Byzantium ImageNeil Jordan returns to all things vampire with his new film Byzantium, adapted by Moira Buffini from her own play, with Gemma Arterton and Saoirse Ronan in the leading roles.

We’ve seen a few images from the film before and there’s a new one for your eyes right here, thanks to Dread Central. The image is below, although I think this new synopsis is worth a few moments of your time if only for the incredibly unsubtle use of words to  elicit excitement and intrigue.

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.

Ok, they’re “sisters” who are both…vampires! Poetry. Here’s your image and the poster we saw in April for comparison.
