Sharpen those fangs and bust out some soulful rock tunes: the wait for Tom Hiddleston’s vampire flick is nearly over.

The much anticipated Only Lovers Left Alive finally has a released date for those in the US. In a tweet released recently, Recorded Picture announced when fans could flock to the cineplexes to see the film.

Only Lovers Left Alive, written and directed by the critically acclaimed Jim Jarmusch (Dead Man, Broken Flowers, Limits of Control) takes place against the romantic desolation of Detroit and Tangier and follows an underground musician, played by Thor’s Tom Hiddleston, deeply depressed by the direction of human activities, who reunites with his resilient and enigmatic lover, played by Oscar winner Tilda Swinton.

Their eternal love story has endured several centuries at least, but their debauched hedonistic idyll is disrupted by her wild and uncontrollable younger sister. Mia Wasikowska, John Hurt, and Anton Yelchin also star in the film which premiered at Cannes earlier this year.

The film also headlined the Toronto International Film Festival and the New York Film Festival recently, and is now headed to be one of the featured films at the Sundance Film Festival, slated to begin later on in January.

In the meantime, you can catch Hiddleston during his return to his theatre roots on the West End as Coriolanus in Donmar Warehouse’s production of the Shakespearean tragedy of the same name until February.
