Serenity blogger screening...


For those who have been questioning whether they should wait for a confirmation email on the pre-screening of Serenity to bloggers: I just received my confirmation email.  Others have suggested that there may not be one.  I'm looking forward to it.  While Joss Whedon never quite hit the level of genius displayed by Babylon 5, he's been producing the best thing on television since the main arc of B5 ended.

If you're not familiar with the premise, here's the synopsis:
Joss Whedon, the Oscar® - 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'm not sure how well the things that I like about the series will carry over into the movie, but there's only one way to find out. 

The only thing that makes me nervous is the great big sword and axe prominently featured on some of the promotional graphics.  It looks too Buffyesque to me, however fond I am of swordplay in general; it simply doesn't fit the scenario.  I'll just have to wait and see how they handle that.

I like the graphic below better.
