for people who can't bothered to click on a link here's what it says...

SFX poll result sends Serenity DVD rocketing up the charts!

Our "what's the best SF film ever?" poll has been getting coverage all over the shop. Yesterday, you may have read about it in The Sun. Or The Guardian. Or heard it being talked about on Radio One. All bleedin' day.

For the benefit of those who missed all the kerfuffle... according to our online poll, the best SF film ever made is officially: Serenity. Not Star Wars. Wowzers.

Anyhow, the ripples in this particular pond just keep on, er, a-rippling. Today we heard from the good people at Amazon.co.uk, who were astonished to find that the Serenity DVD has suddenly leapt into their "Movers and shakers" chart of titles with the biggest day-on-day increases in sales.

Here's the stats: before news of our poll broke like a tsunami upon a flabbergasted nation, Serenity was a humble 144th on Amazon's DVD chart. Twenty-four hours later, it had leapt to 15th place, with an 860% increase in sales.

Which is why, this afternoon, we feel like mutants who's just discovered their special abilities. Frankly, the realisation of the culture-warping power of our influence is starting to frighten us cos, y'know, with great power comes great responsibility, and all that jazz. What should we do next? How about a poll on whether there should be a special 24-hour ITV channel dedicated to Primeval clips featuring Hannah Spearritt in her pants? Who's with me?

Congratulations to everyone.

Fantastic achievement and the timing could not be any better with the SE DVD coming out and some big decisions to be made in September...

I posted under 'dominic ciconte'

I suggest people show some support in the same manner without looking like crazed fans.

This really is a great result for us.

Even if people are complaining about the decision, they are still buying the DVD... Imagine how many new browncoats are opening up their DVD covers right now...

In the UK getting to no.15 is all good & all but that meant Serenity sold a few thousands copies but if it got to no.15 in America it would make a much bigger impact not to say that this won't contribute...oh it will, just remeber when we get our Big Damn Sequel remeber us BRITS who made it happen.

Even though there're already a bunch of threads about the SFX poll, I just realized I'd forgotten to check on the sales figures on the Serenity DVD!

That's really cool new info!

Yes, and they say polls don't matter.

So go now immediately and vote for Firefly at http://richlabonte.net/tvvote/index.html

And then go to the voting thread and download Flyvote. The application. Not the guy.

Unless you've already done so.

Then...well, good.

Sales increase = Total gross increase = Movie makes more of the studio's investment back = sequel.

I know it's more complex than that but more sales is always a good thing. If anything, more sale = more Browncoats, which is always a very shiny thing.
