Leave it to Jim Jarmusch to reinvigorate vampire mythology.
Because let’s be honest, there is not much untouched ground left to tread on in this genre.
Thankfully, based on this trailer, Jarmusch is not interested in the traditional aspects of vampire horror. He’s more interested in how an “alien”, advanced race views humanity, while struggling to contain their primitive, violent sides.
The cast, as is usually the case in a Jarmusch film, is stellar featuring his muse Tilda Swinton, the charming and affable Tom Hiddleston.
Only Lovers Left Alive stars Tilda Swinton, Tom Hiddleston, John Hurt, Jeffrey Wright and Mia Wasikowska. The film is directed by Jim Jarmusch.
Jim Jarmusch’s ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE tells the tale of two fragile and sensitive vampires, Adam (Tom Hiddleston) and Eve (Tilda Swinton), who have been lovers for centuries. Both are cultured intellectuals with an all-embracing passion for music, literature and science, who have evolved to a level where they no longer kill for sustenance, but still retain their innate wildness.
Transcendence stars Johnny Depp, Rebecca Hall, Cillian Murphy, Clifton Collins Jr., Paul Bettany, Kate Mara, and Morgan Freeman. The film is directed by Wally Pfister and is produced by Christopher Nolan. Transcendence is scheduled for release April 18, 2014.
Dr. Will Caster (Johnny Depp) is the foremost researcher in the field of Artificial Intelligence, working to create a sentient machine that combines the collective intelligence of everything ever known with the full range of human emotions. His highly controversial experiments have made him famous, but they have also made him the prime target of anti-technology extremists who will do whatever it takes to stop him.
However, in their attempt to destroy Will, they inadvertently become the catalyst for him to succeed—to be a participant in his own transcendence. For his wife Evelyn (Rebecca Hall) and best friend Max Waters (Paul Bettany), both fellow researchers, the question is not if they can…but if they should.
Their worst fears are realized as Will’s thirst for knowledge evolves into a seemingly omnipresent quest for power, to what end is unknown. The only thing that is becoming terrifyingly clear is there may be no way to stop him.
