Trailer For Vampire Film ‘Only Lovers Left Alive’ Looks ‘Near Dark’-ish

Screen shot 2013-11-01 at 4.20.55 PM

Recently acquired by Sony Pictures Classics, check out a really artsy first trailer for Jim Jarmusch’s vampire love story Only Lovers Left Alive, which stars Tilda Swinton, Tom Hiddleston, Mia Wasikowska, John Hurt and Anton Yelchin.

Maybe I’m alone here, but I think Swinton is easily one of the greatest actresses ever, and to see her in a vampire film immediately has my attention. The footage has sort of a Stoker feel to it, with some serious Near Dark inspiration. I’d be shocked if Jarmusch wasn’t a huge fan of the 80′s classic…

Set against the romantic desolation of Detroit and Tangier, an underground musician, deeply depressed by the direction of human activities, reunites with his resilient and enigmatic lover. Their love story has already endured several centuries at least, but their debauched idyll is soon disrupted by her wild and uncontrollable younger sister. Can these wise but fragile outsiders continue to survive as the modern world collapses around them?

    I think I’ll pass on this one.
