‘Vampire Academy’ Trailer: Who Says Young Adult Adaptations are Dead?

Though the trend might seem on the wane, ‘Vampire Academy’ is the latest in a series of Young Adult novel to be brought the big screen and it’s just released its first trailer. Sure, ‘The Host‘ and ‘Beautiful Creatures‘ flopped. And sure, the prognosis for ‘The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones‘ isn’t looking good. But when you have hit films like ‘Harry Potter,’ ‘Twilight‘ and ‘The Hunger Games,’ there’s obviously gold in them there YA hills. So these films are going to keep coming.

This first trailer doesn’t let the viewer into the film’s narrative thrust. There’s some kind of a prom, there’s obviously a sense of humor to the proceedings, and there’s a lot of CG violence. This seems like a tease made for the faithful, for those who know these characters and can’t wait to see them on the big screen, because there’s no narrative presented. We’ll probably get that in the next trailer.

‘Vampire Academy’ opens February 14. Here’s the film’s 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.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 (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.
