Only Lovers Left Alive

'Only Lovers Left Alive' with Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton Gets US Release Date

Only Lovers Left Alive, the upcoming indie vampire romance from director Jim Jarmusch, has already done the film festival rounds – showing at Cannes, the Toronto Film Festival, the New York Film Festival, Sundance and more – and a lot of lucky people have already gotten to see it. However, the rest of us can finally breathe a sigh of relief because it has been officially given a US release date at last.

The film, which features internet darling and The Hollow Crown star Tom Hiddleston alongside Tilda Swinton, Anton Yelchin, John Hurt and Mia Wasikowska, will hit American theaters in limited release beginning April 11, 2014. Of course “limited release” generally tends to translate to “you’ll probably still have to wait a couple of weeks if you don’t live in New York or Los Angeles”, but at least we know it’s coming, eventually.

Watch: First Trailer for 'Only Lovers Left Alive' with Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton

The long-awaited first trailer has been released for upcoming indie vampire romance drama Only Lovers Left Alive, the latest film from director Jim Jarmusch that chronicles the story of two vampires that have been in love for centuries.

The film stars The Avengers and The Hollow Crown fan favorite Tom Hiddleston alongside the always interesting Tilda Swinton, an Oscar winner whom you may remember as the White Witch in the recent Narnia films and also as that woman who lived in the Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art for several weeks as a part of a strange piece of performance art. Hiddleston and Swinton play a pair of vampires named Adam and Eve, who are part of a rather epic love story.

Don’t worry – as you’ll see from the trailer below – Only Lovers Left Alive seems to come with a lot more emotional complexity and existential moodiness than your average vampire flick.
