A Fall preview of everything entertainment

It's the fall, but in the coming months a plethora of movies, music, plays, books and games will be springing up to catch your attention. With the kids back in school, this season is usually the best time for the culture industry to start churning out a wealth of products. After all, what better way to get people to fork over the money they accumulated over the summer working as an usher at the nearest Silvercity?

Now, onto the preview!

Britney Spears: TBA
(Nov. 25)

Britney's back - and she probably won't ever go away. Spears's fourth album follows the success of her 2001 Britney, which sold 4.2 million copies in the United States. The pop princess turned sultry star reportedly worked with Sean "P. Diddy" Combs, Moby, The Neptunes and Fred Durst. Spears recently unveiled her new song, "Me Against the Music," at the NFL season kick-off concert in Washington, D.C. With insightful lyrics like "all the people in the club/grab a partner/take it down," she'll likely appeal to another slew of adolescent girls and clubbers alike.

SCOTT FESCHUK: Searching For Michael Jackson's Nose and Other Preoccupations of Our Celebrity-Mad Culture
(Sep. 27)

It's about time this off-the-wall National Post columnist is gracing the world with his unique (and often angry) sense of humour for more than a couple hundred words a day. Feschuk's book will likely offer his incredibly humourous slants on celebrity culture, coupled with criticism of all things Céline Dion and of course, Michael Jackson. On the flip side, Feschuk will hopefully offer some insightful comments on "our celebrity-mad culture" in a way only he can deliver. What more could you ask for?

(Oct. 10)

Uma Thurman plays a former assassin who wakes up from a coma five years after being brutally attacked and left for dead by her husband Bill (David Carradine) and her fellow assassins. The film has been chopped into two volumes because Miramax feared a three-hour runtime for an intensely gory homage to Japanese samurai flicks may not be accepted by a mass North American audience. The downside to all this is if the first one generates little interest, then number two is sure to flop.

Eminem protégé Obie Trice's new album, Cheers, drops later this month. If Eminem vouches for it, then it will sell. It can't hurt that Cheers' list of cameos includes the obvious Eminem and Dre, as well as D12, Timbaland, Jay-Z and the Doggfather himself, Snoop Dogg.

Eminem is having three golden tickets placed in three random CD's across the country, with the recipients of the Wonka-esque prize earning a free ride to Detroit to sit in the studio while he records his new album.
