WEEK AHEAD: Jessica Alba (Super) Powers Into Theaters
Tim Story, Jessica Alba, Michael Chiklis, Chris Evans and Loan Gruffudd

Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer


What: Jessica Alba attempts to harness her box office-busting superpowers along with Ioan Gruffudd, Chris Evans and Michael Chiklis in the second film based on the comic book.
When: In theaters June 15
Highlights: It's a showdown between the Four and villain Silver Surfer (voiced by Laurence Fishburne), head honcho of bad boys Galactus and a returning Dr. Doom (Julian McMahon). Will the fearless foursome restore order to the world? Or will we simply be content to watch eye candy like Evans and Alba on the big screen?

AFI's 100 Years ... 100 Movies


What: Halle Berry, Harrison Ford and Morgan Freeman count down the top 100 movies of all time.
When: June 20, 8 p.m. ET on CBS
Highlights: What made the cut? Count on classics like Citizen Kane and Gone With the Wind, but newer flicks like The Matrix and Brokeback Mountain have a fighting shot: They were included on this year's ballot, too.

Mandy Moore

Wild Hope


What: Mandy Moore's anticipated new album of original songs.
When: In stores June 19
Highlights: Unlike her last album, 2003's Coverage, this time Moore is writing (well, co-writing) her own tunes. And just how wild does Moore sound? According to PEOPLE's critic Chuck Arnold, the disc comprises a batch of "breezy folk pop." But, hey, we weren't expecting Metallica-like riffs anyway.

Flight of the Conchords


What: A new HBO comedy series by wacko New Zealand duo Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie.
When: June 17, 10:30 p.m. ET on HBO
Highlights: Enjoy zany folk-pop interludes with your comedy? Well, dig this Kiwi import – a deadpan batch of skits about everything from street crime to romancing the ladies.
