The 'Thor' star is broody and wary as he plays a depressed vampire in this romance drama supported by Tilda Swinton and Mia Wasikowska.
Tom Hiddleston is a vampire living in a modern world as a rockstar in the first trailer for "Only Lovers Left Alive". Instead of showing the glamour that usually comes with the fame, the video gives a look at his depression while he's trying to fit in among humans.
As his frustration with the society gets worse, his decade-long wife (Tilda Swinton) who lives on the other side of the globe rushes to his side to give him new strength to live. But the couple's reunion is spoiled by her reckless younger sister who shows up unannounced.
Mia Wasikowska plays the younger sister. Jeffrey Wright, John Hurt and Anton Yelchin also join the cast. The romance vampire drama was nominated for the Palme d'Or at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival earlier this year. Sony Pictures has secured its distribution rights in the U.S. but hasn't announced any release date.
