A place to unwind and spend some time yakking.

Is there hope for Serenity?

I checked the weekend’s box office results, and while Serenity was in the top 12 for highest earnings this past weekend, it dropped seven places and settled into 9th place, bringing in only $4,925,000.

There is some silver lining in this Firefly storm cloud. Serenity banked more money in two weeks than A History of Violence made in three, even with Viggo Mortensen’s star power; it’s made $4,000,000 more than bikini-clad Jessica Alba’s Into the Blue, and almost $9,000,000 than Disney’s golf movie The Greatest Game Ever Played (wasn’t it George Carlin that said that watching golf on TV is about as exciting as watching flies f*ck?).
