The Weinstein Company has released a new trailer for Vampire Academy. Mark Waters (Mean Girls) directs the adaptation of Richelle Mead’s novel, set at a hidden boarding school for Moroi (mortal, peaceful vampires) and Dhampirs (half-vampire/half-human guardians). I may not be in the target audience, but the trailer suggests a sharp script by Daniel Waters (Heathers). In particular, relative newcomer Zoey Deutch handles her sassy dialogue well with a charismatic screen presence in the lead role.
Lucy Fry, Danila Kozlovsky, Gabriel Byrne, Sarah Hyland, Olga Kurylenko, Cameron Monaghan, Joely Richardson, Sami Gayle, and Dominic Sherwood co-star. Vampire Academy opens Feburary 14, 2014. Watch the trailer after the jump.
The first trailer for Mark Waters’ Vampire Academy shows off the latest adaptation in the supernatural YA craze. Adapted by Daniel Waters (Batman Returns), the Richelle Mead novel series follows Rose Hathaway, who works as a bodyguard for her best friend and Moroi vampire princess, Lissa. The pair must survive the dangers of St. Vladimir’s Academy while navigating forbidden romances and awkward social situations. Oh, and the fact that the deadly Strigoi want to claim Lissa for their own. This first trailer doesn’t so much explain anything that’s going on or even tell us who these teens are, but it does introduce us to the world inside the academy walls, which is a sexy and bloody world, indeed.
Starring Zoey Deutch, Lucy Fry, Danila Kozlovsky, Gabriel Byrne, Sarah Hyland, Joely Richardson, Cameron Monaghan, Sami Gayle, Claire Foy and Ashley Charles, Vampire Academy opens February 14, 2014. Hit the jump to watch the trailer and view some new images.
