The Veronica Mars following was never huge, but it was devoted. Enough so that several years later, they were able to raise millions of dollars to make the sequel happen. But now that the film is a reality, is it likely to draw in any new fans, or is this strictly for the Marshmallows among us?
While Rob Thomas would no doubt love to grow his fanbase, the marketing so far has been aimed directly at existing fans, with cameos and in-jokes only a true Marshmallow could love. Today’s brand-new poster isn’t much different. Check it out after the jump.
For a while there, the Entourage movie was starting to look a bit iffy. Warner Bros. had greenlit the sequel, but then there was a whole bunch of drama about who was getting paid what. Ultimately, though, the studio was able to wrangle together all six principal cast members with an eye toward shooting in January 2014.
Now that month has finally rolled around, and the actors are indeed ready to work. Hit the jump to check out a couple of behind-the-scenes images of Vince and his boys, reunited once more.

High school reunions feel a bit passe in the age of Facebook and Twitter, but even those who tossed out their own ten-year invites may want to RSVP for Neptune High’s.
The first Veronica Mars theatrical trailer has finally arrived, just ten months after Rob Thomas turned to Kickstarter to ask the so-called “Marshmallows” to make the long-rumored sequel a reality. And what a reality it is.The promo has everything a fan could ask for: romance, mystery, action, snark, and intrigue, not to mention cameos by everyone from Madison (Amanda Noret) to Dick (Ryan Hansen) to Officer Leo (Max Greenfield). Check it out after the jump.
Josh Gad is about to embark on much more than a three hour tour. The Tony Award nominee who can currently be heard in Frozen and is gearing up to play Sam Kinison has just signed on to co-write and star in a live-action film adaptation of the classic 1960s TV series Gilligan’s Island at Warner Bros.
It’s unclear which role Gad would play, but the title character would make sense. He’s co-writing with Benji Samit and Dan Hernandez. Gad is also co-writing Triplets, the potential sequel to Twins. [Deadline]

It’s become de rigeur for any beloved show on its way out to tease the possibility of a movie sequel, and sometimes those promises even come true. Veronica Mars is headed to the big screen next year, for example, and Entourage is set to shoot next month. But don’t expect Friday Night Lights to join them in theaters.
Since the football drama ended in 2011, certain cast and crew members have hinted repeatedly at a follow-up film — Peter Berg among them. Now, however, the producer is singing a different tune, saying that he doesn’t think a movie is such a great idea after all. Read his comments after the jump.
[Update: Taylor Kitsch has weighed in on the movie idea. Hit the jump to see what he had to say.]
