On March 14th, "Veronica Mars" will open in select theaters, and in anticipation the trailer, below, premiered last night. The movie, directed by "Veronica Mars" series creator Rob Thomas, will bring back the title character, played by Kristen Bell, seven years after the show on which she solved cases as a teenage detective was canceled. The film represents a triumph of fandom over network decision-making, but more importantly for many Indiewire readers, it is the result of a record-breaking Kickstarter campaign that showed that crowdfunding could be used to raise several million dollars for a movie project -- though having star power seems key to making that work. Check out the trailer, which features many other cast members from the series, including Jason Dohring, Chris Lowell, Percy Daggs III, Tina Majorino, Ryan Hansen and more.
