Check out this first new image of Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston in Jim Jarmusch's vampire tale "Only Lovers Left Alive." The film also stars Mia Wasikowska, John Hurt and Anton Yelchin.

It centers on Adam (Hiddleston), a centuries-old underground musician whose attempts at a rekindled romance with Eve (Swinton) are foiled by her tempestuous younger sister (Wasikowska). Swinton cameoed in Jarmusch's last effort, 2009's "The Limits of Control."

Jarmusch, who funds his indie efforts with overseas coin, will likely debut "Only Lovers Left Alive" at this year's Cannes Film Festival.
