synopsis: Two mysterious women seek refuge in a run-down coastal resort. Clara meets lonely Noel, who provides shelter in his deserted guesthouse, Byzantium. Schoolgirl Eleanor befriends Frank and tells him their lethal secret. They were born 200 years ago and survive on human blood. As knowledge of their secret spreads, their past catches up on them with deathly consequence.
I’m not so sure about this one. It’s Neil Jordan returning to the world of vampires, which could be a good thing. I really like Saoirse Ronan, and it’s a vampire movie, so I was initially “I am SO there!” but now with this trailer I’m having some doubts. It’s not horrible but it’s not epically awesome either. And maybe it’s Gemma Arterton’s presence, because it seems like everything she’s in ends up being terrible. But anyway, it’ll be interesting. At least, like someone else said, it looks to be a slightly different take on vampires than what has become the norm these days.
And don’t get me started on Saoirse being in The Host (really? you’re better than that).
