TOM HIDDLESTON: Awesome New Photos & Director's Statement From Jim Jarmusch's 'Only Lovers Left Alive' NEWS BY OLIVER LYTTELTON (INDIEWIRE)


The last film to be unveiled in competition at Cannes this year is also one of the most anticipated: Jim Jarmusch's "Only Lovers Left Alive." A last-minute addition to the competition (presumably the print will still be wet, as it were, hence its late screening), it sees the idiosyncratic indie helmer assemble a superb cast including Tom Hiddleston, Tilda Swinton, Mia Wasikowska and Anton Yelchin, for a film that promises to be that rarest of things; a fresh take on the vampire movie.

We're still a few days away from the screening, but a host of enticing new photos from the film have arrived, along with an official synopsis and a director's statement from Jarmusch that lets us know what to expect. And we can't wait. Check them out below, and keep your eyes peeled for our review of "Only Lovers Left Alive" when it screens on the Croisette next Saturday.

Synopsis:  Set against the romantic desolation of Detroit and Tangier, an underground musician, deeply depressed by the direction of human activities, reunites with his resilient and enigmatic lover. 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?
