Okay, “marshmallows”, after a seven-year absence, private investigator Veronica Mars (Kristen Bell) is back. The show’s devoted fan-base powered the film adaptation to a lightning-fast $2 million Kickstarter goal and beyond. As you’ve seen from the trailer, there’s a lot of love for the fans, but from what I’ve heard, this isn’t going to be off-putting to everyone else. I believe that the show’s inherent charm can woo the uninitiated, and have them running back to see where the drama all began. So whether you’re a fan or a newbie, all are welcome.
I’m pleased to announce we’re giving away 20 pairs of passes to the Atlanta screening of Veronica Mars, and since the movie involves a high-school reunion, the first 10 pass holders to bring their high school yearbook to the screening will win priority seating for themselves and one guest. Hit the jump to find out how you can see the movie early and for free. Veronica Mars hits VOD and opens in theaters on March 14th.
To enter for a chance to win a pass for you and a guest, send an e-mail to Collider.Passes@gmail.com with the subject line “VERONICA MARS”. The screening is on Wednesday, March 12th @ 7:30pm at AMC Parkway Pointe, so don’t enter if you think you’ll be unavailable. Please note that a pass is not a ticket. To guarantee a seat, please arrive at the theater early since seating is first come, first serve (unless you brought your high-school yearbook, in which case you get priority seating).
In case you haven’t seen it, here’s the trailer:

In the film, Veronica Mars has put Neptune and her amateur sleuthing days behind her on the eve of graduating law school. While interviewing at high-end law firms, Veronica gets a call from her ex-boyfriend Logan who has been accused of murder. Veronica heads back to Neptune just to help Logan find an attorney, but when things don’t seem right with how Logan’s case is perceived and handled, Veronica finds herself being pulled back into a life she thought she had left behind.
