Watch: Jarmusch's Vampire Romance 'Only Lovers Left Alive' Trailer
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!
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.
