Hitting theatres across France on 5 March 2014 is Mark Waters’ ‘Vampire Academy’ adaptation. And a new French one-sheet full of vibrant colour and the reappearance of stars Zoey Deutch (‘Beautiful Creatures’) and Lucy Fry (‘Lightning Point’) and their impressive gams has risen. Based on the series of teen vampire novels by author Richelle Mead the movie is due to help settle all those Twi-hards out there who haven’t known what to do with theirselves ever since their beloved ‘Twilight’ ended. The movie co-stars Sami Gayle, Dominic Sherwood, Sarah Hyland (‘Modern Family’), Danila Kozlovsky, Joely Richardson (‘Event Horizon’), Gabriel Byrne (‘Ghost Ship’) and Olga Kurylenk. You can head below for the new poster.
“VAMPIRE ACADEMY tells the legend of Rose Hathaway (Deutch) and Lissa Dragomir (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 (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.”
‘Vampire Academy’ opens across the US on Valentines Day and here in the UK on 19 February 2014.
