It’s been quite an exciting week for Veronica Mars movie news. A new clip from the movie, a beautiful Entertainment Weekly cover, and more has been released.

We’re a little over a month away from the highly-anticipated premiere of Veronica Mars, which means we’re going to start getting tons of updates from Rob Thomas. In case you’ve missed any of it, here’s a round-up of a few of the most exciting updates that we learned within the past week.

‘Veronica Mars’ is 100% finished


As of Wednesday, February 12, Veronica Mars is now completely finished! Rob Thomas announced this fun tidbit through a Kickstarter email yesterday evening, noting that the Kickstarter campaign was launched exactly 11 months ago, on March 12, 2013. What an awesome coincidence!

Kristen Bell and Jason Dohring on the cover of Entertainment Weekly


Veronica Mars stars, Kristen Bell and Jason Dohring, are on the cover of Entertainment Weekly’s Valentine’s Day issue which will hit newsstands this Friday, February 14 (which makes sense, don’t you think?). You can see the amazing cover (complete with a ton of marshmallow cuteness) below.

As Rob Thomas put it, in an update to Kickstarter backers, “That’s right: ten years after Veronica Mars first appeared on television, and eight years after getting canceled, we’ve finally landed the cover story in Entertainment Weekly.”

The issue gives a first look at the movie and also includes musings on the future of Veronica Mars and if the now franchise will ever return to our screens, big or small. You can check out a small portion of the article on Entertainment Weekly’s website now, with the full interview coming tomorrow.

A new ‘Veronica Mars’ clip, plus a behind-the-scenes Entertainment Weekly photoshoot video!


Along with the magazine cover, Entertainment Weekly also unveiled two videos relating to Veronica Mars, the first being a clip from the movie itself. In the clip, we see Veronica and her dad engaging in their usual witty banter. We then see two of our favorite secondary characters, Mac and Wallace, arrive at the Mars household to take Veronica to their high school reunion and give her a bit of surprising news. You can check out the clip below.

The second clip is a Facebook exclusive that gives a behind-the-scenes look at the Veronica Mars Entertainment Weekly photoshoot. This video shows the cast members interacting during the shoot and talking about their loyal Marshmallow fanbase.

The video also shows Kristen Bell and Jason Dohring re-enacting one of the steamiest and most talked-about scenes in Veronica Mars history. You can access this video by visiting Entertainment Weekly’s Facebook page. Trust us when we say it’s a can’t miss.

More important ‘Veronica Mars’ movie ticket information

Tickets for Veronica Mars go on sale this Friday, February 14, at 9 a.m. ET. That’s right. You can book your epic date with Veronica Mars‘ opening weekend as soon as this Valentine’s Day. If you’re a Kickstarter backer, you should have gotten a Kickstarter email about potential advanced screenings near you.

In his replies, he names the creature and states that, no, they aren’t fighting in space.

Then taking to Facebook, Gunn replied to fans who had questions about the image.

An updated synopsis for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 reads:

“Set to the backdrop of ‘Awesome Mixtape #2,’ Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues the team’s adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos. The Guardians must fight to keep their newfound family together as they unravel the mysteries of Peter Quill’s true parentage. Old foes become new allies and fan-favorite characters from the classic comics will come to our heroes’ aid as the Marvel cinematic universe continues to expand.”

So it looks like for those who were lucky enough to see GotG 2 footage at San Diego Comic-Con this year, you’ve already seen this guy in action.

Maisie Williams freaks out over ‘Game of Thrones’ season 7 scripts

"Nothing will prepare you for this."

7:45 pm EDT, August 22, 2016

Maisie Williams finished reading the scripts for Game of Thrones season 7, and totally lost her sh*t on Twitter.

Williams, who plays Arya Stark, is no stranger to shocking moments on the HBO epic fantasy series. But it seems like the events of Game of Thrones‘ penultimate season are so intense, even the seasoned young actress is left flabbergasted.

Earlier this evening, Williams summarized her experience of reading the Game of Thrones season 7 scripts on her Twitter feed. Suffice to say, the stream reads something like a thrillingly ominous preview of what fans will experience when the show returns next year.

Maisie Williams finished reading the scripts for Game of Thrones season 7, and totally lost her sh*t on Twitter.

Williams, who plays Arya Stark, is no stranger to shocking moments on the HBO epic fantasy series. But it seems like the events of Game of Thrones‘ penultimate season are so intense, even the seasoned young actress is left flabbergasted.

Earlier this evening, Williams summarized her experience of reading the Game of Thrones season 7 scripts on her Twitter feed. Suffice to say, the stream reads something like a thrillingly ominous preview of what fans will experience when the show returns next year.

At first, Williams warned fans to steel themselves for the epic events to come.

…but apparently, no amount of mental toughness will be enough for season 7.

To summarize, Game of Thrones fans the world over are now sizzlingly jealous of Maisie Williams… and also, apparently, well and truly screwed.

With George R.R. Martin’s next installment in A Song of Ice and Fire still achingly absent, there’s almost no way to predict the major events of Game of Thrones season 7. Our only theory is that we should probably say goodbye to the feelings we managed to resuscitate after Jon Snow came back to life.

Williams isn’t the only member of the cast hinting at madness to come. Maisie’s on-screen sister Sophie Turner revealed that she too had advance knowledge while pondering Sansa’s future.

“I’ve actually just got the scripts for seven,” Turner tells Variety. “So I don’t want to say too much, because I’ll probably end up slipping some truths out!”

Seven forbid, Sophie. Seven forbid.

Game of Thrones season 7 will air some time in 2017, but not soon enough.

What madness do you think ‘Game of Thrones’ season 7 has in store?

Netflix adapting ‘Anne of Green Gables’ for new TV series with additional themes

Anne Shirley is returning to our screens!

2:45 pm EDT, August 22, 2016

L.M. Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables book series is being adapted for television by Netflix and Canadian network CBC.

The new series will begin filming next month in Ontario, Canada. Though CBC will be airing it in America’s neighbor to the north, Netflix will be distributing it in the United States and the rest of the world.

Breaking Bad writer and producer Moira Walley-Beckett is penning the entire eight-episode series and will run the show. It is expected to air on the CBC in 2017, and presumably it’ll run on Netflix around the same.

L.M. Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables book series is being adapted for television by Netflix and Canadian network CBC.

The new series will begin filming next month in Ontario, Canada. Though CBC will be airing it in America’s neighbor to the north, Netflix will be distributing it in the United States and the rest of the world.

Breaking Bad writer and producer Moira Walley-Beckett is penning the entire eight-episode series and will run the show. It is expected to air on the CBC in 2017, and presumably it’ll run on Netflix around the same.

The eight-book Anne of Green Gables series has been adapted numerous times over the years (including the well-known, two-part 1985 televised miniseries), but this will arguably be the biggest adaptation to date thanks to the potential audience Netflix could pull in.

According to Deadline, “the coming-of-age series will focus on a young girl who, after an abusive childhood spent in orphanages and the homes of strangers, is mistakenly sent to live with an elderly spinster and her aging brother. Over time — and thanks to her unique spirit, fierce intellect and brilliant imagination — 13-year-old Anne will transform their lives and eventually the small town in which they live.”

The new adaptation “will honor the foundation of the book, but will incorporate new adventures reflecting themes of identity, sexism, bullying, prejudice, and trusting one’s self.”

The series will be set in 1890. The first book was published in 1908 by Lucy Maud Montgomery and has gone on to sell over 50 million copies worldwide.
