Vampire Academy Promo Goodies: Part 3

Posted on Updated on

And the promotions continue. The cast did a lot of interviews yesterday and we even got a first look at the sketches of the film’s costume designer, Ruth Myers. Check out all the interviews, videos and articles below.

1. While still in New York yesterday (Thursday, January 30) Sarah Hyland started off with an appearance on Canadian show BT Vancouver to promote the film and spoke about how this film showcases themes of female empowerment and is not about damsels in distress. Watch the interview below –

***

2. Sarah also appeared on The Morning Show where she spoke about the film, particularly training for the character and how her Vampire Academy character is so different from the Modern Family one. Check out the interview below –

***

3. Sarah also visited the offices of fashion and lifestyle magazines, Marie Claire and Vanity Fair for promoting the film.

***

4. Over in Texas, Zoey, Lucy and Dominic appeared on Great Day Houston, where the host, Deborah, fielded questions and the cast replied with fun answers. Watch the interview below –

On the obsession with vampires:

Lucy: I think there has been an obsession with vampires for centuries and its just changing with what the society is going through that time so we’ve gone from ”I want to suck your blood” to pop, teenage vampires who just go to school and want a normal life.”

On the film:

Dominic: It’s the dichotomy of normal teenagers going to a normal high school and the surreal element of the battle for good and evil and the supernatural.

On acting:

Zoey: Acting is my passion, it is what i want to do forever, and also I have no other skills.

Dominic: [speaking about the spark that ignited a passion for acting] I used to watch a lot of Disney films and I used to watch Prince Charming and him getting the girl and I was like that’s what I want to be when I grow up.

On the film:

Dominic: I just saw it yesterday, they sent it to my hotel room but I’m one of the worst people, because I watch myself and go [groans] “I look like that”, “I sound funny”, “I was doing that with my face”, “I just look terrible”. So I just watched the entire movie and came out with a poor sense of self esteem. [Co-stars] are great, it’s amazing to see Sarah and Cameron and all the others, because I only had scenes with [Lucy and Zoey] and not with anyone else, so to see all the other guys and all the bits that I had actually read in the script and actually have them put them up on its feet is actually really cool and good to see.

Zoey: I have seen it and it is such a fun film, it’s not what people expect it to be and it’s really a good date movie. There is something for the guys, there’s action, it’s sexy, it’s funny … I really think it has something for everybody … and it’s a fun film.

Lucy: Yeah it’s a movie you go to see to have fun and the comedy in it plays really well juxtaposed with the kind of darkness of the academy and I think that’s kind of one of the really interesting things about it, it’s such a dark setting and it’s got this mystery of vampires in this historical school then it’s so light and it’s got this energy bouncing off of each other and it’s got this momentum and I think it’s the kind of film you go and see and it’s got the perfect mixture of all the elements of action and comedy and drama.

Check out some of these screen caps below –

5. Zoey then headed over for an interview on the airwaves with radio channel 99.7 [NOW!]. Listen to her interview below –

When asked if she was a badass, Zoey said “I’m definitely not. There was a lot of training, actually three and a half months of gym, kickboxing, martial arts training and stunt choreography but afterwards i definitely felt prepared that I had something to work.” On Rose, Zoey described her as strong and added, “Emotionally I find strength in her vulnerability, in her loyalty to her best friend, in her ability to make mistakes, acknowledge them and move forward.” She also added, “Lucy and I, strangely enough, have a very similar relationship in real life to the relationship in the film.” Make sure you hear the full interview above.

6. Ruth Myers, the costume designer for Vampire Academy, revealed her sketches for Rose’s training outfit, the dance dress as well as Dimitri’s duster. She also shared her costume making process from sketch to reality. Check out the article on E! Online and the photos below –

7. Tearaway NZ published an interview with author Richelle Mead where she talked about creating the world of Vampire Academy, writing from the point of view of Sydney in Bloodlines as well as her thoughts on the movie. Check out a few of her answers below, and make sure to read the full interview at the link given above.

