Marshmallows, brace yourself. We have our first look at the highly-anticipated Veronica Mars movie. Rob Thomas unveiled a five-minute long clip at San Diego Comic Con a couple of days ago.
“I can tell you that it sort of has a Godfather III theme to it,” Thomas said of the teasing footage, “Which is odd, because why not pick Godfather II? It was better. … I can tell you [Bell’s Veronica character] has not worked as a private detective since the last time you saw her. Part of this movie is her getting back into this life she thought she left behind.”
Turns out Veronica Mars (Kristen Bell) is now a lawyer. In fact, the trailer begins with her at a job interview with a prospective employer played by Jamie Lee Curtis. In addition to a teaser trailer, the video also features footage from behind the scenes. Most notably, the hardcore fans’ desire to get the film made via Kickstarter. If you were one of the many who financially backed the film, watch the video below to see if your money was well spent. The Veronica Mars feature film is tentatively slated to open early 2014.
