Uncanceled Showdown Final 4: After thrashing 'Firefly' can 'Jericho' be stopped?

2 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

We're down to the Final 4 of HitFix's Uncanceled Showdown and we have to admit... We didn't see this coming. Sure, we knew that "Jericho" fans were well-trained when it comes to mobilizing to send nuts, but like many of you, we just assumed that when it comes to mobilizing to skew online polls, nobody could top Joss Whedon fans in general and Browncoats in specific. Ooops.  The quarterfinals showdown between "Jericho" and "Firefly" figured to be competitive, but we just guessed "Firefly" fans would come through in the end. Heck, even when "Jericho" fans came out hot in the first day of voting, it still felt inevitable that "Firefly" would get a big last-minute push to victory. Nope. "Jericho" didn't just beat "Firefly." It destroyed "Firefly," picking up over 70 percent of the vote in our most popular showdown to date.  That leaves "Jericho" going up against HBO's "Deadwood" in one semifinal. »

‘Castle’ Spin-Off ‘Derrick Storm’ Planned

21 August 2014 10:45 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

In what is possibly a first, ABC are developing a drama based on a drama written by a character in a drama. Castle starring Nathan Fillion has been a long-running success for the network, but the idea that fuelled its premise is now being utilized for new pilot Derrick Storm. CIA expendable-of-choice Storm was the creation of Fillion’s Richard Castle, an author who killed him off, resulting in the writers’ block that led to him shadowing the NYPD on cases over six seasons (a seventh is on the way).

Actual books were published such as A Raging Storm and, er, A Brewing Storm. Let’s hope this doesn’t become a Sh*t Storm when scribe Gregory Poirier fleshes out the derring-do into script form. MilMar Pictures (a fusion of Castle creator Andrew Marlowe and co-exec/wife Terri Edda Miller) will produce for ABC Studios. Though not described as »

Why Guardians of the Galaxy is like Firefly and Serenity

20 August 2014 3:28 PM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

Marvel's latest movie, Guardians of the Galaxy, is currently a big hit at the box office. While it's in keeping with Marvel's approach of making a film that's true to its comic book roots while being very accessible to a wide audience, entertaining on many different levels, Marvel is not the only framework to look at the film in the context of.

In fact, Guardians of the Galaxy could be considered to be a bit like Firefly / Serenity with aliens. And a walking, talking tree. And a raccoon with a rocket launcher.

(For the purposes of this article, we will count Firefly and Serenity as one story, featuring the same world and main characters, though of course one could analyse the nuances further.)

For one thing, Guardians of the Galaxy and Firefly / Serenity both have a similar lived-in, used universe sensibility. While there's spectacle, and it's very visually shiny, the »

25 Greatest Characters Across The Entire Whedonverse

16 August 2014 11:41 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Film-goers and kids growing up today know Joss Whedon as the director behind one of the biggest comic book blockbuster franchises to date: The Avengers. Without question, Whedon has taken his extensive knowledge of the world of comic books (he has written a number of them, including Fray, set in the world of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and also created The Astonishing X-Men for Marvel) and translated it to major success on the big screen.

What came before, however, is what made Joss Whedon a pop culture legend and cult superstar: Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Angel. Firefly.

Those three shows had an impact on pop culture like no other, and none more so than Buffy the Vampire Slayer, an unlikely cult hit for the W.B. (Warner Brothers) network in the 90s/early 2000s (it would move to Upn in its final seasons). Originally something of a failed movie that »

Read Nathan Fillion's Fantastic Foreword to Joss Whedon's Biography

6 August 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Nathan Fillion and Joss Whedon have a very long working relationship that started when Fillion played the legendary Captain Malcolm Reynolds on FIrefly. Since then they've worked on several projects together, with Fillion even playing the "Little Bad" in season 7 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. They have such a strong friendship that Fillion wrote a wonderful foreword to Whedon's biography. The foreword was published by USA Today, and I've included part of it below:

My generation, we were kind of raised on the super-cool, "I can handle anything" with a gun in his hand hero. Any situation you throw at him, he can handle it — with catchphrases. It was very cool.

