With a ‘Twilight’ shaped hole in the market could the Mark Waters helmed ‘Vampire Academy’ be the filler that every postpubescent girl will lap up? Based on the series of novels by author Richelle Mead, the adaptation is heading into theatres next Valentines Day and here’s a batch of new stills to help tide you over until then. Lucy Fry (‘Lightning Point’), Zoey Deutch (‘Beautiful Creatures’), Sami Gayle, Dominic Sherwood, Sarah Hyland (‘Modern Family’), Danila Kozlovsky, Joely Richardson (‘Event Horizon’), Gabriel Byrne (‘Ghost Ship’) and Olga Kurylenk all star in the adaptation. Check out the new images below.
“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 on 14 February 2014.
