WATCH: 'Only Lovers Left Alive' Trailer, Plus Tom Hiddleston Charming Video Roundup

Thompson on Hollywood By Anne Thompson and Beth Hanna | Thompson on Hollywood November 5, 2013 at 7:39PM

The trailer for Jim Jarmusch's vampire romance "Only Lovers Left Alive" has arrived (watch below), and "Thor: The Dark World" hits theaters in a few days time. We like them both. So it seems like a good moment to pay tribute to star Tom Hiddleston's amazing ability to charm America in interviews and press rounds.

The trailer for Jim Jarmusch's best movie in a while, "Only Lovers Left Alive" (Sony Pictures Classics, 2014) has arrived, after the film's tour of the global fest circuit, from Cannes to New York (watch below), and "Thor: The Dark World" hits theaters in a few days. So it's a good moment to pay tribute to star Tom Hiddleston's amazing ability to charm America (and Korea, and beyond) in interviews and press rounds. A compilation of videos, below.

"Only Lovers Left Alive" stars Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton as exquisitely cool ancient vampires still in love after centuries--perhaps because they live on different continents. He morosely cruises the ghostly streets of a ruined, deserted Detroit (an inspired location), creates lush electronic music and collects vintage instruments provided by his discreet local dealer (Anton Yelchin). She roams the narrow lanes of Tangier to meet her beloved quality blood supplier (John Hurt). She finally pays her lover a visit in Detroit, where they are joined for a time by her mischievous sister (Mia Wasikowska). In this must-see romance, Jarmusch combines many of the things he adores (actors, music, books, visuals) in one deliciously entertaining film. 

Included in our video roundup are the dance moves Hiddleston unleashed to a crowd of screaming Korean fans, his now viral impression of Owen Wilson as Loki, yet another impression of fellow Avenger Chris Evans, the actor reading Shakespeare, and teaching Cookie Monster the term "delayed gratification."

Loki and Thor's bratty sibling rivalry, anchored by the outsized charisma of Hiddleston and Chris Hemsworth, is one of the stronger aspects of the fairly entertaining "Thor" sequel. Check out our review roundup of the film here.
