Serenity soon?

This could be interesting. I followed a link on Whedonesque to submit my name to get into Tuesday's press screening of Serenity as part of a "Serenity Blogger Bonanza" and just got confirmation of that -- although confirmation does not equal a guaranteed seat, so this is apparently a different kind of confirmation than one would normally associate with that word. Still, its great to see Universal trying new ideas to build the buzz for the movie, and (if we get in) it will be great to see if there have been any changes since the preview screening She Who Must Be Obeyed, AKA The Best Wife Ever, made me attend without her.

I'll post some spoiler-free thoughts after the screening (should we get in); and if you're wondering what the hell this "Serenity" thing I'm talking about is, here's the studio 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.

And if you're intrigued, why not visit the movie's official site?