Why vampires? What made you decide to write about vampires specifically?

Richelle: Before I wrote Vampire Academy, I’d already started two adult series, one about demons and one about fairies. I needed a new paranormal creature to work with for my teen series, and vampires fit the bill, especially after I’d studied Eastern European folklore at college. I’d learned some great Romanian vampire myths that I liked, so I decided to try working them into a series. At the time this was happening, vampires hadn’t hit their current phase of popularity, so I had no idea what I was getting into. It was very lucky timing.

What do you think of the movie being made of Vampire Academy? Any complaints or disappointments? Are you excited and have you been involved much in it?

Richelle: The movie’s been a lot of fun, and overall, I’m really pleased with it. My role has mostly been advisory, which is pretty normal for authors. I’m a book expert, and the movie people are movie experts, so I’m happy letting them do their jobs. It’s great that they do consult with me, though, and I’ve been asked questions about costumes or if certain changes will affect future books. Some authors never get asked that, so I’m super grateful they bring my opinion in. Books and movies are very different mediums, so changes are inevitable, but we’re pretty lucky in that most changes that have been made are small and are for the sake of time or to make something more interesting on the screen. All the main plot points are still there. And I can’t say enough about how wonderful the cast is. They look like their characters, but more importantly, they really understand their characters. In fact, some of them have the same personalities in real life! It’s been amazing watching them bring these roles to life and see how much they really love being part of the movie.

8. Lucy Fry did an interview on The Better Show, where she talked about getting the part in Vampire Academy, Mark Waters attention to detail, hiding from the sun to shoot as a pale Moroi as well as her experience on her upcoming film Now Add Honey with Portia de Rossi where she, an Australian, plays an American girl trying to adjust to life in Australia. Watch the interview below –

9. A new TV Spot was seen and includes a couple of new scenes and extended dialogue, especially Rose’s “To get to her, you’ll have to go through me.” Watch it below and see if you can spot something new!

10. Another really fun article with Zoey and Lucy at Buzzfeed headquarters has us laughing in splits! We learnt some great things about these two, some of which are listed below –

How did you celebrate getting your roles?

LF: I went to Pinkberry with my friends.
ZD: I’m very boring. I went out to dinner with my family.

If you had to give a superlative to Danila Kozlovsky what would it be?

LF: Best man (laughs).
ZD: Yeah.

New Trailer: “The Fault In Our Stars”

Posted on Updated on

title

ERMAGAD! The trailer for The Fault in our Stars, after being leaked earlier this week, is finally here in all its HD glory, though still a little earlier than previously anticipated. Watch it below and keep a tissue box handy. Also, spoilers ahead [seriously, read the book].

After a long wait, as the fans grew increasingly impatient and John Green became quite vocal about his situation …

… the trailer finally made it’s debut and became a worldwide trending topic!

Some screencaps from the trailer, which was a full 2 minutes and 30 seconds heart warming and heart breaking at the same time!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

So many of these scenes are just like what we imagined. The best part is that we can really recognise these scenes from the book and as book fans, what more do we want? John Green’s book was full of awesome quotes and the trailer was no different.

3Hazel’s Mom: “Hey, make some friends.”

Hazel [after bumping into Augustus]: “Sorry.”
Augustus/Gus [cheekily smiling]: “My bad.”
Hazel: [smiles like a fangirl].

oblivion

Gus: “My fears? Oblivion.”

