‘Firefly’: Nathan Fillion Reveals the Key Scene Joss Whedon Never Got to Make

20 September 2016 4:51 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Firefly” tends to rank pretty high in the gone-too-soon TV canon. A sci-fi series created by Joss Whedon and canceled by Fox after its first season, which ran for 14 episodes between late 2002 and early 2003, the show has since become a cult classic. To hear star Nathan Fillion tell it, one of Whedon’s ideas that never materialized was especially compelling.

“Joss once described an opening scene to me where we are looking at a planet with a ring around it and as we come in close, we see the ring is actually rocks and pieces of ships and old derelicts. It’s a junk ring. It’s the junkyards — we mentioned it in ‘Firefly’ one time. We see little bits and we’re jumping slowly from bit to bit and as we get closer »

Science fiction and the Western are two genres that have been fused together countless times before – reworked and fine-tuned to create such beloved hits as Joss Whedon’s Serenity, Star Wars and er, Cowboys & Aliens. But with Westworld, HBO’s dark and brooding new series that’s fast approaching its October premiere, Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy’s freshman drama brings together the past and future in every sense of the word.

Early reviews are championing Westworld as a triumphant success, too, with our own Mitchel Broussard praising HBO’s imminent series as “an intense, intellectual, and genuinely insane work of sci-fi.” If that wasn’t enough to pique your interest, we now have two new promos along with a featurette to pour over, with the latter designed specifically to shed some much-needed light on the actual premise of Westworld. »

17 August 2016 9:22 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Though Joss Whedon’s sci-fi series “Firefly” was cancelled after one season almost 14 years ago, its cult fandom rages on well into this decade.

Case in point: Artist and fan Stephen Byrne recently created a short animated tribute to the series entitled “The Animated Adventures of Firefly Teaser,” featuring the entire Serenity crew. It’s garnered over 250,000 views and earned the seal of approval from star Nathan Fillion. Watch the teaser below, as well as a production diary created two years prior.

Stream This: Mustang, The Big Short, Hello Dolly, The Painted Veil

In the effort to stay au courant we're going to try to do "new to streaming" weekly, alternating between Netflix and Amazon Prime sometimes, big lists, sometimes highlights. This will also give us a chance to link to previous coverage of the old films that are "new" again via the power of the internet. But first a last chance notice...

Last Chance Netflix (Expires July 16th)

-No.

Serenity

I've been curious to watch Serenity (and Firefly for that matter) again to see if you can easily chart Joss Whedon's growth from self-created warm-up to Studio-hire mega-success in The Avengers. He was always good at selling team dynamics, though. That was clear from the earliest episodes of Buffy. We previously covered Serenity in Season 3 of Hit Me With Your Best Shot.

Looks Like Nathan Fillion Is Playing 'Spoiler' In Marvel's Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2

25 April 2016 9:57 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

It would seem James Gunn has drafted his old pal Nathan Fillion (Serenity, Slither) in for an appearance in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, playing none other than Simon Williams, aka Wonder Man. In the comics Williams started out as a villain before putting his wicked ways behind him and joining The Avengers. He later retired to pursue and acting career, which is referenced by these mock movie posters that were sent to Comicbook.com. Whether Fillion actually shows up onscreen as Williams in the movie or not remains to be seen of course, as there's every chance these posters will just be used as background easter eggs. Still, pretty cool I'm sure you'll agree. Set to the all-new sonic backdrop of Awesome Mixtape #2, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues the team’s adventures as they unravel the mystery of Peter Quill’s true parentage.

John Ostrander: Radical TV Surgery

24 April 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

It was announced this week that Stana Katic, who plays Detective Kate Beckett on the ABC series Castle, was not going to be asked back If the series is renewed for a ninth season. The reason cited was cost cutting which also accounts for the shortened 13 episode season planned If the show comes back.

The premise of the show is that mystery writer Richard Castle, played by Nathan Fillion, worms his way onto the NYPD and helps the detectives solve actual murder mysteries rather than the fictional ones he creates. Central to the series has also been his relationship with Beckett; he started by annoying her but, after as many complications and delays that the writers could conceive, they fell in love with each other, acknowledged they were in love, and finally married.

Which makes the loss of Katic/Beckett difficult to understand for me. The show may have been titled Castle, »

Alien: Resurrection - Joss Whedon's original endings

15 February 2016 8:24 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Joss Whedon originally had some different endings for Alien: Resurrection. Ryan looks at how Whedon's ideas were changed for the final cut.

In the beginning, it was supposed to be Dan Hedaya who got sucked out into space. His character, General Martin Perez, was originally set to exit Alien: Resurrection in spectacularly bloody fashion - his entire body ejected, limb by limb, through a whole in a tennis ball-sized hole in the space ship, Auriga.

Effects company Amalgamated Dynamics, Inc, spent several weeks in 1996 solving the problem of having a body pulled apart realistically by the vacuum of space. Test footage released by Adi shows the painstaking process of researching and testing practical means of creating Hedaya's death scene, which would have concluded with his character's screaming head stripped of its skin until only a gaping skull remained.

The results were almost comically grotesque and almost mesmerising to watch - so mesmerising, »

The March 7 episode of ABC’s Castle is titled “The G.D.S.,” but we’ve got a better name for it: “Déjà Vu.” Or “Have We Met Before?” Or “A River Runs Through It.” Or “Serenity, Now!” (I’ve got tons more, Fyi.)

As TVLine reported last month, the Los Angeles-set installment reunites Nathan Fillion with onetime Firefly co-star Summer Glau, who guest-stars as a provocative P.I. that competes with Rick to solve a deadly mystery.
