Green Lantern: Emerald Knights trailer

27 Feb

Take a look at the trailer for the upcoming DC Universe animated film, Green Lantern: Emerald Knights. The format appears to be similar to Batman: Gotham Knight, in the sense that it’s made up of inter-connected stories following six “legendary” Green Lanterns. Fans will finally get to see (or at least hearNathan Fillion — a fan favorite for the lead in the upcoming Green Lantern live-action movie before Ryan Reynolds was awarded the role — play the role of Hal Jordan. Also joining the cast are Kelly Hu (X2), Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men) and Jason Isaacs (Harry Potter series).

Green Lantern: Emerald Knights will be out on DVD & BluRay on 7 June 2011, 10 days before the theatrical release of the Green Lantern feature film.

Fans rally to resurrect Firefly

25 Feb

Nathan Fillion, star of Castle (and, of course, Firefly) said in a recent interview that if he had the money, he would buy the rights to the Firefly TV series and produce it himself.  Seven days later, more than 70,000 fans have rallied behind Help Nathan Buy Firefly.

Firefly fans and online communities from all over the world are joining the movement, including some former Firefly writers.

If you love Firefly and want to see ol’ Serenity fly again, join the community on Facebook and / or Twitter. Or visit the helpnathanbuyfirefly.com website.

Is this a practical joke, just another giant love-in for Firefly fans or a serious fan movement than could bring Joss Whedon’s cult favorite back from the dead? (Let’s not forget a similar movement decades ago resurrected Star Trek, which went on to spawn four new TV series and 11 feature films.)

This may all be a dream … but it’s a nice dream. Aren’t dreams worth fighting for?
