Thor star Tom Hiddleston and renowned actress Tilda Swinton appear naked together in the first trailer for indie vampire flick Only Lovers Left Alive.
Writer-director Jim Jarmusch (Ghost Dog, Broken Flowers) describes the movie as being a “crypto-vampire love story” and it certainly seems packed with dark drama.
The story follows the plight of vampires Hiddleston and Swinton, aptly named Adam and Eve, who are reunited having been in love for centuries.
The arrival of Eve’s sister Ava (Mia Wasikowska) disrupts the couple, who are trying to adapt to their new surroundings and the human race – something underground musician Adam is struggling with.
John Hurt, who will star in the Doctor Who 50th anniversary episode, joins the cast as Marlowe. Hurt’s character is seen to help the blood-thirsty pair while they escape the so-far unknown threat that Ava has brought to their door.
The flick received praise at this year’s Cannes Film Festival and with secrets, vampires and intense romance, what’s not to look forward to?
