The 834-835 issue of Entertainment Weekly, published in August 19 2005, has a special "Fall Movie Preview" cover story, including a great article on "Serenity" on page 56.
There's a out of costume photo of Serenity cast which appears to have been taken at the same cabin as the one in a previous issue (see blog post : Serenity Cast in Entertainment weekly Must List 2005
); the article talks about the long, frustrating, often sad journey that Joss and compagny took to get to "Serenity", thanks in large part to the loyal Browncoats.
Reese Whiterspoon is on the cover of this special issue, featuring all the buzz on 145 new films.
