Saoirse Ronan stars in a gross clip from Byzantium
A new clip from the Neil Jordan film BYZANTIUM, starring Saoirse Ronan, has been released and even though vampires don’t make me squeamish this clip was a little gross. BYZANTIUM follows two mysterious women who flee a crime scene and end up in a run-down coastal resort. The older of the two (played by Gemma Arterton) sells her body to make money while the younger one, Eleanor (Saoirse) Ronan, befriends Frank (Caleb Landry Jones) who she confides in that she must drink blood in order to stay alive. This clip shows a young boy who is bleeding rather profusely while Saoirse Ronan’s character looks on fascinated by the bloody rag that has fallen. If blood makes your stomach turn then I would advise watching this clip or the film.
BYZANTIUM will be premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival this month but has no official release date yet. Hopefully we’ll see the film in theaters early next year if not later this year.
