Updated Serenity One - Sheet
Just got word of a couple new updates for the upcoming
Joss Whedon film Serenity.
A few days ago we posted the first poster for Serenityhere
and now have an updated version that looks as if Universal wasn't feeling
the extra space on the left side of the frame.
Other than the new movie poster, Gina Torres tells what it is like to be
part of the crew of Serenity and how it is to work with Joss Whedon.
Serenity Poster and Torres
To the right is the updated version of the Serenity
poster. Some of you may who have already seen the first poster posted may
not find this to be too exciting as it looks oddly familiar.
Besides the poster, Blackfilm
has also alerted us that they were able to sit down with Gina Torres and
discuss her role in Serenity. One of my favorite questions asked
to Gina Torres was whether or not she was surprised that they would actually
make a feature film on a show that was cancelled only after 11 episodes.
She obviously answered yes, which is not saying too much. Check out a snippet
from the interview below:
It's very rare that a cancelled show
makes it to the big screen, especially a show that only lasted 11 episodes.
Were you surprised when you heard that Joss was making a film out of the
Gina: Absolutely. I wasn't surprised that Joss could pull
it off. He could pretty do anything that he puts his mind into; but it was
an extraordinary thing for me and everyone involved to have a studio do
the first film.
One of the things that's an interesting
of the show/film is the western aspect of it. What do you make of it?
Gina: I thought it was great. I thought it was so smart.
It's a really wonderful departure from a sci-fi world that we have come
to be comfortable with and familiar with; typically speaking, the Star Trek
world, the Stargate world, where there's sort of a cleanliness and neatness
about it regardless of whatever trouble they may get into at some particular
point. The future has both. The future has both gritty and savage and clean
and "techno-hip". I think it's a very realistic point of view.
