Kristen Bell, how do we love thee? Let us count the ways.
After finding out the "Veronica Mars" star spent her Sunday at a homeless shelter to hold a beauty day giveaway to those at the People Assisting the Homeless (Path) location, our hearts swelled with happiness. Bell has been in the limelight for well over a decade, and she constantly uses her fame to help others in need.
As the Honorary Chair of Path, she frequently comes to the organization's shelters to spend time with the people there instead of doing whatever else celebrities do, which we assume involves counting their money and Googling themselves. (Just kidding. We don't actually think they do that. Well, most of them.)
What's even better about Bell is this instance is just one of the many, many ways she's given back to those around her, as well as made her opinions known in »

Ripper Street is the latest cancellation casualty of the ratings war, but why is the BBC even on the battlefield?
On May 16th 2007, the CBS network in the States cancelled the show Jericho after one season. The post-apocalyptic drama had earned solid reviews, and a growing fanbase, during its intriguing opening season. But the American system back in 2007 was firmly numbers-dictated, with no outlet a la Netflix around to cast its resurrection elixir on the show.
However, there was another weapon that Jericho, unexpectedly, could call on. For 2007 was when the power of social networking was in its infancy, and an online protest was launched. Fans were encouraged to send nuts to the offices of CBS, and over 20 tons of them landed in the network's mailroom (that subsequently were donated to charities). CBS got the message, changed its mind, commissioned season two, and the ratings remained low. »
The film will open in the U.S. on March 14th in AMC Theatres in select markets across the country.
The Veronica Mars movie was made possible by a record-breaking Kickstarter campaign driven by fans of the television show, which ran from 2004 – 2007. Launched by Thomas and series star Kristen Bell, the Kickstarter campaign unleashed an unprecedented level of fan enthusiasm and support, reaching the project goal of $2 million in just 10 hours. At the end of the 31-day campaign, fans contributed $5.7 million, making Veronica Mars the number one funded project in the film category and the third-highest funded project in Kickstarter history. It is the most widely supported Kickstarter campaign ever with more than 91,000 backers, who have remained engaged throughout »

I'm kind of bummed to deliver this news, but it doesn't look like that Friday Night Lights movie that fans we were hoping for is going to happen. We've been hearing about it inching towards production since the series ended in 2011. Creator Peter Berg seemed very optimistic about it in previous interviews, but in a recent interview with Collider, he says that it's not going to happen,
“There’s not gonna be a movie. We talked about it, some people thought it was a good idea, some didn’t; I’ve come to believe it’s probably not a good idea and I seriously doubt it’s gonna happen.”
With shows like Veronica Mars and Entourage making the move to the big screen, I thought for sure there was a chance. But not anymore. Life will go on, but it will go on without a Friday Night Lights movie. I »

When Digital Spy caught up with Bell to discuss Disney's Frozen, we took the chance to ask her about the experience of stepping back into her beloved role, six years on from the show's cancellation.
"I was just nervous for the sake of being nervous, but the minute I got on set and started saying those distinctly Rob Thomas snarky lines, everything felt right with the world," Bell revealed.
She went on to discuss the possibility of a reconciliation between Veronica and on-off boyfriend Logan (Jason Dohring), who have lost contact in the nine years that have passed between the end of the series and the beginning of the movie.

While the year 2015 promises to be one for the blockbuster record books (Star Wars: Episode VII, Batman Vs. Superman, Avengers 2, Jurassic World, Mad Max 4, Terminator 5, Ant-Man, and more), 2014 has plenty of memorable releases in store as well, including X-Men: Days of Future Past, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, and Transformers 4.
With all these high profile projects fighting for the moviegoer’s attention, many small releases are certain to get lost in the mix. Of those, however, the successfully fan-rebooted movie version of the gone-too-soon TV detective series Veronica Mars is likely to stay in the public eye. The show’s creator Rob Thomas ...

One of the numerous benefits of Veronica Mars getting a feature film follow-up is that it.ll not only allow Veronica to once again face off with her nemesis Madison Sinclair, but because the film isn.t bound by the FCC guidelines that dictate content for network television, Veronica can say things like, "Let me try looking like I think you.re an asshole," which is one of the quick responses she offers Madison in the above clip, and isn.t it glorious? Oh, how we.ve missed you, Miss Mars. The latest clip from the film, which just received a March release date, shows Veronica, Wallace (Percy Daggs III) and Mac (Tina Majorino) looking apprehensive as they eye the Neptune High reunion. High school certainly had its ups and downs for all of them, so it.s not entirely surprising that they might be a bit wary about returning. »
For many Veronica Mars fans, there simply isn't a bigger movie release next year than the Kickstarter-funded big screen adaptation of everyone's favourite high school private eye. We sat down with its star Kristen Bell - who's currently owning the animated screen in Disney's Frozen - to talk about the movie, possible musical spin-offs and just what the fan support has meant to both herself and the crew. Disney's Frozen is in UK cinemas from 6 December 2013.

