An Early Valentine's Day Present from EW.

355 likes

Gang, 

At the end of yesterday's update, I told you that we'd have something fun to share with you later in the week. 

As it turns out, later came sooner than I was expecting. 

This morning, EW revealed a fun surprise they've been planning for months, and gave readers a first look at the cover of their Valentine's Day issue:

That's right: ten years after Veronica Mars first appeared on television, and eight years after getting canceled, we've finally landed the cover story in Entertainment Weekly

The full article won't be available until EW hits newsstands on Friday, but in the meantime, EW also has two new videos: a clip of Kristen and Jason from their photoshoot (on Facebook) and new footage from the movie (on their website).

It's an exciting moment for all of us, and one that we wanted to share with you.

More soon,

Rob

      I had such a busy week last week and kept putting it off and then missed out getting this magazine. Bummed. Adult life isn't fair.

      I have not gotten my magazine on my nook, and I went to bn.com and shows last week's as the most recent one, anybody else has this problem.

      Great art deserves a great start. I love everyone’s work on this project. I’m re-watching the series with my girlfriend on DVD and making her a fan with the great stories and performances.

    4. Molly Engquist on February 13, 2014

      Just read the article! Love it! Can't wait!

    5. Triana Biggers on February 13, 2014

      LOVE!!! These shots are fantastic! Leave it to Kristen and Jason to do anything but their best at being playful. :)

      ok, it's official. I am going to burst if I don't get to see this movie pretty soon. Love the clip, love the photoshoot.

      Sorry...apparently, the February 21st issues hits the stands on February 14th. My bad!! (I tried deleting my message but can't!)

      FYI...it appears that the LoVe cover is getting bumped to February 21st. I just received my February 14th issue of EW today (plus saw it on stands in the airport) and Phillip Seymour Hoffman is on the cover. A fitting tribute to be sure and a good reason to push our heroes out one week. Just thought I'd let folks know so they're not disappointed when the issue arrives or they go in search of it later this week. Can't wait to see it!!!

      About EW print - it's one of the dying weekly magazines. I'll be able to buy it tomorrow at my neighborhood newsstand in LA. It will be dated the 21st, because they're typically dated a week after for the hinterlands. There may be a periodicals seller in your area, so you don't have to wait. Otherwise, you might have to wait or special order.

      Where do I buy a "Team Logan" t-shirt?

      That was very cool. I enjoyed both of those little links.

      @Jennifer - I'd never even heard of AMC until we got the list of movies it was going to be in. The closest theater is almost two hours from me (which is within "acceptable" range . . . except I think the seven minutes it takes to get to the local theater is more driving than I want to do at a time, because I hate driving) and it's in the wrong direction to meet my brother (a fellow Marshmallow) in the middle somewhere. And he's not a big fan of driving either. Our sisters like driving, but they aren't Marshmallows (sad, I know).

      @Jennifer: Feel free to email us at veronicamars@robthomasproductions.com if you've got questions about it.

      I would be a lot more excited if I was actually going to be able to SEE the movie. COME ON. Put it in more theaters than AMC. It's RIDICULOUS that as backers, so many of us won't be able to see it in the theater. And I haven't been able to get ANYONE on your end to tell me why.

      Totally awesome, and I'm really glad we didn't lose to Vampire Academy in the MTV Movie Brawl. It's a terrible movie according to the reviews and ratings.

    15. Darrell Thompson on February 12, 2014

      Very cool. I will definitely get me a copy. Historical.

    16. Tricia Branham Cox on February 12, 2014

      How is Jason Dohring even hotter than he already was?
      That little kiss on the head at the end make my heart flutter.
      One more month, Marshmallows. ONE MORE MONTH.

    17. Lindsay on February 12, 2014

      A photoshoot, behind the scenes video AND a new movie clip?!
      (fangirling off in the distance)

      Can I just ask, how is it that Kristen and Jason never ended up as a real life couple?! Their relationship is so loving <3

    18. Jill on February 12, 2014

      Terrific cover shot! I will head to the newsstand on Friday!

    19. Rodrigo Santacruz on February 12, 2014

      LoVe is in the air, and kudos to EW for covering themselves with it. Don't they look damn good? Can't wait to see the shoot!

      @Leah

      EW JUST tweeted this link if you want the issue: http://backissues.ew.com/storefront/2014/EWbackissue/prodEW20140221.html… You can order the issue directly! :)

    21. Leah on February 12, 2014

      Too bad I can't find EW in any store Tulsa. It's like no store carries it. Is it a subscriber only magazine?

      Matt Clipp on February 12, 2014

      That clip of Kristen and Jason reading each other's lines from the "epic" scene was amazing. Their chemistry is undeniable, even when they're playing the opposite characters! Can't wait to get the magazine and read the full article. And by the way, I would LOVE to have a poster sized version of that cover! I hope EW releases all the pictures from the photoshoot!

      Just saw the video (chrome on laptop worked)!!!!! =D thanks for sharing all the behind the scenes footage! =D

    24. Meleah Bryan on February 12, 2014

      Is it definitely going to be this Friday's issue? The date on the cover reads February 21.

    25. Kira Bonnice on February 12, 2014

      Liking EW was totally worth it for that video. I just love the chemistry between Jason and Kristen. I am SO excited for this movie!!!!!

      Not only a VM cover, but also a hint that something might be happening with Party Down? Best V-day gift ever!

      The magazine cover is awesome, congratulations, but a lot of excitement left my room when I found out the movie isn't going to be shown in Albuquerque, NM. The city population is over half a million, the metro area is over 900,000, and we don't get the movie? It's an 8 hour drive to Phoenix or Denver, and 12 hours to Dallas. My daughter in New Orleans is taunting me that she gets to see the opening, and New Orleans has less than 400,000 population! WTF!? Man I hope the theaters flood with marshmallows and we get a later release, because I was really looking forward to this event!

    28. Marta Schulenburg on February 12, 2014

      I used Chrome as a browser and the video worked great. I absolutely love the cover and all the clips, including one I hadn't seen before of Wallace and Mac dragging V to the reunion. I am so looking forward to seeing this film!

      Love the cover. I couldn't see the clip of Kristen and Jason. I got an error that said I'm not authorized. I did see the new movie footage. Looks great. Can't wait for March 14.

      Best. Cover. Ever. Congratulations on a fine media coup!
