Serenity Coming to a Theater Near You

I've written before about how great the television series Firefly is, how it received a undeserved cancellation, and how it's coming to the big screen soon -- this coming weekend, as a matter of fact. The saga continues in the movie Serenity. I'm lucky enough to be able to attend a screening in the Portland area for bloggers tomorrow night. Here's the synopsis of the film:

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.

"Eclectic" is a good word for it -- the most respected crewmember is a prostitute. Excellent. I'll be posting my spoiler-free review soon after seeing it (unless something more important comes up or Universal is just pulling a huge tease on me).
