They also are having a 12:01am showing at the same theater.

They're supposed to be handing out t-shirts and other stuff. Maybe that's part of the extra 30 minutes?

Ask us after we see it tonight.

Advance review summaries I've seen have been positive. (I'm avoiding reading anything in detail until after I've seen the film.) From what I can tell, the consensus so far is that the movie is accessible for people new to Veronica Mars, although there are emotional and character beats that may not resonate with newbies as much.

What a crock of ****. The digital download is only available via flixter. This means I can't watch it on my tv at all considering I have nothing with a flixter app.

Now I'm going to have to find other means. What BS.

The movie is hovering in the 74-76% range on RottenTomatoes, and fairing a bit worse with a 61 on Metacritic. Still, not horrible, and probably a bit what you might expect given that it is more or less a movie extension of the TV show, for all the pros and cons that might mean.

You were going to have to install something no matter what due to the DRM. In this case, you'll need the Flixster Desktop app if you want to watch the movie on your computer offline. And of course you'll need the Flixster app on any mobile device.

I'm not happy either, but I believe them when they said they looked at all the options and this was the only one that let them release the digital copy to all backers, everywhere, at the same time. So it's BS, but I don't blame them for it being BS.

so how am I supposed to get the download? I can't get it in iTunes, I can't rip it, the only way will be to torrent something I paid for.

All these digital downloads include copies for iTunes and other services when you buy a bluray, why was it hard his time? Flitter doesn't even have an app on roku.

You create an account on Flixster and then watch it streaming to your browser. To download for offline viewing, you have to install the Flixster desktop software. And you watch it on mobile via the Flixster app for iOS or Android. That's as I understand it… I've not used UV/Flixster and it's why I would have much preferred it via iTunes.

For TV, I'm hoping the Flixster app on iOS allows AirPlay to an AppleTV. That will do in the interim until my BD arrives and I can rip it. (But not as good as being sourced from iTunes to begin with.) If there's no Flixster channel on Roku, I guess you'd have to connect your computer or phone to the TV to watch it on your bigger screen?

I was hoping for an iTunes code as well, but I understand why they went with Flixster. I'll probably end up buying it through iTunes for the convenience, even though I'm a backer.

How does a non-financial supporter see this movie? Are there open seatings? The good theater does have it - based on the list someone shared way back. Or is it only for kickstarters? Or if I buy it?

I don't need to own it, I just want to see it because you'll all be talking about it. . Oh, so I mean this weekend. I assume next week will be open to anyone.

Then there's that. I couldn't do it, since I didn't back. And kind of hope people don't put it out for a while.
Oh, except I now see David's predicament.

There are special advance screenings at a few AMC theaters tonight. I think those mostly sold out. The movie opens generally tomorrow -- but it's not a wide release. It's only at AMC theaters and not nearly all of them. But if there's one near you, you could certainly catch it this weekend.

If there's not a theater near you, the movie will be available on iTunes for purchase tomorrow. Maybe other digital platforms, too? Not sure.

I assume our digital copy with be HD? Would kind of suck if its only in standard definition.

EDIT: nm found it

Veronica Mars Backers located in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom and Ireland will be provided with a Digital HD UltraViolet version playable through Flixster and all other UltraViolet service providers. For more information regarding playback on Flixster, please refer to http://support.ultraviolet.flixster.com.

To clarify: Other than the fact that this movie will only be shown in select AMC theaters, this is a normal theater released movie. Anyone can buy a ticket at the box office or through Fandango and go and see it.

Flixster most certainly does. I just set it up on my dads new Roku 3 about 2 hours ago.

I also wonder if it will also show up in my Vudu library since all my other movies appear in both places.

To those planning on watching the PaleyFest stream, they're now tweeting that it is expected to start about 25 minutes later than expected, approx. 8:25 p.m. PDT/11:25 p.m. EDT.

They showed some Q&A footage from the NY Red Carpet Premiere as well as a clip with Kristen Bell before the movie began. That probably accounts for the extra time.

It's an UltraViolet release; you redeem it via Flixster but it will be available via all UltraViolet sources.

The swag was handed out as you entered the theater (at least in Boston) so no delay for that. The clips and footage was not nearly 30 minutes though: probably more like 10 minutes or so, if that.

Count me happy they didn't go with iTunes. I don't have any Apple devices; iTunes video does not run well on my systems. If they had to go with DRM Flixter is OK with me; I can use my phone (which also has an HDMI out), my Roku, or my desktop.

PaleyFest panel was good, although I wish there would have been more questions to the cast, because Rob ended up speaking for most of it.

Interesting to hear that apparently Warner Bros does have a specific number that would make the movie a success in their minds. I'm not surprised that RT didn't disclose what that number is.

The other interesting thing for me is that RT brought up Amazon and Netflix streaming in passing; I've often wondered why they didn't go down that road instead of a major motion picture. I do wonder if that could potentially be an avenue for future projects, if there are any.

ETA: Ugh. You have no idea how many times I've almost clicked the "Veronica Mars Movie (Spoilers)" thread. It's KILLING me to avoid it.

At this very moment, you probably could read it. Only two of us have posted so far, and I think we've (really, I have) only mentioned one spoiler. Go on, you know you want to…

I don't want any spoilers, but I am curious to know what people who have seen it thought of it. Is giving their opinion of the film considered a spoiler?
