      Arch Campbell Show: 'Veronica Mars' movie opens this weekend

      (WJLA) - Veronica Mars returns in a new full-length movie to solve a murder involving her ex-boyfriends.

      Seven years have passed since the CW network canceled the TV series about a teenage private eye. Veronica’s comeback comes courtesy of almost 92,000 fans who contributed more than $5,000,000 to Kickstarter.

      The movie opens on Friday on 270 screens and simultaneously On Demand.

      This mix of fan money, social media, theater releases, and On Demand availability could create a new way to get small movies produced.

      This weekend, “300: Rise of an Empire” took in an impressive $45 million.
