This weekend, two new movie releases will try to dethrone ‘Harry Potter’ as king of the box office – one about a patriotic super-hero, the other about two friends who think they can actually make casual sex work.

The first is ‘Captain America: The First Avenger.’ In the film, Chris Evans plays Steve Rogers, a scrawny guy who volunteers for a top-secret scientific experiment that transforms his body and enables him to join the US Army in its crusade against the Nazis.

If that doesn’t float your boat, there’s always ‘Friends With Benefits,’ the R-rated romantic-comedy in which Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis add a little spice (read: sex) to their friendship. Can they make it work? Probably not, but at least they’ll have fun trying.

Below, get a rundown of the biggest movies playing in theaters this weekend.
