It’s October 28th already, and you don’t have a Halloween costume. But worry not, because we’ve got your back.
Things We Saw Today: Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton as Vampire Lovers

Here’s the first pic from Jim Jarmusch‘s Only Lovers Left Alive, starring Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton as, you guessed it, vampire lovers. Named Adam and Eve, incidentally. No release date for this one yet, sorry folks. (/Film)
- This video of Anne Hathaway (OK, actress Emma Fitzpatrick) pleading for a Les Mis Oscar to the tune of I Dreamed a Dream is pretty dang funny. (via The Frisky)
- Easy A director Will Gluck has been tapped to direct the movie version of the musical Annie, which is being produced by Jay-Z and Will and Jada Pinkett Smith (their daughter Willow was originally going to star, but she’s too old now) and has a script originally written by Emma Thompson and being revised by The Devil Wears Prada scribe Aline Brosh McKenna. That is such random assortment of talent that this movie is either going to be awesome or absolutely terrible. (via Coming Soon)
- LucasFilm wants us to know that the 3D re-releases of Star Wars: Episodes II though VI are just postponed, not cancelled as previously reported. Oh, good. Always happy to hear about yet another Star Wars rerelease. Be right back, I have to go sob into my ABC soup for a minute… (via Nerd Approved)
Here’s a snow sculpture of Batman fighting a shark. You’re welcome. (via He Geek She Geek)
- Deadline reports that screenwriter David Seidler, who won an Oscar for The King’s Speech (meh), is writing The Lady Who Went Too Far, about the life of Lady Hester Stanhope, “who rejected London society in the early 1800s to travel across the Mediterranean and into the Middle East, where she played a major role in stifling Napoleon’s advances towards India.” Decidedly not “meh.” That sounds awesome.
- Yoko Ono, Gloria Steinem, and Lauren Bush are contributing jewelry designs to Maiden Nation‘s ImagiNation 365, a campaign that seeks to “empower women in the marketplace through ethically-themed fashion.” (via The Wall Street Journal)
- Female buddy cop comedy The Heat, starring Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy (trailer here), has been pushed back from April 5th to June 28th. (/Film)
