New International Trailer for Byzantium

Byzantium posterWho is looking forward to Neil Jordan’s upcoming vampire flick Byzantium? I know I am, and I cannot wait for the film to hit its June 28th release date. So, with the date looming ever closer, we have scored a brand new International trailer for you guys to check out below.

The film stars Gemma Arterton, Saoirse Ronan, and Sam Riley.

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.”

        Looks ok, but honestly not really happy with the “vampires in the daytime” stuff which seems to be the new take. I like that the traditional Vampires are a night time creature. To me it always adds to the mystique, intrigue and fear of the vampiric character. Hunting in the dark, catching only glimpses of them via torch or car headlight. This also allows for the human characters time and means to destroy said vampires.

        On this, and being new to the site, I dont know if you have done a top 10 (or whatever) vampire movie list, but would love to see one.
