Gemma Arterton gazes out in wonder in this new still from Neil Jordan's Byzantium

A couple months ago Andy did us all a solid by showing us that new BYZANTIUM poster you see to the right. Pretty cool, right?

Well today we've got ourselves a new still from the flick that basically echoes that very poster! You see in this new shot we've got hottie Gemma Arterton as she gazes out beyond that huge neon Byzantium sign. Sure it's really nothing worth writing home about but hey, it's worth a look! Tap that shite directly below.

Eleanor and Clara, two mysterious and penniless young women, flee the scene of a violent crime and arrive in a run-down coastal resort. They try to find money and refuge along the tawdry seafront and in the dilapidated hotels.

Clara, ever-practical, sells her body. She soon meets shy and lonely Noel, who provides a roof over their heads in his seedy guesthouse, Byzantium. Clara, always looking towards the future, turns it into a ‘pop-up’ brothel.

Meanwhile Eleanor, the eternal schoolgirl, meets Frank, a kindred spirit who unwittingly prompts her to tell the truth about her life. She tells him that Clara is her mother; yet Clara is only a few years older. She says that she was born in 1804; yet she is just sixteen. She confesses that she must drink human blood to stay alive – and so must her mother. In the small, quiet town, people start to die.

And the past that the girls have been running from for so long, finally catches up with them – with astonishing consequences.

Along with Arterton the highly-anticipated vampire romp also stars Saoirse Ronan, Sam Riley, Jonny Lee Miller, Caleb Landry Jones and Tom Hollander. Still without a release date, the Neil Jordan film is expected to drop before the end of the year.

Extra Tidbit: The only other genre flicks Gemma Arterton (above) has coming up are HANSEL & GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS and THE WRIGHT GIRLS.
