'Mean Girls' 10-year anniversary: Damian, Gretchen, Kevin G., and more look back

Mean Girls may now be one of the Internet’s favorite movies — just look at Twitter whenever the film airs on cable — but it was anything but a surefire hit while in production.

“It was my first movie. I was pretty young,” Rajiv Surendra, who portrayed mathlete Kevin G. in the film, tells EW. “[The hair stylist] had worked on really big films that had been shot in Toronto. I remember asking her, ‘How do you think this movie is going to fare?’ and she said, ‘Come on. It’s called Mean Girls and it’s starring Lindsay Lohan. It’s going straight to DVD.'” READ FULL STORY

'Vampire Academy': 5 new photos with director's notes -- EXCLUSIVE

The movie adaptation of Richelle Mead’s popular YA series, Vampire Academy, doesn’t hit the big screen until Feb. 14. And fans are out for blood…or at least any and all information about the Zoey Deutch-led film. If you’re not familiar with the novels, Vampire Academy (the first of six books) follows Rose Hathaway (Deutch), a Dhampir training to be the guardian for her vampire best-friend, Lissa Dragomir (Lucy Fry). The story comes complete with a sexy, but forbidden love interest for Rose, Dimitri Belikov played by Danila Kozlovsky.

The movie’s director Mark Waters (Mean Girls) talked us through each image. Check out the gallery to read more.

Why 'Vampire Academy' is not 'Twilight': Director Mark Waters explains

Best friends bonded by an ancient tradition — one a full vampire who ranks pretty high on the food chain, the other a half human, half vampire bound to protect her — and a prep school filled with the usual teenage dramas with a twist: You must fight to survive.

Does this sound like Twilight? We didn’t think so.

Although the film features our favorite fanged friends, the Vampire Academy series is a totally new take on the vampire legend — and a fresh face in the competitive world of movies based on YA novels. Director Mark Waters talked to EW about his 2013 film and how it will set itself apart in a crowded landscape.

Twilight was about a naive person who knew nothing of a certain world, basically discovering that this world existed and totally being indoctrinated into it and falling in love with a vampire, which is interesting,” Waters said. “It’s also different from Harry Potter in that sense. This is about two people who are deeply embedded in this world, and the audience is the one who is taking the journey of being transported and learning about it for the first time while the characters are deeply, deeply in it and trying to just live and survive day to day within this world.”

Waters also told moviegoers to get the image of brooding vampire teens out of their heads: These characters aren’t all doom and gloom.
