New Clip From Byzantium
Neil Jordan's vampire twist

Neil Jordan has a gift for coming up with a fresh take on supernatural characters. He tackled werewolves in The Company Of Wolves, recently took a really interesting approach to a story about selkies in Ondine - and of course made Interview With The Vampire. Now he's back with a very different approach to the blood-sucking undead with Byzantium, which is about to premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival. Here's an exclusive clip from the film.

 

The pair here are Saoirse Ronan's Eleanor and Caleb Landry-Jones' Frank, but the cast also includes Gemma Arterton, Sam Riley, Jonny Lee Miller and Daniel Mays.

The official synopsis describes the plot thusly: "Two mysterious women seek refuge in a run-down coastal resort. Clara (Gemma Arterton) 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."

Byzantium hits the UK in 2013, but there's no confirmed release date as yet. More on this one as we get it.
