Watch: Dark, Bloody International Trailer for Vampire Film 'Byzantium'
"If you lived with a secret, what would you do?" WestEnd Films has debuted the first international trailer for their new vampire thriller Byzantium, directed by Neil Jordan. The film stars Gemma Arterton and Saoirse Ronan as two, ahem, young vampires (it's not really a spoiler here, even though they do keep it a "secret" in the film) living in a small town in England. Byzantium premiered at TIFF last year, where I first saw it, and it's a dark, seductive, bloody but entertaining film, worth giving a chance. Jonny Lee Miller, Caleb Landry Jones, Sam Riley and Tom Hollander also co-star. If that excites you, it may be for you!

Byzantium is directed by Irish filmmaker Neil Jordan, of the films Mona Lisa, The Crying Game, The End of the Affair, The Good Thief, Breakfast on Pluto, The Brave One and Ondine previously, as well as work on "The Borgias". The screenplay was written by Moira Buffini, based on her own play. This was shot mostly in Ireland as A Vampire Story, and stars Jonny Lee Miller, Caleb Landry Jones, Sam Riley and Tom Hollander. WestEnd Films produced, and StudioCanal is distributing in the UK, with IFC Films releasing in the US. This premiered at TIFF last year. We still don't have a release date for Byzantium, but will be out this year.
