Only Lovers Left Alive

After premiering at the Cannes Festival earlier this year, Sony Pictures Classics picked up the vampire romance Only Loves Left Alive from director Jim Jarmusch. Now the film is poised for release sometime down the road (though no release date has been set), and the first trailer gives us a glimpse at this film which our own Alex Billington calls "funky and odd." The trailer certainly confirms both of those descriptors, but as Alex also noted, it looks like Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton give some impressive performances. This is sure to be an odd indie release but should be worth checking out. Watch!

First trailer for Jim Jarmusch's Only Lovers Left Alive, originally form ONTD (via The Playlist):

Only Lovers Left Alive, written & directed by Jim Jarmusch (Dead Man, Broken Flowers, Limits of Control) takes place against the romantic desolation of Detroit and Tangier and follows an underground musician (Tom Hiddletons), deeply depressed by the direction of human activities, who reunites with his resilient and enigmatic lover (Tilda Swinton). Their love story has endured several centuries at least, but their debauched idyll is disrupted by her wild and uncontrollable younger sister. Mia Wasikowska, John Hurt, and Anton Yelchin also star in the film which premiered at Cannes, though Sony Pictures Classics has no release date.

    Hiddleston & Swinton; great combo! And hell yes, Tilda is looking great! Hard to believe she's 52!

      absolutely. cast those two as eternal vampires and just their natural features do half the characterisation for them. and Jarmusch does tend to elicit great performances from his actors - and he's got two top class ones here. add in Hurt + Yelchin +Wasikowska = so sold. plus a trailer that actually *trails*, bravo.

    Even a bad Jarmusch film is still pretty good. Wait, he hasn't done a bad one yet.
