Serenity

So, when will it be safe to talk spoilers, anyway?

The colors were more vibrant, the music was a lot better, the gunshots rang clearer, the space battles were less murky. The dialog was punched up in a couple of spots, and some needed exposition was added in a place.

The theatre was between half and two-thirds full when the movie started, at 8pm on a Saturday. I'm not sure how that bodes for the movie.

It was definitely more than half full.
It was the big theater. And I think the other big theater was also Serenity?

Spoil away, just be sure to say so in the lj-cut text ;)

I still found the color a bit muddy, actually, though I really only noticed when I looked at Kaylee.

Color correction, music addition and timing, and sound mixing are the things that happen late in post-production, so it makes sense that those would be the things that improved most. I'm curious where the exposition was added.

Well we had a nearly sold out show at 8pm on Friday here in Minneapolis. I'm going to see it again this afternoon. I'm such a dork.

Trowa and I had just left the 5:00 p.m. showing when you passed us on Tremont St. :-} I guess it was about the same level of full as the one you saw. Hmm. But most people I know who were planning to see it did go on opening night, and it's certainly possible that some nerdy people *cough*us*cough* will see it more than once. I wonder what what the movie would have to gross in the opening weekend to count as a strong showing.

What was the added exposition?

Changes from the preview
I was surprised that they didn't include a scene from the Battle of Serenity Valley -- it's become a stable scene of the show, and they often use it for background and exposition. Talking with people this past weekend, apparently they did have such a scene -- an entirely new scene, in fact -- in the preview, but it was cut from the release.

I suppose that someday we'll see it on a DVD release...

Anything else interesting cut/added for the final release?
