Studio Canal have revealed that they are planning to bring to Blu-ray director Neil Jordan's (Mona Lisa, The Crying Game) Byzantium (2012), starring Saoirse Ronan, Gemma Arterton, Caleb Landry Jones, and Thure Lindhardt. The preliminary release date set by the distributors is September 23rd.
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.
Hold it just a darn minute there, Studio Canal (formerly Optimum Home Ent), I think we have enough vampire movies on bd -- but, whatever happened to your U.K. BD of Neil Jordan's brilliant 'The Crying Game' (100% on R/T's !), which was announced over a year ago for a Feb 2012 release, but then mysteriously cancelled shortly after (???)
@James78 -- thanks for the link. Is this the Netherlands release? Have you heard anything about its PQ & AQ ? And yes, because Byzantium is directed by Jordan, it just might warrant a blind-purchase ...
