Vivid And Lush New Trailer For Neil Jordan’s Vampire Story, Byzantium

Nei Jordan‘s biggest box-office to date came from Interview With the Vampire, back in ’94. Almost twenty years later, he’s returned, at least loosely, to the same genre… but with less of the razzle-dazzle star power, this time.

That’s not to say Byzantium has a bad cast – far from it, this film boasts a terrific lineup, from Gemma Arterton and Saoirse Ronan to Sam Riley and Tom Hollander – nor that it lacks for lustre. This trailer is cascading with richness – like a waterfall of deep red blood.

Yes, the Neil Jordan staples all seem to be present and correct, but the film still looks to be fresh, and full of powerful images. I can’t wait to see more.

Byzantium will be released in the UK on May 31st.
