We have six confirmed teen novels coming to theaters this year. They range from the dramatic love story to the fantasy adventure that is sure to be a hit. The first to arrive is Vampire Academy, based on Richelle Mead’s same titled hit series.
Here’s the book summary, taken from our lovely catalog: Two years after a horrible incident made them run away, vampire princess Lissa and her guardian-in-training Rose are found and returned to St. Vladimir’s Academy, where one focuses on mastering magic, the other on physical training, while both try to avoid the perils of gossip, cliques, gruesome pranks, and sinister plots.
And here is the movie summary from IMDB: Rose Hathaway is a Dhampir, half human/vampire, guardians of the Moroi, peaceful, mortal vampires living discretely within our world. Her legacy is to protect the Moroi from bloodthirsty, immortal Vampires, the Strigoi. This is her story.
Gotta admit, the movie summary sounds a lot more dramatic. Vampire Academy doesn’t have an official MPAA rating as of yet, but based on the book series and the following trailer, IMDB is estimating a PG-13. Keep in mind that the creative forces of Mark Waters (director) and Daniel Waters (screenwriter) have individually brought us such classic teen movies as Mean Girls and Heathers. These two know how to put the bite into teen movies (sorry for the pun, couldn’t resist), so check out all the fun.
Will you being seeing Vampire Academy on February 7th?
