Have you seen the trailer of the Vampire Academy movie?
Click here to see it. In this post I share my thoughts on it.
Book to movie
This is a book to movie adaptation, directed by Mark Waters. Based on the Vampire Academy series written by Richelle Mead. I've read most of the books in the series and reviewed them:
Vampire Academy #1
Shadow Kiss #3
Blood Promise #4
Spirit Bound #5
The first time watching the trailer, the story felt a little to much like a high school chick-lit movie. This is no surprise because the director created other movies like Mean Girls. But I did like a lot of things about the trailer. I like the way Rose is portrayed and the funny touch the movie seems to have. I REALLY like Dimitri... More about him later. I like the look of the Academy and the trailer got me excited to see all the action (AND interaction between Rose and Dimitri ;)).
I'm so happy with the cast members selected for this movie!!
First of all there's Rose Hathaway, our main character who I love in the books. She will be portrayed by Zoey Deutch. I think she's a great choice because she comes pretty close to the Rose I had in mind while reading the series.
Then there's Lissa Dragomir, Lissa, played by Lucy Fry, the best friend of Rose. I needed to adjust to her, just because I pictured her very different in my mind while reading the books. However, after watching the trailer a couple of times, I start liking her as Lissa more and more.
Dominic Sherwood plays Christian Ozera, a character I really like in the books. I think he's a great choice to play Christian. I've seen some interviews and his accent is really beautiful!! Just wanted to throw that out here.
And now..let's talk about Dimitri Belikov. I think I can talk about him the entire day.
He is so perfect for this!! Danila Kozlovsky is the actor in the picture, and he's Russian!! This is exactly the Dimitri I had in mind. He's tall, beautiful, fierce and simply amazing!
What do you think?
This movie will be released in the beginning of February 2014 in the USA and around 17 Februari in Europe.Tell me your thoughts on the trailer. Thanks for reading!
