Re: Veronica Mars Movie - Kickstarter

The TVLine article omits some pretty significant information. The article links to another article at EW where it explains.

“In so many of their complexes, Veronica Mars was the No. 1 movie for the entire weekend, far exceeding the next closest movie,” says Goldstein. “It’s not the number of theaters, it’s the quality of the theaters and the number of seats you can make available so that the patrons in the area can go see the movie. That’s what happened this weekend — they flocked.” The per theater average was about $6,945.

Re: Veronica Mars Movie - Kickstarter

It's still not number one. The Grand Hotel movie made $55,000 a screen.

But thanks for the better link. I no longer read EW.com because I hate their new website.

Maybe not. But hey, WB is happy. I'm happy.

And perhaps I bolded the wrong part. It indicated it was number one "in most complexes." That's great.

Re: Veronica Mars Movie - Kickstarter

It opened near me, but I don't know of the theater. I'll see if my mom wants to go see it (she is the only fan I know of besides an ex that lives 300 miles away).

But I think everyone needs to continue to ask...

Will there beanother Veronica Mars movie?

Rob Thomas you created a monster, now you must live with it!

It's a shame that they aren't releasing the VOD numbers. I'd be very interested in the ratio of ticket sales against download.

Agreed. I hope they do release the numbers but I'm doubting they will. If they do, it'll be a month or two.

Re: Veronica Mars Movie - Kickstarter

This article, appropriately titled "The Veronica Mars Movie, and the Trouble With Getting What You Want," nicely sums up my feelings about the movie:

The ending nagged at me, not so much because of any choice Veronica made–though again, poor Piz!–but because it felt like the need of the project to continue the story and keep it going in the future finally overruled any natural growth on the part of the characters.

I went a little insane that the show was cancelled while she was still on the Piz merrygoround.

It was the wrong freaking guy!

It was only upon re-watching the series that I realized how truly short a time Veronica and Piz were together. It was really only 3-4 shows.

The audio book for the follow-up novel, "The Thousand-Dollar Tan-Line", is read by Kristen Bell. That changes the book from a "Must-Read" to a "Must-Listen".

This little video made me laugh. Kristen Bell, Ryan Hanson and Chris Lowell were challenged at RottenTomatos how many marshmallows they could stuff into their mouths.

What's wrong with Piz? Out of all the guys who are not Logan he was probably the best.


I just got back from the movie, that was extremely satisfying. Despite having it out with a few of you here, I am really grateful I followed your advice and watched the show first. And I'm grateful I saw it in theaters too, even if there were only a handful of people.

And for anyone who can resist that, try listening to the sample while the score by Josh Kramon plays. I think I'll have the score on a loop throughout the whole book.
