Update: Serenity has dropped back out of the top 250…
Serenity has reached the top 250 movies of all time at the International Movie Database, almost a month before it is even released.
The movie has had almost a hundred screenings over the world so far, with the world premiere taking place last week in Edinburgh.
Written and directed by cult legend Joss Whedon, the movie tells the story of Captain Malcolm Reynolds (Nathan Fillion) and his rag-tag crew of scoundrels and honourable thieves. Set six months after the TV show on which it was based (Firefly) ended, the movie revolves around River Tam (Summer Glau) and the evil Alliance attempting to get her back.
The movie has received almost universal critical acclaim so far, and getting into the IMDB’s top 250 before release is an amazing achievement.
