Vampire AcademyAfter a tantalizing taste, we can finally (fully) bite into the first trailer for "Vampire Academy," thanks to a first look on Yahoo!

Ahead of its premiere, author Richelle Mead speculated via Twitter that most reactions would be along the lines of "!!!omg*flail*!!!mustwatchagain!!!" and, well, it's like she can read our minds or something. The trailer boasts plenty of fan-favorite moments, and we certainly have our own list of scenes we took a shine to.

To that end, keep reading after the jump for the five things we loved most about this first look at "Vampire Academy"!

Cassandra Clare"The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones" opens in theaters next week, but as the teenage demon slayers prepare to debut on the big screen, the author who created the franchise is wrapping up their stories in print. Cassandra Clare told Hollywood Crush this weekend that she’s hard at work on the final book in "The Mortal Instruments" series. But that doesn't mean we’ll see the end of the Shadowhunter world: Cassie’s already created an in-depth outline of her new trilogy, “The Dark Artifices.”

"I know exactly what’s going to happen," she said of the new series, which will take place in Los Angeles five years after the conclusion of the "TMI" books. "I’m still wrapping up the last book in the ‘Mortal Instruments’ series and the characters of ‘The Dark Artifices’ are introduced in it."

Vampire AcademyWith the "Vampire Academy: Blood Sisters" teaser trailer debut just hours away, the Weinstein Company is whetting our appetite for all things St. Vlad's with a handful of first look images that debuted this morning at USA Today.

All three feature "Beautiful Creatures" actress Zoey Deutch as Rose Hathaway, the badass bodyguard-in-training at the heart of Richelle Mead's best-selling book series. The story follows Rose as she returns to school after having run away with her best friend, Moroi princess Lissa (Lucy). But the dangers that sent them fleeing in the first place seem to have returned, and Rose must protect Lissa from a mysterious foe who wants her gone. Of course, in between all that mortal peril, there may just be a few cute boys waiting in the wings to complicate things. (A certain Russian mentor comes to mind...)

When we talked to Zoey earlier this year before shooting began on "Vampire Academy" in London, she explained a bit about the tone screenwriter Daniel Waters and director Mark Waters were aiming for.

Vampire DiariesElena and Caroline are getting the full college experience when "The Vampire Diaries" returns on October 3—or at least the full TV college experience. The Mystic Falls BFFs will move in together when they matriculate at Whitmore College in season five, which, as we've learned through many years of TV-watching, means parties, hot boys and inordinately large dorm rooms.

"Look, we can all joke about it, but in order for a scene to look good, you need a lot of space to shoot in—especially when you're a show that shoots on long lenses," executive producer Julie Plec admitted to Hollywood Crush recently. "So yes, our dorm room is a little bigger than the dorm room I had in college."

But that doesn't mean it's not gonna be awesome. "We establish a university that's old and steeped in tradition and it's been around for a while, and the room reflects that. It's got the big arched ceilings and a good, old-world feel to it. So you will laugh, because yes, of course it's a little bit bigger than it should be, but we're proud of it."

Let it never be said that kids these days have no taste for excellence in entertainment: The teens have chosen, and chosen wisely! Last night marked the surfboard-distributing excitement of the Teen Choice Awards, with honors going to all the actors, musicians, shows and movies deemed worthy by a mass survey of teenage tastemakers. From "Pitch Perfect" to "Perks of Being a Wallflower," many of our favorites from 2012 got a nod at last night's awards—and from Rebel Wilson in a wetsuit to One Direction in an artfully styled lineup, the arrivals carpet was one major party.

Among those who went home with trophy surfboards last night: Logan Lerman, whose swoon-worthy turn in "Perks" was deemed the best dramatic performance by those in charge, and Rebel Wilson, whose appeal as Fat Amy in "Pitch Perfect" cannot be denied by anyone, of any age, ever. Also: Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder, perennial favorites for "Vampire Diaries," took the Choice acting awards for TV Fantasy/Sci-Fi yet again; and Selena Gomez, who was nominated in half a dozen categories, went home with a pile of surfboards after winning Choice Female Hottie, Breakup Song and Summer Music Star.

