Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog

Whedonites in the readership are probably aware that Joss Wehdon's next TV project, Dollhouse, will hit the air in January. Those same fans may not know that other audio-visual Whedony goodness will be available much sooner.

You see, during the writer's strike, Whedon wrote a story called Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog. The cast and crew volunteered their services in the hopes that Joss would somehow figure out some way to make money off the project. The movie that resulted will be streamed live from its website in three parts on July 15, 17, and 19. After that, it will be available for download, then on a DVD with extra material.

By now, I hope, you are interested in the cast and storyline. The movie follows would-be supervillian Dr. Horrible (Neil Patrick Harris) as he is foiled by superhero Captain Hammer (Nathan "Captain Tightpants" Fillion) and works up the nerve to talk to a cute girl (Felecia Day). So, the hero is the villian, and the villian is the hero. Oh, and it's a musical.

So, I encourage you to check out the trailer, read the comic, and watch the full story once it becomes available.
