A new U.S. trailer for director Jim Jarmusch’s love story Only Lovers Left Alive, aka “the Tom Hiddleston vampire movie”, has been released online. Hiddleston stars alongside Tilda Swinton as two vampires who have been in love for centuries. This trailer certainly showcases an offbeat tone, but the film actually looks to be quite romantic and, surprisingly, funny. As individuals who have been alive for a very, very long time, the principal characters have a unique outlook on life and culture and they aren’t afraid to share it. This also looks to be a wonderful performance showcase for Hiddleston and Swinton.
Hit the jump to watch the new domestic trailer. The film also stars Mia Wasikowska, John Hurt, Anton Yelchin, and Jeffrey Wright. Only Lovers Left Alive opens in theaters April 11th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Only Lovers Left Alive:
Jim Jarmusch’s ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE tells the tale of two fragile and sensitive vampires, Adam (Tom Hiddleston) and Eve (Tilda Swinton), who have been lovers for centuries. Both are cultured intellectuals with an all-embracing passion for music, literature and science, who have evolved to a level where they no longer kill for sustenance, but still retain their innate wildness.
