Watch: Debut International Trailer for Neil Jordan's Vampire Thriller 'Byzantium'
Neil Jordan's "Byzantium."
West End Films has released the first international trailer for Neil Jordan's new vampire-thriller "Byzantium," starring Saoirse Ronan and Gemma Arterton.
The film finds the "Interview with a Vampire," helmer back in somewhat-familiar territory with its story of a mother-daughter vampire duo (Ronan and Arterton) who upon seeking refuge at a small coastal resort find word of their true identities quickly spreading throughout the surrounding community. Screenwriter/playwright Moira Buffina, who last scripted Cay Joji Fukunaga's 2011 adaptation of "Jane Eyre," wrote the film, which also stars Sam Riley and Jonny Lee Miller.
After screening at the Toronto International Film Festival last September, IFC Films picked up the US distribution rights for the film, and while no US theatrical release date is currently set, expect to see the film in a limited theatrical run and VOD release later this year.
