Summer Glau and Nathan Fillion attented the Dutch Premiere of Serenity that was held on 6th September 2005 at the Pathe de Munt theater in Amsterdam. It was a prescreening, as part of the worldwide publicity campaign.
The Gallery has been updated with photos of Summer Glau and Nathan Fillion at the event. Here's a sample and head over to the Gallery to watch the rest of the pictures.
Here's a report from the event by Caroline van Oosten de Boer:
Serenity premiere in Amsterdam. Nathan and Summer attended the low key premiere of Serenity on Tuesday (9/6), welcomed by 50 (mainly) Dutch Browncoats and a straggle of Dutch press, 'celebs' and UIP associates.
The film won't go into general release in this country until November. Interest seems low and the release has been moved around quite a bit to satisfy theatre owners. Sci-fi & pop culture aren't popular here and tv series in general aren't considered art or taken seriously at all. (I was thinking, instead of saying 'by the maker of Buffy and Angel, that new poster should have had 'by the writer of Speed and Toy Story' on it. That would attract an audience here.) Celeb and press turn out was pretty low.
Summer signed quite a few things for the fans on the red carpet, while Nathan seemed to be more in a hurry. They were fashionably late as it was.
The two of them were introduced to the crowd by a man who didn't introduce himself. He then did a brief interview with Summer and Nathan in which he rather exaggerated Dutch interest in the phenomenon, as well as the size of the fanbase. So he must have been a UIP employee.
Summer admitted to being very shy as she stumbled over UIP-guy's first question (explain the success, yadda yadda yadda) and Nathan clowned around quite a bit, which lightened things up nicely. Nathan said Joss was a bit like a father figure, but also a goofy younger brother that you can make fun of. Near the end of the interview, Nathan pretended to spoil part of the film. You'll see in the pictures where he's got his hand clasped over his mouth.
An intro by Joss was played before the film in which Joss praised the fans for being inclusive and understanding that his work belonged to everybody, and just not the happy few. It's not a cult, it's a movement. Which was funny because I had been talking to a young man waiting in line at the red carpet who would have preferred the new poster to appeal to 'people like us' rather than 'the masses'.
Then we watched Serenity. It was my second time and I thoroughly enjoyed it again. Was moved and excited in all the right places once more.
Summer and Nathan had sat down to watch the film with us, but they left about two third into the film.
Audience response was a little muted at the start - a lot of the Browncoats had already seen the film. I noticed the quick jokes, the language quirks didn't seem to evoke a reaction (the translation was good but lacked a lot of the funny) unless they were given space (a few beats, so it sank in). It could be people didn't understand, or it could be everybody was wrapped up in the film. At the end of the film, quite a few people applauded. Wash drew the most laughs, I think, and Jayne a good second.
I didn't linger long, went straight back to process my photos, so I may well have missed a meet 'n' greet in the lobby, I don't know. Which I'm fine with - it's not really my thing.

'Serenity: Leaves On The Wind' Covers Featuring River Tam
Comic book publisher Dark Horse Comics announced back in September 2013 they would release a new continuation to Joss Whedon's space-western Firefly and its follow-up film, Serenity. The six issue mini-series titled "Serenity: Leaves on the Wind", written by Zack Whedon and illustrated by Georges Jeanty, picks up 9 months after Serenity‘s conclusion.
Take a look at various cover art of "Serenity: Leaves on the Wind" featuring Summer Glau's character River Tam, who is now the pilot of the Serenity ship in this continuation of the world of Serenity in comic book form.
Serenity: Leaves On The Wind #1 - Cover by Georges Jeanty
Malcolm Reynolds's crew shook the 'verse to its core when they laid bare the crimes against humanity undertaken by their sinister government the Alliance.
Always outlaws, Mal, a very pregnant Zoe, new pilot River Tam, and the other surviving crew members are in greater danger than ever. Meanwhile, everyone is asking the same question . . .
Serenity: Leaves on the Wind #1 arrives in stores January 29th, 2014. More informations at Dark Horse.
Serenity: Leaves On The Wind #3 - Cover by Dan Dos Santos
Serenity is found! The crew, including Jayne and a certain bounty hunter, get themselves ready to restock and retrieve when River wakes from her self-induced sleep and gives Mal a mandate . . . which will eventually—hopefully—maybe—lead to Zoe’s rescue!
The cover of "Serenity: Leaves on the Wind #3" featuring River Tam is as beautifully strange and mysterious as River herself. Here's what cover artist has to say about the process of creating it: "Every commission starts with the manuscript. After reading through Zack Whedon's rough draft of 'Serenity: Leaves on the Wind #3', I began to sketch some rough ideas for the cover. Dark Horse Editor-in-Chief, Scott Allie, requested I depict the opening dream sequence with River Tam, so I started there."

Inside the Box Screening at The Barcelona Contemporary Culture Centre
Inside the Box will be shown on Saturday 21 December at The Barcelona Contemporary Culture Centre (CCCB) in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain. The screening is scheduled at 20:00pm at the CCCB Auditorium and admission is free. Spanish fans of the suspense-drama short-film starring Summer Glau, Regina King and Wilson Bethel are all invited. This screening has a special meaning for Inside the Box's director David Martin Porras, who went to Pompeu Fabra University in Barcelona and in his own words "spent so many evenings in this wonderful culture centre".
The Barcelona Contemporary Culture Centre (CCCB) is a multidisciplinary institution that can be defined as a centre for urban culture. The activities it organises include exhibitions, musical programmes, dance, courses, conferences, urban itineraries, etc. The centre is dedicated to the city and everything relating to it, and also promotes artistic creation based on new technologies and languages, research into exhibition formats, and debate.
For the record, Inside the Box won the "Best Spanish Short Film" award at the International Film Festival of Valladolid on October 2013 and won another prize at the International Short Film Festival 'Almería en Corto' on December 2013.
The short will continue its film festivals tour, and hopefully all fans will be able to see it when it will be available by VOD and DVD at a date to be determined.
Of course we will keep you updated on the dates and locations of the screenings, so stay tuned!

KNIGHTS OF BADASSDOM follows three best friends (Peter Dinklage, Steve Zahn and Ryan Kwanten) and dedicated LARPers (Live Action Role Players) as they take to the woods to reenact a dungeons and dragons-like scenario fresh out of the mythical Middle Ages. Trouble arises after they unwittingly conjure up some serious evil in the form of a blood-lusting Succubus, from the pits of hell. Fantasy and reality collide on the Fields of Evermore in an all-out epic battle of make-believe wizards, demons and assorted mythical creatures.
Their courage and friendship is put to the test as they attempt to vanquish the evil they have summoned. Will the group prove to simply be foam sword-wielding LARPers, or true “Knights of Badassdom?”
