‘Veronica Mars’ to be available for online streaming and download on same day as release

MUMBAI: You can now follow the alumni of Neptune High right from the television screen to your living room. Warner Bros, the studio behind the film, Veronica Mars – based on the TV series created by Rob Thomas, will make the movie available for rent or buy online through cable and satellite providers on the day of the movie’s theatrical release on 14 March, same day it releases in limited AMC theatres across the United States.


Instead of sharing ticket sales with the theatres, Warner Bros has opted to rent screen at 270 theatres which would bring them 100 per cent of the ticket sale.


The film follows Veronica Mars, who has moved to New York City nine years after the events of Season 3, but is forced to return when her old boyfriend Logan Echolls is once again accused of murder.


Last March, the star of the show Kristen Bell and show creator Rob Thomas got together and launched a Kickstarter campaign to encourage the fans of the show to fund it. In its first day on Kickstarter, the project broke the record as the fastest project to reach first $1 million, then $2 million; it also achieved the highest minimal pledging goal achieved and was the largest successful film project on Kickstarter. On its final campaign day, the project broke the record for the most backers on a single Kickstarter project!


The film reunites most of the cast from the cult favourite series – along with Kirsten Bell (House of Lies), the ensemble cast includes Jason Dohring (Moonlight), Kyrsten Ritter (Don’t Trust the B---- In Apartment 23), Ryan Hansen (2 Broke Girls), Chris Lowell (Private Practice) with Ken Marino (We’re the Millers), Max Greenfield (New Girl), Jamie Lee Curtis (Freaky Friday), Martin Starr (Freaks and Geeks), Jerry O’Connell (Crossing Jordan), Justin Long (Live Free or Die Hard) and James Franco (Spider Man).
