All eyes will be on the Veronica Mars movie when it hits theaters this March to see how the first major film that broke film fundraising records on Kickstarter will perform at the box office. Will it turn out to be a wise investment for fans? Will it make enough money to cover its budget? Nobody knows yet, but after watching the first trailer, it’s clear to fans of the show that at least the tone will be consistent from the show to the movie – even though there will have been a seven year gap between the ending of the show and the film’s release.
But what if you missed the show when it was originally on from 2004-2007? Today, Amazon announced that, starting now, the Amazon Prime’s instant video service will be the exclusive online streaming home of the entire series, thanks to a deal with Warner Bros. TV. Brad Beale, the Director of Digital Video Content Acquisition, had this to say:
“The ‘Veronica Mars’ series has been popular on DVD and Amazon Instant Video for years, so we know how much Amazon customers love this iconic television show. We are excited to become the exclusive subscription streaming home for ‘Veronica Mars’ and to be able to offer the entire TV series to Prime members to enjoy at no additional charge. With the movie coming on March 14, both die-hard fans and new viewers can easily catch-up on this great show.”
I was hoping to rewatch the series before the film came out, but was disappointed to discover that I couldn’t find it streaming anywhere online. Regardless of the upcoming movie, I’d encourage you to check out this series, because it’s a really terrific piece of crime fiction that combines film noir with a high school setting and has some great characterizations and unforgettable moments. Plus, there’s the added bonus of seeing some huge stars of today (like Jessica Chastain, Aaron Paul, Armie Hammer, and many more) before they were well known.
The Veronica Mars movie hits theaters on March 14th, 2014.
