Byzantium Trailer Online
'You've got secrets... haven't you?'

We’ve been waiting a while for fresh footage from Interview With The Vampire director Neil Jordan’s latest stab at the genre Byzantium, and now here comes the trailer for the film. Take a look below. 

 

Byzantium is the story of Clara (Gemma Arterton) and Eleanor (Saoirse Ronan), who show up and seek refuge in a run-down coastal resort. Clara meets the lonely Noel (Daniel Mays), who provides shelter in his deserted guesthouse. Eleanor, who appears to be 16, goes to school and befriends Frank (Caleb Landry Jones), a sickly classmate.

Despite the pact of silence shared by the pair, Eleanor reveals their lethal secret: they’re vampires, born 200 years ago and surviving on human blood. As knowledge of their secret spreads, their past catches up on them with deathly consequences.

With a cast that also includes Sam Riley, Tom Hollander and Barry Cassin, Byzantium explores the genre’s tropes from a distinctly feminine angle, giving us two vampires who must fight against prejudice from within their own ranks, since their fellow fang club members feel that it should be a brotherhood that excludes women. Eleanor, meanwhile, must also deal with being an eternal teenager.

Byzantium is due to arrive here on May 31. Check out a clip from the film…
