First Look at Only Lovers Left Alive

Jim Jarmusch has made a vampire movie, and if that's not enough to get you seriously stoked, then how about this cast? Tom Hiddelston, Anton Yelchin, Mia Wasikowska, John Hurt and Tilda Swinton. Yeah, damn, right? Well, feast your eyes on this.

The first image from the movie has arrived on IndieWire and it's Swinton looking fierce as usual, with Hiddleston wrapping his arms around her, because who wouldn't? In the movie, Loki (Newsflash: his name isn't actually Loki) plays Adam, an underground musician who reunites with his centuries long lover Eve (Swinton), but finds their relationship interrupted by her wild sister, Ava (Wasikowska). So, an indie music vampire movie or something? Whatever it is Jarmusch is cooking up, it's likely to be far different than your average movie about bloodsuckers.

We'd place a pretty firm bet on this one premiering at the Cannes Film Festival in May. No distribution yet, but that will be sorted soon enough.


This sounds stupid as hell, and Tom looks ridiculous. However, I love Tilda and Tom. So, I will see this.

They're giving off creepy mother/son vibes

lol yeah. He also looks thinner than usual and oddly fragile. I'm very confused by this still.

I'm thinking he lost weight for his portrayal as a vampire

I feel like I'm just conditioned to vampires being lithe but lean. He looks fragile, and it is confusing my preconceived vampire notions.

Same here.

It's a different, and interesting, direction.

He was looking pretty scarily thin this summer while filming it, so I think it may have been intentional...

At least the most recent pictures of him indicate that he looks much healthier.
