a week of serenity

Filed under: Blogging — kees @ 11:23 pm

Looks like I’ve been given a chance to screen the final cut of Serenity on Monday! In exchange, I’m posting the synopsis they’re using:

Joss Whedon, the OscarĀ® – and Emmy – nominated writer/director
responsible for the worldwide television phenomena of BUFFY THE VAMPIRE,
ANGEL and FIREFLY, now applies his trademark compassion and wit to a
small band of galactic outcasts 500 years in the future in his feature
film directorial debut, Serenity. The film centers around Captain
Malcolm Reynolds, a hardened veteran (on the losing side) of a galactic
civil war, who now ekes out a living pulling off small crimes and
transport-for-hire aboard his ship, Serenity. He leads a small, eclectic
crew who are the closest thing he has left to family — squabbling,
insubordinate and undyingly loyal.

I think a much better synopsis would simply be:

Oh my god! Go see this movie! Don’t walk, run!

To help blogviewers write up stuff on Serenity, we’ve been given access to a TON of images too. There’s some great stuff in here. Half of it is in .sit files, the other half in giant .psd files. Here’s some cool snaps of Summer I’d never seen before, and an early logo design. Nothing beats my backgrounds [1920×1200, 1600×1200], though.

I’m going to have to dig through all this stuff. There are movie posters for bus shelters, LCD panel screens, Dark Horse comics logos, all kinds of stuff. Even mechanical drawings, I think. Too bad there aren’t any native .sit expanders for Linux that handle the modern .sit formats. I’d love to see what’s in the mechanicals directory.

On Saturday, I’m headed to the PDX Browncoat’s Firefly Episodes Benefit. Monday is the Serenity screening, and then Friday the full release! Yay! :)
