Prepare to be tested in this trailer for Vampire Academy

Aug. 14, 2013by: Niki Stephens

I don't know what's going on here. I just went from talking about the end of TWILIGHT to another movie that revolves around vampires and the teens that love them.

I'm going to be fair with this one since I've never read VAMPIRE ACADEMY, nor did I know of its existence until now. As someone nearing their thirties, I don't know what the teens are into anymore aside from crawling into ball pits at Wal-Mart and twerking. What is twerking?! Ugh, I'm tragically unhip. So forgive me if I don't get the "awesomeness" of bringing this material to the big screen.

To its credit, VAMPIRE ACADEMY: BLOOD SISTERS doesn't have any sparkly vamps and has a good deal of action but THE LOST BOYS and NEAR DARK, it's not. It was adapted by Daniel Waters (HEATHERS, BATMAN RETURNS). Also I'm not familiar with any of the teen stars though I did find three actors I am familiar with: Olga Kurylenko, Joely Richardson, and Gabriel Byrne. The series from Richelle Mead does have romance, depression, sibling rivarly, and all the other stuff that might not appeal to you when it comes to a vampire flick. That said, I am not part of the target audience but there might be someone here who has enjoyed the books.

Synopsis: Rose Hathaway is a Dhampir, half human/vampire, guardians of the Moroi, peaceful, mortal vampires living discretely within our world. Her legacy is to protect the Moroi from bloodthirsty, immortal Vampires, the Strigoi. This is her story.

VAMPIRE ACADEMY directed by Mark Waters (MEAN GIRLS) hits theaters on February 14, 2014.

It seems all these Young Adult adaptations are blurring together into an amorphous, indistinguishable mass. But the involvement of the Waters brothers does inspire *some* confidence. And Zoey Deutch is cute, she does take after her mother.

I read the first 2 books... the series is more concerned with sexy boys and forbidden romances than anything else. Got boring real quick.

Vampires have academies now? What, they have to learn how to bite necks? What a useless undead generation.

Mark Waters is on a role! First Mean Girls, which is the greatest film of the last decade and now VA, which looks like it may be the best film of the next decade. Aronofsky, Coen Brothers, Herzog, Scorsese, Nolan, Allen, PT Anderson you idiots need to take notes. Mark Waters could teach you chumps a thing or two if he wasn't so busy crafting masterpieces, that is.

*shakes head*... The vampire genre is a lost cause now. It was hijacked by the chick flick genre.

I can't make heads or tails on who is the female lead or what the story is about. That is one messy trailer.

Damn

When I was a kid, vampires went to public school just like everybody else.
Get rid of Mark Waters and make your movie about over-sexed young adult vampires with Roger Waters... and then maybe I'll be interested.