Gus: “What’s your name?”
Hazel: “Hazel.”
Gus: “What’s your full name?”
Hazel: “Hazel Grace Lancaster. Why are you staring at me?”
Gus: “Cos you’re beautiful.”
Hazel: [blushes like a fangirl].

ansel gus

Gus: “I hope you realise, that you trying to keep your distance from me, in no way lessens my affection for you.”

im a grenade

Hazel: “Gus I’m a grenade …

“… One day I’m going to blow up … and I’m going to obliterate everything in my wake … “

sad 4

” … And i don’t want to hurt you.”

i reject that

 Gus: “I reject that.”

hurt

Gus: “You don’t get to choose who you hurt in this world but you do have a say in who hurts you.”

im in love with you

Gus: “I’m in love with you Hazel Grace, and I know that love is just a shout into the void
and that oblivion is inevitable … and I’m in love with you.”

hazel cries

[It’s impossible not to get teary after that]

gus and hazel

Hazel: “We are a hot mess.”

isaac and hazel angry

Isaac: “Are you angry?”
Hazel: “So angry.”
[You guys … their dresses, it looks like THAT scene].

gang 1Gus: “You need to break something.”
[Also … Nat Wolf is killing it as Isaac]

hazel cries 2

Hazel: “He gave me a forever within the numbered days
and I can’t tell you how thankful I am for our little infinity.”

If we are crying … you should be crying too.

okay 1

Okay?

okay 2

Okay.

NO I AM NOT OKAY!

Here is the song used in the trailer, OneRepublic’s “What You Wanted”. Listen to it while I gather my thoughts and feels.

***

We love the look of the film and especially LOVE that they’ve kept so many lines from the book. Shailene Woodley nails Hazel’s inner turmoil and attitude but the only thing I’m still wondering about her performance is if she made Hazel into an extrovert. At least in my head, Hazel was an introvert and a little shy and introverts don’t sit like this –

hazel chair

Ansel Elgort certainly captures the charm and cuteness that is Augustus Waters and does pull off the teenage look in most scenes. But in some scenes, the two leads do look a little older than your average teenagers. Don’t mind me, guys … I’m pretty sure I will love the film and their performances. However, someone who has stolen the show is Nat Wolf as Isaac especially in the egg throwing scene. Laura Dern and Sam Trammell as Hazel’s parents, play the part of her heartbroken parents well. Notably missing in the trailer are references to Peter van Houten (played by William Dafoe) and Gus’ cigarette metaphor, which we are dying to see. All in all, I’d be lying if I said that the trailer didn’t tug at my heart strings and water my nose. I’d be lying a lot! The film releases on June 6, 2014 and as a parting gift, we’ll give you one for the road –

Gus: “It’s a good life, Hazel Grace.”

… and another one for tumblr … we made it especially for you!

Did you cry? Be honest.

Two New Vampire Academy Trailers Add Serious Tone!

Posted on Updated on

Not every fan was pleased when the Vampire Academy trailers released to general audiences these past few months, as the marketing for the film showcased a comic angle. Tonight, however, all those naysayers will have to bow down to the two new TV spots released for Vampire Academy which highlight the dark, serious and action packed tones that convey the true sense of the book to the fans.

Here are the trailers …

“Last Stand”

“Trust”

And as always …. we bring you our reactions!!

The first trailer “Last Stand” starts off with the ominous trailer voice explaining the scenario, the lighting is so much darker in tone with these shots of the school and the surrounding woods.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

And the dhampir classes! Guardian Alberta, who has actually been renamed as Guardian Gabriela for the film, is shown conducting classes and what a badass. Meanwhile, elsewhere, Guardian Belikov is tutoring his favourite student … tsk tsk! All these classes taking place against the backdrop of St. Vladimir’s Academy provide some beautiful shots.

Lets take a moment to look at Guardian Belikov. The first still, when Guardian Gabriela (Alberta) asks if they should call for backup, he coolly shrugs her off with a ‘no’ and proceeds to take down the bad guys!

25

And then he has time to go romance off, looking all muscular and chiseled and OHMYGAAAADDDD I can’t breathe!!!

In all the stills and clips that I have seen, I can tell that Zoey Deutch embodies Rose so perfectly, it is becoming increasingly difficult to separate the two. And you guys, that moment with the music and trailer voice in the background, she turns around and her ponytail does this swivel, and its so EPIC!!!

31

Psychic bond time, but it’s not something pleasant that Rose is seeing this time! Lissa is in trouble!!

