So, if/when the Firefly movie hits, what would it be titled? "Firefly" would pretty much have to be left out (as one newsroom co-worker noticed, that was the title of the Kevin Costner 2002 nigh-bomb).

Granted, a lot of it would depend on the script, but in the interest of idle fanboyishness (yes; it's a word. I looked it up.), what are your suggestions? It'd have to be something that'd appeal to the public as well as fans...

Newsroom coworker has his bugs mixed up. Costner 2002 bomb was "Dragonfly."

I'd like to vote for Firefly: The Vindication...if we're voting.

I found the way, by the sound of your voice--so many things to say.

We think "Serenity" but who knows?

It would depend on the plot and the pitch.

Wow, I miss this show so much.

I miss Captain Tight Pants, and Adam Baldwin playing an intelligent role (one of his lame movies was on scifi last weekend, but it was great seeing him in Independence Day) and everybody else.

We need more cast postings!!!

With Angel and Buffy over (angel only for now) and no FF, I'm in genuine Whedon Withdrawal.

Although that's undercutting Minear and the whole fantastic team that Whedon works with.

The magic that they do. You all know.

BRING IT BACK!

One last observation, I was telling my hubby that Keen Eddie is probably going to be cancelled by Fox.

He said, "Wow. That's too bad. It musta been good."

My co-worker SO stands corrected! There was a 1937 musical called "The Firefly," but I can't imagine that'd be a big roadblock to a current-day space western of the same name.

Too bad saying you are all wrong. Firefly is one name only. The movie have no more name than that.

Movies with similar titles:
The Firefly(1937)
Firefly (1989)
Hotaru (2001)
(called "The Firefly" in the US)

I don't see how any of these, even the 2001 one, would conflict with the Firefly movie being called Firefly.

One more vote for this one - it will get attention and start people asking questions that can only be answered by showing them an episode or at least a really cool clip from the series.

Badda-bing! Oh, and the following has always been a part of my posts.




"Appears they've canceled the show and we're still here. What does that make us?"
"Big damn junkies, Sir!"
"Ain't we just."

Don't squat with your spurs on.


Firefly is the obvious choice.

This is pretty hard, if you take it seriously. Here're some humble offerings:

Serenity
Fallen Stars My son's idea.
The Unsurrendered

Now if you don't take it seriously it's a lot easier:

The Outlaw Malcolm Reynolds
Gone to Persephone
Alias Smith and Reynolds
Have Spacesuit will Travel
Malcolm, Juggs, and Washburn (This one might require a cast change, some one has to be Juggs)
Wild, Wild, Space
The Life and Times of Jayne Cobb

Well, other than just plain "Firefly", and I really like "Firefly:Big Damn Movie", may I humbly suggest "Firefly: Suck it, Fox"?

Though I know fox would be making the movie, so that title is out of the question, but I think it has a nice ring to it...

Well, I too like Firefly : Big Damn Movie, and Firefly : Still Flying

I would have to rule Serenity out, cause that's the name of the pilot.

I'm guessing they'll prolly go with something boring, though, like Firefly the movie. :P

Ok, now for my ideas:

Firefly : Once in a Blue Sun
Firefly : Reaverdance
Firefly : [something in chinese]
Firefly : Browncoat boat
Firefly : You can't take the sky from me
Firefly : Let's moon 'em
Firefly : Any job, anywhere

that one's really good.

I didn't think I would post on a "movie name thread" but this one would get my vote.

How about:

The plot could be all about the beginning of the second war for independence and where Serenity and her crew fit in the "second coming".

Thanks Shep, and it would be an added bonus if it was released during a 4th of July weekend.
