With Vampire Academy’s unfortunate box office run, most countries did not have a chance to see the film in theaters. Good news is the film is to be released early through Itunes next week on May 9th. You can pre-order the movie right now , and the Blu-Ray/DVD will be released on May 20th if you want to get your hands on a tangible copy here.
For those who were skeptical about the movie (i.e. bad reviews), may now have a chance to enjoy it at home. I, for one, am hoping people actually give it a chance, it was a fun movie with great performances and fantastic writing. I will route for this movie until the end of time… or until we get Frostbite because this book series deserves to be adapted.
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.