Lets talk about these two best friends, throughout the trailer, Rose is being told that she has to protect Lissa, and she does, throwing herself in front of her best friend to protect her from the Guardians, in a scene that mirrors the book!

Talking about the beginning of the book, lets take a moment to discuss this scene. Methinks a strigoi attack takes place on the convoy that is bringing the girls back to the Academy. Not from the book, but it definitely ups the ante for the film!

2Now this is a beautiful shot of Lissa in the Church attic and we’ve seen some other images from this scene as shown below …

All in all … this will be an amazing scene for the fans! Hello Christian ❤

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Speaking of Christian, look what our favourite magic user does!

33

Speaking of school hotties … Hello Jesse!

15

Oh look … it’s crazy Karp giving the girls a warning!

10

Viktor seems to be doing the same thing … all this talk of boogeyman lurking by!

Except that in this story … the boogeymen are the Strigoi … and I seriously hope these scenes are at the end of the film, as the camera pans out to show the threat of Strigoi lurking by!

22

However, if those scenes of Strigoi have anything to do with a school attack … which DOES NOT take place in the first book … there are some fans who will actually want blood …
(seriously guys … what is this? a flashback?)

3

And we are going to take blood … just like Lissa does here … I think!

title

All in all, I’d say these trailers definitely show us much more about the film, including it’s dark tone, the abundance of action, thrill and seriousness and definitely should give the harsher critics – the loyal book fans – something to look forward to in the film, which now releases a week earlier in United States of America, on February 7.

What did you think of these two trailers?

Vampire Academy release date nears

Posted on Updated on

A very exciting New Year’s for the #VAfamily as they got their first official clip from the upcoming movie.

Our thoughts

Sami has nailed it. She’s got all sides of Mia we were hoping she would achieve. That vulnerability bubbling under the bitchy surface. I hope that settles people’s angst over her hair – we love this Mia!

Okay… DRAGOZERA FEELS. Lucy as Lissa gave us chills.  And the way Christian protects her?

Dominic is just perfect. Defensive and sexy. Swoon…

Rose! The way she just swoops in there… Zoey is absolutely flawless. #HathawaySwag

And of course, the Rose-Mia punch to the nose. This clip was edited, so we can’t wait to see the full scene! A fan-favorite on the big screen. 🙂

One-liners

“I’ll fire-magic you into ASH!”

“Allow me, Mr Ozera.”

“Why are you Dragomirs SUCH drags?!”

With just over a month left to wait until this highly anticipated movie hits the cinemas, we are very happy with this first look at footage!

Thank you to Lucy Fry Source for uploading the clip for international viewers.

Earlier this year we were treated to an epic teaser for the upcoming animation “How to Train Your Dragon 2” which showed Hiccup and Toothless flying high and my has Hiccup become HOT! (We do realize he is an animated character but we don’t really discriminate that way!)

Last week we were treated to the official theatrical trailer and it EPIC!

The film is scheduled to release on June 13, 2014 and the characters are voiced by Jay Baruchel, Gerard Butler, America Ferrerra, Craig Ferguson, Cate Blanchett and Djimon Hounsou among others. The film is directed by Dean DeBlois and produced by Dreamworks Studio. If you haven’t watched the first film, this is the perfect time to catch up before the film hits theatres next Summer!

Official Trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Posted on Updated on

After months of teasing and weeks of anticipation, we finally have an epic, goosebumps-inducing trailer for next Summer’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2! Watch the trailer below in HD.

The film’s synopsis reads as follows,

With the emergence of Electro, Spider-Man must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn, returns, Peter Parker comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: OsCorp.

The trailer starts off with Spider-Man doing a free fall into the city of New York and continues to show his journey as he battles villains, discovers secrets, meets new friends and connects with Gwen. The trailer ends with the tagline “His greatest battle begins.”

