Joss Whedon: 'Avengers,' 'Buffy,' 'Firefly,' and more! Video
This week on the CNET Tech Review: Comic-Con mainstay Joss Whedon talks "The Avengers" and the future of Buffy; how to get more out of OS X Lion; and the best--and perhaps only--smartphone for Nextel that's worth buying.
A passenger with a deadly secret. Six rebels on the run. An assassin in pursuit. When the renegade crew of Serenity agrees to hide a fugitive on their ship, they find themselves in an action-packed battle between the relentless military might of a totalitarian regime who will destroy anything - or anyone - to get the girl back and the bloodthirsty creatures who roam the uncharted areas of space. But, the greatest danger of all may be on their ship. From the mind of Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel) comes a new edge-of-your-seat adventure loaded with explosive battles, gripping special effects and fantastic new worlds! Bonus Features on the DVD include: an introduction by Joss Whedon, over 20 minutes of deleted scenes and outtakes, Re-Lighting The Firefly (the story of how a television show gained enough of a cult following to become a major feature film), Feature Commentary with Writer/Director Joss Whedon, and much more!
