For a very long time it seemed like vampires were the zenith of cool, from Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise in Interview with a Vampire to Wesley Snipes in Blade. Then the Twilight saga came along and vampires took something of a hit to their image. We’re not saying it was the sparkling, but the sparkling didn’t help.
Luckily, indie director Jim Jarmusch is on hand to repair vampires’ cool image with Only Lovers Left Alive, a romantic horror film about two members of the sharp-toothed undead, Adam (Tom Hiddleston) and Eve (Tilda Swinton), who have a love affair that dates back centuries. They reunite after a period of estrangement, only to have their lives disrupted by the appearance of Eve’s wild younger sister Ava (Mia Wasikowska).

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. »

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. »

If there's anything more mesmerizing than watching a Tilda Swinton performance, it's seeing the actress and film festival runner speak live in person. SXSW attendees in Austin got to experience Swinton in all her alluring glory yesterday during an hour-long talk, moderated by the Film Society of Lincoln Center's newly appointed Deputy Director (and Indiewire co-founder), Eugene Hernandez. The Q&A covered the gamut, from how Swinton found her calling as an artist after meeting a painter her father invited over, to why she signed on to play a vampire in Jim Jarmusch's "Only Lovers Left Alive," which is playing at the festival. But the unquestionable highlight from the talk came when Hernandez asked Swinton -- who said that she makes every film as if it were her last -- what cinema means to her as an art form. Her answer is below: My guides in this inquiry are »

Reboot Sony Pictures is looking to reboot its Zorro franchise and they've tapped competitive fencer-turned-screenwriter Chris Boal (Old Man's War) to craft "a new backstory" that combines "gritty realism" with an "emotional core." Though the studio wants to avoid making a "traditional swashbuckler," there will be plenty of sword fights and bare knuckle boxing, reports Deadline. Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald, currently »

It has been a busy day for previews for some smaller titles scheduled to hit over the next few months.
First up the official U.S. trailer has arrived for "Tracks," John Curran's film about the nine-month journey in 1978 undertaken by Robyn Davidson (Mia Wasikowska). Davidson walked from Alice Springs in Central Australia to the West Australian coast, crossing three deserts in the process.
Adam Driver also stars in the film which opens in Australia this week. This trailer though is the same as the already released international one, albeit with MPAA and TWC title cards.

Sony Pictures has just the official U.S. trailer for Only Lovers Left Alive the film will hit theaters on April 11 2014. Jim Jarmuschs Only Lovers Left Alive is a centered on two vampires who have been in love for centuries. The film has received several positive reviews so it might be worth checking out. Directed and written by Jim Jarmusch and stars Tom Hiddleston Tilda Swinton and Mia Wasikowska. »
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 »

Jim Jarmusch's stream of idiosyncratic characters that have driven his films to a cultural significance continues to flow through the independent film world. He now brings to his devoted fan base his latest feature "Only Lovers Left Alive," starring Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston as atypical vampires contemplating the meaning of their existence. The film details the lives of Adam and Eve as their relationship spans the course of centuries. Based on the trailer, it seems as though "Twilight" fans will want to stay away, with Jarmusch's film wisely taking the dark comedy route and presenting his romantic leads as ultra-cool rather than vicious and monstrous. "Only Lovers Left Alive," which also stars Mia Wasikowska, Anton Yelchin, John Hurtand and Jeffrey Wright, now heads to the 2014 SXSW Film Festival. The film opens on April 11th.

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, »

One has to only watch the last couple of Jim Jarmusch films to know that the director is in love with Tilda Swinton. Increasingly, the filmmaker's camera loves the way she moves, the way she wears clothing, and captures her unspoken, cooler-than-thou attitude. A moments in his most recent film, Only Lovers Left Alive, this reaches almost self-parody as the film lingers on observing Swinton's jet-setting vampire gather and pack her overnights for air travel. Katherine Mathilda Swinton was born in Britain, and blessed with angular androgynous form that brings a detached, outer space vibe to her screen presence. The first time I encountered the actress was in this surreal Orbital music video where she is essentially an otherworldly visitor wandering in time lapse. In a...
