First Trailer Proves There's Still Life In VERONICA MARS
After the show was axed, creator Rob Thomas presented Warner Bros with a feature film script, but the studio passed. In March last year, Thomas and Bell launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise the $2 million budget, which they reached in just 10 hours. Their efforts eventually netted them over $5.7 million. A year later and Veronica Mars will be hitting cinema screens on 14 March, and personally, I cannot wait.
Watching this first trailer, it appears that Thomas & Co have recaptured the original tone of the show perfectly, and the familiar faces of Percy Daggs III, Jason Dohring, Tina Majorino and Enrico Colantoni among others are all present and correct and looking to bust open a whole new case. With Mars now working as a top flight lawyer in the big city, the film wisely sees her dragged back to her home town of Neptune, California, at the behest of the weasely Logan Echolls (Dohring). Frankly, that's all I need to know. I'm sold.
