In total contrast to what the title suggests, Serenity ($6) is an action adventure movie with a bit of Sci-Fi thrown in. Written and directed by Josh Whedon and starring Nathan Filion, Gina Torres and Chiwetel Ejiofor, Serenity is the name of the ship on which the action takes place. The crew have to evade an assassin on board who has been sent to capture a passenger with telepathic abilities. This is a movie that fell under a lot of people's radars but guys in particular have given Serenity a cult status. If you loved the TV series Firefly, you'll love Serenity.

It should have a nice drape and hang just below the belt, unless you opt for the long variety.

The collection has everything you would expect, from the plaid shirts, extended t-shirts, hoodies, joggers, and bombers. Some of the collection are on sale now; other pieces will be coming shortly.As of this writing, some of the pieces have already sold out online and are on eBay at a premium. So if you're thinking of heading down to your local PacSun, give them a call to check on inventory.
