A new domestic trailer and poster for director Neil Jordan’s vampire drama Byzantium have been released online.  The film stars Gemma Arterton and Saoirse Ronan as a mother/daughter vampire duo who arrive in a small British town where their secret doesn’t stay kept for long.  We’ve already seen a couple of international trailers for the pic, but this one does a nice job of teasing the kind of moody, dramatic vampire story that Jordan has crafted, not unlike his previous film Interview with the Vampire.  We see a lot of Ronan’s character mulling over her immortality, and in a bit of a twist it appears that women are forbidden from being turned into vampires.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer and to see the new poster, and click here to read Matt’s review of the film from TIFF.  The film also stars Sam RileyCaleb Landry Jones, and Jonny Lee Miller.  Byzantium opens on June 28th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Byzantium:

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.
