A Zombie apocalypse occurs and “The greatest zombie cast ever disassembled” are right at the heart of it in The Dead Don't Die!
Jim Jarmusch has written and directed the new comedy film in which zombies take over Centerville. This is Jarmusch's first release since the documentary ‘Gimme Danger'. This was about Iggy Pop and his band The Stooges. Iggy features in The Dead Don't Die as a coffee obsessed zombie!
Joining Iggy Pop is an all-star cast that includes Bill Murray, Adam Driver, Selina Gomez, Danny Glover, Chloe Sevigny, Tilda Swinton and many more.
Right from the start of the trailer we're greeted with zombie action. Iggy Pops zombie forces his way into a diner and attacks the waitress' that work there. This leads to Police Chief Cliff Robertson (Bill Murray) and Officer Ronald Peterson (Adam Driver) investigating the area. Nothing much happens in the small town of Centerville, that has a population of 738.
After looking around the diner Cliff Robertson says it is “maybe the worst thing I've ever seen”. Confused to what it might be Ronald Peterson suggests it could be zombies, to Robertson's bemusement.
The zombies aren't attracted to people, more to things they used to do when they were alive. This explains the zombie walking around saying ‘Chardonnay'.
Then we are introduced to Tilda Swinton's character. She is a morgue worker however her real passion in life is Japanese swordplay. She says ” I'm quite confident in my ability to defend myself against the undead”.
Between the three police officer and the sword wailing morgue worker, they must try and protect themselves and the rest of Centerville. But will the road to survival be a dead end?
