Dominique Pinon joins DuhLess 2

30 July 2014 2:54 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

French actor Dominique Pinon and Serbia’s Milos Bikovic have joined the cast of Roman Prygunov’s DuhLess 2, the sequel to his 2012 box-office success based on Sergey Minaev’s eponymous novel.

Veteran Pinon is known to international audiences for roles in such classics as Diva, Amelie From Montmartre and Delicatessen, while 26 year-old Bikovic appeared in the football films Montevideo - God Bless You! and its sequel as well as Nikita Mikhalkov’s forthcoming Bunin adaptation, Sunstroke.

The sequel by Art Pictures Studio and Kinoslovo is headlined again by Danila Kozlovsky, known popularly as ¨Russia’s answer to Brad Pitt¨ who has recently broken into the international film scene with his role in Vampire Academy.

Kozlovsky reprises his role as top manager Max Andreev who has left the hustle and bustle of Moscow behind for the quiet life on the Indonesian island of Bali until events back home lead him to head for Russia.

DVD Review – Vampire Academy (2014)

14 July 2014 3:56 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Vampire Academy, 2014

Directed by Mark Waters

Starring Zoey Deutch, Lucy Fry, Danila Kozlovsky, Gabriel Byrne, Dominic Sherwood, Olga Kurylenko, Sarah Hyland and Cameron Monaghan

Synopsis:

Rose Hathaway is a Dhampir, half human-half vampire, a guardian of the Moroi, peaceful, mortal vampires living discreetly within our world. Her calling is to protect the Moroi from bloodthirsty, immortal Vampires, the Strigoi.

Based off the book series of the same name, Vampire Academy is basically Twilight meets Harry Potter and is every bit as lazy as it sounds. It’s lack of subtly, terrible acting and dreadful script are just a few reasons as to why Vampire Academy fails so badly. Given a cinema release in the States but released straight-to-dvd in the UK, this is a movie that even the easily-led Ya Enthusiasts would struggle to find positives.

Vampire Academy sees two teenage girls on the run from their school for vampires. »

Bondarchuk says Battalion will top Stalingrad

27 June 2014 4:56 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Stalingrad 3D’s producer-director Fyodor Bondarchuk has a Us major in his sights for the national and international distribution of the forthcoming  Russian war film, Battalion Of Death, set during the First World War.

Speaking during a presentation of the first footage of Dmitry Meshiev’s drama about the women battalions formed in 1917 to fight on the Eastern front against the Germans, Bondarchuk said that negotiations were underway with “a big company” to handle distribution in a way “very similar to Stalingrad.”

The $30m war drama Stalingrad was released in Russian cinemas by Sony Pictures Releasing International on October 10, 2013  and posted the strongest opening weekend ever for a locally produced film with $14.3m from 1,400 screens. In total, the film took $52m (RUB1.75bn) at the Russian box office to become the top release of 2013 and was also a hit for Sony in China with takings of over $11.5m.

‘Vampire Academy’ Review

14 May 2014 9:34 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Zoey Deutch, Lucy Fry, Danila Kozlovsky, Gabriel Byrne, Dominic Sherwood, Olga Kurylenko, Sarah Hyland, Cameron Monaghan, Sami Gayle, Ashley Charles, Claire Foy, Joely Richardson, Dominique Tipper, Edward Holcroft | Written by Daniel Waters | Directed by Mark Waters

Based on the series of novels by Richelle Mead and with a screenplay written by Daniel Waters who also penned the screenplays for the likes of Heathers, Hudson Hawk, Demolition Man and Batman Returns, Vampire Academy is a teenage fantasy drama with a hint of comedy and a speckle of horror and comes at a time when these types of films are, what you might call, all the rage. Directed by Mark Waters, who is no stranger to teenage films as he was behind the camera for movies such as Mean Girls and Freaky Friday and the family fantasy adventure flick The Spiderwick Chronicles.

'Vampire Academy'- Limp and devoid of fangs (Ians Movie Review)

13 February 2014 11:01 PM, PST | RealBollywood.com | See recent RealBollywood news »

Film: "Vampire Academy"; Cast: Zoey Deutch, Lucy Fry, Danila Kozlovsky, Dominic Sherwood, Gabriel Byrne; Director: Mark Waters; Rating: **

Classifying "Vampire Academy" into any one particular genre would be doing injustice to the film. It consists of part paranormal romance, part high school drama, part action with teen adventure and part coming-of-age stories that have been woven together into a predictable generic tale of vampires in St. Vladimir's Academy.

