New Trailer For ‘Byzantium’, Could This Be The Best Vampire Movie Of The Year?

7-byzantium-banner

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. I have loved everything I’ve seen from this, it feels like we’re finally getting an original vampire story. It’s a total breath of fresh air and this new trailer is no exception. I can’t wait to see this.

Starring Gemma Arterton, 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 excited for this movie but i won’t watch any more trailers or clips for it. i learned the hard way with EVIL DEAD not to do that anymore.

    Wonderful trailer, and Saoirse Ronan could use a good film after The Host (easily one of the worst movies I’ve seen this year).

    And I agree about the Evil Dead trailers djblack. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVED the Evil Dead 2013. But they gave away SO much, and when you finally watched the movie, there was no real shock factor or surprises.

      Zombie-Killa, lol. i can’t lie, i loved THE HOST! (as djblack1313 runs out of the room in shame…..). i watched it twice! :)

      • Zombie-Killa

        Hahaha! No problems! Personally, I enjoyed the book more (:

          I enjoyed the hell out of ‘Evil Dead’ but I was almost waiting for things to happen from the trailers, when a situation presented itself I could instantly see how the small bit from the trailer would complete the sequence.
          Should I be watching ‘The Host’? lol

          • Zombie-Killa

            “Should” you watch The Host? Eh, I dunno. IF you have lots of downtime or nothing to do, then yeah! lol.

            I just think The Host is a prime example of a novel not being able to make the transition to a big screen movie. As I said before, I REALLY enjoyed the book, but the movie almost gave me a headache and made me cringe at times. lol.

            Also, you should probably take everything I say about The Host with a heaping hand of salt, because I didn’t like it. Should’ve waited for djblack’s point of view before I threw my two cents in. lol.

      Some of the super gore moments were spoiled I can’t deny but I loved how they used some “false advertising” (maybe its in the directors cut). Some things got switched around is what I’m saying and I was pleasantly surprised.

    Definitely the best movie since Let The Right One In, as per one of the posters. I saw this at TIFF and loved that it had a lot of new ideas and it was beautiful to look at, (not just Gemma).

    • djblack1313

      Boonraiser, that’s awesome to hear! i can’t wait for this movie!

  • WalkingDeadGuy

    Looks great, I’ll definitely check it out.

  • Aaron Emery

    I keep forgetting how excited I am for this! It looks gorgeous!

    I can’t pass up anything with Sam Riley, not since he killed it as Ian Curtis in ‘Control’.