1

Just another day for Spider-Man as he free-dives into the city …

2

… contemplates his actions while sitting high up, overlooking the skyline …

[We are loving this view too Andy … I mean Spidey!]

5

… causing traffic jams …

7

… dodging bullets …

3

… and saving the day. You see, just another day folks!

Oh and finally meeting up with his lady friend, Gwen. [We ship these two so much!]

8

Enter old friend, Harry Osborn. He may be a cutie, but we sense something sinister in his eyes!

27

I mean, just look at him, that charm, that smile … he must be a bad boy and bad boys have all the fun!

18

Peter looks to Aunt May for answers, who gives us a memorable line “Secrets have a cost, the truth does too!”

10

Peter sets out to discover the truth and finds his father’s videos.

28

His father says that OsCorp wanted to use his research and they did not have good intentions, so he felt it was his duty to protect the world from what they could be capable of. [Also … comic book Sinister Six nod in the still above.]

22

But Harry literally wants to change the world …

19

Oh OsCorp, as usual you guys are up to no good!

Enter these three bad guys – The Rhino, Green Goblin and Electro!

23

And so the mayhem begins!

13

Peter must make his choices, no matter the cost. *sobs*

20

And these are hard times, for Electro wants to plunge everyone in darkness and also destroy Spider-Man!

24

GOOSEBUMPS, YOU GUYS! I HAVE GOOSEBUMPS ALL OVER!

25

Gwen is in trouble – I do not like this!!!

26

But looks like Spider-Man will save her and the day … right? right? RIGHT?

11

You guys, I love this still, it looks like it is straight out of the pages of a comic book!

4

I like this suit … What’s up Spidey? How you doin’?

21

It’s still a long time to go for the film, but it’s going to be one hell of a wait!

The film stars Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man, Emma Stone as Gwen Stacey, Jamie Foxx as Electro, Dane DeHaan as Harry Osborn, Paul Giamatti as The Rhino, Sally Field as May Parker, Martin Sheen as Ben Parker, Chris Cooper as Norman Osborn, Marton Csokas as Dr. Kafka, Chris Zylka as Flash Thompson and Denis Leary as Captain George Stacey.

The film still has about six months of post production work to complete and will be released on the weekend of May 3, 2014. There may be a whole lot of sceptics out there as far as the reboot is concerned, but I’m really enjoying Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Man and can’t wait to see the film next Summer.

Are you excited for the sequel?

Official Trailer for Pompeii Arrives!

Posted on Updated on

I remember reading a harrowing story of the ancient city of Pompeii for an English Literature class way back in middle school. The city is now going to be immortalized (and then destroyed with lava) on the silver screen with eye-candy Kit Harington (Game of Thrones) playing the lead. The synopsis of the film reads as follows:

Set in 79 A.D., Pompeii tells the story of Milo (Kit Harington), a slave turned invincible gladiator who finds himself in a race against time to save his true love Cassia (Emily Browning), the beautiful daughter of a wealthy merchant who has been unwillingly betrothed to a corrupt Roman Senator. As Mount Vesuvius erupts, Milo must fight his way out of the arena in order to save his beloved as the once magnificent Pompeii crumbles around him.

A few months ago, we were teased with a footage of Kit Harrington walking amidst smoke and ashes and today, the full theatrical trailer is available for our viewing pleasure, below:

And as always, our reactions follow:

1

Our first glimpse of the ominous Mt. Vesuvius, waiting, silently, patiently, in the background, like a predator.

2

The prey in this scenario – the prosperous city of Pompeii.

Shots of Pompeii to establish how it was the jewel of the empire.

8

The gladiators are IN DA HOUSE!

7

Uhm … okay, can Jon Snow please come down to Southern Westeros next season. Just saying, because he’s always so bundled up in the North!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Let the games begin … in the rain, for dramatic effect!

10

But not all is well in Pompeii, not when those pesky Roman senators come marching in!

12

AND HOLY COW IT’S CAPTAIN RENARD FROM GRIMM!! 

I have just exploded from feels, you guys!

