Serenity

Continuity mistake: When the cast are at the Miranda colony and discover that everyone is dead, there is a rotating shot of River as she realises what happened. Prior to this there is a brief closeup shot of the rest of the cast as they turn to face her. Jayne turns to his right, but in the following rotating shot of River he has turned from his left. (01:16:30)

THGhost

Continuity mistake: While Zoe determines the location of Miranda, there are two shots of Jayne with his arms down by his sides - one where he is standing behind Inara and one with Wash in the foreground. When it cuts back to the shot of him standing behind Inara, his left hand is on his belt. His hand then returns to its original place when it cuts back to Wash. (01:04:20)

THGhost

Continuity mistake: When the crew are in the cockpit talking about Miranda, Jayne is in the background holding his head with his left hand. 5-6 shots later he is holding it with his right hand. On the cast commentary of the DVD, Adam Baldwin says that he did this on purpose "just to mess with continuity". (01:03:35)

Trivia: The ID number (C57D) of the ship on Miranda is the same as the ID number of the ship in "Forbidden Planet".

New this month Trivia: You may have noticed that the man who tries to pull a gun during the opening bank robbery and is later killed out of mercy by Mal looks familiar. It is none other than Glenn Howerton, best known for playing Dennis on the dark comedy series "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia." This movie was released just a few weeks after "Always Sunny" first premiered.

New this month Suggested correction: Pointing out credited actors in a film or TV show is not trivia unless there's something in the film or show related to their other work. The fact that Howerton's show aired a few weeks before this film's release is also not trivia as many actors perform in several projects in a given year.

Trivia: Though not stated blatantly in the film, creator Joss Whedon has confirmed that "Serenity" takes place about six months after the final episode of "Firefly."

More quotes from Serenity


Question: Why is River bare-foot so often, especially on a ship that has a lot of metal flooring?

Chosen answer: She has several mental disorders, presumably she finds shoes confining or uncomfortable. It's notable that when she does have footwear it's almost always heavy calf high boots, instead of slippers or more comfortable shoes.

Grumpy Scot

Question: Does anybody know were I could get the Fruity Oaty Bar (the strange advert that makes River go mental) song, as I really like it but don't know where to find it. Thanks in advance.

Chosen answer: Here it is on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BLF5J7rFjhs.

Myridon

Question: At the beginning of the film, Simon gives Mal an injection in the sick bay. What is this for?

Chosen answer: Answering my own question: In the script, Mall specifies that it is an inoculation for the planet's atmosphere.
