This Trailer for Only Lovers Left Alive is Full of Distressingly Attractive People

Only Lovers Left Alive, Tom Hiddleston, Tilda Swinton

We’re having a hard time describing the trailer for Only Lovers Left Alive (you know, that vampire movie with Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston) because we’re honestly still not sure what the movie is about after watching it.

Does it matter? Not even slightly.

Ultimately, it looks like John Hurt might be up to no good, there’s a plot involving special bloods of some kind, Anton Ylechin and Mia Wasikowska are involved as drugged up vampire kiddies, and Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston spend their time being generally perfect and in various states of undress or begruding fashionability.

There is no reason not to see it. It will hit UK cinemas on February 21, but there is sadly no release dates for the states. Yet. (Also, this trailer has Greek subtitles, so we're sorry about that. Unless you read Greek, in which case, hooray!)

At this point, I'm beginning to think they're deliberately tormenting us by refusing to set a release date in the US.

The beautiful thing about this film is it's about nothing in particular, i.e. there is no big overarching plot as in every othe vampire movie. Sure, there is some action, but basicaly it's about everyday life of vampires - and that's the beauty of it.

Seen in at a film festival in Wroclaw. The theater was full, with people sitting on the stairs. The screening ended with a standing ovation.

@3. So it's the Seinfeld of vampire movies? Cool! Where do I sign?

So does the title mean that the only people who are left alive are lovers, or that some particular pair of lovers are the only lovers still alive.

-asking the tough questions-

@ Jake

Actually, the title is explained in the very last scene of the movie, so... no spoilers! :-)
