Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby, and other works shown so far include Sofia Coppola’s The Bling Ring and Ryan Coogler’s Fruitvale Station.
In competition for the Palme d’Or is Jim Jarmusch’s vampire drama Only Lovers Left Alive, a modern vampire romance that sets out to examine the nature of humanity through the eyes of people who lived for centuries, which marks the director’s first film release since 2009′s uneventful The Limits of Control.

One of Empire's Cannes picks, Jim Jarmusch's Only Lovers Left Alive is a fatalistic vampire flick that could be in the Palme d'Or shake-up.

The film star Tom Hiddleston, whose recent hits include War Horse, The Avengers, Midnight in Paris and Thor , will return to one of the smallest stages in London's West End, the Donmar Warehouse, to play the title role in Shakespeare's blood-soaked tragedy Coriolanus.
Hiddleston described it as "a play for our time", adding: "The fate of Coriolanus dramatises the conflict in the heart of every public figure: the war between integrity and popularity; the difference between military action and politics; the debate between public responsibility and private freedom."
He will play opposite Mark Gatiss, co-founder of the League of Gentlemen, who will soon return to television screens as Mycroft Holmes in the BBC series Sherlock, making his first professional appearance in a Shakespeare play. The production, opening in December, »

No fan boys and girls, you’re not imagining it…Loki and Mycroft Holmes will be in a play together!
It was announced today that Tom Hiddleston and Mark Gatiss will have a stint at one of the West End’s smallest theatres, the Donmar Warehouse, in a reboot of Shakespeare’s Coriolanus. Hiddleston will be playing the title role, and in true Hiddles fashion, he is ever enthusiastic about it. He described the play as “a play of our time” and went on to say:
“The fate of Coriolanus dramatises the conflict in the heart of every public figure: the war between integrity and popularity; the difference between military action and politics; the debate between public responsibility and private freedom.”

The last film to be unveiled in competition at Cannes this year is also one of the most anticipated: Jim Jarmusch's "Only Lovers Left Alive." A last-minute addition to the competition (presumably the print will still be wet, as it were, hence its late screening), it sees the idiosyncratic indie helmer assemble a superb cast including Tom Hiddleston, Tilda Swinton, Mia Wasikowska and Anton Yelchin, for a film that promises to be that rarest of things; a fresh take on the vampire movie. We're still a few days away from the screening, but a host of enticing new photos from the film have arrived, along with an official synopsis and a director's statement from Jarmusch that lets us know what to expect. And we can't wait. Check them out below, and keep your eyes peeled for our review of "Only Lovers Left Alive" when it screens on the Croisette next Saturday. »

Warning: Spoilers Running Free.
Generally speaking, bad guys are bad guys because they want to do bad things and get away with them, so if you see one get caught in the middle of a movie it usually means they've got an ace up their sleeve. Lately we've been seeing this trend of the bad guy getting caught on purpose (capture, interrogation, threat, destruction, escape) in big tentpole blockbusters, and either every copy of Final Draft has a glitch that automatically pastes that into a script … or folks are getting lazy.
Seeing as how it's used once again in "Star Trek Into Darkness," let's cite five recent examples of this cliché in the hopes that we can declare a moratorium on it ... at least until it counts as nostalgia.
Culprit #1: 'The Dark Knight' (2008)
Mastermind: The Joker (Heath Ledger)

Earlier this month, it was reported that Fast and Furious 6 villain Luke Evans will be playing Eric Draven in The Crow remake set up over at Relativity Media. It seems like a lot of fans would have preferred to see Tom Hiddleston, who was up for the part at one point, in the role. Of course, fans of the original film don't want to see The Crow remade at all. Unfortunately, there's nothing we can do to stop it. The only way that you can drive this point home to Hollywood is to not see the movie when it's released. Only if it doesn't succeed will they admit to making a mistake, because if it makes money they're going to keep doing it.
During a recent interview with Empire, Evans is asked about the reboot, and this is what he had to say...
He doesn't reveal much, but he does »

In the aftermath of Marvel's "Thor" and "Marvel's The Avengers," Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos...but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness.

Luke Evans is now set to star in the upcoming remake of The Crow. Bradley Cooper was once attached, Tom Hiddleston was rumoured, even James McAvoy was considered, but it's official: Evans will don Draven's corpse paint. Speaking to Evans at the Fast & Furious 6 junket recently, Empire asked him about it, and here's what he had to say. brightcove.createExperiences();Though he doesn't reveal too much about the angle the reboot will take - that's a question for director F. Javier Gutierrez - it's interesting to see how positive and confident Evans is about challenging the first adaptation from way back in 1994, brought to us by director Alex Proyas and star Brandon Lee. This new Crow was kickstarted by Stephen Norrington in 2009, with the Blade director planning to shoot his own screenplay, which would have taken place in Detroit and the American Southwest. Nick Cave wrote a draft in 2010, before »
Congrats to Benedict Cumberbatch, who plays Commander John Harrison in today’s new release Star Trek Into Darkness, for waking me out of cryosleep and forcing me to remember how hot a good movie villain can be. Star Trek Into Darkness is shaping up to be a killer sequel to J.J. Abrams‘ unbeatable 2009 original, and in honor of Cumberbatch’s sinister, dead sexy allure, we’re counting up the 10 hottest villains ever!
Tom Hiddleston is a jovial and cool-seeming guy in interviews, but in Thor, the thespian’s unflinching intensity and sheer weirdness make for an unusual, cartoonish, but sexy villain. If Loki is a trickster, the greatest trick he ever pulled was challenging Chris Hemsworth’s sexiness and succeeding.
Nothing makes a villain hotter than sardonic one-liners, and Christian Slater spouted them without hesitation as J.D. »

Sometimes a movie so fantastically bizarre comes together that it sounds like it's some sort of brilliant Madlib. That's how I lovingly think of Only Lovers Left Alive, a romantic drama written and directed by art house auteur Jim Jarmusch that stars Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton as vampire lovers. It seems utterly outlandish, and yet oddly perfect. In the film, Hiddleston plays a vampire/rock musician called Adam. Swinton is his Eve, literally.her name is Eve. And together these two live in undead bliss.until Eve's spunky little sister Ava (played by Stoker's Mia Wasikowska) turns up. Only Lovers Left Alive is poised to make its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival on May 25th. And in anticipation of its debut, io9 has uncovered a pair of clips that give us our first look at these lovers in action. Up top is a clip that shows »
Don't expect the usual brand of bloodsuckers in Jim Jarmusch's upcoming vampire film Only Lovers Left Alive. The director has already revealed that there won't be the usual neck biting and cheesy mirror tricks we're normally presented with in vamp films. Tom Hiddleston plays Adam, a depressed, underground musician (described as a moody "Hamlet-like" character) who reunites with his lover through the centuries, Eve (Tilda Swinton). They find their passionate homecoming interrupted by Eve's wild sister, Ava (Mia Wasikowska). John Hurt and Anton Yelchin also star in the Cannes contender, which premieres on May 25. In two new clips from The Playlist, we see sparks flying between the couple and a bit of Ava's childlike personality rearing its head...

Are you ready for a little vampire action, Jim Jarmusch style? The iconoclastic indie director heads to Cannes with his Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston starring vampire picture Only Lovers Left Alive and while plot information remains relatively scarce a pair of clips from the film have turned up over at The Playlist. The intent of the scarce marketing thus far has clearly been to let the film speak for itself so I'll do just that. Check the clips below....
