For weeks I have been losing over the sleep over the fact that the Veronica Mars movie hadn’t released any Canadian dates. Director/creator promised via emails that there was news coming, but could I trust him? I mean, who can you ever really trust! But the news came out today, exactly one month until the movie premieres in North America and the news is good!
The Kickstarter-funded movie of the cult tv show will indeed open in Canada on March 14th and open pretty wide! It’ll start playing at Cineplex theatres in 13 cities:
St. John’s Newfoundland
and then the next Friday, March 20th, eight more cities will be included:
St. John • Windsor
This is really good news, because it means the movie must be tracking really well and Cineplex must expect that’ll it fill seats, which I definitely think it will!
If the movie isn’t playing in your town, don’t worry. Veronica Mars will be available on iTunes on March 14th for download as well. That’s right, it’s one of those rare movies that will be released digitally and in theatres on the same day! Does that mean I’ll see it in theatres and download it on the same day? Yup!
In the announcement today, there was also a little tease for Canadian fans. Thomas won’t say why, but he included this photo of what looks like some very sweaty national anthem singers wearing Canada jersey.
Bah! I don’t think I’ve ever written a blog post so quickly in my life! VERONICA MARS IS COMING TO CANADA!
