“Vampire Academy” movie opened in seventh place at the box-office in 2014. The thriller drama film grabbed $4 million in its opening weekend and $15 million in total. The film did not get enough response from the box-office and its chances for a sequel were not good. To make the film happen, the producing team of “Vampire Academy” launched a campaign page. But now it seems like, it is not going to happen. Read on for more details.
The “Vampire Academy” producing team have launched an IndieGoGo campaign in an effort to get a possible sequel. According to the campaign’s page, the majority of Frostbite movies were funded by the public. However, in order to go along with “Vampire Academy 2,” the team need to raise $1.5 million. The campaign launched on Aug. 6, 2014. But it seems that the team was not able to raise the desired fund.
The producer of “Vampire Academy,” posted an official statement on his Facebook page. In his official statement, the producer thanked all those who helped in spreading the word. He also thanked everyone who contributed in Frostbite and helping the production team to continue making the Vampire series.
“We did not receive the required contribution, therefore, those who contributed on Indiegogo, if you have not already received your refunds, you will shortly. To those who bid on our eBay auctions, you will still receive your winning items,” the producer added.
According to Movie Pilot, the official Facebook page of “Vampire Academy” has over 300,000 fans and the team only managed to raise a mere 17%. The same statistics came for their Twitter page. The official Twitter Page has over 48,000 followers and the team managed to raise 17% only.
The biggest reason the first movie did so horribly is that there was not enough advertising for it. The only reasons fans knew that the series was getting a movie adaptation was because of Richelle Meads website. Otherwise at that time, there were only two commercials for it on television and it was just a week before the film released. If that could have done properly, we think that that there were chances that a concept like this would have got its own movie franchise.
