We all know Vampire Academy finished filming AGES ago, but where's it gone!? It feels as though BOOM we got a cast, BOOM they shot the movie and BOOM, everyone's gone, never to speak of Vampire Academy again!
Our Russian god, Dimka aka Danila Kozlovsky has cut his hair and jet-setted off to Australia, Rose aka Zoey Deutch is back in the U.S, I have no idea what Lissa aka Lucy Fry is doing and all we have to console ourselves with is memories and a cool graphic with a lot blood!
Don't get me wrong, I'm happy it's all been filmed I understand they all have lives, but we are mere fangirls, we have no life! Our world revolves around VA and we need our VA fix!!
Sure we had some pretty cool pics from our cast to drool over whilst they were filming, but we still HAVEN'T GOTTEN SO MUCH AS A STILL FROM THE MOVIE, OR A PICTURE OF RICHELLE MEETING HER CHARACTERS OR A FULL CAST INTERVIEW OR ANYTHING THAT REALLY PROVES THEY SHOT A MOVIE!
Alas, mayhap I overreact, but I sincerely hope we get something soon...maybe a trailer before City of Bones? That could work. Or a trailer during The Hunger Games perhaps? Either way, I think it's safe to say that WE NEED SOMETHING. Something other than a cool graphic on the official website.
Speaking of which, what do you all think of the symbols on said graphic? I have the picture version for you here.
It's pretty cool, it looks like something you could have on a badge or something, or part of school uniform. Except they don't wear school uniform at St Vlads. Don't get me wrong, I understand it's an academy they obviously want to go for that whole prep school, exclusivity thing, hence the 'Higher Learning, Higher Stakes'...pun obviously intended, I just feel that it could've been a little better, considering the stigma that will be attached to this. (because it's another Vampire movie)
I will say the element symbols look better, they're more clear than the ones we've all come to recognise, and at least the spirit one is the same.
The Promise mark, looks a little more curly and feminine in the new graphic, I've got to say I prefer the one above but each to their own.
What's interesting about their graphic and it's something that has been pointed out to me, is the significant lack of 'Blood Sisters' in the graphic and in the teaser poster. (see below)
Again, it looks alright, I'm not that excited about all these white backgrounds, I think it should all be a little darker (as the story is), but there was a huge fuss about Vampire Academy not marketing well with audiences and having to add the Blood Sisters and then suddenly there's no Blood Sisters. Weird, right?
Having shot the movie in roughly 9-11 weeks, It's safe to say I'm a little worried. In order to stand out, VA's going to need some serious marketing ploys to differentiate it from everything else out there, it's going to have to be a kick-ass movie, literally, all that training can't be for nothing and the acting is going to have to be top-notch. (No reference here to Twilight. Of course.)
I do have faith in VA, Richelle has said that it's very close to the books, the script is apparently funny in all the right places, serious in all the right places etc, I just hope this movie is as good as it can be. It has a lot of potential and I wouldn't want to see it get completely drained of it's blood. (No pun intended. Obviously)
What do guys think?
Do you think the movie will do the books justice? How much faith do you all have in this movie?
