Bite Into First Trailer For Jim Jarmusch's Vampire Film Only Lovers Left Alive

No comments: Links to this post
When Jim Jarmusch announced he was to make a counter vampire film to Twilight he was greeted great sarcasm now few years on that film Only Lovers Left Alive has it's first trailer and we have to say we love what we're seeing!

Love him or hate him when a filmmaker such as Jarmusch dips his fingers into a genre you wouldn't expect from his stature it can be quite exciting to see the end product. After receiving fairly positive response from Cannes, Toronto and New York fans of the director can breathe easily Only Lovers Left Alive has all the trademark weirdness, stylings you want to see.

Set against the romantic desolation of Detroit and Tangier, Adam (Tom Hiddleston) an underground musician, deeply depressed by the direction of human activities, reunites with his resilient and enigmatic lover Eve (Tilda Swinton). 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?

This isn't a vampire film that's  focusing on sterotypical cliches of the vampire mythos but has the mythology on parallel with drug addiction looks to work well as our lead characters ive a rock  'n' roll lifestyle. It looks minimal, stylish more engaging than other vampire flicks you'll probably see.

Ony Lovers Left Alive doesn't have a official UK or even U.S release date however the film's rights have just been picked up by Sony Picture Classic so expect a release date probably 2014. The film also stars Mia Wasikowska, John Hurt and Anton Yelchin.

Vampire thmesd television and movies are poping up all due to the success of Twilight series and its not just Hollywood in Korea they have a new one HERO directed by Kim Hong-ik.
The trailer is really a 30 second teaser and though we dont get much insight into the story we can clearly see the movie is been aimed at the age group associated with Twilight, which to me is a little off putting. However theres signs that Ik's went for a more darker grittier edge plus giving the vamps a new look as in compared to the usual suspects in the genre, more blood less buffy.

Synopsis: Sim-dan gets bullied everyday in his school, becomes a vampire after an unexpected accident. After accepting this change, and thanks to his new found power, he saves a blind person who falls onto the track in front of a subway train. His story goes on air on TV news all over the nation, and many people start to call him a Hero. On the other hand, Sim-dan's friends start to wonder about how this power will effect him, and what is the true nature and intent of the dark force rising behind him, that’s returned after such a long sleep
