Kristen Bell reprises Veronica Mars in a new theatrical trailer for the movie.

Kristen Bell brings her killer instinct, and, oh yes, killer body to a new theatrical trailer for her upcoming movie “Veronica Mars.” Bell plays the ex-teenage detective who is drawn back to her hometown to solve a murder.

The 33-year-old actress played the character for three seasons on the CW Television Network, and the movie picks up where the final season ended.

Veronica wants to get as far away from her hometown of Neptune as possible, so she jets to New York City with her boyfriend Stosh “Piz” Piznarski (Chris Lowell).

Nine years have passed from her high-school days as a private detective. Now, she’s working as a big city lawyer. But she returns for her high-school reunion, where all the old animosities still reside.

Veronica is drawn into her old role as a sleuth after one of her ex-boyfriends, Logan Echolls (Jason Dohring) is accused of murder. She investigates and uncovers a web of deceit and corruption.

The movie is significant because crowd-funding from Web site Kickstarter made production possible. It raised $5.7 million from just under 92,000 donors, according to the site. Warner Bros. will distribute the film in the United States, Mar. 14.

In the new trailer, Bell displays all of the steely resolve and knife-edged toughness of her neo-noir character in one hot package. “New Girl” star Max Greenfield and “Breaking Bad” actress Krysten Ritter also star.
