Neil Jordan, the man who brought us "Interview with the Vampire," is now back with another vampire film, called "Byzantium," starring Saoirse Ronan and Gemma Arterton. And today, we have an international trailer for the film. Check it out below.
Plot: On the run for murder, two young "sisters" arrive penniless at an English seaside town. Clara (Gemma Arterton) is a fiercely modern woman who has her eyes on the future and no time for the past. Teenager Eleanor (Saoirse Ronan) is shy and innocent. Yet, they both hide the same secrets: They are really mother and daughter, and they are both... vampires!
Eleanor is exhausted by 200 years on the run and desperate to settle down. But little does she know that her mother has been protecting her all of the years from their own kind, "The Brotherhood." To escape them, they must either blend in or continue running away. But just as they think they may have escaped, their past rapidly catches up with them.
Looks very average. I actually like "Interview with a Midget...er....Vampire", but this looks like a yawner. Mr. Jordan, to compete nowadays, your vampires must be sparkly, gay, and battle werewolves. Or some sh*t like that, so I'm told.

Meyer saw Interview With A Vampire then found out it was written by a fellow woman, who then felt that Anne Rice sold herself out by not making a female friendly vampire francise.
She then proceeded to write the Twilight books while watching Saved By The Bell, Sleepless In Seattle, sipping strawberry milk through Twizzlers and listening to The Indigo Girls.
You know what vampire movie actually has a cool idea, but is a terrible movie? "Lifeforce." It is a horrible, horrible f*cking Tobe Hooper flick, but I like the concept. A comet returns through our system, it has an object/dormant spacecraft in its debris trail, it's full of sleeping aliens that f*cking resemble vampires. Don't bother watching it, because it sux. But I like the idea of it.

I think this guy should've spent the rest of his career adapting all of Anne Rice's vampire books. He had a real good handle on the material.
I'll watch this just for Gemma doh.
