Firefly - "Serenity" Movie - Joss Whedon’s Australian Screening Introduction

Friday 5 August 2005, by Webmaster


Below find the much-requested speech delivered on behalf of Joss at each of the advanced screenings.

Stay tuned for more announcements regarding advance screenings across the nation (including locations not yet blessed with a shiny screening of their own).


Hi. This is Joss Whedon. If you’re sitting here, you’re about to watch my first ever movie, Serenity... unless you’re facing the other way, in which case i’m not sure why you’re here but you might need to talk to somebody, maybe a professional. But if you’re one of the people actually facing the screen, then let me just say welcome. I created a world — well, I had a lot of help, but this is MY letter so i’m taking the credit — and you’re about to enter it. I hope you like living there as much as I have. Serenity is a very personal work with political resonance and a heartfelt message about the human condition and stuff blowing up. ’Cause let’s face it, nobody cares about that ’human condition’ stuff... in fact if you notice it, try to keep it to yourself. Just tell people about the stuff blowing up, so they’ll see the movie too. Thanks!

The fact is, i’m very proud of this movie and everyone in it. I’m excited to show you what we’ve done. And the best way I can do that is to shut up already. Enjoy.

Joss Whedon.
