Interstellar‘s Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway are together again for Serenity, a “sexy, stylized thriller” from Steven Knight (and definitely not a remake of the Joss Whedon movie of the same name). Watch the Serenity trailer below.

It’s easy to forget that when Joss Whedon was hired to direct The Avengers, the decision raised some eyebrows from Hollywood’s elite. Whedon only had one movie to his name at that point, and was far better known for his work in television. But those of us who had seen Firefly, Whedon’s pulpy, ensemble-driven sci-fi western, and Serenity, the film continuation of the story, knew he had the chops to bring Earth’s Mightiest Heroes together.
This year marks the 15th anniversary of the early cancellation of Firefly, and Zoic Studios, the Emmy-winning company that created the show’s visual effects, has created a video tribute to some of the best moments in the franchise. Take a quick flight back to the early 2000s and see the Serenity take flight once more in a brand new shot created specifically for this video. Read More »

Fox brought The X-Files and Prison Break back for more episodes, which might have a few folks wondering if that means Firefly, an admittedly less popular show, could return as well. Creator Joss Whedon‘s sci-fi western only lasted one wonderful season on Fox, but the story continued with the 2005 film, Serenity. Could Malcolm Reynolds (Nathan Fillion) and the remaining crewmembers of the Serenity ever return to star in a second season of Firefly on Fox? Fox Broadcasting President of Entertainment, David Madden, recently commented on the matter, claiming he’s open to more Firefly if Whedon is.
Below, learn why we might or might not see a Firefly reboot.

Any fan of Joss Whedon‘s sci-fi series Firefly will tell you that it’s one of those shows that came to an end far too soon. It only lasted for a single 14-episode season, but that was enough for it to become a cult favorite TV series with a rabid following always hoping for the show to make some kind of comeback. Fans can take solace in the fact that they got a feature film to follow up the show in the form of Serenity, but of course, they still want more.
Sadly, we’re not likely to ever get any new episodes of Firefly or a sequel to Serenity, but maybe artist Stephen Byrne can help keep the fans at bay with his creation of a teaser for The Animated Adventures of Firefly. Watch the fanmade teaser for a Firefly animated series after the jump. Read More »

Yesterday, we ran down the best movies arriving on Netflix in July 2016, but that bounty of new entertainment comes at a cost – a bunch of quality movies and shows are departing the streaming service in the coming weeks and who knows when they’ll return. But I’ve got your back: here are the movies you need to watch before they disappear.

Edgar Wright had one, J.J. Abrams had one, and now Joss Whedon is having one. Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles is hosing a Joss Whedon art show starting opening from 7-10 p.m. September 5 and on display through September 27.
Artists from around the world were given carte blanche to make all kinds of art based on the world of Whedon with the exception of The Avengers, because Gallery 1988 already hosted an Avengers exhibit a few years back. That means Buffy, Angel, Firefly, The Cabin in the Woods, Dr. Horrible, Dollhouse and more are all on the table. And the artists delivered in spades.
Below, we’ve got a huge sample of work from the Joss Whedon art show. Check it out. Read More »
By now, you’d think fans of Joss Whedon’s TV show Firefly would come to peace with the fact it’s over. Yes, the show was unceremoniously cancelled in 2002, but Whedon made an unlikely film version for the fans three years later. Since then, almost all its stars have gone on to bigger and better things. And Whedon is now delivering his pop-culture savvy, whip-smart dialogue on a much larger scale. Yet the fans, collectively known as Browncoats, still hold out hope for some kind of return.
With quotes like the following, who can blame them? Though there is nothing at any stage of development, Firefly producer-writer Tim Minear recently said he “would never foreclose the possibility” of a comeback, and suggested a “limited series” on Netflix or something could work. Read More »

The successful Kickstarter campaign for the Veronica Mars movie sequel raised all sorts of questions, ranging from whether the show was even still relevant to how this might change the future of film. But for diehard TV lovers, the biggest one of all may have been: What other brilliant-but-cancelled shows can we bring back to life using this method?
One property that quickly came to mind was Joss Whedon‘s Firefly, which lasted just 14 episodes on Fox in 2002. The sci-fi Western has already had one big-screen revival: Universal ponied up for the cinematic follow-up Serenity, only to watch it tank at the box office. But Whedon has continually maintained that he’d “love” to do more Firefly. Now Veronica Mars‘ Kickstarter crowdfunding seems to offer a way he can actually make it happen. So is he going to run with it? Hit the jump to see what he said.
