The Veronica Mars movie will aim to please the fan-base that brought it back from the dead on March 14, 2014. EW broke the news of the release date for the film written and directed by creator Rob Thomas.
Here’s the plot via the reliable wiki page: Veronica Mars, former high school sleuth, has moved to New York City with her boyfriend Stosh “Piz” Piznarski an indefinite amount of time after the events of Season 3. She wishes to distance herself as far from her hometown Neptune as possible, but is forced to return to her old hometown when her old boyfriend Logan Echolls is once again accused of murder.
Disney has released the first trailer for its upcoming animated film Frozen, and it doesn’t look like drek. Mind you, that may be because I was expecting easy musical numbers but instead was treated to some well timed jokes and nice looking animations, so mild applause.
Disney’s Frozen Features the voices of Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel, Alan Tudyk, Santino Fontana, Chris Williams and Josh Gad. It was directed by Chris Buck (Tarzan) and Jennifer Lee (Wreck-It Ralph),
Anna (Kristen Bell) teams up with a mountain man named Kristoff (Jonathan Groff) and his reindeer companion Sven to go on a quest to find Anna’s elder sister, Elsa, the Snow Queen (Idina Menzel), who has banished herself to the mountains into a snow palace, to put an end to the eternal winter she accidentally cursed the kingdom of Arendelle to suffer with her unusually strong ice/snow-based powers.
Watch the trailer below, Frozen opens in 3D on November 27th.

I suppose it’s going the way of Kentucky Fried Movie and will have many sketches for us to watch and laugh along to. Kate Winslet and Stephen Merchant was really all they had to tell me.

The action romantic comedy Hit and Run has a trailer below, and it’s clear that it would have worked better as a re-band but what can you do? Dax Shepard writes, directs and stars in the movie; he plays as an ex-getaway driver who exits the Witness Protection program to drive his girlfriend to Los Angeles.
Their road trip grows awkwardly complicated, when they are chased by the feds, and increasingly dangerous, when Charlie’s former gang of criminals enter the fray. That would be Bradley Cooper in the dreads.
Watch the trailer below, Hit and Run hits theaters on August 24th.
Up first for trailers this week, Welcome to the Rileys starring Kristen Stewart and James Gandolfini directed by Jake Scott, son of Ridley. A couple driven apart by the death of their daughter are brought back together when they meet a troubled young woman. Galdolfini looks to be in top form yet again in this nice little dramatic role. Kristen Stewart is shown only for a few seconds here and there, but we haven’t forgotten she really can’t act. The film opens November 5th. (more…)
One of my biggest peeve’s has to be when a TV show that I am a fan of suddenly gets the boot. One of the more famous circumstances of premature cancellation would be Family Guy, but we all know how that turned out. But what about shows like Freaks & Geeks, Action, and My So-Called Life? Some shows like FireFly for example tried to wrap things up with a movie for the fandemonium that took place after the show got yanked. Well, if you ever tuned into Veronica Mars you would know how abruptly this show was pulled and the need for a wrap up movie was defiantly in order, but now may seem out of reach as Kristen Bell explained the situation to EW at the Saturn Awards:
“I don’t think it will ever happen, and here’s why: Rob Thomas and I had a powwow, and we were both 100 percent on board. We took our proposal to Warner Bros. and Joel Silver told us that there is no enthusiasm to make a Veronica Mars movie, and that is unfortunately a roadblock we cannot compete with. Maybe if we bombard them with letters? Maybe they will change their tune.”
So there you have it, the only way this boat might float is if people start writing letters apparently. Hey it’s worked before.
Extra Tidbit: Kevin Smith, who guest starred in an episode said that Veronica Mars was “hands-down, the best show on television right now, and proof that TV can be far better than cinema”.
