After years of crying, wishing, hoping, praying, petitioning and more, “Veronica Mars” fans are finally getting the movie they’ve been waiting for, thanks to Kickstarter. The crowd-sourced flick has a distribution boost thanks to Warner Bros., but not the marketing muscle. The big question waiting to be answered is if niche movies can be financially sustainable enough to make future efforts viable. And while the box office and VOD results this weekend will be analyzed by Monday morning, for everyone else, they just want to see the damn thing.
And so, before you line up tomorrow or zap it on your TV at home, here’s five more clips from “Veronica Mars” to get you ready. Kristen Bell and pretty much everyone else from the short-lived show is back, all grown up, with more investigating to be done. But does it work? According to our man in SXSW, yeah, basically, as he wrote in his review that “while not without its flaws, [the film] fundamentally maintains the heart and intrigue of the television series, but in a miniaturized, less nuanced form.”
“Veronica Mars” is back on the case on March 14th. Watch below.
