I know what everyone is wondering. Is there anyway that Vampire Academy will have a film sequel in the making? It's not looking too good folks. Vampire Academy under-performed at box office and according to wikipedia  only made $3.9 million in its opening weekend. The film later opened in a further 12 countries but barely passed the $1 million mark, grossing just $619,381. As of February 16, 2014, the film had grossed $6.6 million, with many suggesting that poor box office returns will effectively end any plans for a sequel. After a month of theatrical release in the US, Vampire Academy grossed just $8 million at the box office. The movie was expected to be a big hit in both Australia and Russia, but only made $600,000 and $900,000 respectively. As of March 13, 2014, the film had grossed just $12,082,552 worldwide.
Vampire Academy was not screened for critics,and has received negative reviews. The film currently holds a 10% rating on Rotten Tomatoes based on 39 reviews.The consensus states: "Though it may appeal to its built-in fanbase, Vampire Academy's Twilight-meets-Mean Girls conceit borrows lazily from its predecessors and offers few laughs or thrills to complement its overstuffed backstory."
Ouch! By the looks of it. It won't continue on as a franchise. I feel the pain VA fans. Comment down below on what you thought of the movie and whether there should be a second one. There are already petitions swarming the internet for the second movie as we speak. So we want to know what you think!

  1. I just jumped on the bandwagon because I wanted to know what all the hype was. Read the first book, and it was enjoyable but not as great as everyone made it out to be. I haven't watched the film yet - it didn't really appeal to me, but I do want to know if it sucks that much. One of my friends said it was very funny!

    Thanks for sharing this news! Did not realise the film was doing that badly. :(
