Pictures of San Francisco Serenity screening, taken with a camera phone, includes shot of flyer signed by Tudyk and Torres.

Oh we NEEED a preview screening in Toronto. If we can only get the studio's attention.
"Hoolah! Universal! Over here!" *Waves frantically*
A thread on this subject on the Serenity Board has people coming out of the woodwork to post but if it will do any good is anyone's guess.

LOL! I hear you, Lioness. I'm sure every fan outside the test screening cities has the same wish. In minds eye, I can see Joss approaching Universal on this matter.

"I'm getting requests that we should have a few more test screenings."
"Sure, Joss. Which cities?"
Joss pulls out the 'list' that rolls out across the office floor.
"Pretty much all of them."

Yeah, these next five months are going to drag by in slow motion.
Hey Lioness, i'm in Toronto too (at work at Spadina and Adelaide right now). When it gets closer to "the date", do you think we could organiza something?
hey thats me in the green shirt! i would have also taken photos, but the screening was pretty security heavy, and there was no way i was going to get asked to leave. they went around before the show and told everybody with laptops and cameras to go take them to their car. they also had the nightvision goggle guy checking during the film.
redfern, we are already organizing! Check out www.canadianbrowncoats.com We were thinking of having a Firefly marathon but haven't yet checked to see how hard it would be to get a licence from Fox. And we have shindigs every month. We have fans who are Whedon fans and some who are just Firefly fans Makes a nice mix.
Thanks Lioness - I'll check it out later - have to get back to back to work (grrrr)
I have some pics up of Joss and Summer at the Vegas screening. Click here if you want to see them.

(Caroline or Simon, let me know if this is the wrong place. I didn't know where else to put them.)
Awesome review, EdDantes. I have been so desperately trying to avoid spoilers I almost didn't read this, but after reading your other posts here at Whedonesque, I knew you were to be trusted. Thanks for telling me exactly what I wanted to hear: "Serenity" is great, the cast is awesome, I'm probably going to be surprised and moved. Thanks.
Great photos EdDantes, if you like you could upload them to our Flickr Group.

You're welcome. And surprised and moved was exactly what I was. And, well....wowed, hehe.

Btw in case anyone wondered, we didn't really smuggle a camera in there. Well, sort of but...uhm...my wife had one in her purse and we weren't sure if they were allowed or not (it was not a digital one). We figured they'd just take it at the door if it wasn't. But then they announced right before going in you'd have to take any cameras with you to your car or something, so she winged it and just let them look at her purse and they looked inside, the camera sticking out...and said 'okay'. They just missed it! Good thing it wasn't a bomb I'd say...

But at the signing we were of course quick to whip it out, hehe..
hey EdDantes ... you posted back in october that you got that chinese Buffy DVD set ,. and I was wondering how you liked that ..

I am all firefly ... have not been able to keep up with buffy and am now looking for an inexpensive way to do so ... this box set seems like a good way ...

any info is much appreciated !
and to add to the actual topic ... sure enough there was no advanced screening here in Fiji ... grrrr .... but in AU .. ah well .. guess i have to wait until september ... I am more excited about Serenity than I am about Ep3 ... i think i will start watchingthe DVD box set again ... NOW

I don't know if you're still reading this, but thos chinese boxes? Well not too great. They're obviously illegal copies and many a disk has episodes missing. S3 for instance misses 'Doppelgangland' and 'Band Candy'. Some links are wrongly connected in the menus and it's just a mess. We bought the official american copies of the seasons now.
Thanks a bazillion eddantes ... you just saved me quite some money ... from earlier experiences I recall that I told myself to never trust chinese box sets ever again ... but they sure are tempting ...

shiney !!!
