Welcome back to the YA Movie News Roundup! Let's get to rounding up.
A new Vampire Academy trailer has debuted, and I have to tell you guys - I am moderately fascinated by this movie. Hasn't it been about to come out for years now? It feels like actual years. And every clip and trailer is so tonally muddled and hyperactive. I've never read the book and I hate the title, and yet something about the marketing for this film has guaranteed that I will see it, if only to abate my curiosity. It hits theaters February 7.
Lifetime's Flowers in the Attic adaptation, starring Heather Graham and Kiernan Shipka, is finally upon us, and Erin dropped back by FYA to blow our minds with her recap. Overall, the reviews are not good, but did we expect anything else? I haven't seen it yet, but I WILL, next time I'm home alone and bored on a Sunday afternoon, a little tipsy post-brunch cocktails.
Natalie Dormer evidently shaved half her head months ago for her role as Mockingjay's Cressida, but she finally elected to unveil it at the SAG awards. It looks totally bitchin'.
Ever-present YA stud Miles Teller has been offered the role of a young Dan Aykroyd in Emile Hirsch's upcoming John Belushi biopic. High praise!
Here's an interview with Randsom Riggs, author of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children and its sequel Hollow City, both headed to theaters.
The controversial James Frey - he of the fabricated addiction memoir A Million Little Pieces, who was shamed by none other than La Oprah herself - has a YA book and movie deal for his new Hunger Games-esque novel Endgame.
That's it for this week - lay it on me in the comments section!
