Vampire Academy Poster and Two Set Videos

A new poster, along with two on-set videos, has been released for Vampire Academy, a new teen-vamp flick based on a novel by Richelle Mead. It’s easy to dismiss this new vampire film as another attempt to cash in on the success of the Twilight franchise, but we’re trying to remember that this is directed by Mark Waters (Mean Girls), with a screenplay by Daniel Waters (brother of Mark), who wrote 1988’s Heathers and Tim Burton’s Batman Returns. Fingers crossed this offers more than the expected tween cash-in.

Below you can find the two set videos and the poster. Beneath all that, you can find the official synopsis for the film.

The first video comes from Entertainment Tonight:

The second comes from MTV:

Official Synopsis:

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.

Starring Zoey Deutch, Lucy Fry, Danila Kozlovsky, Gabriel Byrne, Sarah Hyland, Joely Richardson, Cameron Monaghan, Sami Gayle, Claire Foy and Ashley Charles.

ETA: USA – 14 February, 2014.
