Gemma Arterton trades hunting witches for vacationing with vampires in Byzantium

Trailer FrenzyA special place to find the newest trailers for movies and TV shows you're craving.

We've already talked about Byzantium as one of the most promising flicks of the year, thanks to the lovely Gemma Arterton, who takes a more dramatic look at the world of the supernatural than she did in Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, as well as director Neil Jordan, who returns to the world of sexy vampires for the first time since he directed Interview with the Vampire. Interestingly, in Interview, Tom Cruise wore a ridiculous, long-haired wig, while in Byzantium, Jonny Lee Miller seems to be wearing the exact same style of completely fake-looking hair. Coincidence?! Yeah, probably.

Holy crap this looks amazing. I love the combination of the multi-generational historical drama with vampirism. For once, vampires serve a metaphorical purpose that's actually complicated and interesting.
