So, I’m planning to review Serenity for the Reason site, but dragged my feet long enough that I’ll be trying to squeeze in with the bloggers rather than ordinary press; mayhap I’ll see some of you there. Here’s the synopsis the PR folk are sending out to bloggers, in case you’ve been living under a rock:
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.
Assuming I make it in through the throngs, look for the review over at Reason later this week.
