Default Serenity

Apple is hosting the SERENITY Trailer!



Wow and everyone is so excited about the new Star Wars? Why, I am excited about SERENITY, this looks amazing!!! WOW! I can't wait!!!

In case you don't know, SERENITY is the movie based on Joss Whedon's short lived Science fiction/Western that was so popular on DVD that Universal picked it up and made this film, and if it does well they plan on doing 2 more films, and then maybe we can get the series back. FIREFLY is my favorite Science Fiction series of all time (I know that is close to blasphemy on this site, but I love the characters, the darkness and the universe), and I can't believe hoe good this trailer looks!

WOW! That is a lot different than the trailer Joss showed at comic-con last July. I wish they hadn't pushed the opening date back.
I think I'll have to watch the dvd's again just to be able to get through the wait till it opens.

Firefly may only live in movies or until the FOX contract expires or is bought out. Believe it says Firefox can't be shopped to another network, but a movie(s) is allowed. So everything depends on Firefly fans and the movie to fill the theatre seats and make it a hit. Then maybe more movies will be made down the line.

Universal did acquired the rights to "Firefly" from 20th Century Fox Television, where Whedon's Mutant Enemy Inc. production company has a television deal, but it is unknown if the TV original contract was included or if an arraignment was agreed to.

September 30th is a good time for Serenity. It avoids competing with all the summer blockbusters but yet fills the void for people that want a new escapist, adventure film to watch during the fall/winter months.

Zoic's stuff looks FANTASTIC. Lovely in fact. Even chopped to bits (to do the trailer) the writing retains it's crispness.

This is going to ROCK!!!!!!!!!! September seems too far away!

The FX do look great. But I have to say, Whedon really should have gotten rid of the whole old west dialect thing. I suspect that will be a laugh out loud trailer moment in the theaters.

NO!!!! You go wash your mouth out with soap!!!! More than the swearing in Chinese, the rhythm of that older dialect is part of the magic of the firefly.

Yea, i totally agree. I am so dieing to see this, and the trailer looks amazing. I called my dad to have him watch it because I gave him the DVD's a couple of years back, and he loves it, and gave it to all of his friends.

They are all sold out, which is good news. There isn't one near me anyway.

Looks pretty good. Is this a Firefly tie-in?

Before I get pummeled about the head and shoulders, I need to say that Firefly was gone before I knew about it. From what I read, I would definitely have liked it.

yes this is a Firefly continuation in movie form. You should either buy the DVD's of Firefly or rent them because it is really worth checking out.

It's "only 129mb"...lol...*BUT* you need QT v.7, which is only available for Mac OS X, to play it. If you have broadband, the download speed is good at about 330.

I'm looking for a spare ticket to buy for the Serenity screening this Thursday in Vancouver. I've read the FAQ, and cannot find any info on starting a new thread.

If anyone has a ticket they'd be willing to sell me, please r(asap)svp to:

Thanx ahead,

I have a friend who has seen 3 of the screenings, and each was a slightly different version of the film, though enjoyed them all. he did say it might not be as good for non fans, as you really don't know who Inara is, but he did say it is really good. I can't wait. BROWNCOATS UNITE!

Along with BSG I would say this is the best Sci-Fi to hit TV in years. Firefly is one of the best Sci-Fi shows of all time I would argue.
