Trailer Thursday – Veronica Mars

veronica-mars-movie-poster

The number ONE movie that I am most looking forward to this year is VERONICA MARS!!!!

In case anyone has been living under a rock for the past year – (just kidding… not really…) The creator of Veronica Mars, Rob Thomas (Not the Matchbox 20 front man) put together a Kickstarter campaign to get the fans involved in funding the movie… and EVERYONE came through. The movie is based on the TV show of the same name… they were lucky enough to get all the original cast back.. which really shows how much the actors loved the project as well. The TV show aired for three seasons on UPN/The CW back in 2004-2007.  Kristen Bell plays the title character,  Enrico Colantoni stars as her dad; and the movie also stars Jason Dohring, Chris Lowell, Max Greenfield, Percy Daggs III, Ryan Hansen, Tina Majorino and Francis Capra. The feel of the show is very high school noir; which is why I love it so much. Veronica is a sarcastic and smart character which is somewhat difficult to find in a TV show. She is the main character of the show as well; hence the title; and I feel like most TV shows are not about a female character. But let’s not think that there is no romantic drama in the show… because there is! LoVe forever!!!

Watch Kristen Bell (star of Veronica Mars) talk about the project with Ellen:
