A trio of new character posters featuring the likes of Zoey Deutch (‘Beautiful Creatures’), Lucy Fry (‘Lightning Point’) and Dominic Sherwood from the Mark Water’ upcoming ‘Vampire Academy’ have landed ahead of this Friday’s premiere. The success of this movie, based on the series of novels by author Richelle Mead, could potentially mark the beginning of an entirely new teen franchise. And without fresh installments of ‘Twilight’ or ‘Harry Potter’ to fill the void it couldn’t be a better time to net an audience. ‘Vampire Academy’ also stars Sarah Hyland (‘Modern Family’), Sami Gayle, Joely Richardson (‘Event Horizon’), Gabriel Byrne (‘Ghost Ship’), Olga Kurylenk, Claire Foy and Cameron Monaghan. Head below for the new posters.
“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 in the US on 7 February and on the 23 April here in the UK.
