It’s the anniversary of the third advance screening of Serenity. It’s Joss Whedon’s birthday. And it’s the focus of two movements among the Browncoat community.
First, Serenity Now/Equality Now is looking to get screenings of Serenity set up in as many theaters as possible, worldwide. Currently more than 23 screenings in four countries on three continents are planned, with (hopefully) more to come. Proceeds will go to Joss’ favorite charity, Equality Now! If you’re interested in getting a screening set up in a city near you — and you know you are — head to cantstoptheserenity.com for important details on contact information.
The other movement is the Serenity Day Campaign where Browncoats are planning to buy copies of Serenity on June 23rd to donate to libraries (and let Universal know we’re still out here, and still want more). Promote, promote, promote!
I have no idea of a sequel is possible (and neither, apparently, does anybody else) but at this point I’d settle for a collector’s edition version of the DVD. I want the extra stuff the other countries got! I want cast commentary and the full blooper reel and the entire 1st table read of the script that we get tantalizing glimpses of in the Australian DVD documentary! And if your library doesn’t have Serenity, don’t you owe it to your community to help out?
