(CBS) Jon Favreau's sci-fi Western "Cowboys & Aliens," based on a popular graphic novel and starring A-list actors Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford, makes its debut at the box office this weekend.

The action movie's debut, one of the highlights in the coming week in entertainment, follows two high-profile releases - the last "Harry Potter" film, which broke all kinds of records, and "Captain America," which had the biggest midnight box office gross so far this year. So the bar for "Cowboys & Aliens" is set pretty high.

Also opening this week is Neil Patrick Harris in "The Smurfs" and Steve Carell and Julianne Moore in "Crazy Stupid Love." (See review here)

And out on DVD will be Jake Gyllenhaal's thriller "Source Code."

On the small screen, "Project Runway" starts a new season on Thursdays on Lifetime and the fishermen head back to port Tuesday on the season finale of Discovery Channel's "Deadliest Catch."

Music fans can look for the release Tuesday of new albums by British R&B singer Joss Stone ("LP1"), former Destiny's Child singer Kelly Rowland ("Here I Am") and country singer Eric Church ("Chief").

Mystery fans wills see the publication Friday of "Dick Francis's Gamble," a novel by Felix Francis, son of the late suspense writer and jockey Dick Francis. Felix who co-wrote some of the later novels before his father's death in February of 2010, is on his own this time and, critics say, following nicely in the footsteps of his father, who penned almost 40 mysteries in his career.

And finally, royalphiles have another high-profile wedding to look forward to. Zara Phillips, the eldest granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth II, will marry rugby star Mike Tyndall on Saturday in Scotland. But unlike the nuptials of her famous cousin Prince William, her wedding won't be aired live on U.S. TV.
