This weekend, Joss Whedon announced on the Serenity message boards that the trailer for the film, which continues from where the TV series Firefly left off, will be released on Apple’s trailer site on Tuesday.
Here’s what he had to say
I’m here on the official site, so that can only mean one thing: somebody finally told me my password! (Again.) It probably also means that I have some big-ass announcement or other. Well tops on the announcement list is this: after months of intensive yoga, I can finally touch my toes! (They feel round and bunion-y.)
But there’s more! I’m talkin’ movie news, peeps, so no more drumroll:
Trailer. Serenity. Tuesday. [...]
Yeah, kids, the haps is hap’nin’, and it runs thus: EXCLUSIVELY on Apple movie trailers (and linked through this site as well of course) will be a small, medium, large or FULLSCREEN trailer for Serenity the major motion movie. Yeah, THE trailer. And the following Friday said trailer hits theaters. Which theaters? Until I get confirmation you’ll have to guess, but I’m betting you can.
Now, here’s a word of warning: this trailer ain’t shy. If you’re looking to live totally spoiler-free, know that there’s plenty of key dialogue and images running through this bad boy. It’s pretty tasty, though, and it doesn’t give everything away. But close scrutiny will definitely learn you much of what’s to come. (Anakin TOTALLY goes evil.) It’s a nice piece to while away the time till September, and hopefully should intrigue th’ peeps that don’t have coats of brown.
The only thing more exciting than y’all finally seeing this was showing it to Nathan. Like a schoolboy giggled he.
Joss “You can’t take my toes from me” Whedon.
