Watch: Kristen Bell Is Back in Action As 'Veronica Mars' Launches First Trailer

You asked for it. Some of you out there actually helped pay for it! Now you’re going to get it. 
We’re talking about the Veronica Mars movie, a feature-length extension of the beloved but short-lived CW mystery drama starring the adorable Kristen Bell (Frozen). The film is notable for something that happened before the movie actually went into production, but more on that in a moment. Here’s the trailer:

When we say that you helped pay for this movie, the Mars feature benefited heavily from a Kickstarter campaign launched by Bell and the show’s creator-director Rob Thomas. Those involved with the movie admit straight up that this picture wouldn’t happen without the financial support of the television program’s dedicated fan base. These people wanted to know what was going to happen next in the life of the one-time California detective played by Bell. 
The question now becomes, “Will these same people come back and pay to see a movie they might already have given some money to in the first place?”
We’ll see soon. I never watched Veronica Mars, though I’m fascinated by the unconventional path it has taken to theaters. And the success of the Kickstarter campaign – as well as the pending movie – have inspired me to see the show out, so that’s a win-win for Team Mars, no?
What did you think of the trailer? Veronica Mars will be in theaters on March 14. Will anyone outside of the target audience bother to see it?
