It’s another exciting week for the arts! From movies to books, there are tons of promising new entries for people looking to indulge themselves in something original, while some old classics also return briefly to the scene, like James Cameron’s Avatar and Steven Spielberg’s ET: The Extra Terrestrial

Meanwhile, bookworms are in for a treat with many promising thrillers and mysteries coming out this week! For the more raunchy crowd, Steve-O’s quasi-autobiography recounting the wild stories from the Jackass series is likely to be a very fun read.
