Cruise, Blunt, Louis-Dreyfus, Diggs, Barkley, Earnhardt, De Niro. No, it's not awards season. It's the next seven days in TV and film.

Edge of Tomorrow hits theaters today. Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt kick some serious alien tendril and the action-packed sci-fi thriller is getting great reviews - "A crafty, clever, stylish science-fiction action ad­ven­ture," says the Washington Post.  My advice? Go see it.

Prefer the crippling truth of reality over sci-fi? Watch tonight's episode of Vice, which goes inside Iran's heroin epidemic and also looks at how global warming is reigniting the Cold War.

Sunday is always a busy day for TV lovers, and this Sunday is no different. In the Veep season finale (back-to-back episodes!) it's crunch time for Selina and her team.

For NASCAR lovers (all 75 million of you), TNT analyst Charles Barkley and NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. are facing off on the track during the "Countdown to Green" lead-up to TNT's coverage of the Sprint Cup Series from Pocono Raceway.

And of course Anthony Bourdain is back with a new episode of CNN's Parts Unknown. Last week he was in Thailand, this Sunday he's in Brazil.

On Monday, HBO Documentaries and actor Robert De Niro, Jr. remember the life and career of painter Robert De Niro, Sr.

Also on Monday, LAPD Captain Sharon Raydor (Mary McDonnell) is back in a new season of TNT's Major Crimes. And it's the series premiere of TNT's new drama Murder in the First. Get to know Taye Diggs' character, Terry English, in the video below.

Guilty Pleasure Alert! Pretty Little Liars makes its summer debut on June 10. Need a refresher? Watch the Season 4 recap below.
