We're exceptionally excited to see the first ever clip from director Neil Jordan's (High Spirits, Interview with the Vampire) return to the vampire genre, Byzantium. The film stars the insanely gorgeous Gemma Arterton and she-with-the-eyes-that-haunt, Saoirse Ronan. Both will be playing vampires. Heck yeah! Here's the first clip.
Byzantium is making its debut at the Toronto International Film Fest, and reviews should start leaking out soon. But until the official release — which hasn't been set yet — you'll have to make do with this synopsis and collection of stills.
Two mysterious women seek refuge in a run-down coastal resort. Clara meets lonely Noel, who provides shelter in his deserted guesthouse, Byzantium. Schoolgirl Eleanor befriends Frank and tells him their lethal secret. They were born 200 years ago and survive on human blood. As knowledge of their secret spreads, their past catches up on them with deathly consequence.
