Advance Screening Invite

I wangled an invite to an advance screening of the new film Serenity (trailer here) on Tuesday the 27th, 7:30PM, at the Malco Cordova theater (G'town P'way). Serenity is a science-fiction Western movie based on the television program that ran on Fox a couple of years ago. It's by the same writer-director responsible for Buffy: The Vampire Slayer and Angel, Joss Whedon. It looks to be a fun movie, with some pretty cool action and comedy.

From the good promotional people:
Joss Whedon, the OscarR - and Emmy - nominated writer/director
responsible for the worldwide television phenomena of BUFFY THE VAMPIRE,
ANGEL and FIREFLY, now applies his trademark compassion and wit to a
small band of galactic outcasts 500 years in the future in his feature
film directorial debut, Serenity. The film centers around Captain
Malcolm Reynolds, a hardened veteran (on the losing side) of a galactic
civil war, who now ekes out a living pulling off small crimes and
transport-for-hire aboard his ship, Serenity. He leads a small, eclectic
crew who are the closest thing he has left to family -squabbling,
insubordinate and undyingly loyal.
I'll be going with Conservative Zone Mark, who is a big Firefly fan. I have a spare invite to go with us. It's only available to a Memphis-area blogger and you must agree to write up and post about the movie by the next day. We're intended to be part of a media campaign.

If you are interested, email me and I'll give you the rest of the details.

BINGBINGBING! We have a winner! AlphaPatriot was the first to respond and he will be attending this swank, private, elite, high tone affair. The rest of you may grovel in your unworthiness.
