I'd be happy with straight-to-dvd series. I paid $40 for the boxed set, and would have paid more.
Never say Never is definitely the by-word of Hollywood. If "Serenity" can move a few million units, then do it again when they double-dip with a unrated edition (you KNOW is it coming, Joss has mentioned it and heck, even dogs like "Club Dread", and "Not Another Teen movie" are getting directors cut nowadays), I would not be surprised to see a 30-ish million dollar movie come out.
The comics sold like mad (I'm trying to get one of each cover, got all but River...), and I suspect the books, if helmed by someone like Brust who has a modicum of writing talent and supervised by Wheedon/other Firefly writers, could really be good. The franchise has a RPG out, and I think a collectable card series. There are dolls (ahem, action figures!), and if a decent Firefly model comes out, I'm all over it (Reaverized with that dorsal cannon, naturally).
You are aware that Brust has already written a Serenity book? We're just waiting on Pocket Books to pick an author, but man I am rooting for Brust.
Here's the thread on the BC forum: http://browncoats.serenitymovie.com/serenity/index.html?fuseaction=forum.viewtopic&t=23710
Brust is posting under "Barquiel".
Wheldon felt they gave it decent marketing. I saw just as many ads for it as I did for any other movie that came out at the same time. EW did several stories on the series and the movie. Face it, not enough people liked either. Sci-fi movies and books have a hard enough time crossing over to mainstream audiences. Additionally, I knew plenty of sci-fi fans that just plain didn't like Firefly or Serenity.
Re: EW Article
You guys find the Easter Egg on the DVD yet?
Highlight Play (Main Menu) and press left on your menu button. A little arrow on the right side of the screen should light up. Hit Enter.
Now if I can only get that song outta my head...
Resurrecting this thread...
Firefly, The Official Companion: Volume One is on the shelves.
Among the various goodies inside, are details and closeups of the guns they used in the series, with comments from the guys that made the actual props. Mal's pistol for example was a Taurus Model 85.
Check it out!
Also, the Done The Impossible! DVD is out.
The SciFi Channel is running a Firefly marathon tomorrow (Sept 18), from about 8am to about 7pm, depending on your time zone. Eleven of the fourteen episodes, hopefully in the correct order.
Anyone catch Muse's video "Knights of Cydonia" it's on On Demand?OnDemand>MusicChoice>Aletrnative... looks very much like a hong kong spaghetti western with ray guns and robots with nods to Firefly... oh and it has laser guns.
I'd noticed that Serenity is one of the first HD-DVD titles out there, and the "hangar crash" sequence is being used to demo the plasma screen and surround system at Best Buy.
This outfit now has a replica of Mal's pistol:
$249 is too steep for me. I have no experience with this outfit, so I'm not endorsing or recommending them.
Click "Serenity" and then "Captain Malcolm's pistol".
Just watched that movie again tonight
I still love it
It still cracks me up that the reavers have these incredible spaceship launchers for---spears
I may watch it again tomorrow
The Operative was a great adversary
"I don't murder children!"

Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game
Like on-line yahtzee?
Gun of Serenity
I saw the question asked months ago what was the
cannon that was mounted on Serenity in the movie?
In case anyone is still interested, I found an answer at
imdb.com Internet Movie Data Base:
"The cannon the crew mounts to Serenity is a WW2 German 20mm Flak 38."
I would just like to add, that the sheer page count and repeated thread necromancy of this one Firely post is proof positive:
You can't stop the signal.
And... she can kill you with her brain.
Just what I figured !
Has anyone heard anymore news the firing metal replica of Mal's gun?
No! Tell us more!
You guys are aware that this thread is almost 4 years old, right?
