Exclusive: new Byzantium trailer

There will be blood in our exclusive new trailer for Neil Jordan’s vampire epic ‘Byzantium’.

Gemma Arterton and Saoirse Ronan star as Clara and Eleanor - a mother-and-daughter duo of 200-year-old vampires who seek refuge in a run-down English seaside town.

Before long the sensitive Eleanor befriends the gaunt Caleb Landry Jones, while Clara shacks up with Daniel Mays’ good-for-nothing hotel owner and turns the titular resort into a gory bordello. The fun doesn’t last forever though, as knowledge of their secret spreads their past catches up on them with deathly consequence.

As you’d expect from a Neil Jordan flick - he helmed the Oscar-nominated ‘Interview With The Vampire’ and ‘The Crying Game’ - this looks sexy, bloody and thought-provoking.

‘Byzantium’ is released in the UK on 31 May.
