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.
Check out the first trailer for Vampire Academy below along with three new images from the film:
Based on author Richelle Mead’s worldwide bestselling series, 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.Vladamir’s 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.
