Apparently, some people made disparaging remarks about the new "Serenity" poster on the official board, so our Captain took it upon himself to set 'em straight, as follows:

"Morning. Just looking at the thread of people complaining about the
poster. I like it. I love it. Honestly, I don't know where some of these
folks get their ideas about what's good or bad. Or the "expert opinions"
they get to confirm their stand. I love it.
Be well, all. 73 days till Serenity. I can't wait! Everybody go see it and
have a great time! Except the people that don't like the poster. That'll
teach Universal for putting up a poster that is too conventional, too
Hollywood, too revolting, and doesn't tell you anything about the movie
except for who's in it, that it's sci fi, action, and it has something to
do with a target, an assasin, a rebel, a fugitive, a code, spaceships,
guns, and a firefly. Curse them for leaving you in the dark!
heh.
oooo, good one, Nate. Burn. But maybe you should have left this one alone.
Don't you have a policy about biting your internet tongue?
Yeah, but I had to go for the funny.
But you know how some of these internet types can get. You know they're
gonna whinge about this. Holy soap box, Batman.
Did you hear me? I said, "...go for the funny."
Funny like throwing gas on a fire funny.
Yeah. Heh. THAT kind of funny. Heh."

Can you link up the poster in question? I'm looking, but I can't seem to find it.

Sounds like this poster:

clearly I loved as did many others, so is it an official poster?

May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.


Wonder why some Browncoats have a problem w/ the poster. I like the poster. I like the tag line. I like everything about it quite honestly.

People are people though, and they will nitpick. Got to expect that. Guess the captain just walked in to a bad thread.

Hope he doesn't allow this to keep him from popping in from time to time.

Well, you might remember a sci-fi movie just a few years back based on a 'Fox' TV show also used the tagline "Fight The Future" so there's a bit of deja vu.

But always nice to hear from one of our BDH's (although I wish they'd comment a bit more on the nice things we say rather than feeling obliged to respond to criticism).

Oh, and I hope there's one fan poster in particular that he saw. I'm sure he'd approve.

This was put up in the Blue Sun Room a little while ago. The faces are deliberately moderately badly done as it was supposed to have been made by a marketing exec who are lazy and inattentive to detail. I did do a better version but figured that the exec wouldn't have bothered.

That has got to be, without a doubt, the most freaky thing I've seen today.
Is it even more disturbing that the River mock-up looks almost appropriate to me?!

Important people don't do field work.


The only thing I don't like about the poster is that I don't have it! I love it! I love the movie, and having seen it, I think the poster is more than fairly indicative of the film. I want it, I want it, I want it...In a big, huge glass frame, hanging in my stairway so that everyone will have to ask me what it is...And, I can tell them that its from the best sci-fi film ever made!

That's what I think of the poster. If it was a chick, I would line up so it could reject me like all the other chicks...I'm not kidding, I love that poster!

That's kinda sad. Didn't Nathan see all the threads about loving this poster? I guess there's not much he could contribute to those except, "hey, I love it too." But it sucks to hear from him in a negative way.

Julia

Edit: I just checked out the post at the SB, and the response was actually very good-humored, which I guess is how Nathan's post was intended. I would like to hear more from him though. You know, on the SB, in my personal mailbox, on the phone...

America loves a winner!


I happen to dig the poster. It's a bit different than I'd would have figured..was expecting more of a Serenity logo feel to it.

I think that was the point. You see, the Serentity logo really does resonate for us, but we're already going to the movie!(multiple times).

The poster is there to sell it to everyone else.

I think the poster looks pretty good - lets face it, the fans are onboard already yet we've still got to pull in as many of the masses as we can.

Poster like that looks all Hollywood and professional - I'd like to think it'll attract attention but I guess only time will tell. That and the ratings :D

I LOVE the poster.
Very atmospheric. Very moody. Kinda dark and even a little dangerous.
And it looks like it takes...no...prisoners.

72 days and counting...

Hmm, I hope he didn't get confused on the Jayune Serenity poster comment. I really do like the poster, I can only hope for a Jayne to go along w/ the River poster...(b/c they're my fav characters of the show)

I agree the poster has a dark feel to it, but I don't like it. Maybe because all the browns are missing and that seems to be the overpowering color with everything Firefly, but really I think it's just the WORST picture of River I've ever seen. After staring at it for a while it still doesn't look like her. Maybe it's that Nathon and Summer have the exact same facial expression. As Austin Powers would say, "She does look slightly man-ish."

It's a good poster, I just don't think it captures the Firefly/Serenity vibe.

One would think that in this life
Where no two snowflakes are alike
One would have a brilliant rhyme
For each and every bit of time.
