Kickstarter backer update:



Quote:
Gang,

In just over an hour, Veronica Mars will have its "official" worldwide premiere at SXSW, here in Austin, for a theater full of film lovers who might -- or might not -- be Veronica fans, and I'll get to see how a film festival crowd reacts to what we've made. It should be fun, and I think it will tell me something about how the general public might respond to the movie.

You might think that premiering my first film at a major film festival, in my hometown, would be the most exciting thing happening to me today. But it won't be. It's going to be amazing and a heady experience, sure, but the most exciting part of my day will be just a few hours later, when we hold the first of our Kickstarter premiere events. The cast and I will take our seats and watch the movie again, but this time in a theater full of our backers -- fans so committed to Veronica that they made this movie possible. For the first time, I'll get to see the movie with some of you.

When we were making final plans for tonight's event, the theater staff -- knowing that I'll just have seen the movie at SXSW -- offered me a private room where I could relax, in case I didn't want to see the movie twice in a row. Here's the thing: I know the movie by heart. I've watched every scene in the movie hundreds of times.

But for me, tonight's screening isn't about seeing the movie for the umpteenth time: it's my first chance to watch you watching the movie and to experience it with the people we made it for. I've been anticipating this day for a long, long time.

It's time for me to get ready for the SXSW screening, but before I do, I'll say it again:

Thank you for giving us the chance to make this movie, and for making today possible.

We can't wait to meet some of you tonight, and over the coming week.

Rob



I so hope fans and people new to Veronica Mars enjoy this movie. I'm so excited and yet nervous how it will turn out. Looking forward to hearing reactions.

Having a marathon today. Trying to get as much of Season 3 watched as possible. Need to finish by Friday. LOVE this show so much! Kristen Bell is perfection. Even season 3 is awesome, IMO. I know it gets a bit of a bad rep and is seen as the weaker season but I think Rob Thomas did a great job of making it easier for new viewers to get into by having shorter mysteries rather than one that lasted over the course of an entire season. It's what the network wanted him to do and he succeeded without, at least IMO, compromising the enjoyment of the established fans. The writing and acting is still as strong as ever. And even a weaker season of this would be better than the majority of what was on network TV.

A friend of mine (a fan, who also donated to the campaign) saw the film three days ago and he loved the hell out of it.

I gave in and watched the first 8 minutes. The baby weight is distracting :(, but the movie seems really good.

"This is the Veronica Mars fans have been dying for, and if that means non-fans aren't going to have as good a time as fans at the movie then screw them, they should be fans in the first place."

I'm surprised reviews are quite positive. Wasn't sure if people who weren't fans of the show would enjoy it. But with its 75% Fresh rating on RT and a very good 7.1/10 average it's looking like they will. Surely not everyone reviewing it is a fan of the show.

Love this from the Entertainment Weekly review:

Quote:
Kristen Bell, if anything, has only gained in appeal: She's alluringly fixated, with eyes like heat-seeking missiles and a dry-martini delivery of lines like ''Kudos for rockin' the 'stache till it came back in style!'' Bell and Thomas take us back to the hard-boiled-gumshoe Hollywood of the '40s. Veronica will solve that crime, because she's got something in common with whoever did it: She's addicted to the dark side.

Hard to believe the movie is so close! :clap2:


At a theater in my area, the movie already has two sellouts for its midnight showings. Earlier in the night, at 8pm there are two sellouts for something called the "Veronica Mars Fan Event". The 7pm showing on Friday is approaching 75% full and the 9:45pm showing is closing in on the 50% full mark. I'm excited to see how this does at the box office.


How are those Friday showings now?

Yes, it's supposed to be available on demand, Amazon and iTunes. Backers of the Kickstarter are also getting a download code e-mailed to them.

The girls behind me at the theater Friday night were talking about how Joss Whedon loved the show so much he begged them for a cameo, which he did have. I never knew what he said about the show though but came across this:

Quote:
"Best. Show. Ever. Seriously, I've never gotten more wrapped up in a show I wasn't making, and maybe even more than those. . . . These guys know what they're doing on a level that intimidates me. It's the Harry Potter of shows." —Joss Whedon, creator of Buffy and writer/director of Marvel's The Avengers


:thumbsup:

do you plan on reading the new book Mike? I just got it in the mail, gonna read it when I have time.

I finally finished season 3 and man, now I know how fans have felt, especially with that ending. It's great that the show somehow pulled through and got something more fulfilling then that. Overall season 3 wasn't bad but the show deserves a better last season.
