For a lot of people, even those that are fans of Kristen Bell, the Veronica Mars movie may seem a strange, and possibly useless, beast. For others, it has become a certain embodiment of surprisingly cool new forces that are at play, and not only because of the Kickstarter route to financial backing for films.

I was never even a real fan of Veronica Mars, but I can’t help but support anything that gets pulled up from the ashes by loyal fans. Whatever the route such things might take (like Cougar Town finding new life on a cable network, or other examples where this has happened), you have to appreciate the idea that enough fans can make enough noise so that a new chance is given to some of the better ideas that weren’t quite mainstream enough to fully develop. Besides, if it keeps us from frantically dredging up some other remake or sequel that no one wanted.

It’s getting close to the release of this one, and a bunch of new images are available. Unfortunately, they don’t exactly reveal a whole lot, especially when considering what we already get in the trailers.

Still, I have a feeling that people might be interested.