Ignite Me by Tahereh MafiThe third and final novel in Tahereh Mafi's enthralling "Shatter Me" series, about a teen girl with a very particular set of superhuman skills, hits bookstore shelves February 2014. Why do we have to wait so long? And ahead of the highly anticipated release, Hollywood Crush is pleased to EXCLUSIVELY debut not only the book's title but also its beautiful cover! Keep reading for a letter from Tahereh herself and the eye-popping artwork!

Hi guys!

I'm so so thrilled to be able to share this final cover with you all. The "Shatter Me" series is swiftly coming to a close, and though it's a bittersweet feeling, I'm anxious for everyone to know how the story will end. Also I'm hoping we can still be friends after you finish reading. Ahem.

If you follow me around the internet, you know I've teased you a lot about what may or may not happen in book 3, but the truth is, most of the time I was just messing with you. What actually happens in the third book is probably almost definitely not what you think is going to happen. (Don't let the title fool you! "Ignite" is so much more than it seems.)

This morning, MTV had the special opportunity—nay, the privilege!—to debut the very first and EXCLUSIVE trailer for "Romeo & Juliet", the most recent big-screen reboot of the classic Shakespearean tragedy. And you'll want to waste no time in getting your peepers on it, because ooooooh, the costumes and sets are sumptuous, and ahhhhhh,
Douglas Booth
has a mouth like a piece of ripe pink fruit, and HEY! That's Sergeant Brody, from "Homeland," playing Juliet's angry dad! Oh man, this is gonna be so great.

The film stars Douglas and Hailee Steinfeld as the titular couple, and the trailer teases many of the moments that those who've read the play (in other words, everybody) are longing to see on screen. The masquerade ball where the pair meet for the first time, the confrontation between Romeo and Mercutio that ends in bloodshed, Juliet on her balcony (also offering a primo look at just how gorgeous this entire film is going to be), and plenty of passionate, yearning exchanges between the two young lovers—not to mention a last-minute clutch appearance of the "happy" dagger that's going to find its tragic home in a certain person's bosom.

Taylor Swift gave fans an inside look into her friendship with Selena Gomez earlier this week. On Monday, which just so happened to be Selena's 21st birthday, the “22” singer tweeted out a photo of the pals chilling near the beach, doing their best mermaid poses.

When we got some time with the lovely Selena to chat about her new album, Stars Dance (out now), she gave us the backstory on the pic.

"It’s actually at her house in Rhode Island. We were in Rhode Island. I ran away for like a weekend, just to go be with her. And we were doing poses and just dancing all around her house, her beautiful, big property,” she recalled. “And it was just amazing. It was so much fun. I love Taylor. She’s the best.”

The bad news, compadres, is this: Dior has teased yet another photo from Robert Pattinson's Dior Homme campaign, and he's not naked in this one, either. BOOOOO. But on the upside, hey! It's a brand new photo from the Pattz's foray into haute couture fragrance spokesmanship! Let's all drool on it!

And like the previous peek from the campaign, this is one drool-worthy shot. The pic, released on Dior's official Twitter feed, shows the beautiful Brit in a contemplative pose atop what looks like a water tower. Rob is handsome as always in dramatic black-and-white, and he looks quite at ease, despite being precariously perched several hundred feet above the earth's surface. Also, the accompanying text reads, "Vibrant, Audacious, Seductive," which adds an intriguing twist to this pretty picture. We don't know exactly what's so audacious and seductive about Robert Pattinson high up on a water tower (except, y'know, the obvious), but we trust you, Dior, and we will totally stick around to find out where you're going with this. Please continue to tease us with delicious Pattinson pictures.
