jump around!

last night before the hitchiker's guide movie, there was an unusually long series of previews, including two that made me want to jump out of my seat and squeal like a little girl.

first there was the new tim burton animated feature, the corpse bride. given that 'the nightmare before christmas' is one of my all-time favorite films, you can imagine. i am very excited about this movie and i can't stand that i have to wait til fall! but it will be so great in the fall. ohboy.

the second Very Exciting Preview was for 'Serenity', the new joss whedon film. you know, JOSSS! it's based on his short-lived tv series, 'firefly', which didn't pick up a big cult audience like buffy, but should have-- man, it was a great series. and it looks like the movie is going to kick ass. it was all i could do to remain seated.

happily, those next to me were excited about these movies, too, so i didn't feel too dumb expressing some of my feelings on the matter :)

i thought it rather odd, though, that they didn't show this preview. i guess burton only gets one slot.

I was excited about The Corpse Bride too. And I thought maybe they'd show a Fantastic Four preview, but alas, no. I can't believe, though, how many previews they show at that theater before the feature. I mean, you can come in 20 minutes late and not miss the start of the movie. But I love previews, so I'm not complaining.

what was funny to me was the collective female squeal when the "serenity" preview started.

ok, so a) your comment won't post right away because i have to approve it first and b) you might get a server error but your comment probably posted anyway and c) previewing doesn't work so i've removed the preview button.
