Another YA book is heading to the big screen! The first in James Dashner’s trilogy, the film adaptation of The Maze Runner releases worldwide on September 19, 2014 (find your country’s release date here) after it was pushed back from its initial date of February 14, 2014. The film was shot in Baton Rouge, Louisiana over the Summer of 2013 and fans have had radio silence from the creative team as far as stills and trailers are concerned. Not anymore!

The first trailer makes its debut tonight during MTV’s Teen Wolf, which airs its third season finale tonight. Fans of Teen Wolf will surely recognize their beloved Stiles Stilinski in The Maze Runner as Dylan O’Brien plays the lead, Thomas, and is joined by other young up and comers. Check out their character stills below which were released last year to promote a Twitter chat with the cast.

(*Note that the release date on these character cards is the older one)

The summary for the film reads as follows –

Set in a post-apocalyptic world, young Thomas is deposited in a community of boys after his memory is erased, soon learning they’re all trapped in a maze that will require him to join forces with fellow “runners” for a shot at escape.

As we gear up toward the trailer release, the Facebook page has started releasing a stream of new stills featuring the glade and the gladers, as well as the mysterious girl Teresa, who is transported into the boys only glade.

The marketing team has also released a gif of Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) looking around the glade, trapped inside the four walls.

Posted on Updated on

With the release of Vampire Academy nearby, the publicity and promos are gearing up and it’s impossible to keep track!

We bring you a roundup of all that has happened so far. Check our Vampire Academy page to make sure you are up to date with everything going on.

3. Danila Kolzovsky (Dimitri Belikov) attended a press conference in Russia to talk about the film. Read the English Translation of the interview which is SUPER ADORBS on Kozlovsky Brazil and if you want to watch him, and lets be honest, who wouldn’t even if they don’t understand Russian, watch it below!

Check out some of our favourite highlights from the press conference –

Danila on Skyping with Mark Waters (on auditioning for VA):

“I showed him two scenes from Richelle’s 1st book. The first scene is how real a Dhampir must kill a Strigoi. I showed him some gestures and read the text. The second scene was about how Dimitri first understood he was falling for Roza. I must show how I see her (Roza), what i’m thinking, how i’m looking at her, what i’m thinking about her.”

Danila on his Vampire Academy Movie partners:

“All the guys are so young (i repeat: so young!) But all of them are incredibly talented. They (Dominic & Lucy) are big professionals but they’re funny too. They made my hard work easier because both have a great sense of humor. There were a lot of joke and laugh during the shooting. They (Dominic & Lucy) helped me with my adaptation very much! She (Zoey Deutch) works so much and so hard! She had only one day off on this shooting, but i never heard complaints from her.”

Danila on Richelle Mead:

“I must say my personal thanks to this amazing writer and woman. She created a very interesting character: Dimitri. She allowed him to fall in love, to love and to protect those he loves! He’s a gentleman and i really appreciate it! Thank you, Richelle!”

Journalist: Can you compare Vampire Academy with Twilight or Harry Potter, for example?

“I never watched Twilight. But i watched Harry Potter! I’m a real fan of this story. Once i watched all the Harry Potter movies in a whole day. (Everyone has a bad day when we want to relax, don’t we?) – Danila laughs – I can’t compare these movies. Every single one of them has their own mythology. Maybe i can only say that the main action of these stories is at schools (or Academy). But i don’t see other points.”

4. Sami Gayle (Mia Rinaldi) appeared on PIX11 to speak about Vampire Academy. She spoke about how Vampire Academy was different from other vampire movies because it was set in a school and is about the tribulations of teenagers at school  and how difficult it is to grow up in the stage between adolescents and adults, something both demographics will be able to relate to. Check out the interview below –

You can also check out the screencaps and transcription on Fans of Vampire Academy.

