Jon Favreau Chef

The 2014 Sundance Film Festival hasn’t even started yet and the second huge American film festival on the calendar is already announcing its lineup. That would be South by Southwest 2014, which takes place in Austin TX from March 7-15. The two biggest announcements so far are for opening night, which will feature the world premiere of Chef, directed by Jon Favreau, and the highly anticipated Veronica Mars film. (Which became a Kickstarter sensation during last year’s festival.) But that’s not all. A conversation with Alejendro Jodorowsky, a new film co-written by Mark Duplass, and more are in the first announcements. Read about the first batch of films playing at SXSW 2014 below. Read More »

Veronica Mars

Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas turned to Kickstarter this past spring, nearly six years after the last episode had aired on The CW to ask fans for their support in making the long-promised movie happen. The so-called “Marshmallows” responded enthusiastically, crushing the $2 million goal in less than twelve hours. Now they’re finally about to be rewarded for their fervor.

Thomas announced today that Warner Bros. will release the movie, officially titled Veronica Mars, on March 14, 2014. Hit the jump for more on their distribution plans, plus a clip of Madison and Veronica trading barbs.

Veronica Mars

It’s been a little over six months since the Veronica Mars movie was dramatically funded via Kickstarter, and the film has already completed its primary shoot. We’ve seen a bit of footage, and now there’s a new behind the scenes featurette that shows off some footage and fills viewers in on some of the film’s character backstory.

At Comic-Con this weekend, the reunited Veronica Mars team — including Thomas, Bell, Francis Capra, Enrico Colantoni, Percy Daggs III, Ryan Hansen, Tina Majorino, Chris Lowell, and Jason Dohring — offered the first trailer from the upcoming film. Hit the jump to check it out.
