Vampire Academy trailer feels like maybe this movie could be good?

WAIT! Before you blow off this trailer as part of the teen vampire glu,t know this: Vampire Academy was made by Mean Girls director Mark Waters and adapted by Heathers writer Daniel Waters. Plus the book was pretty great.

Set in a VAMPIRE ACADEMY where vampire royals attend classes with the vampire half-breeds who are trained to protect them, the main character Rose Hathaway is kind of like a badass, Buffy-type lady. But instead of killing vampires, she's tasked with protecting them — specifically, her vampire bestie, Lissa. Most of the story is centered around their relationship instead of a 1,000-year-old immortal lusting after a 17-year-old girl, so that's a bonus.

The new teaser doesn't look like much, but it's a teaser. Either way we're suckers for teenage girls walking around in slo-mo like a pack of evil bitches. Get it, girls! Fingers crossed this one brings back the teen nasty we loved from the director's past.

I hate all the overblown vampire romance novels that pop up all over the place as much as the next person ... but these books are a totally guilty pleasure. There's nothing you haven't seen a thousand times before but I swear these books are like candy. You don't even feel sick afterwards for some strange reason. I'll take Rose Hathaway over Katniss Everdeen any day of the week (It's just a pity that Jennifer Lawrence can't be in ALL the movies).