The original plan was to give the movie a limited theatrical engagement in just a few cities before going wide. It would also be available on video on demand and other digital platforms. Thomas now says that Warner Bros. will start out with a wider, nationwide release, and then let the marketplace decide how long it will stay in theaters.
“We’re not going to dribble it out there. There are smart ways to do a movie of this size — and we chose none of them. We are a low budget movie with big set pieces and 60 speaking roles. A murder mystery in a house would have been more cost effective. But I think we have managed to pull it off.”
Thomas shot the movie in 23 days this past summer, and is »

When our very own esteemed Reviews Editor, Stefan Pape, published his review of Frozen on the site, I felt compelled to argue a few of the finer points with him afterwards on Twitter. It wasn’t about anything drastic – I just felt his 4-star review was missing a star – but one of the subjects we differed on slightly was that of the songs. He felt they were a little “hit or miss,” while I was firmly of the opinion that there are way more hits than misses… and then the opportunity to review the soundtrack arose, and I just couldn’t resist the chance to set the record straight.
There are two versions of the Frozen soundtrack available, a standard 32-track edition, and a Deluxe Edition that comes with an extra 27 tracks. We got our hands on a copy of the standard edition for review, and of the 32 tracks, 10 are songs, »

It's always a pleasure to see unusual, niche ideas find support, and ideas don't come much more unusual and niche at least in videogame terms, than an Mmo inspired by the world of Jane Austen.
Called Ever, Jane, the game successfully managed to cross the $100,000 threshold it required before its campaign ended on the 2nd of December. This means that, thanks to the generous donations of 1,600 backers, this Regency-set online RPG will be able to set sail in the next couple of years.
There's good news, too, for the thousands of fans who backed the Veronica Mars movie campaign. Having acquired an incredible $5.7m on Kickstarter earlier this year, it's been announced that the film, which is currently in post-production, will be out »
Throughout nearly two-and-a-half seasons of ABC’s Scandal (Thursdays, 10/9c), Cyrus Beene had been able to rely on a (relatively!) stable home life whilst managing President Grant’s White House affairs (and affairs). His marriage to James, however, became picture-imperfect when a plot to dangle his hubby as bait for VP Sally Langston’s wandering mate delivered unto his Blackberry an eyeful of X-rated interactions.

"Veronica Mars" is hitting screens one year and one day after word broke of her revival. The Kickstarter campaign from creator Rob Thomas, to fund the film based on the prematurely cancelled teen detective drama series, was announced on March 13th this year.
Today, Thomas confirms to EW that Warners has settled on a March 14th 2014 release date for the finished film. He's also dropped some good news - the original distribution plans have changed, and for the better.
Originally slated for a limited engagement in a few cities before a wide VOD and digital platform release, Warner will now give the film a nationwide release - though the number of screens is still to be determined.
Thomas, who confirms the film's title is simply "Veronica Mars," says a recent test audience screening went very well, jokingly saying:
"There are smart ways to do a movie of this size — and we chose none of them. »

The “Veronica Mars” movie, powered to the big screen by fans of the TV series in a record-breaking Kickstarter campaign, has been given a release date of March 14, 2014. Distributor Warner Bros. on Tuesday set the opening for film, which reached its $2 million Kickstarter goal on March 13, the same day that series creator Rob Thomas and star Kristen Bell launched the drive. Fans of “Veronica Mars” — which ended its three-season run on Upn and the CW in 2007 — have been hoping for a big-screen version pretty much since the series wrapped. They mobilized for the funding »

With $5,702,153 in its pocket thanks to fans, the "Veronica Mars" movie has a pretty heavy burden of expectation on it. Not only does it have to sate the appetite of those who have been dying to see the return of the character after the series was canceled in 2007, but it also has to deliver so folks feel like their money was well invested. And so, here comes the first clip from "Veronica Mars" and... Well, we suppose there are only so many ways to stretch $5 million. Kristen Bell takes center stage at her character's high school reunion, with snark to spare and even some voiceover. That said, it all feels very TV-like and working within its budget, though we will say Tina Majorino's hair is amazing. "Veronica Mars" is on another case on March 14, 2014. »
