First Blood Thirsty Clip from Neil Jordan’s Byzantium

Saoirse Ronan in Byzantium (2012) Movie Image

I guess we’re no longer hiding the fact that Neil Jordan’s “Byzantium” is about a mother and daughter vampire duo, right? Or at least, a non-traditional one, since they seem to be able to walk in the sunlight just fine. I was always a little hesitant about exposing this part of the movie, but since everyone and their mom has the below synopsis on their sites, I guess it doesn’t matter anymore. Anyways, check out the first clip from the movie below to get a taste of what’s coming. If the entire movie is like this, you’re looking at a very haunting, atmospheric vampire tale.

Two mysterious women seek refuge in a run-down coastal resort. Clara (Gemma Arterton) meets lonely Noel, who provides shelter in his deserted guesthouse, Byzantium. Schoolgirl Eleanor befriends Frank and tells him their lethal secret. They were born 200 years ago and survive on human blood. As knowledge of their secret spreads, their past catches up on them with deathly consequence.

“Byzantium” stars Gemma Arteron, Saoirse Ronan, Jonny Lee Miller, Sam Riley, Tom Hollander, Caleb Landry Jones, Daniel Mays, and probably opens in 2013 in the UK and Stateside.
