The first trailer for writer-director Jim Jarmusch’s Only Lovers Left Alive is now available. The picture stars Tilda Swinton (Moonrise Kingdom) and Tom Hiddleston (The Avengers) as Eve and Adam, two vampires who have been in love for centuries. That basic plot description is a bit bland, so it comes as a nice surprise that this first look at the film is decidedly more emotionally complex and visually interesting. Our own Phil Brown had a chance to see the film at TIFF 2013, so you can read up on his review here.
Also starring Mia Wasikowska (Stoker), John Hurt (Immortals), Jeffrey Wright (Boardwalk Empire), and Anton Yelchin (Star Trek Into Darkness), Only Lovers Left Alive debuts internationally early this December, but no domestic release date has been set just yet. Hit the jump to watch the trailer.

Jim Jarmusch’s wry, tender and moving take on the vampire genre features Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston as a centuries-old couple who watch time go by from separate continents as they reflect on the ever-changing world around them. A Sony Pictures Classics release.
