Just when you thought the vampire movies were dunzo for a while, this trailer comes out. That being said, it actually looks really good and way more intense than Twilight. Perhaps that has something to do with the fact that it’s directed by the same guy who did Interview With A Vampire – Neil Jordan. Obviously, he knows vampire movies.
Byzantium stars Gemma Arterton and Saoirse Ronan as mother and daughter vampires whose epic drama spans centuries. The two women seek refuge in an run-down coastal resort called Byzantium. Schoolgirl Elenor becomes friends with Frank and tell him their deadly secret…that they were born 200 years ago and survive on human blood. Can you imagine? “Pinky-swear you won’t tell anyone!” LOL. As their secret starts to spread, their past starts to catch up with them and the consequences could be lethal.
Ronan also stars in The Host among other movies so she’s definitely one actress that’s on her way up! Other familiar faces in Byzantium include Jonny Lee Miller, Caleb Landry Jones and Sam Riley. Check out the trailer for the drama/fantasy/thriller below!