But Joss Whedon's version of a hero doesn't always win. He loses more than he wins, and when he wins, the victories are tiny, but he takes 'em. "That's a victory! I call that a victory!" It's a tiny victory — he takes it, »

‘Joss Whedon: Geek King of the Universe’ Book Review

6 August 2014 7:45 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Written by Amy Pascale | Published by Aurum Press Ltd | Format: Hardcover, 448pp

There are certain people who are happy to take the mantle “King of the Geeks” and I normally cringe that the very thought of them accepting it, but for me there is one man who would.  Joss Whedon is arguably one of the most important people in this generation to provide the so-called “geeks” with their life blood, he created Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Firefly and he even helped make Toy Story the movie we all love.  In Joss Whedon: Geek King of the Universe by Amy Pascale we find out just how he became the idol he is today.

When the book starts off with an introduction by Nathan Fillion that it’s going to be good.  Readers will know Fillion worked with Whedon on not only Buffy but mostly on Firefly which he is more famous for. »

Read Nathan Fillion's Wonderful Foreward To Joss Whedon's Biography

5 August 2014 4:52 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

While most people know of the relationship between Joss Whedon and Nathan Fillion as being a Firefly - and, by extension, Serenity - thing, there really is so much more than that to their collaboration. Even before Fillion became Captain Malcolm Reynolds, he was working with Whedon on Season 7 episodes of Buffy The Vampire Slayer, and the years since their sci-fi show was cancelled they've found time to work together on projects like Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog and Much Ado About Nothing. They have the kind of friendship where if one were to have a biography written about them, the other would write the introduction. And, believe it or not, that's exactly what has happened. We recently brought you the heartfelt email exchange between Tom Hiddleston and Joss Whedon that was published in the new book about writer/director/showrunner, and now USA Today has published -in full - the »

New Guardians Of The Galaxy Movie Received Mostly Positive Reviews From Major Critics

Walt Disney Pictures and Marvel Studios released their new super hero/action film, "Guardians Of The Galaxy," into theaters today, August 1st, and the top movie critics have turned in their reviews. And it seems to have resonated well with most of them, getting an overall 77 score out of a possible 100 across 44 reviews at meteacritic.com. The film stars: Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Djimon Hounsou, Benicio del Toro, John C. Reilly, Glenn Close, Gregg Henry, Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel. We've posted blurbs from a couple of the critics, below. Elizabeth Weitzman from the New York Daily News, gave it a perfect 100 score! She stated: " To see an expensive, big-studio movie freed from creative constraints and directorial cynicism is always a rare and wondrous experience. In a season of bloated indulgence, it’s also fair to call it a marvel." Michael O'Sullivan over at the Washington Post, »

New Joss Whedon Biography Gives Details on the Creation of Firefly

1 August 2014 6:45 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Amy Pascale’s biography of Joss Whedon hits shelves today, and with it comes new insight into our Geek Overlord. We’ve already seen Tom Hiddleston’s love letter to Whedon, which came from the book, now io9 has an except of Chapter 17, about the creation of Firefly. It goes in depth about his inspiration for the show, casting, writing Chinese slang, and why he named the show after the ship. He even throws shade at Doctor Who. You should probably read the whole thing (Especially because I’m not going spoil the reason he named the show Firefly. Its reveal is too good in the context of the excerpt.), but here are a few highlights.

Whedon wanted the series to be about “how politics affect people personally. And the personal politics are the only politics that really interest me. I'm not going to make this big, didactic polemic—I'm just going to say, »

Comic-Con 2014 Cosplay Music Video

31 July 2014 1:03 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

With only a handful of exceptions, many of the panels at San Diego Comic-Con this year were a little underwhelming. On the bright side, the outdoor festivities and cosplay were on point as usual. The good folks at Sneaky Zebra were there to capture all the costumed craziness and gender-bending greatness. Look for cameos from panel moderator extraordinaire Chris Hardwick, David Yost and Walter Jones (the original Blue and Black Power Rangers), director Freddie Wong, actor Sam Witwer, and more.

