A Whole Lotta Gemma Arterton In These New ‘Byzantium’ Stills

Arriving on VOD and in limited theaters June 28 is Neil Jordan’s Byzantium, which was acquired by IFC Films out of the Toronto International Film Festival. We now have a large image gallery loaded with sexy looks at star Gemma Arterton.

Also starring Saoirse Ronan, Caleb Landry Jones, Danny Mays, Bradley James, Sam Riley, Jonny Lee Miller and Tom Hollander, the pic is about a pair of women who claim to be vampire siblings.

On the run for murder, two young “sisters” arrive penniless at an English seaside town. Clara is a fiercely modern woman who has her eyes on the future and no time for the past. Teenager Eleanor is shy and innocent. Yet they both hide the same secrets: they are really mother and daughter, and they are both … vampires!

    I’m so over vampires. Gemma is gorgeous but it’s just not enough.

    a whole lotta Gemma is always a good thing. i’m really excited for this movie. it doesn’t look like the traditional vampire deal. with a cast of Gemma & Saoirse Ronan, i’m in.

      Agreed. It definitely isn’t traditional. I saw it at TIFF and really enjoyed it. The cast did a great job with a completely different type of story. Also, there was some beautiful imagery, (not just Gemma).

    I always say I’m over vampires too but when I actually think about it I don’t really watch many vampire films, so that can’t be true. Anyway, this looks great. Neil Jordan is pretty fantastic too, ‘Breakfast on Pluto’ and ‘The Crying Game’ are both films I really love. I know it’s flawed but I also quite like ‘In Dreams’. ‘Interview’ I don’t care for but it has nothing to do with his direction, it’s the casting of two key actors that felt out of place.