5. Sarah Hyland (Natalie Dashkov) appeared on the radio with Ryan Seacrest to talk about Vampire Academy. Sarah said that she was excited for her fans to see the film because it is so different than anything else she’s ever done in the past. She described her character as being nerdy, wearing fake pimples, glasses and frizzy hair. Listen to the session below –

6. Zoey Deutch (Rose Hathaway) and Lucy Fry (Lissa Dragomir) took over a Reddit AMA session, answering questions from fans. Check it out on Fans of Vampire Academy. Our favourites are shown below –

9. A few days earlier, Dominic Sherwood (Christian Ozera) did an interview for Hypable which is so insightful. Be sure to read it. Our favourite Q&As …

Q: How did you create the character of Christian?
A: “I went to six auditions for the part of Christian. This is really embarrassing, I worked at Hollister just up the road from where the auditions were being held and I would do an audition one day and my agent would ring me up and say, “that was great but they want you to make him funnier.” I would go in and do that and then I would get a phone call saying, “yeah, that was great but they want you to go in and make him darker, and make him poutier.” I was like, “oh my god, you don’t know what you want!” But when I got offered the role I realized that Christian was all those things.”

Q: What was it like to use fire as Christian’s element?

A: “I was so excited to get to play with fire. It was unreal. We toyed around with the idea early on with this special gel where they could set my hands on fire. I could have done all this crazy stuff with it but we ended up not using it. We had live fire on the set for the whole ending sequence but again, I’m not allowed to mention, but it was cool. We had fire very close to my body at one point and the stunt and safety team had gotten to know me by then and they knew I was pretty clumsy and dumb at times. They were like, “don’t put your hands in the fire whatever you do.” I was like, “Cool. I will try to do that guys, not put my hands in open flame.””

Q: Do you have a message for the fans?

A: “It would be: thank you. For all of the support you have given us and being so nice to us. The MTV Movie Brawl is going on right now and they are so 100% behind us. Thank you, is all I can say. I wish I had more eloquent words, more poetic words, to give you but thanks is all I’ve got.”

Get Ready for “The Fault in our Stars”

Posted on Updated on

The first trailer for the upcoming YA adaptation “The Fault in our Stars” is coming sooner than you think! The trailer was first thought to be scheduled for February 14 …

But recent tweets suggest that the trailer might be closer than we think.

The trailer is rumoured to be 2 minutes and 17 seconds long … word of advice: keep a tissue box handy!

Earlier this month, the TFIOS fans got some exciting new official stills of Hazel and Augustus in Amsterdam, played by Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort, respectively.

In the meantime, check out this really cool poster for the film, due for release this year on June 6 and if you haven’t already … pick up the book and read it!

Beware…VA feels all over the place!

Posted on Updated on

Today has been a great day for the #VAFamily. Why, would you ask? Well… We got a live chat with Zoey Deutch and Lucy Fry, a challenge by Vampire Academy Official Page and a new poster. That’s right, you can start fangirling now!

Earlier today, the Vampire Academy Official Page has revealed we would be getting a surprise really soon:

As soon as this tweet hit the internet, fans couldn’t stop talking about it… What would it be? A new trailer, a poster…

And a few hours later, we had our answer:

However, the new poster (which was going to be revealed by Yahoo Movies) had been leaked earlier, and we got it before hitting the 5K. I don’t know what you think of this new poster, but let’s just say: It’s really different and original.

Zoey Deutch and Lucy Fry look amazingly badass, right? Fangirling level is already high, right?

Well, that’s not all there is for today!

A few hours ago, Lucy Fry (our Lissa) and Zoey Deutch (our Rose) took part in a live chat with fans. And they were really looking like best friends, even holding hands for most of the chat…. #THEFEELS.

They talked about Danila and Dom’s kissing scenes, their first meeting, the fans, the movie…

And you can watch it right here:

It was great to learn a bit more about the movie and above all, to see our Rose and Lissa in the flesh, looking the part.

Be prepared because the VAPartyWeek continues!

MTV have also released their set visit below (it had us laughing so much) and Comic Con is tomorrow guys, at 11am EST Time/4pm UK Time, so stay tuned!
