First Full Theatrical Trailer for 'Veronica Mars' Movie with Kristen Bell
"I don't really do that anymore." It's time for Veronica Mars fans to finally (hopefully) be satisfied. After successfully funding a Kickstarter to garner support from a skeptical Warner Bros., fans will see the adaptation of the TV series that aired on The CW years ago finally hit the big screen. We've seen footage that debuted at Comic-Con and a featurette that showed off more of the story (mostly just for the fans). Now the first theatrical trailer that will try to sell this film to everyone who isn't familiar with the series has arrived, and this might have some difficulties getting eyes outside of the intended audience. Kristen Bell looks to be great as the series character, but it definitely feels like a movie with a very limited audience. Watch now!
Here's the first theatrical trailer for Rob Thomas' Veronica Mars, from the film's YouTube channel:
Veronica Mars is written and directed by Rob Thomas, creator of the original TV series which lasted three seasons on The CW. Kristen Bell returns as the titular private investigator, who returns to Neptune, California, years after walking away from her past as a teenage private eye. But suddenly, she gets pulled back to her hometown, an ex-boyfriend with baggage, and an unraveling murder mystery. The film was given life after a successful Kickstarter campaign prompted support from Warner Bros. for distribution. Series cast members returning include Enrico Colantoni, Jason Dohring, Percy Daggs III, Chris Lowell, Tina Majorino and Ken Marino. Warner Bros. sends the film to select theaters March 14th. Anyone excited?
It definitely looks like a TV show turned into a movie. Will likely skip it.

It isn't turned into a movie, its the movie end to a TV show. If it didn't look like the TV show all those people who donated money would be pretty upset. Honestly, if you didn't watch the show, this is absolutely not for you. I'd also recommend watching the show because it is very good.

Yes, it'll likely have a limited audience, but considering it was made for ~$6M I don't think it'll have too much trouble at least turning a profit. I'm not expecting it to be a hit (though it would sure be nice for the cast and crew if it was), but I'll personally enjoy the hell out of it. I loved the series. So well-written.

looks better than the great tv show it came from

Honestly... it looks more enjoyable than 80% of the movies that get theatrical distribution deals. It's not trying to be anything but what it is and it looks fun. simple.

As some one that never saw the show, the trailer made it seem fairly interesting... that is until the final shot. Ugh. Who's marketing department still believes we need some awful joke at the end of a trailer? Didn't fit the tone the entire trailer had been trying to set. Note to trailer editors - if the last thing I do when I watch your trailer is roll my eyes, I'm unlikely to buy a ticket. Knock it off.
