'Veronica Mars' trailer: Welcome back, old friends

Though I loved Veronica Mars during its original run, I’ve been taking a wait-and-see approach with the upcoming movie. Sure, it’s hard to say goodbye to a good TV show, especially when it’s axed at its peak. But is more always a good thing?
The first trailer for the film surfaced last night at youtube.com/veronicamarsmovie, and I’m happy to say that, yes, so far it does appear to live up to the hype.
The movie, simply titled Veronica Mars, was funded by $5.7 million worth of Kickstarter donations. That was enough to bring virtually the entire cast back onscreen and have the finished product look just as good as theatrical releases that cost 10 times as much (or more).
Watch it, and I guarantee you’ll smile at least five times. My favorite moments included seeing Veronica, Wallace, and Mac together again, learning that Piz is definitely still around, seeing New Girl’s Max Greenfield reprise his role as Leo and, of course, getting a fresh whiff of that Veronica/Logan chemistry.
