Jim Jarmusch's "Only Lovers Left Alive" is the New York director's best film in a long time. When he's good, he's very very good, but some of his work can feel indulgent and thin (see "Limits of Control"). But this super-cool vampire romance hits on all cylinders. (It's at 73 on Metacritic.) "Only Lovers Left Alive" stars Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton as exquisitely cool ancient vampires still in love after centuries--perhaps because they live on different continents. He morosely cruises the ghostly streets of a ruined, deserted Detroit (an inspired location), creates lush electronic music and collects vintage instruments provided by his discreet local dealer (Anton Yelchin). She roams the narrow lanes of Tangier to meet her beloved quality blood supplier (John Hurt). She finally pays her lover a visit in Detroit, where they are joined for a time by her mischievous sister (Mia Wasikowska). In this must-see romance, »

You have probably already heard about Only Lovers Left Alive, although it’s far easier to remember it as “the Tom Hiddleston/Tilda Swinton vampire movie.” It has been a long time in coming to the American market, slowly making the rounds of the festival circuit since it premiered at Cannes last year. Now, the film is finally getting a wide U.S. release, promoted by yet another dreamy, ethereal trailer.
Hiddleston and Swinton feature as centuries-old vampire lovers named Adam and Eve, now evolved to a state where they do not need to feast upon humans to acquire sustenance. Instead they seem to spend their time playing music, discussing literature, and enjoying each other’s company. A wrench may be thrown into the works, however, by the appearance of Adam’s sister Ava (Mia Wasikowska), a younger and obviously wilder creature whom Adam does not seem to be overly fond of. »

Everybody loves surprises. Whether it’s a birthday party or a sudden financial windfall, surprises are a welcome part of human existence – there to teach us lessons of life, or simply to puncture the tedium of the status quo.
The same thinking can be applied to death – not in real-life, of course, but in the movies, where shocking movie deaths are part and parcel of the narrative business, brilliantly explaining to us why it’s not wise to walk under falling panes of glass, whilst – at the same time – jolting us out from movie-watching complacency.
A truly memorable movie death is often startling or awfully violent. Put the two together, though, and you get something special – a death scene for which you might end up comically uttering the words, “Well, that escalated quickly” (if you weren’t already silenced and sickened, of course).
In no particular order, then, here »

Going up against the big boys are we? Indie sci-fi The Signal, which screened at The Sundance Film Festival, follows a group of three friends who take a detour during a journey only for everything to suddenly go dark. The film has received many positive reviews and has set a limited release for 13th June, with further expansions in the weeks following that date. The Signal stars Brenton Thwaites, Olivia Cooke, Beau Knapp and Laurence Fishburne.
Meanwhile, Bong Joon Ho’s much awaited Snowpiercer, which like a typical train will be running nearly a year late, has finally set a North American release date. It should be hitting cinemas on 27th June as a limited release with a possible, but as yet unconfirmed, same day VOD release. The film has been delayed for a long time and has already been released in some parts of Europe and Asia. Snowpiercer sees »

Inspired by Mark Twain’s Extracts from Adam’s Diary, Jim Jarmusch’s Only Lovers Left Alive beautifully explores love and living after immortality siphoned away any semblance of life. Beautifully shot and wonderfully performed, the film eschews the more bombastic side of vampiric lore for a subtle approach exploring immortality and existence.
After having mingled with the likes of Lord Byron and Christopher Marlowe (John Hurt), Adam (Tom Hiddleston), is a centuries old vampire who has retreated from society to a home in the carcass of Detroit, living among his analogue music equipment. He admonishes humans as zombies and grudgingly hates them for worshipping inauthenticity over true intellect or talent. Adam is bitter and fatigued. Whether it is his Tesla-engineered electricity system or his penchant for 1905 Gibsons, Adam has not lived in the present for the last few centuries. »

Only Lovers Left Alive stars Tilda Swinton as Eve, a grungy but erudite vampire who's married to a forlorn vampire musician, Adam, played by Tom Hiddleston. Several-hundred-year-old Adam (of Biblical fame) has been living quite happily ever since being expelled from the Garden of Eden--that is, until the 21st century came along with its excesses and greed and pushed him into a full-flung existential crisis.
He cracks and orders a wooden bullet to kill himself.
Adam and Eve are not about blood-sucking and murder but are refined lovers of literature, science, music, and learning in general. When Eve's estranged sister (Mia Wasikowska) "drinks" Ian, a friend, to death, Eve tells her off, saying that »