So yeah, corruption and injustice are just in the air in Pompeii!

18

But so is love …

16

as well as friendship (s/n – Kit should stay semi-nude throughout the film)

19

But alas my friend, love and friendship aren’t enough to appease the gods, Vesuvius is getting angry!

20

And the skies get dark as though it was night!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Some cool pyrotechnics, you guys, Vesuvius is trying to compete with New Year’s Eve fireworks!

23

Smoke and ash fill the sky …

30

Cities fall …

27

and the oceans (technically, the sea) rise …

28

It’s all going down in 3D you guys … an epic, period, disaster film, coming in February!

The film also stars Jared Harris as Lucretius, Jessica Lucas as Ariadne, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Bridgageous, Carrie-Anne Moss as Cassia’s mother, Paz Vega as Flavia, Joe Pingue as Graecus and Sasha Roiz as Proculus. The film has been directed by Paul W.S. Anderson, known for the Resident Evil series.

The story looks epic, the action looks good and the special effects look spine-chilling! Plus, the chance to see Kit Harington’s lovely abs *sigh* … I know I will definitely be lining up for this film!

Are you excited for Pompeii?

Horror-themed “Teen Wolf” Trailers hits the Web!

Posted on Updated on

Our favourite werewolves and werewolf hunters are back on January 6, 2014. If you caught the mid-season finale of Teen Wolf a few months ago, then you know that shizz has been going down and brewing up in Beacon Hills.

The trailers for Season 3B have been doing the rounds and they are nothing short of CREEPY!! The trailers use themes of horror, mystery and ominous foretelling to show us what is coming up next month! They also feature a song sung by a [creepy] little girl with the lyrics “Life is but a dream” playing out as the teasers end. All of them end with the tag line “Lose Your Mind”.

Stiles Stilinski’s teaser below shows images of bodies pressing onto a white curtain, a classroom full of students communicating with sign language and Stiles losing his mind on a football field with the lights glaring into his eyes as he shouts “WAKE UP”!

Scott McCall’s teaser below shows images of flies on a cadavar, him lying, bleeding on a table and Stiles and Lydia trying to wake up him up.

Allison Argent’s teaser below, is by far the creepiest and shows her entering a morgue with someone behind her (that someone looks like Allison herself) and as the lights go off, Allison walks toward an open drawer, through which she sees someone crawling up. Guys, I’m not going to be able to sleep tonight!

The complete trailer for the second half of the season is embedded below:

Now, the above trailer amps up the horror level in a way I didn’t think was possible, not after the character teasers posted above, and here are our reactions:

1

So someone is walking down a dark corridor, with water running all over the floor.

2

Lydia is trying to scream, but her lips are sealed shut.

3

Allison is petting a wolf like it’s her stuffed toy, but it does look a little lifeless!

4

Whose bloody hands are these?

9

Someone is trying very hard to wake up.

5

Who is Sheriff Stilinski trying to reassure with the “This isn’t you” line?

6

Guess what will be abundant in my nightmares tonight?

7

The person walking through the corridor has finally arrived in to a room with Scott, who also mutters the line “This isn’t you”.

8And BAM! The “You” is none other than Stiles! You guys, Stiles with bloody hands and blood around his mouth, who finally tells his reflection “This is you”.

SPECULATION

Notably missing from the trailer is our favourite wolves, Isaac (Daniel Sharman) and Derek (Tyler Hoechlin), who at the end of Season 3A, left town with his sister Cora, but we have a positive feeling that he’ll show up, and Isaac will still be around (hopefully not in a love triangle with Allison and Scott).

So what is going on you guys? Is this sleep-hypnosis-horror situation a direct result of the sleep journey that Scott, Stiles and Allison undertook at the end of Season 3A to save their loved ones, or is there something else at play in Beacon Hills!

It is clear from these trailers that everyone is losing their mind, as are we, because though January 6 is a little over a month away, we can hardly wait.

Our Divergent Trailer Reactions!

