See 'Byzantium' Neil Jordan's Return To the Vampire Film

Gemma Arterton and Saoirse Ronan star in this feminine take on the vampire tale.

I think we can all agree that we've had enough of the glittery-skinned, Forks-dwelling teen vamps. So it's high-time for the return of Neil Jordan the director of definitive vampire flick, Interview with A Vampire. On his latest venture into the world of Dracula, Jordan tells the story of sisters Eleanor and Clara, (played by Saoirse Ronan and Gemma Arterton). After finding shelter in the Byzantium Hotel, sheltered Eleanor begins to step out from the shadow of her older sister as she begins a relationship with a local boy, and endangers herself and her sister by revealing who (and what) she truly is.

Check out the film's trailer below and make sure to buy tickets for the film's remaining screenings:
