Veronica Mars Official Theatrical Trailer Teases Murder, Mayhem And Familiar Faces
Veronica Mars may not be the eager-to-please brunette that Dick ordered, but she’s the persnickety blonde detective fans adored for three seasons and we’re happy to have her back. Among the most anticipated movies of 2014 is Veronica Mars, the feature followup to the beloved and unfortunately short-lived UPN/CW series. On the menu for the feature film -- judging by the trailer -- a murder investigation, some thrilling moments, gunshots, fights and more.
The new trailer (via E!) fills us in on Veronica’s life a decade or so after the series wrapped up. No longer doing detective work, Miss Mars appears to be practicing law and involved with Piz (Chris Lowell). Logan (Jason Dohring) meanwhile, has gotten himself into a bit of a pickle, as he’s suspected of murdering his pop star girlfriend. He didn’t do it. He didn’t, right? Hopefully it’s safe to assume that’s the case, and Veronica seems to be willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. Enough so that she may also be willing to help him clear his name.
Homecoming also involves the Neptune High School reunion, which apparently includes run-ins with some of her old Pirate chums, some of whom she was never quite so chummy with -- Madison Sinclair. But on the bright side, a face-to-face with Madison appears to involve a fist-to-face encounter. So there's that. We also got a glimpse of Krysten Ritter's Gia and Max Greenfield's Deputy Leo.
And then there are the hints of LoVe. The series left off with Veronica dating Piz and on the (mostly) outs with Logan, but there was the faintest hint of a spark left between Veronica and her ex-boyfriend, leaving Logan/Veronica shippers with a glimmer of hope that those two might one day find their way back to one another. Is this it? All signs point to… maybe? It looks like she's with Piz now, but we see her telling Piz over the phone that she just can’t leave — he seems thrilled by that news — and then later Logan’s about to leave and she tells him not to go. Of course, that could be a little bit of a trailer trick. Maybe Veronica's telling him not to go because she's afraid something bad is going to happen to him. Let’s not forget, there’s a murderer out there. Their relationship was always twisted up in drama and danger, wasn’t it? Some things never change.
As a fan of the series, everything about the trailer makes me excited for the movie because I miss these characters and I'm eager to see Veronica solve another mystery. But I'm curious about how the trailer looks to outsiders. Does the film look appealing, or does it seem like it's one big nod to a series they didn't watch?
Here’s a look at the previously released clip from the Kickstarted film, which shows a bit more of Veronica and Madison exchanging verbal jabs…
