Just in time for Christmas!



I hope that they do a better job than the TV Show DVDs. Mine apparently has LFE channel problems. When Serenity blasts off while in space, I never hear the "grumble" of the engines.



...priced at around $29.98
I think that was last weekend's B.O. take.

ok, is the $29.98 SRP means this will be like SHaun of the Dead and stay overpriced for a few months? SotD was freaking $20 "on sale" first week.

In this case I hope they don't use the poster for the cover art... Talk about lame. My preference would be something based on the graphic that just has the symbol w/ Serenity written across it (I can't find a site that'll link me link to it off hand) but I doubt they'll do that...

Edit: this one

I didn't know that Serenity featured a huge subterranean rave scene like in Matrix Reloaded I miss the theatrical poster now.

Yeesh, breakout the string and porkchops.


Hope the DVD sells well enough for at least a DTV sequel.

hahaha! WTF is up with this cover??? Terrible. Summer has been photoshopped beyond recognition. Ah well. I'll still pick it up on release day.

That cover art is really quite ugly, and I am not too happy with the menus either. The menus aren't as bad as the cover art though. Bad. Bad bad bad. BAD.

Still, I am getting this, because the movie is awesome. I can't wait.

Looks like this might be the one that gets me into making custom covers

I have to say the menus don't bother me as much as the cover though...

fyi. whedon's thing for the tv show was that 'there was no sound in space,' which i believe is based in fact, so there was no engine noise. they changed it for the movie i believe for the big space battle, and kept it like that for the entire movie for continuity

Well, I'm obviously all over this DVD on release day... but that cover art is pretty terrible.

I still don't remember sound in space in the movie. All the sound effects in the movie I thought were in atmosphere. Maybe not it was a month ago.
