WestEnd Films have released a new UK trailer for fantasy thriller Byzantium, which comes from Oscar winning screenwriter Neil Jordan (Interview with the Vampire and The Brave One). The film follows a mother and daughter duo, played by Gemma Arterton and Saoirse Ronan, who seek refuge at a deteriorating coastal resort. They hold a secret, and it may have something to do with them being 200 year old vampires.

The film also stars Jonny Lee Miller, Caleb Landry Jones, and Sam Riley, and is currently awaiting a U.S. release date. It will open in the UK on May 3rd, 2013.
