Vampire thriller ‘Byzantium’s’ International Trailer

Byzantium imageA new vampire flick is coming from director Neil Jordan who  knows a thing or two about vampires.  In 1994, he brought us the film adaptation of Anne Rice’s Interview With the Vampire, his latest blood-sucker offering is Byzantium and we have the first international trailer for you right here.

Byzantium is directed by Neil Jordan and stars Gemma Arterton (Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters), Saoirse Ronan (The Host), Sam Riley, Jonny Lee Miller (Dark Shadows), Caleb Landry Jones, Tom Hollander, Danny Mays.

IFC has picked up the film for U.S. distribution, there is no word on a release date yet so stay tuned.

Plot Synopsis:

Eleanor and Clara, two mysterious and penniless young women, flee the scene of a violent crime and arrive in a run-down coastal resort. They try to find money and refuge along the tawdry seafront and in the dilapidated hotels.

Clara, ever-practical, sells her body. She soon meets shy and lonely Noel, who provides a roof over their heads in his seedy guesthouse, Byzantium. Clara, always looking towards the future, turns it into a ‘pop-up’ brothel.

Meanwhile Eleanor, the eternal schoolgirl, meets Frank, a kindred spirit who unwittingly prompts her to tell the truth about her life. She tells him that Clara is her mother; yet Clara is only a few years older. She says that she was born in 1804; yet she is just sixteen. She confesses that she must drink human blood to stay alive – and so must her mother. In the small, quiet town, people start to die.

And the past that the girls have been running from for so long, finally catches up with them – with astonishing consequences.
