This site has previously reported on Byzantium. It is a film starring Saoirse Ronan, Gemma Arterton, and Sam Riley, and is directed by Neil Jordan. The first poster (or sales art) has hit the internet, and here it is. I really like it, and I am interested to see a different kind of film that has vampires in it. The poster itself is dramatic, and I love the tagline, “Irresistible. Immoral. Immortal.” This is the film that Saoirse was working on previous to The Host. She also had brown hair for the film, which piqued our interest about how she would look as Melanie Stryder. The synopsis is below:
“On the run for murder, two young “sisters” arrive penniless at an English seaside town. Clara is a fiercely modern woman who has her eyes on the future and no time for the past. Teenager Eleanor 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.”
