Stuff Bulletin: Stock Up on Firefly For the Holidays

Firefly: The Complete Series Blu-Ray Logo

We give you this late-breaking news thingy with a few choice items of pop culture info for your rapid digestion–but primarily for this: Amazon’s deal of the day is for the complete series of Firefly. The Blu-Ray is just $18.99 (79% off its list price) and the DVD is just $14.99 (70% off its list price). So seriously, just snag the Blu-Ray for that price difference. And even if you don’t want it for yourself–ahem–the holidays are coming. Just saying. Sale lasts today only or until they run out.

  • This new trailer for Haywire has me terribly intrigued. I know the spy-got-burned-wants-revenge thing has been done so often that it’s its own subgenre, but when you consider this cast with Soderbergh at the helm? Yeah, I’m in.

  • In a move that will surprise absolutely no one, Warner Brothers has a Lego movie. No, not a “Lego [insert character that’s been used for a Lego video game] here” movie. A Lego movie. It’s going to be animated/live-action. It’s going to hit cinemas in 2014. No other details known…expect more announcements this coming week. Source: Variety.
