Can Kickstarter Save Hollywood?

This is the kind of story I want to see created. Mayfield wasnt alone: More than 90,000 fans of the cult TV series helped creator Rob Thomas raise a staggering $5.7 million on Kickstarter, surpassing the $2 million originally needed to get Warner Bros. to make the film. Its too soon to tell how it will fare at the box office, but the Veronica Mars movie, which just wrapped filming this week in Los Angeles, will be one for the history books. Too bad the same cant be said of The Lone Ranger, After Earth, White House Down, Turbo, or Pacific Rim. Those duds, which cost $130 million to $225 million to make, according to The New York Times , were dead on arrival with poor domestic ticket sales and press. The Lone Rangercost Disney more than $225 million to produce and took in $48.7 at the box office over the Independence Day weekend.
