The Dark Knight Rises cinematographer Wally Pfister said last week “I thought The Avengers was an appalling film. They’d shoot from some odd angle and I’d think, why is the camera there? Oh, I see, because they spent half a million on the set and they have to show it off. It took me completely out of the movie. I was driven bonkers by that illogical form of storytelling.”
When reached by EW, Joss Whedon responded: “I’m sorry to hear it, I’m a fan.”(X)
The [Firefly] cast reunited this weekend at New York’s Comic Con to preview their Science Channel 10th anniversary special “Browncoats Unite,” which airs Nov. 11.
On the panel, “Firefly” star Nathan Fillion told a room packed with fans, “If we’re dreaming, tell me what you think about this: ‘Firefly’ the animated series.”
After the panel, his “Firefly” co-star Sean Maher told The Post, “I know somebody who is actually trying to get that done, who has approached Joss [Whedon, the creator] about it. He used to work with Guillermo del Toro.”
“This is what I need.
Soup. From a chicken.
A chicken lived and died. And they put it in water and now it’s soup. It does not want anything or fear anything. It only is. It is soup.
It sits in this bowl. This indifferent bowl. It does not want to hold soup nor does it want to be empty. It is simply is. It is concave. And perfect for holding soup.
Its weight rests on the table. Distributed evenly to four legs that press onto the floor, the foundation of this building, which holds all of us… and the table… and the soup.
The building rests on the earth, the soil of this planet.
What planet is this again?
It is all held in place by gravity.
The planet is held in orbit by the gravitational force of the sun.
The beating heart at the center of a perfectly balanced solar system.
One of several systems that make up our galaxy.
Which is just one tiny part of an unimaginable cosmic expanse.
All of Creation supports this bowl.
Which supports the soup, which supports me.
It gives me life.
What do I with the life it gives me?”—How Derrial Book found God in a bowl of soup (as told in Serenity: The Shepherd’s Tale)
