Fans of Richelle Mead’s best-selling Vampire Academyseries were rewarded with a roughly one-minute long teaser trailer for the upcoming hit Vampire Academy: Blood Sistersstarring Zoey Deutch, (Beautiful Creatures, Ringer)Lucy Fry and Danila Kozlovsky.
The trailer shows that the film will follow a recent trend in young adult movies to hit the big screen, shying away from the Twilight-esque theme and falling into a line more similar to The Hunger Games and The Mortal Instruments. Gone are the days of saving the damsel in distress. Instead, the damsel’s going to show up and save herself.
Vampire Academy: Blood Sisters follows the story of Rose Hathaway (Deutch) and her return to school (a place for the supernatually-gifted called St. Vladimir’s Academy) after running away with her best friend, Moroi princess Lissa (Fry). But what they were running away from seems to be back with a vengeance, and now it’s up to Rose to protect her friend from a mysterious enemy that wants Lissa out of the picture. And, you know, there may or may not be a couple of hot guys thrown in for complications sake (not that we mind. Please, take your shirt off as often as you like, Mr. Kozlovsky.)
So what did the trailer show us? There will be fangs, there will be some awesome fight scenes and the steamy-moments will be present. The costumes look phenomenal (The queen’s outfit? To die for!) and the opening scene gives off a bit of a Mean Girls feel.
But I think the most telling part of the whole trailer stems from Lissa’s mini-speech:
“Blood is family, blood is pain…and blood is death.”
Bring it on Vampire Academy: Blood Sisters. We’re ready for you.
