Gabby Here's the new trailer you guys.

I definitely like it a lot better than the first one. What do you guys think? my favorite part is with Rose and Mia and the other of course with Christian:)

Janhavi♥herondale Can i just give you an applause for showing me this trailer, at the rate of work i get everyday i would have never saw this trailer. OMG alot of the weight off my shoulder is lifted off (but not all of it). I can definitely see the fearless and sassy attitude of rose. Some of the scene i didn't recognized. And can we just give a moment to Dimitri's little scene there where he speaks for the 1st time. I hope the movie goes well *finger crossed*

Veronica cannot view it. do not know why...

Parmida Asadi terrible cast. gosh they're gonna ruin these precious books for me. absolutely despise this cast! nothing like the great adaption of city of bones that cast was perfect! i don't think Richelle even bothered enough to make sure this cast is good. very disappointed!
it made VA seem like twilight which is really isn't!
the fangs,god,the fangs were terrible.

J.D. Field For some reason the bitey stuff annoys me. I don't know why...

♥Booklish Reviews♥ I don't like the "Edward Cullen" eyes that Rose gets when she has the bond experience with Lissa. (Aka her getting in the head with the ball, her eyes are golden.) They didn't want Twilight comparisons, yet they went off and did something like that? They're practically screaming for it now.

Nikita Trailer is better than the first. I like that we get to see more characters and heard Dmitri speak, even if it was only one word. Sigh. I like it and still excited to see the movie.

Yue Hmmmph... A bit better than the first trailer, but it keeps bothering me that "comedy" twist. No doubt the Director is the same as the movie Mean Girls.

♥Booklish Reviews♥ The producer, Don Murphy is doing nothing but calling the readers who don't agree with the movie being "perfection", losers ect.

Is he serious? He needs people to see this movie to make up for the cost of making it. Many fans--myself included--are blah about it already and his behavior is making it worse.

♥Booklish Reviews♥ I don't think he really cares how he is behaving. M

Okay, that's extremely childish of him. But are you going to let one jerk ruin the whole thing? From what I've seen, the Waters brothers and all the production respect what the fans are saying. I don't think one person, as bratty as Don Murphy, should represent all of the people that are trying to bring this book to life.

In fact, I just read something one of the other producers had written that was very well-written in comparison:
Ok people, let’s all take a deep breath and catch up on a few things. It’s been awhile since I’ve reached out to the fans directly, and was hoping to get in a few words about what’s been happening and where things are going from here.

First off, the exciting news is we are now in the final stages of finishing the film for it’s worldwide opening this coming February. To explain how this process works, this is what goes on. We have spent the last month, or so, conducting select private screenings of the nearly completed work to random audiences of film fans around the country. This group is comprised of both hard core book fans of the series, as well as the general audience of film fans from all demographics. The reason for this process is to allow the film makers to understand how the general film audiences are reacting to the picture. The questions that are asked after the screenings include, do they understand the story, do they like, or dislike the characters. Do the hard core fans believe we have been faithful to the books, and for those who have never read, or even heard about the series, do they find the film interesting and entertaining.

All of this information is then closely analyzed by the filmmakers, and further work on the film is then made to address whatever problems might be identified. As you might imagine, this is a tedious process wherein final tweaks and other decisions get made to try and find the best balance possible for all the audiences and ensure to both the fans and Distributors that we are delivering the best possible film.

I am now very excited to report, the last results in have indicated we are on the right path, and that this movie now holds great promise of being the big and successful movie we have all worked so hard on for all these years.

The point of all this is to assure all of our loyal and dedicated fans that all is well! Both the hard core fans and the general film market fans have given us the thumbs up!!!!

I now want to talk to the those fans who have expressed, sometimes politely, sometimes not so politely, their concerns, fears and disappointment. The movie they will see, if they only give us the chance, will meet all their expectations and hopes for the film they’ve so long waited to see. I can now say, with the proof we have been waiting for, they will not be disappointed.

Concerning the Teaser Trailer, and the brand new full Trailer just released. Remember one thing. These trailers are produced and presented by the Distributors. You need to also acknowledge, they are very good at what they do. In fact, The Harvey Weinstein Company who are behind these trailers, are recognized as one of the most successful Companies on the planet in doing this work. What is being reflected in that work is years and years of successful marketing and a track record within the industry of Hit, after Hit after Hit. While some of what the concerned fans are seeing might be confusing and not what they expected, these trailers are designed to catch the attention of the whole market, not just the fans who already know the series. The reality of the movie business is this — if all the fans of the book series came out to the see the movie, the movie will be a flop financially, and no more movies in the series will ever get made. That is the hard truth. So the task given to the Distributors is to create trailers that will attract the attention of the broad movie going fans to also come see this movie. That is a BIG mountain to climb. But like I said, we have been especially blessed in this effort by The Weinstein Company stepping forward to help us with this effort and we know, by experience, there is no one better prepared to get this job done.

Trailers are meant to get people interested who would most likely never be interested otherwise. That’s a herculean task in today’s marketplace. So the elements from the film that are assembled for a trailer are to excite, create interest, and make the film look interesting and entertaining. It is not intended as a snap shot of the story of a film, which is totally impossible to do in a minute, but more an example of the type of scenes, setting, and interesting elements they will see in this movie. So those of us who are looking for some kind of literal representation of this work, just really don’t understand how all of this works.

The Producers and filmmakers from day one have been dedicated to making this movie one the best adaptations of any book series ever made. Richelle herself has been involved creatively from the beginning. More importantly, she has already assured all of her fans that they will not be disappointed.

We do understand how important this story is to hundred’s of thousand’s of fans around the world. We have worked long and hard, overcome many obstacles and problems involved in getting the “RIGHT” film made to deliver on that commitment. Furthermore, having now shown this film to over 1000 fans, the results are in. They LOVE IT! and I promise you, if you are a true fan of the series, you will too!

I’m counting on each and everyone of you to stick with us on this. You have my personal promise you will not regret it!

Once again, thank you all for your support and participation. It helped us throughout the process of making this film, and when you see the final results, I promise you, we will not disappoint.

See you at the movies.

All my best,

Mike Preger

I think everyone should just calm down until the movie actually comes out, an then judge it then.

Emily I don't know why but I don't really like the trailer. It might be because there were so many "funny" bits that I just didn't find funny. I'm trying to keep an open mind because Vampire Academy is one of my favourite book series.
I think there is some bad acting from just seeing the trailer. Lucy's (Lissa) accent in this is so fake. It doesn't sound right at all.
I'm going to see the film when it comes out, and hope I get proved wrong about their acting.

Yeah, I agree. It makes VA look kinda trashy.

Mehvish I loved the books and was really excited for the movie but is it just me or does it feel like something is missing from the character. Thanks for the trailer it looks better then the first, still 50/50 about the movie though.
