Sean Maher talks Serenity fandom. In this Spacecast.com video clip, he says "I'm still not used to the fan reaction". Bless. Most of the trailer is shown in this clip, so if you're trying to remain totally unspoiled stay away.

Someone mentioned that on the browncoats board in passing, thanks for linking the clip! It rocks my world. And Sean seems so sweet ;.;
I saw the Serenity trailer attached to Land of the Dead last weekend. It looked good on the big screen so a good chance to see it on the big screen is if you go see Land of the Dead. It was the first trailer tht played. And don't worry about seeing a crappy movie, Land of the Dead was awesome. Plenty of gore. One of the better zombie movies.
Sean Maher is an absolute doll. I get that the fan reaction could be a little overwhelming, if flattering. At the last screening I was checking us all out and yeah, we can be a bit, er, stimulating! Spacecast is Canada's sci fi station, right? It's awesome that they're promoting Firefly/Serenity in this way.

A little - okay, more than a little - off-topic: to those who loved Firefly and haven't written a glowing review of it at Amazon (US), if you have a moment, now would be a good time to write one. There's a rather unfortunate and potentially persuasive review that now appears as the newest review on the front page of the Firefly listing. It'd be nice to push this guy's review off the main page so that all the newbies who are apparently checking out Firefly DVDs in droves these days don't read this. A little obsessive fan of me to suggest this, I know (see above, re: Sean Maher, heh), but these days good publicity for Firefly/Serenity seems extraordinarily important. If I weren't already a Firefly/Joss fan, I probably wouldn't know that Serenity was a gleam in anyone's eye. I wish Universal would start heavily promoting the movie.


To add to SpikeBad's comment above, I saw Batman Begins yesterday in large part to see the Serenity trailer on the big screen. It was not shown. The Dukes of Hazzard movie was. I was extraordinarily annoyed. That Christian Bale, though. I rather like him. Great "supporting" cast, too.
"Spacecast is Canada's sci fi station, right? It's awesome that they're promoting Firefly/Serenity in this way."

The channel is actually called "Space", not "spacecast", it's just when they started up the domain name space.com was already taken. Also yes, Space is Canada's sci-fi channel. They have been pretty big promoters of Firefly as it's done quite well on their channel. That small video clip aired 5 or 6 times during the day in their little news clips that they run between shows. Meanwhile Space continues to air repeats of Firefly on Thursday nights at 11 pm.
Viva Canada and the Space Channel! Another reason to admire Canada (and I do, quite heavily.) Let's hope that the Sci Fi channel is up to par with their upcoming showing of Firefly. Maybe Sci Fi will include little interview clips, too.

Sean Maher's teeth are very white.
I was thinking that clip would be make a wonderful trailer in its own right. Maybe make more in that vein highlighting each of the other cast members? Hmmm.

Continuing off-topic-ness, I checked out the Amazon review, and it is a little galling, but 3 out of 5 stars is hardly a "bad" review, now. No worries, it's well on the way down the page and will be off the front in a day or so. Heh.
offtopic I know, but wanted to toss in my opinion that 'Land of the Dead' is at best a matinee. Its not sure whether it wants to be a zombie flick or a social commentary flick, then it becomes uncertain which social aspects it wants to comment on (social strata, terrorism, etc.) and it gets bogged down in its own confusion.

quick thought:
zombies shamble across bridge, one of the patrol crew takes aim and the main character stops him.
'No, they are just looking for somewhere to go, just like us'

No, they are looking for brains and internal organs to chew on like bloody bubblegum. Spare me, please, Mr. Romero.

Also click that the review was NOT helpfull. Just sayin' :)
Sean's teeth are not only very white but his smile lit up the back of the theatre, I swear! And I am excited to think that our excitement kept him awake! As long as it wasn't in a scary way!
I posted a favorable, from-the-heart assessment of Firefly on Amazon that is, for a while, at least, the lead review after the spotlight reviews.
I posted too soon (or too late...)...there is another, also positive review that is now the lead item.
Lioness, I'm wildly jealous that you can testify from personal experience as to the whiteness of Sean's teeth. I doubt your collective Toronto excitement kept Sean up in a scary way. He didn't look scared in the interview.

I regret making it sound like I wanted to effectively silence the three-star reviewer on Amazon. His review was hardly of the "Joss sux; Firefly sux" variety and was actually rather thoughtful, even if I don't agree with it. That said, it's always nice to read a well-written, favorable review of Firefly, which yours was, CiV.