The Academy, a very Hogwartisian style institute in rural Montana houses the Moroi, the Strigoi, the Dhampir and humans. The Moroi are mortal vampires of a noble race who practice magic. They depend on human blood for food and have a code, a society, ethics, and a. »

Film Review: ‘Vampire Academy’

11 February 2014 1:27 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Richelle Mead’s above-average series of young-adult fantasy novels gets a worse-than-perfunctory screen launch with “Vampire Academy,” which not only plays like the crassest possible mashup of “Harry Potter” and “Twilight” elements, but seems designed to make those franchises look like eternal monuments of world culture by comparison. This desperately paced teenage soap opera with fangs is unlikely to spawn the follow-up its fadeout teases, given its wan $3.9 opening weekend. But ancillary sales should help it to eventually recoup.

Wanting to live like ordinary people, Rose (Zoey Deutch) and Lissa (Lucy Fry) have managed a year in the outside world before they’re dragged back to secluded St. Vladimir’s Academy, a very Hogwartsian institution (albeit only for high-school hotties) in rural Montana. There, those of the Moroi (nice vampires with magical powers) and Dhampir (their athletic half-human protectors) races are at least theoretically protected from the predatory Strigoi (superstrong »

Vampire Academy review

Review Ron Hogan 11 Feb 2014 - 06:32

Another much-loved Ya series makes its way to the big screen, but with so many other Ya franchises around, can it find a place for itself?

In the vampire world of Richelle Mead, there are four classes of people (roughly speaking). There are the Moroi, the Strigoi, the Dhampir, and us normal folks. The Moroi are a noble race of creatures that practice magic, who don't like being in the sun - but it doesn't kill them - and who drink human blood for food. Like their food supply, the Moroi are mortals who have a code, a society, ethics, and a higher education system of sorts at St. Vladimir's Academy. The Strigoi are the vampires we're all familiar with: sunlight or a silver stake through the heart will kill them, they live forever, and they feed on unwilling humans while generally going out »

6 February 2014 9:30 AM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

In the upcoming film Vampire Academy (based upon the series of bestselling books by Richelle Mead), Zoey Deutch plays heroine Rose Hathaway. She’s a Dhampir, half human/half vampire, and a guardian of her Moroi best friend, Lissa (Lucy Fry).

Dread Central sat down with Zoey last week, and she told us all about the new movie.

Dread Central: What do you like about this character [Rose Hathaway]?

Zoey Deutch: Oh my gosh. How many times have I answered that question? What did I like about this character... I liked that Rose Hathaway is passionately curious, she's strong-willed, she's loyal to her best friend, she's a fighter - literally and physically - and to me, what I love most about her is her sense of humor and that she uses it as a means of survival and as a defense mechanism. I loved that about her.

'Vampire Academy' Director Mark Waters on 'Twilight' Fatigue, Bad Ya Adaptations, and the Russian Tom Cruise

6 February 2014 9:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"Vampire Academy" director Mark Waters is what you'd call a specialist at movies for and about adolescents. His resume includes the iconic high-school comedy "Mean Girls" as well as "Freaky Friday," "The Spiderwick Chronicles," and the upcoming film adaptation of "Sabrina the Teenage Witch" (the comic, not the TV show). To direct the adaptation of Richelle Mead's best-selling series (about teen vampires at boarding school), Waters -- who once again collaborated with his screenwriter brother Daniel Waters -- decided to stick with the fundamental truth about teens - they take romance and friendship as seriously as life and death. Here's what Waters had to say about vampires, Ya-based movies, and hot Russian actors.

Moviefone: What attracted you to direct "Vampire Academy"?

Mark Waters: It's funny, the whole genre of Ya books being adapted has this thing about them that made them all a little tedious to me; they »

In the upcoming film Vampire Academy (based upon the series of bestselling books by Richelle Mead), Sarah Hyland plays nerdy Natalie, one of the students at the school for fanged folks. Dread Central sat down with Sarah last week, and she told us all about the new movie.

Dread Central: We were just talking about how different you look in this movie. Was that fun for you to transform into this nerdier side?

Sh: It was so much fun! I loved it! I thought that because it's so different from anything that I've ever done. You know when you play someone like Hayley, her standards are a lot higher than Natalie's so I'm always worried like do I have dark circles? Is my hair okay? Do I look pale? Do I have enough blue and contour and all that stupid stuff. But with Natalie I was really able to relax »
