VERONICA MARS UltraViolet

Almost 100,000 fans spent over $5.7 million to back a movie sequel to the cult television series Veronica Mars. Backers who spent $35 were promised “a digital version of the movie within a few days of the movie’s theatrical debut” in addition to a t-shirt and some other extras. The movie was released both theatrically and on video on demand this weekend, but a percentage of the crowdfunded film’s backers were left dissatisfied with the movie’s digital download. Why? The Veronica Mars UltraViolet release frustrated a number of kickstarter backers.

Warner Bros Digital distributed the movie through Flixster, which is (among other things) an app front-end for the UltraViolet movie service. There were multiple reports of fans who found themselves frustrated, unable to access their digital copy of the film promised by the kickstarter. Warner Bros. will be issuing refunds to supporters who have been unable to access their copy of the film.

Hit the jump to watch a clip of Hiddleston singing “The Frigate that Flies” (one of the songs from the film) in the voice over studio, and explaining his character motivations as young Hook.

The Pirate Fairy

Tom Hiddleston is already a Disney prince of sorts, but he’ll dive even deeper into the Mouse House next spring. A few months back, it was announced that Hiddleston and Christina Hendricks had signed on for The Pirate Fairy, a sort of Peter Pan spinoff about Tinkerbell (Mae Whitman — yes, her), a badass fairy named Zarina (Hendricks), and the cabin boy (James) she falls for.

Unfortunately for Zarina, the object of her affections may not be quite as sweet and innocent as he looks. It turns out his name is James Hook, as in Captain Hook, although The Pirate Fairy takes place before that crocodile took his hand. A new trailer has just arrived, and you can check it out after the jump.

Fright Night 2 New Blood

Craig Gillespie‘s Fright Night underwhelmed at the box office, but it did well enough that someone decided to greenlight a follow-up. Just, y’know, not one that actually makes it into theaters.

Though the title suggests it’s a sequel, the direct-to-DVD feature Fright Night 2: New Blood comes across more like a remake of the 2011 Fright Night — which, of course, was itself a remake of the the 1985 film by Tom Holland. To make things more confusing, it seems to have no connection with the other Fright Night sequel from 1988.

The big difference in New Blood is that Jerry, the seductive bloodsucker played by Colin Farrell in the last incarnation, is now Gerri, an even more seductive lady bloodsucker played by Jaime Murray. Watch her make out with lingerie-clad victims and lick blood off of a sword after the jump.

Have you ever noticed that a lot of those crappy mockbuster movies have a title that begin with the letters A, B, C or D? Me neither, but now that Gizmodo mentioned it, it does seem a bit strange. Find out the answer after the jump.

Empire State

Dwayne Johnson may be “franchise Viagra,” having helped prop up the Journey to the Center of the Earth, Fast and Furious, and G.I. Joe movie series over the past couple of years, but even he can’t keep Dito Montiel‘s Empire State from going straight to DVD.

The film’s lack of a theatrical run is even more surprising when we look at the rest of the cast list: The Hunger GamesLiam Hemsworth leads, while Michael Angarano and Emma Roberts play supporting roles. As starry ensembles go, it’s not Les Misérables, but it’s a combination that sounds on paper like it should sell tickets.

Then again, even the brightest, most talented stars can only do so much to elevate an otherwise mediocre film. And while the first trailer isn’t quite terrible, it is damningly generic. Hit the jump to check it out.
