Veronica Mars - First Trailer

Veronica Mars was resurrected via Kickstarter last year and the task at hand is to not only make it satisfying for those who funded it on Kickstarter, but to make it appealing to an audience that didn't. Not everyone watched the television show so this could be a tough sell to those who have no idea who Veronica Mars even is. If you are unaware, the movie revisits Veronica who is a former teen detective. In the show, Veronica went from high school through college as a teen detective under the direction of her detective father. The first couple of seasons followed less mysteries that lasted over a long arc, but as the show progressed to the third and final season, Veronica was solving new mysteries every episode. Veronica Mars lasted from 2004-2007.

I think the tricky part at hand here is what I already mentioned; there are tons of moviegoers out there who have no clue who Veronica Mars is. The show isn't available for streaming anywhere, so it's not like people will be able to catch up before the movie comes out. From what I can see in the trailer, it seems that the movie is in the same style as the show. That's nice for those of us who watched the show but it can be perceived as cheesy by the average viewer going in unaware of the previous story at all. I feel like this movie should have happened years ago or not at all. Sorry my fellow Veronica Mars fans, but I am not totally convinced.

Veronica Mars is set for release on March 14th. Returning cast members include Kristen Bell, Jason Dohring, Percy Daggs III, Francis Capra, and Enrico Colantoni.
