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 »

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.

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. »
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, »

Here are a couple of new release dates: Snowpiercer, from writer-director Bong Joon-ho, and starring Chris Evans, Octavia Spencer, John Hurt, and Tilda Swinton, will make its U.S. debut on June 27th in limited release. Kill the Messenger, directed by Michael Cuesta and starring Jeremy Renner, opens October 10th. Hit the jump for more on both films. Snowpiercer has already played all around the world, but it looks like we'll finally get to take a look at it for ourselves when it graces American shores this June. Though it's opening that weekend in limited release, it does so opposite Michael Bay's Transformers: Age of Extinction. The other problem is that The Weinstein Company agreed on releasing the director's cut of the film, but in a strategy that increases the number of theaters it plays in each week being contingent upon box office performance. In other words, if Transformers drowns it out, »

After much debate over what cut would make it to theaters, Joon Ho-Bong's much anticipated "Snowpiercer" has finally received a release date from Radius-twc. American audiences can finally see the festival favorite on June 27, according to BoxOfficeMojo. The summer release date indicates at least some degree of optimism at the box office from Harvey Weinstein & Co. Starring Chris Evans, Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell, Ed Harris, and John Hurt, "Snowpiercer" tells the story of evolving class systems onboard a train circling the world thanks to a perpetual motion engine. Dealing with social issues, global warming, and Chris Evans' mangy beard, the film carries the weight of a freight engine and hopes to attract audiences venturing out for blockbuster fare this summer with its commentary, clashes, and cast. Much has been made about the film's long journey to cinemas. Now that a date is finally here, how excited are you, dear readers? »

Written and conceptualized before “Broken Flowers,” Jim Jarmusch’s moody, melancholic and utterly hilarious vampire movie “Only Lovers Left Alive” took a lenthy seven years to come to l. Written with Tilda Swinton in mind — who Jarmusch adores — the movie could never quite find its funding (and even had Michael Fassbender as the lead at one point), but Swinton and actor John Hurt (who was also onboard the project very early), never gave up on the movie, and stayed encouraging during the ups and downs of its development. Having already premiered at Cannes last year (and making stops at the Toronto International Film Festival and New York Film Festival as well), “Only Lovers Left Alive” — which might just be Jarmusch’s finest film to date — is set to be unleashed on the world finally on April 11th. And having just sat down with the venerable filmmaker recently to discuss the »

A few evenings ago Matthew McConaughey took home the Best Actor award at the Oscars for his portrayal of Ron Woodroof, the epitome of American masculinity, who contacts HIV. For the role McConaughey lost over 50 pounds and looks a shadow of the usual dominating characters he has recently played (Killer Joe, Mud). On this note, it would be fitting to revisit some of the greatest transformations actors and actresses have gone through for a single performance.
Now, there are plenty of performances where the actor is almost unrecognisable due to special effects or incredible artistry and make up, but what this list is looking at, are the performances where a performer totally reinvents themselves on screen physically – you know the face on the screen, you’ve seen them in other films but you have to double take just to recognize them. So, sorry John Hurt, you’re wonderful turn as »
