Just days after we named Veronica Mars our Fandom of the Year, creator Rob Thomas and star Kristen Bell are getting our new year off to a great start, with the premiere of the first official trailer for Veronica Mars: the movie.
Coming on the heels of last year’s groundbreaking $5 million Kickstarter, the new trailer features a cameo from Jamie Lee Curtis and brings the whole gang together for a Neptune High reunion—oh, and mystery:
The trailer premiered last night on E! Online. It’s similar to the teaser footage that premiered at last year’s Comic Con, but gives us a clearer look at the main murder mystery, and the call that brings Veronica, now a successful lawyer in New York, back to suburban California for one last case—and, we hope, back into the arms of her tortured high school flame, Logan Echolls.
If the success of women in film at the 2013 box office is any indication, it should be a great year for women at the movies. And nothing says it better than starting the year off right with everyone’s favorite plucky female detective.
Veronica Mars opens in the U.S. in March.
