Now this is more like it!
We posted a trailer of Neil Jordan's new vampire fable, "Byzantium," and we have to say it didn't do much for us. We dig Jordan, but he's frustratingly (and lovingly, sure) hit-or-miss, and the trailer made "Byzantium" look more like "In Dreams" (ugh) than "Interview with the Vampire" (awesome).
Now, Yahoo! Movies UK has posted a new international trailer for the film, and we like this one much better. It makes the movie actually look, you know, interesting. And kind of hot. And filled with vampire-ish goings-on. You know, all the stuff that makes us want to see a movie.
"Byzantium" tells the tale of a mother/daughter vampire duo (Gemma Arterton and Saoirse Ronan) who find themselves at a remote seaside town, where their involvement with a handsome stranger (Caleb Landry Jones) threatens to tear apart their already delicate existence. Lots of passionate European things ensue, often involving a lot of blood.
Check out the gorgeous creatures of the night above. "Byzantium" opens June 28.
