Now that vampires have permeated the mainstream cinematic landscape with The Twilight Saga, it's time to see what independent filmmakers can do with the genre, hopefully without those glittery faces. Heralded director Jim Jarmusch (Ghost Dog: The Way of The Samurai, The Limits of Control) is making his (bite) mark on the vampire tradition with Only Lovers Left Alive, which does not have a release date or a distributor in place yet. Tom Hiddleston stars as Adam, a musician who reunites with his long-lost lover from centuries ago, Eve (Tilda Swinton), although their reunion gets disrupted by Eve's rowdy sister (Mia Wasikowska). The first photo from this indie drama has debuted, featuring Adam embracing Eve, with both of them wearing shades to protect themselves from that nasty sun. Check out the photo, and stay tuned for any further news regarding Only Lovers Left Alive.
Only Lovers Left Alive was released April 11th, 2014 and stars Tilda Swinton, Tom Hiddleston, Anton Yelchin, Mia Wasikowska, John Hurt, Jeffrey Wright, Slimane Dazi, Carter Logan. The film is directed by Jim Jarmusch.
