Byzantium starring Saoirse Ronan and Gemma Arterton coming to Blu-ray in October
MPI Home Video and IFC Films has announced that the drama BYZANTIUM, from director Neil Jordan and starring Saoirse Ronan, Gemma Arterton, Caleb Landry Jones, Barry Cassin and Warren Brown, will potentially be available on Blu-ray October 29th, 2013 (apparently this is just a preliminary release date).
Here’s the synopsis for BYZANTIUM: Two female vampires wreak havoc on an unsuspecting English seaside community in this deliciously depraved supernatural drama from Oscar-winner Neil Jordan. Introverted Eleanor (Saoirse Ronan) and the outgoing Clara (Gemma Arterton) both carry secrets from deep in their shared past—all 200 years of it. Shacked up in the seedy Byzantium Hotel, they scheme to keep their secret from unsuspecting new marks in Jordan’s seductive, stylish new take on the vampire genre.
Artwork will be updated when available.
If you’re anything like me then you are most likely sick to death of vampires as well as zombies so you may end up skipping this title. However, I am looking forward to it because Saoirse Ronan is one of those ridiculously talented actresses who almost always seem to pick interesting roles so I know what I’ll be doing this Halloween.
No special features have been announced for BYZANTIUM at this time.
