‘Only Lovers Left Alive’ Trailer: Swinton and Hiddleston Are Vampires

Director Jim Jarmusch brings his indie sensibilities back to the big screen this spring with the vampire romance Only Lovers Left Alive. Sony Pictures Classics has debuted the first domestic trailer along with a clip. In a vast departure from his role as Loki in Thor: The Dark World, Tom Hiddleston stars as Adam, an underground musician who reunites with his long-lost lover Eve (Tilda Swinton) after spending centuries apart from one another. Mia Wasikowska, John Hurt, Anton Yelchin and Jeffrey Wright co-star in this upcoming drama, arriving in theaters April 11.

Only Lovers Left Alive takes place against the romantic desolation of Detroit and Tangier and follows an underground musician, deeply depressed by the direction of human activities, who reunites with his resilient and enigmatic lover. Their love story has already endured several centuries at least, but their debauched idyll is soon disrupted by her wild and uncontrollable younger sister.

Now that vampires have permeated the mainstream cinematic landscape with The Twilight Saga, it's time to see what independent filmmakers can do with the genre, hopefully without those glittery faces. Heralded director Jim Jarmusch (Ghost Dog: The Way of The Samurai, The Limits of Control) is making his (bite) mark on the vampire tradition with Only Lovers Left Alive, which does not have a release date or a distributor in place yet. Tom Hiddleston stars as Adam, a musician who reunites with his long-lost lover from centuries ago, Eve (Tilda Swinton), although their reunion gets disrupted by Eve's rowdy sister (Mia Wasikowska). The first photo from this indie drama has debuted, featuring Adam embracing Eve, with both of them wearing shades to protect themselves from that nasty sun. Check out the photo, and stay tuned for any further news regarding Only Lovers Left Alive.

Only Lovers Left Alive was released April 11th, 2014.
