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.
Well, here's another movie that makes a strong case for being stalked and ravaged by a vampire as the sweetest way to go possible.
"Interview with the Vampire" director Neil Jordan returns for another bloodsucking tale of gorgeous creatures of the night with "Byzantium," a film that trumps its awkward title with a a lot of delectable undead eye candy. Get More »
As much as we love all that summer has to offer, fall is where it's at for true cinephiles. The movie lover's season officially kicks off (according to us, anyway) the same day the annual Toronto International Festival launches every year in early September.
As has been the case for several years now, Toronto serves as a platform for studios to launch their Oscar hopefuls and for smaller indies to find a home (and maybe some awards down the line). "The King's Speech," "Slumdog Millionaire," "Precious" and "The Artist" all played at the festival before going on to Oscar glory while films like "Beginners," "Killer Joe" and "Your Sister's Sister," all came into the event without a distributor, and left with one.

Saoirse Ronan has always been one for mixing things up, whether she's playing ultimate bratty little sister in "Atonement" or snapping necks to a Chemical Brothers beat in "Hanna."
Ronan's latest project is a juicy one and suits the young actress perfectly. She's taking on the starring role of real-life feminist, pacifist and writer Vera Brittain in an adaptation of her memoir "Testament of Youth." "Harry Potter" producer David Heyman is working on the film, which is also being backed by the BBC. Get More »
Caleb Landry Jones is about to sink his teeth into "Byzantium." Well… sort of.
Word on the street is that the "X Men: First Class" star (who will next be seen in "Contraband") has officially signed on for the male lead in this vampire-themed fantasy thriller, though he himself is not one of the blood-sucking set. Those juicy roles belong to the female tag team of Saoirse Ronan and Gemma Arterton.
The story follows a mother-daughter pair of vampires (played by Ronan and Arterton, we assume) who arrive in a small British town and, for some mysterious reason, reveal their secret to the locals. Get More »
The Cannes Film Festival is known for many things -- red carpets, star-studded galas, critics booing movies -- but this year it's become known for something new: vampires.
That's because two new high-profile vampire films, from famed directors Neil Jordan and Jim Jarmusch, were announced at this year's festival. And considering these are just the latest entries in the hottest film craze of the decade, we thought now would be a good time to take look at those projects as well as eight other upcoming vampire movies.

Here's a new story about vampires that has our veins throbbing with excitement.
Straight outta Cannes is news that Saoirse Ronan and Gemma Arterton will be teaming up with Oscar-winning director Neil Jordan for "Byzantium," a spooky flick about the eternal bond between a mother and a daughter… who are also vampires. In fact, the mom turns her kid into a vampire herself. And because they're so young and fresh, sometimes they pretend they're sisters while they get up to their dastardly deeds. What would Freud say?