I couldn’t appreciate this Only Lovers Left Alive trailer more — it captures so much of the perfectly hazy sensation that Jim Jarmusch conjures up in his vampire/junkie tale. We get to see Tom Hiddleston as a mopey ages-old musical innovator, Tilda Swinton as his more pragmatic and engaged companion, and even John Hurt (who […]

"Is that the really good stuff?" Sony Pictures Classics has debuted one more official trailer for the new Jim Jarmusch film, Only Lovers Left Alive, which premiered at Cannes last year and has been playing at festivals all over, including Sundance at this January. In the film, Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton star as a two blood-crossed vampires who have been in love for centuries. But it's not the conventional take on vampires, it's the Jarmusch very indie, minimal take with depressing German rock music and sunglasses. Mia Wasikowska, John Hurt and Anton Yelchin all co-star. The trailer pretty much speaks for itself - enjoy. Here's the latest official Us trailer for Jim Jarmusch's Only Lovers Left Alive, originally from Yahoo: 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 »

Sony Pictures Classics has debuted the first domestic trailer along with a clip.

I'm excited to tell you that Bong Joon-Ho's post apocalyptic thriller Snowpiercer has finally been given a release date, and that date is June 27th, 2014 in limited theaters. We've been reporting news on this movie for such a long time, and it's great that we'll actually be able to see it!
As previously reported, the Weinsteins bought U.S. rights to the film back in 2012 based on a script and and some test footage. The deal they made included a wide release, but the director turned in a film that was over two and half hours long. The Weinsteins wanted the director to cut the film down, but he wouldn't. As a result, the Weinsteins didn't want to release it.
Just a few weeks ago, the two parties recently came to an agreement that allowed the movie to be released in theaters. Basically, the director gets to keep his cut of his film, »

A new U.S. trailer for director Jim Jarmusch’s love story Only Lovers Left Alive, aka “the Tom Hiddleston vampire movie”, has been released online. Hiddleston stars alongside Tilda Swinton as two vampires who have been in love for centuries. This trailer certainly showcases an offbeat tone, but the film actually looks to be quite romantic and, surprisingly, funny. As individuals who have been alive for a very, very long time, the principal characters have a unique outlook on life and culture and they aren’t afraid to share it. This also looks to be a wonderful performance showcase for Hiddleston and Swinton. Hit the jump to watch the new domestic trailer. The film also stars Mia Wasikowska, John Hurt, Anton Yelchin, and Jeffrey Wright. Only Lovers Left Alive opens in theaters April 11th. Via Yahoo! Movies. Here’s the official synopsis for Only Lovers Left Alive: Jim Jarmusch »

"I start every movie thinking how heavy and purposeful it is. But as we film they just get funnier," director Jim Jarmusch told Time Out London. "In the editing room I ended up saying to myself, hey, it’s really just a comedy, Jim. I don’t seem to be able to remove that inclination to humour if I try." And thank God for that. While his latest "Only Lovers Left Alive" is a literate tale of vampire love spanning the centuries between a brooding Adam and his understanding Eve, it's also funny. Really, really funny. And as the film heads into SXSW for its latest festival appearance, a new trailer has arrived giving us another look at the bloodsuckers. Starring Tom Hiddleston, Tilda Swinton, Mia Wasikowska, Anton Yelchin, John Hurt and Jeffrey Wright, there's not much of a plot in this one, so much as a series of events »

Sony Classics will release Jim Jarmusch's Only Lovers Left Alive on April 11 and today we have the first official domestic trailer for the film's release. Starring Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston, the film centers on an underground musician, deeply depressed by the direction of human activities, who reunites with his resilient and enigmatic lover. The key to all of this is they are vampires and the movie cleverly uses the immortal nature of its protagonist for its larger theme. As I noted in my review from Cannes last year... Amid the subtle humor and excellent music, the main thrust of the film is the deterioration of the culture around these two central figures who've lived long enough to watch the world around them crumble. On top of not wanting to feed on today's humans because of the inability to simply throw them in the river and claim tuberculosis, as Eve says at one point, »
