Nathan Fillion's "Waitress" trailer at Also in high definition.

There've been several posts about the movie, but I don't think the trailer's been posted.

Oh, it looks really wonderful!
I think I have to see that :)
My computer is having its usual argument with, grrr. Has anybody YouTubed this? :-(
If they get in a fight tell it to keep moving its feet and work the body billz, Apple hates that. Apparently it hasn't done enough work on its core. Ahem ;).

That actually looks pretty funny. For some reason "I don't care if she's a pie genius, I wouldn't trade places" made me laugh out loud. "Pie genius" is, well, genius ;).
"Pie Genius" could have been a good name for the movie.
Yeah, then they could sell it as "A Beautiful Mind. With pie".

In fact, i'd be amazed if that wasn't the initial pitch.
Pie, yo! Thanks for the advice, Saje, that must have done the trick, because I finally brought Apple to its knees, or shook it to its core, or peeled it a new one, or, ah hell, I got the trailer to play. And it ROCKED, of course. Good gods, is our Captain going to have a killer April or what! ;-)
Ahem, billz. You should be advised that in some little parts of the internet 'verse, this April is known as Natepril. ;-)
The movie could be fun, but the look of those pies - ughh. Not remotely edible. Definitely needed a better food stylist on set.
Oh, wow, Nathan is well-suited as a romantic leading man. Finally Hollywood cottons to the truth! Beautiful.
I don't care if I have to drive the hour to go somewhere that shows more than just two different movies, this looks worth the effort. Sweet and funny, good combo.

Yep, people doubted Newton too. Such is the lot of the genius, 'twas ever thus.

In years to come her pies will become legend, memorialised in statues, big, fluffy statues. With a firm yet crumbly base.

Now, where did I put those meds again ...
A top crust can cover a lot. And she did decide against the whole banana.

Anyhow, we probably saw, you know, the most conceptual pies. There could be others with a stronger appearance/taste focus. Or not.
Does anybody know if you can BBQ pies?
Ok here's me watching the trailer and all I can think of is "Mal's getting laid, wee, Mal's getting laid". It's either too much Firefly or I've had one drink too many. Possibly both.
The whole "that's on the bad food list - what kind of doctor are you" made me do a spit take. I can't wait to see this movie. (And, for the record, I personally would not flambe a pie, but you could. Flambe-ing is only to cook off alcohol and caramelize sugars - no reason why you couldn't do this on a pie)

I do! No.

Drat. I was thinking Nathan could BBQ some pies on some cooking shows. Maybe he could try to BBQ some pies and that would be funny to show how it doesn't work.

Anonymous1, just getting Nathan on any talk show doing anything would be the big victory! I mean, the Captain would kick such serious a** what with the funny and the rock star mode, Waitress and Drive would become giant hits and that guy would finally be a Big Damn Star. :-)

And then with that kind of fame, and the Special Edition of Serenity on the way, Universal would think, hmmm, maybe we could think about asking Joss if he would be interested -- no! No! NO! Must. Stop. Fanboy. Fantasy. Before heart is. Broken. Again. /fantasizing in public ;-)
It looks so funny and sweet, thanks for posting it. Can;t wait for that to come out.

And yeah, pie genius is a great line. Though I love the bit at the end "I can't have coffee, it's on the bad food list you gave me, what kind of a doctor are you?"

Here is a little something to help you work on that shiny fantasy come true.
