Check Out the Zombies from Jim Jarmusch’s THE DEAD DON’T DIE!

19 June 2019

Universal Pictures have just unveiled a ton of new stills from Jim Jarmusch’s 13th feature, the zom-com, THE DEAD DON’T DIE.

In the sleepy small town of Centerville, something is not quite right. The moon hangs large and low in the sky, the hours of daylight are becoming unpredictable and animals are beginning to exhibit unusual behaviors. No one quite knows why. News reports are scary and scientists are concerned. But no one foresees the strangest and most dangerous repercussion that will soon start plaguing Centerville: THE DEAD DON’T DIE — they rise from their graves and savagely attack and feast on the living — and the citizens of the town must battle for their survival.

Jarmusch is no stranger to genre cinema, having taken familiar plot elements and conventions in the past and given them his own unique twist like 1995’s western DEAD MAN, 1999’s samurai feature GHOST DOG: THE WAY OF THE SAMURAI and 2013’s vampire film ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE.

THE DEAD DON’T DIE features “the greatest cast ever disassembled” which includes Bill Murray, Adam Driver, Tilda Swinton, Chloë Sevigny, Steve Buscemi, Danny Glover, Caleb Landry Jones, Rosie Perez, Iggy Pop, Selena Gomez, RZA, Sara Driver, Austin Butler, Luka Sabbat, Eszter Balint, Carol Kane and Tom Waits.

The film also reunites Jarmusch with many of his frequent collaborators including Director of Photography Frederick Elmes (NIGHT ON EARTH, BROKEN FLOWERS) and Editor Affonso Gonçalves (ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE, PATERSON).

THE DEAD DON’T DIE will open in Australian cinemas on Thursday October 24th.
