The Weinstein Company has released a new clip from the comedy Vampire Academy. Adapted by Daniel Waters (Heathers) and directed by Mark Waters (Mean Girls), the Richelle Mead novel series follows Rose Hathaway (Zoey Deutch), a bodyguard for her best friend and Moroi vampire princess, Liss (Lucy Fry). The pair faces the dangers of St. Vladimir’s Academy while navigating forbidden romances and awkward social situations. This clip is incredibly promising, and I particularly like the snappy dialogue.
Hit the jump to check out the clip. The film also stars Olga Kurylenko, Danila Kozlovsky, Gabriel Byrne, Sarah Hyland, Joely Richardson, Cameron Monaghan, Sami Gayle, Claire Foy, and Ashley Charles. Vampire Academy opens February 14th.
Here’s the official synopsis for Vampire Academy:
‘Vampire Academy’ tells the legend of Rose Hathaway (Zoey Deutch) and Lissa Dragomir (Lucy Fry), two 17-year-old girls who attend a hidden boarding school for Moroi (mortal, peaceful Vampires) and Dhampirs (half-vampire/half-human guardians). Rose, a rebellious Guardian-in-training and her best friend, Lissa – a royal vampire Princess – have been on the run when they are captured and returned to St. Vladamirs Academy, the very place where they believe their lives may be in most jeopardy. Thrust back into the perils of Moroi Society and high school, Lissa struggles to reclaim her status while Rose trains with her mentor and love-interest, Dimitri (Danila Kozlovsky), to guarantee her place as Lissa’s guardian. Rose will sacrifice everything to protect Lissa from those who intend to exploit her from within the Academy walls and the Strigoi (immortal, evil vampires) who hunt her kind from outside its sanctuary.
