Tilda Swinton And Tom Hiddleston Are Vampires In Heat In Only Lovers Left Alive Clips Author: Kristy Puchko (CINEMA BLEND)

Sometimes a movie so fantastically bizarre comes together that it sounds like it's some sort of brilliant Madlib. That's how I lovingly think of Only Lovers Left Alive, a romantic drama written and directed by art house auteur Jim Jarmusch that stars Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton as vampire lovers. It seems utterly outlandish, and yet oddly perfect. In the film, Hiddleston plays a vampire/rock musician called Adam. Swinton is his Eve, literally—her name is Eve. And together these two live in undead bliss…until Eve's spunky little sister Ava (played by Stoker's Mia Wasikowska) turns up.

Only Lovers Left Alive is poised to make its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival on May 25th. And in anticipation of its debut, io9 has uncovered a pair of clips that give us our first look at these lovers in action. Up top is a clip that shows Adam and Eve reuniting. Even without True Blood-styled speedy vamp sex, it's pretty damn hot, yet totally SFW. Watching this, it's easy to see why Hiddleston was considered for The Crow reboot.
