Neil Jordan’s Vampire Thriller Byzantium Set for June 28


IFC Films has set Neil Jordan’s vampire thriller Byzantium for release on June 28. You can check out the previously-released international trailer in the player at the bottom of the page.

In the film, starring Gemma Arterton, Saoirse Ronan, Sam Riley, Jonny Lee Miller, Caleb Landry Jones and Danny Mays, two mysterious women seek refuge in a run-down coastal resort. Clara meets lonely Noel, who provides shelter in his deserted guesthouse, Byzantium. Schoolgirl Eleanor befriends Frank and tells him their lethal secret. They were born 200 years ago and survive on human blood. As knowledge of their secret spreads, their past catches up on them with deathly consequence.

The June 28 release puts Byzantium up against the Paul Feig comedy The Heat and the Roland Emmerich action thriller White House Down.
