Watch: Full US Trailer for Neil Jordan's Vampire Drama 'Byzantium'
Before the whole vampire craze, director Neil Jordan crafted his relatively controversial film Interview with the Vampire, based on Anne Rice's book. Now Jordan is heading back into bloodsucking territory with Byzantium, and a new domestic trailer shows the unique film isn't just capitalizing on a trend. With a story that spans centuries, two young vampires get into trouble in present day when Clara's (Gemma Arterton) brothel business and Eleanor's (Saoirse Ronan) relationship with a sick young boy (Caleb Landry Jones) threatens to expose their immortal secret and put their lives in jeopardy. Watch below!
Here's the new trailer for Neil Jordan's Byzantium, originally from Apple:
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 the film which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival last year, and StudioCanal is distributing in the UK while IFC Films releases the film this summer June 28th in the US.

Hmm...looks alright I guess. I wish it didn't look so melodramatic.

I really like the way of see and tell the stories the way Jordan does it. He have that romantic and gothic style that you can find in books. This looks like a modern: "the company of wolves"
