WestEnd Films have revealed another new still from their new vampire project ‘Byzantium’. The still features our first official glimpse at both Gemma Arterton (‘Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters’) and Saoirse Ronan (‘The Lovely Bones’) together who play Clara and Eleanor in the Neil Jordan helmed fantasy drama respectively. The story is based on the play ‘A Vampire Story’ by Moira Buffini. Caleb Landry Jones (‘The Last Exorcism’, ‘Antiviral’), Jonny Lee Miller (‘Dexter’, Dark Shadows’), Tom Hollander (‘Hanna’), Sam Riley and Daniel Mays (‘Ashes to Ashes’) all co-star. Check out the new still and extended plot synopis below.

“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.”
