Though he may be the toast of Hollywood now, there was a time when Joss Whedon’s projects were met by shrugs or outright disdain from studios. In 2002, Whedon’s space-western series “Firefly” was cancelled by Fox with only 2 episodes left to air. In the years since, the cult show has developed a large following thanks to its home video success, which in turn led to the release of “Serenity,” which takes place after events of the series. And last year saw a 10th anniversary reunion show, “Firefly: Browncoats Unite,” air on the Science Channel. Now, three deleted scenes from the series that appeared in 'Browncoats Unite' have found their way online.

Perhaps further evidence that big studios are staying away from dramas like the plague, "The Normal Heart" has been kicking around for the past few years in slow development. At one point, Brad Pitt's Plan B shingle was involved, and almost exactly one year ago, the cast -- which has long had Mark Ruffalo attached to lead -- was rounded out by Julia Roberts and Matt Bomer and then...nothing. But now the project has a new home and a firm start date.

So, in less than four weeks, David Fincher's series "House Of Cards" is set to drop on Netflix, and we have to say, things had been pretty quiet on the promo front before now. There was a trailer and poster way back in November, quickly followed by some character stills, but other than that...not much. Perhaps the next few weeks will see a massive campaign unfurl, and indeed, the arrival of four new trailers is nothing to sneeze at...
