'Veronica Mars' movie trailer released (Video)
Great news, marshmallows -- the official trailer for the "Veronica Mars" movie has been released.
The video was posted online on Jan. 2 and the film is set for release on March 14. Kristen Bell reprises the title role, which helped launch her acting career. The movie, made possible partially due to a $2 million Kickstarter campaign in 2013, is packed with the expected witty quips in addition to action -- Mars can pack quite a punch.
The fiesty and sardonic former California student and private investigator is now a "big-shot New York lawyer" who returns to her old sleuthing ways and reunites with her ex-boyfriend, Logan Echolls (Jason Dohring), after "nine years of radio silence" after she learns he is a suspect in a murder case. She also gets to see her old friends -- and the people who made her high school and college experience hell.
Other familiar faces who starred in the original WB-turned-CW series that appear in the film include the following:
Enrico Colantoni - the actor reprises his role as Mars' dad, fellow PI and former California sheriff.
Ryan Hansen - the actor plays blond, snarky and party-loving Dick Casablancas.
Percy Daggs III - the actor plays Mars BFF Wallace Fennel.
Tina Majorino - the "Big Love" and "Waterworld" actress reprises her role as Mars' friend and hacker Mac.
Amanda Noret - the actress stars as Mars' enemy Madison Sinclair.
Krysten Ritter - the actress, previously seen in "Breaking Bad," reprises her "Veronica Mars" role as ditzy and blunt Gia Goodman.
Max Greenfield - the actor, who currently stars on the FOX sitcom "New Girl," reprises his role as police officer Leo D'Amato.
Chris Lowell - the actor plays Piz, Mars' old college love interest.
Newcomers include Jamie Lee Curtis, who starred with Bell in the 2010 comedy movie "You Again," and Jerry O'Connell, who plays Sheriff Dan Lamb. (Spoiler alert for "Veronica Mars" newbies: In the series, his brother, Sheriff Don Lamb (Michael Muhney) was killed.)
