Serenity that’s who.
Top of the box office in the Uk, and in Ireland. So go us.
In other news was listening to the radio on my way to work last week and heard this song that I just loved. Haven’t heard it since, but I was still humming it this evening. So took a peek online and found it. Isn’t the internet wonderful?
The song is I wish I was a punk rocker (with flowers in my hair) and the singer is Sandi Thom, and it is just very listenable, imo. You can watch a clip of the vid-jo here
I was disappointed to see its steep drop-off over here in the states from the first week. I attended a matinee Saturday, my third viewing, and the theatre was packed so I was hoping for higher numbers.
To be honest Carl I never expected it to do very well. Obviously I hoped. But its sci-fi. It has no big names, and plenty of people who may have heard of Joss Whedon because of Buffy probably dismiss him as "that vampire guy"
But we're going to focus on the positive here :)

Saw it, loved it. The character of River really kicked ass,
<spoiler>though I'm a tad disappointed that we'll never find out the Shepherd's story now.
Also, it would've worked out better for the plot if the female sidekick had died, instead of the pilot. She really doesn't add much, does she? At least *he* was funny…</spoiler>
So tell us… how many times have you seen it?! =)
Only 4 ::mrgreen: The advance screening way back when. and three times since the previews on the 6th.
And tonight makes your fifth and my fourth. And thanks to Poppa having gigs at the weekend, I probably won't get to have the fifth with him. :cry:
Yup, 5th time. But I need to go, cause I lost one of my ticket stubs and so need one more to send off for the chance to possibly win a free gift. They only take 'em from the 7th see. And two of mine are from before then.
I saw Serenity whilst in Canada. It was the first day of its Canadian release and I think about 30 people had taken the day off work to see it on its opening day.
They laughed at in jokes that I didn't get and I laughed and parts they didn't find funny because they didn't posess the more sophiciated (sick) british sense of humour. So we were kinda even on that score.
I thought of you whilst watching but didn't want to post anything about it till now in case you pestered me to tell you about it before you'd been to see it.
Good film but you can tell the director is more used to the TV format as its TV'esk. Still worth a sequel and I hope he does well with it.
Plenty of people have mentioned that it more tv-esque. But I prefer well-done tv anyways so that isn't a bad point, imo.
Whedon himself will do well. He is lined up to direct Wonder Woman, and has also recently signed up with Universal to wirte/direct a new film called Goners.
But the question about a sequel remains.
