(CBS News) Lollapalooza, the annual three day festival of alt rock, heavy metal and hip hop, takes place this weekend in Chicago's Grant Park.

The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Jack White, Florence + The Machnie and Black Sabbath headline this year's event, which features dozens of other performers including the Black Keys, At the Drive-In, J. Cole, Frank Ocean and B.o.B.

Coming on the heels of last week's Newport Folk Festival, the Chicago gathering highlights an otherwise quiet mid-summer week in entertainment.

The only notable album set for release this week is rapper Rick Ross' fifth studio release "God Forgives, I Don't," coming out Tuesday, but leaked online a few days early.

Television this week is all about the 2012 Olympics, which run through Aug. 12 in London. The Summer Games, which opened with a dazzling ceremony Friday, are being broadcast in prime time on NBC.

Opening in theaters Friday are the thrillers "Total Recall" with Colin Farrell and Jessica Biel and "Assassin's Bullet" with Christian Slater and Donald Sutherland; the relationship drama "360" with Rachel Weisz and Anthony Hopkins; and the romance "Celeste and Jesse Forever" with Rashida Jones and Andy Samberg.

Also in theaters this weekend is "Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days," based on a series of popular children's books.

Because this week is the 50th anniversary of Marilyn Monroe's death, three of her movies - "the Seven Year Itch," "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes" and " How to Marry a Millionaire" are coming out Tuesday on DVD and Blu-Ray.

Also released that day are Kevin Costner's popular miniseries "Hatfields and McCoys" and the original "Total Recall" with Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Among the books being published this week is a new Dean Koontz thriller "Odd Apocalypse," coming out Tuesday.
