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.

‘Veronica Mars’ Review: The B*tch Is Back

VERONICA MARS

For most of the past year, the conversation surrounding Rob ThomasVeronica Mars has been about the way it was made. Now that the film premiere has finally arrived, though, the talk can turn to what he’s made. In an ideal world, Veronica Mars would serve the dual purpose of satisfying existing Marshmallows, as Veronica Mars devotees call themselves, while making new ones.

On the first count, I can say as a longtime fan (I was one of the 91,585 who contributed to the Kickstarter) that the sequel just about lived up to my expectations. On the second, it’s harder to judge. For all its imperfections, though, it unmistakably delivers in one respect: It left me wanting much, much more.

Veronica Mars

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.
