There’s a feeling of the vampire stories of old in today’s newly released “Byzantium” trailer, as we witness secrets being kept and told over the centuries, gorgeous period costumes, and the occasional murder.

Which is good news for he other guys on the list, who are, according to a Variety reporter, Henry Cavill, Scoot McNairy and Caleb Landry Jones.

She may look sweet and innocent, but Saoirse Ronan leaves no question about what she actually is in our first look at a scene from Neil Jordan’s “Byzantium.” The film premieres this Sunday at the Toronto International Film Festival, and also stars Gemma Arterton as Clara, Ronan’s charcter Eleanor’s mother/vampire sire, and Sam Riley as Darvell and Caleb Landry Jones as Frank, the human boys they cross paths with. In this clip, Jones’ Frank has clearly injured his hand pretty badly and Eleanor helps him home to his parents. EleanorRead More
Vampires are coming to Toronto, but when they look like Gemma Arterton and Saoirse Ronan, how bad could it be? Neil Jordan’s “Byzantium” was just announced this morning as a Special Presentation at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival and now new photos from the film have been released, which include our first looks at Arterton and Sam Riley (we’ve already seen the first image of Ronan, though there’s a couple of new ones of her here as well).

Young actors probably all secretly dream of being compared to River Phoenix (or James Dean, or even Heath Ledger) whose untimely death has created a permanent and nearly untouchable image of the late actor as the pinnacle of untapped youthful talent, but to take a role originally meant for Phoenix must be on a whole other level entirely. Deadline reports Caleb Landry Jones will be the one to experience that surreality as he has been cast as the male lead in “Broken Dream”, which director John Boorman wanted to shootRead More
We’ve seen Caleb Landry Jones in a still from Brandon Cronenberg’s totally absurd and surreal sounding futuristic sci-fi thriller “Antiviral”, and today Twitch Film brings us our first look at leading lady Sarah Gadon in two new stills. Cronenberg’s Cannes-bound Un Certain Regard selection revolves around Landry Jones’ Syd March, who works at a shady clinic that sells injections of celebrity diseases to obsessed fans.

The official Cannes Film Festival lineup has finally been unveiled and looks like we can expect a more than usual number of up and coming young actors to head to the French Riviera next month.