In celebration of recently hitting 100 videos and over 100,000 subscribers on YouTube, Sneaky Zebra is also giving away a couple Sdcc exclusive Firefly action figures. To enter to win, tweet @The_SneakyZebra ideas for who you like to see Nathan Fillion and Adam Baldwin cosplay.

Scott Davis reviews Joss Whedon: Geek King of the Universe by Amy Pascale

Over the last two decades (give or take) Joss Whedon has gone from script “puncher-upper” through developing his own films and television shows, to the pronounced G”eek of the Universe”, the title of the biography by Amy Pascale. Taking a look at Whedon’s whole career, the ups, downs, successes and heartbreaks, this is certainly an expansive look, as Pascale delves deep through his early days through to his new life in the Marvel Universe. At a whopping 400 pages, it certainly looks like a long slog, but Pascale’s book is a great read, insightful, witty and informative, as well as being fascinating and absorbing.

Throughout the book, there are many great stories about all the projects that Whedon has left his stamp on, all of which are suitably, and comprehensively covered here. It’s »

The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies teaser trailer analysis

29 July 2014 3:47 PM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

The first teaser trailer for the final instalment of the Middle Earth saga, The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies, debuted at Comic-Con, and now Warner Bros have made it available online.

While the trailer contains some nice shots on a visual level, very much in keeping with the Lord of the Rings trilogy, about 80% of the trailer's awesome is provided by the song. Pippin's mournful song from Return of the King, that plays intercut with the doomed mission that Faramir leads on his father Denethor's orders, accompanies this trailer to great effect, lending it a dignified, elegiac beauty. It's a sad song, but sad is just happy for deep people...

According to Wikipedia (which has spoilers, in case you somehow haven't seen the Lord of the Rings trilogy yet), the song is called Edge of Night, with a melody composed by Billy Boyd himself, with lyrics adapted from Tolkien's »

‘Firefly’ Cast Reuniting for Online Game

26 July 2014 9:35 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Ever since Joss Whedon’s short-live sci-fi/western, Firefly, was cancelled in 2003, there has been an outcry from fans (or Browncoats) of the cult series to bring it back. Thanks to the extremely vocal fanbase, who kept watching and applauding the show even after cancellation, the cast and crew reunited to produce Serenity in 2005, a film meant to conclude the stories of the characters. Since Serenity debuted, fans have still tried to revive the series, including one instance three years ago when they attempted to help Firefly star Nathan Fillion buy the rights to the show with hopes of a reboot.

Though that effort was squashed, hope of another revival circulated after fellow cult TV series, Veronica Mars, received unprecedented funds from fans on Kickstarter for a followup movie. However, Whedon had already signed his 3-year deal with Marvel ...

Is Ms. Marvel Going To Be In Avengers 2?

25 July 2014 8:19 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Diversity is a growing topic in the world of comics. Archie Andrews recently died to protect his gay best friend. Thor's mighty hammer is being handed down to a newly minted super heroine. And the shield of Captain America will be carried by a beloved black character. On the movie front, Joss Whedon's been credited as leading the charge, fighting to keep Black Widow in The Avengers after she was poorly introduced in Iron Man 2. With Avengers: Age of Ultron, the creator of such female-empowering properties as Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Firefly has revealed he has four female leads lined up for his next Marvel outing. Do the math. This could mean an exciting new addition to the Marvel movie universe. Perhaps Ms. Marvel herself? Hey U Guys spoke with Joss Whedon at the Guardians of the Galaxy premiere in London, where the writer-director of Avengers: Age of Ultron »
