It is a truth universally acknowledged that a Jane Austen novel in possession of added gore will be a surefire best-seller. That's the conclusion reached by publishers since the success of "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies," an unlikely literary sensation created by adding dollops of "ultraviolent zombie mayhem" to Austen's classic love story. "Zombies" -- billed as 85% Austen's original text and 15% brand-new blood and guts -- has become a best-seller since it was published this year, with 750,000 copies in print.

Lionsgate has renewed its movie and home entertainment agreement with its most prolific supplier, filmmaker and actor Tyler Perry. The new contract keeps Perry, whose films such as "Madea Goes to Jail" and "Why Did I Get Married?" are hugely popular with African American women, in business with the Santa Monica studio for three more years. Over the last six years, Lionsgate has released 10 movies produced by Perry. Since his debut in 2005 with "Diary of a Mad Black Woman," Perry's films have grossed an average of $52 million domestically, although they typically take in very little overseas.

Everyone agrees on this much: it was a hellacious night in the 41st Precinct, back in the early '70s, with the phones ringing off the hook. Lt. Lloyd Gittens, a precinct icon, grabbed one of the calls. Within seconds, he abruptly ended the conversation: "I don't have time for that. This is Fort Apache." Gittens hung up, and a legend was launched. The 41st Precinct, tucked away on a garbage-strewn block in the crumbling South Bronx, had a new identity.

He is not donning shoulder pads and a helmet, but Phil Fonua is happy to be back on the football field, just the same. The former prep All-American nose guard who suffered a life-threatening ruptured brain aneurysm last year has become an assistant coach at Hawthorne High. In charge of linebackers and running backs on the freshman team, Fonua, 18, is directing players not much younger than he.

They seem like unlikely techno heroes. Ken Jordan and Scott Kirkland grew up in working-class Las Vegas and as teenagers put on their own dance parties wherever they could, including the local tavern. "The only way you could get people to come dance in Las Vegas was if you sold beer," says Kirkland, 26. Beer bashes were a long way from the designer drug-fueled world of all-night raving that entranced England and the U.S. West Coast by the turn of the decade.

Could it be that Miramax Films--the feisty independent company behind such controversial adult-oriented movies as "The Crying Game," "sex, lies, and videotape," "Truth or Dare" and "Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down!"--is shedding its edgy image and going PG? Well, not exactly. But in a move to augment their already successful specialty film business, company co-founding brothers Bob and Harvey Weinstein decided this week to launch Miramax Family Films, which debuts Sept.