Posted on Updated on

The theatrical trailer for the upcoming adaptation for Divergent released on November 13, 2013 and we for one reason or another, we couldn’t bring you our reactions – but fear not initiates, for here they are, better late than never we say!

Check out this trailer below :

And our reactions, excuse the fangirling that will ensue … but tread carefully, spoilers from the book ahead!

1

We start off with a picturesque view of sunrise over the field.

A shot of Mrs. Prior cutting Beatrice’s golden locks and tying her hair into an Abnegation bun – straight from the books, folks!

6

The skyline of a dystopian Chicago.

7

From the far side, Erudite (blue), Abnegation (grey), Candor (black and white) and Amity (red and yellow) initiates line up before the building. Where are the Dauntless in black you ask?

8

Why … the Dauntless are jumping out of the trains!

9

Seems like the Choosing Ceremony speech is being given by Jeanine Matthews in the film!

10

It may be the post-apocalyptic world, but it doesn’t mean that you forget to use fake eyelashes and mascara!

One of the simulations in which Tris wakes up – even though this was paired with her test simulation in the trailer, we are pretty sure it’s from another point in the film.

15

Tris, the first jumper, jumps right in!

16

And look who is waiting there to greet her!

17

We know Tris, we know, we would be in the same condition if we met Four.

19

Lets just address the fact that Four is a BOSS when it comes to training new initiates!

21

Bad Peter, very bad!

22

Do you feel the tingles?!

23

Tris sure does!

24

Tris volunteers for the knife-throwing!

26

And Four goes all out!

27

“I want to be Brave and Selfless and Intelligent and Honest and Kind.” *Melts and then dies*

29

Oh the Dauntless, if they aren’t leaping into or out of the trains, then they are hanging on to them!

Some scenes from the climax of the film.

The Dauntless headquarters has been so perfectly carved out from our imagination!

34

THE FEELS!! YOU GUYS! THE FEELSSSSSSS!!

33

You guys, probably one of my favourite parts of the book!

35

and another favourite – the ziplining scene!

So tell us which were your favourite parts from the trailer and which scenes are you excited to see when the film comes out on March 21, 2014?

Also check out the official poster featuring Four and Tris below –

Divergent-poster

The colours, the tagline, the two leads and a view of dystopian Chicago – we can hardly wait!

From Jesse trying to have his way, to Dimitri’s *SWOOOOON* gaze, Mason’s fighting skills to Aaron’s puppy dog eyes and Christian stealing the spotlight …. it’s going to be a busy film!

ROSE HATHAWAY, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN!

So, Rose is one of a kind … her lines from the trailer are witty, her expressions are fierce and her passion (while dancing with Jesse or lusting with Dimitri) are OFF THE CHARTS!

ALSO YOU GUYS … THE LINE “So I heard you can take two guys at once” IS FROM THE BOOK!!!!

DIMITRI IS EVERYWHERE

Contrary to popular belief, Dimitri can be found lurking around throughout the trailer!

AND THE SPECIAL STUFF!

The still of Christian on the ground trying to use fire looks like its from the climax scenes.

SO FREAKING HAPPY ABOUT THESE PSI-HOUNDS! GUYS – WE GOT THE PSI-HOUNDS!

OKAY! Notice Rose’s eyes? They are glazed over – she is inside Lissa’s Head!!!!!

AND BAM …. That is Vampire Academy … the first one! Set in a high school, with hot boys, mean girls, and BEST FRIENDS FOREVER! Add to that hot Russian mentor, a crazy supernatural world, all the action and mystery … and we are set for the most EPIC YA adaptation of 2014!!

You guys … I want the film out NOW, but our wait is less than three months, so maybe I’ll hang on!

Check out some cast reactions to the trailer (which is basically these two fooling around and not realizing they are both in love with Lissa Dragomir!)

And finally, check out the songs from the trailer:

“Kill of the Night” by Gin Wigmore

“Matangi” by M.I.A.
