If you don't already know (shame on you) that Richelle Mead's Vampire Academy is being made into a movie -- You do now. And as of last night, an official teaser trailer has been released.
Okay. Now that we have our happy dance out of the way (thank you Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone -- neither of which are sadly in this movie) we'll continue to what really matters. The trailer!!!!!
First look at the girls and I must say Sarah Hyland (far right) has the biggest transformation. I didn't even recognize her at first! Definitely doesn't look like the snotty girl on Modern Family anymore.
Lissa and Christian (Becca's favorite character in the book)!!! This blinks by really quickly, but it's a good little tease.
LOVE THIS! Definitely where Daniel Waters' humor comes in. He's the screenwriter and also wrote my favorite eighties movie -- Heathers.
My only concern -- can we talk about those teeth? Vampire teeth have never looked so...awkward. Hopefully this is the point of the movie and they're supposed to be overly dramatized.
7. VALENTINE'S DAY!!!! What a great marketing strategy. I would approve if it wasn't so damn far away.
Lissa sounds like a much stronger character than I remember. This I 100% approve of.
Ahhhh! She is scary. But don't you love how badass Rose is?! I totally give props to Zoey Deutch. I don't think anyone could have done a better job. She's Rose to a tee.
WTF?!!! What is going on here? I have no earthly idea. Is that Christian that's being seduced by the headmistress? And what the hell is Rose doing under the table with a laptop? There will probably be several change-ups from the book (which is expected for an adaptation) and this may be one of them. Unless a super fan or someone who recently read VA knows this scene. Any guesses???
What the fuck? O_O This is not how I dream about cute shirtless boys.
"What's up with his hair?"
"DIMITRI!!!!!! Hello there."
Obviously he's much bigger than Zoey Deutch. But he is supposed to be older. They cast a man for the role. Which I again, 100% approve of. I wish we could get a better look at his face, but I'm not complaining too much ;)
Thirdly, I'm way too curious about how their going to progress this relationship and how it will be different from the book. Maybe they'll stay true to it...maybe not.
Lissa and Christian again! Yes!
14. Oh gosh! So many clips flashing before my eyes. All I got was Rose being a badass and Lissa standing looking pretty and oh...I think Dimitri threw a punch in there somewhere. Oh wait...and there's this...
LIKE. A. BOSS.
Can we also appreciate the graphic design? Uh, hell yes.
16. In conclusion, I think this movie is going to be epic. Becca is trying to lower my expectations a wee bit by being a little more cynical. She's holding out the possibilty that it might be a complete flop. Maybe.
But I think it'll be awesome.
Quotes from the Trailer
"I don’t know about you, but my school can get a little insane. Most of us stay up all night, and all of us think that we’ll live forever. If we survive graduation, that is." -- Rose
“Blood is family, blood is pain, and blood is death” -- Lissa
