Vampire Academy is Out for Blood at New York Comic Con

Casters (Beautiful Creatures), Souls (The Host), and Shadowhunters (The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones) didn’t really work out, so why not give vampires another go? The young adult book-to-film adaptation of Richelle Mead’s Vampire Academy is due in theaters on February 14, 2014, and in an effort to build some hype and satiate the series’ devout fan base, the Weinstein Company brought the project to New York Comic Con.

The film focuses on two primary characters, Rose Hathaway (Zoey Deutch) and Lissa Dragomir (Lucy Fry). Both girls attend St. Vladimir’s Academy, but Lissa is a Moroi and Rose is a Dhampir, and that means Lissa is there to learn about honing her skills as a vampire while Rose trains to become her protector. Moroi are benevolent vampires, but the problem is, they can choose to trade their morality for immortality and turn Strigoi. Whereas Moroi feed from willing human donors, Strigoi go after Moroi blood because it gives them more power, making Rose essential to Lissa

The Trailer Debut for Vampire Academy from Director Mark Waters

Yesterday, we brought you pics from Vampire Academy and, now, we have a trailer to share.  The film is an adaptation of Richelle Mead’s YA series and is directed by Mean Girls’ Mark Waters.  Daniel Waters – of Heathers – scripted the film.  I’ll try to keep repeating that to myself in an effort to generate some excitement for myself, but we’ll see.  This already has two strikes against it: Vampires and it’s based on a YA property. 

The film stars Zoey Deutch, Lucy Fry, Danila Kozlovsky, Gabriel Byrne, Sarah Hyland, Joely Richardson, Cameron Monaghan, Sami Gayle, Claire Foy and Ashley Charles.  Rose Hathaway (Deutch) 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.
