First Snap of Tilda Swinton, Tom Hiddleston in Jim Jarmusch’s Vampire Movie

Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston in ‘Only Lovers Left Alive’ (via IndieWire)

Talk about fabulous casting: Tilda Swinton and reigning Anglo Fan Favorites champ Tom Hiddleston have teamed up to play vampire lovers in maverick indie filmmaker Jim Jarmusch‘s latest flick, Only Lovers Left Alive. The folks over at IndieWire have released a first glimpse of the two locked in a embrace. The film tells the story of disaffected musician Adam (Hiddleston) and his lover Eve (Swinton), whose romance is intruded upon by Eve’s brash sister Ava (Jane Eyre‘s Mia Wasikowska). John Hurt and Anton Yelchin co-star.

What do you think? Particularly about Mr. Hiddleston’s hipster hair…

While not British himself - he was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri - he once received inordinate hospitality in London for sharing the name of a dead but beloved EastEnders character. His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
