I've been doing a google news search for "Firefly" and for "Serenity" on a daily basis now for the last few days. It seems like some news source has been printing something nearly every day. Wicked cool press...

This is from the second article...

Quote:

(Last) October, when Universal's co-president of marketing, Eddie Egan, booked a routine rough-cut preview in L.A.'s San Fernando Valley, he was amazed by the explosive response from the research-screening recruits who were clearly rabid "Firefly" fans. He wanted to know just how they had learned about the screening.

It turned out that one fan had identified the movie and tipped off her entire "Firefly" community (known as "browncoats") with one Internet post. Some of them had driven from Arizona and Seattle, Egan says. Universal, deciding that it had something bigger than it thought, pushed the action adventure off of its spring lineup and into the fall.



Is this the official reasoning for delaying the movie? err... did we know about this?

the movie is not the Series. Only the facts have been changed, to irritate the innocent; the names of the actors and characters remain the same

Absolutely, positively, first I've ever heard of it.
