A batch of new stills from Neil Jordan’s vamp adaptation ‘Byzantium’ have risen and that may not be the only thing to rise when glancing upon them. A selection of the new batch give us some more peeks at sexy Brit star Gemma Arterton (‘Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters’) flaunting her goods as the mysterious Clara Webb and showing off her fine blood craving figure. The rest of the pics also feature co-stars Saoirse Ronan (‘The Host’) and Landry Jones (‘The Last Exorcism’, ‘Antiviral’). Jordan helms from a script penned by Moira Buffini whose original play the story is based on. Jonny Lee Miller (‘Dexter’, Dark Shadows’), Tom Hollander (‘Hanna’) and Daniel Mays (‘Ashes to Ashes’) also star. Head below to check out the new pics.
“Eleanor and Clara, two mysterious and penniless young women, flee the scene of a violent crime and arrive in a run-down coastal resort. They try to find money and refuge along the tawdry seafront and in the dilapidated hotels. Clara, ever-practical, sells her body. She soon meets shy and lonely Noel, who provides a roof over their heads in his seedy guesthouse, Byzantium. Clara, always looking towards the future, turns it into a ‘pop-up’ brothel.
Meanwhile Eleanor, the eternal schoolgirl, meets Frank, a kindred spirit who unwittingly prompts her to tell the truth about her life. She tells him that Clara is her mother; yet Clara is only a few years older. She says that she was born in 1804; yet she is just sixteen. She confesses that she must drink human blood to stay alive – and so must her mother. In the small, quiet town, people start to die. And the past that the girls have been running from for so long, finally catches up with them – with astonishing consequences.”
