A Vampire Academy sequel will happen if YOU open your wallet!

[adrotate banner=”1″]Do you like throwing your money at YA franchises that failed to make it at the box office? Well, Vampire Academy has an offer for you! Despite Vampire Academy not setting the box office afire (or even creating sparks!), Vampire Academy is following in the YA franchise tradition of going ahead with an ill-advised sequel that will lose money. But there’s a twist! The twist is YOU will make up the difference, thus the rich producers will not lose any money, and the Real Fans will feel more involved. It’s win-win, unless you are an innocent bystander, like I am.

As the Facebook Announcement says:

We are excited to announce that we have raised the majority of our funds for FROSTBITE – but there is one small catch (we told you this wouldn’t be easy)…We need proof that the fans truly want to see the franchise continue. And so, we will be launching a crowd funding campaign and putting the power in your hands. More details to come later this week.

So, ‪#‎VAFamily‬ – Are you ready to make history? ‪#‎Frostbite2015‬

No word on if everyone will be back, but I’m thinking thanks to the magic of contractual obligations you can expect everyone. Will this go down the road of the bomb Percy Jackson 2, or the upcoming Mortal Instruments sequel that was delayed because of how bad Mortal Instruments: City of Bones did? We shall see…

Until then, start saving your pennies, because you need to throw money at this failed franchise instead of throwing money at all those other projects posted by actual independent struggling artists!

How about “They suck at sequels!”?

Vampire Academy: Blood Sisters drops trailer

[adrotate banner=”1″]
Vampire Academy: Blood Sisters has dropped a trailer. It’s based on the first book in the Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead. Zoey Deutch, Lucy Fry, and Danila Kozlovsky play the three leads Rose Hathaway, Lissa Dragomir, and Dimitri Belikov. As you can see, there will be a bunch of fangs and biting and teenage girls and throwing, making this look just like True Blood Twilight instead of its own distinct thing..

Rose Hathaway is a Dhampir, half human/vampire, guardians of the Moroi, peaceful, mortal vampires living discretely within our world. Her legacy is to protect the Moroi from bloodthirsty, immortal Vampires, the Strigoi. This is her story.

Also LOL at Mark Waters and Daniel Waters plastering their names all over this, despite their having nothing to do with the novels and no one cares about either of you after Ghosts of Girlfriends Past. Heck, most Mean Girls fans won’t even recognize your name.

For those not down with your YA lit, the six Vampire Academy books are by Richelle Mead, and there is a six-book spinoff series called Bloodlines that’s currently in the middle of being published.

Vampire Academy: Blood Sisters hits theaters February 14, 2014.
