedy "Friends with Benefits" about - you guessed it - friends who decide to use each other for sex. That's the second movie about that topic this year after "No Strings Attached" with Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher.

You could also just see "Harry Potter" again.

On television, everyone's favorite shouting chef returns Monday night, July 18, at 8 p.m. Gordon Ramsay and "Hell's Kitchen" premiere with a ninth season of the show. Don't make the mistake of sweating in the soup, whatever you do.

"Entourage" premieres Sunday, July 24, on HBO. If you're tired of hearing some iterations of the phrases, "Vince, you gotta do it," and "Forget it, I'm not gonna do it" over and over, don't worry. This season - the show's eighth - is also its last. Expect big things...or maybe a lot of the same.

On DVD and Blu-Ray, the Bradley Cooper-starring "Limitless" comes out Tuesday, July 19. The movie opened as the no. 1 movie in the U.S. in its first weekend. Will it rule your home theater? In other Blu-Ray releases, "Amelie," starring Audrey Tautou, gets a U.S. release on the format for the first time.

Portugal. The Man makes its major label debut Tuesday, July 19, with its sixth album, "In the Mountain in the Cloud." The rock band, with its use of strings, pop soundscapes and layers of vocals has a sound that's all its own. (Listen to a track here at Celebrity Circuit.)

There are also new records coming Tuesday from They Might Be Giants, 3 Doors Down and a re-release of Rush's 1991 album "Roll the Bones."

If you just want some peace and quiet and a place to read, we can't help you with the peace and quiet, but we can recommend John Grisham's "The Confession." The legal thriller comes out in paperback Tuesday, July 19.

Those of you who prefer memoir may want to take a look at Molly Birnbaum's "Season to Taste: How I Lost My Sense of Smell and Found My Way." Birnbaum was an aspiring chef who lost her sense of smell in an accident - and that's just the beginning.
