Tag: The Dead Don’t Die


So, it’s been two years ago to the day that we got this happy Adam at the Cannes film festival for the BlacKkKlansman premiere.

Spike Lee managed to create a movie that was tastefully funny, still relevant and shocking. If you haven’t already seen it, what are you waiting for?! Think I may even watch it tonight!

Anyway, this also got me thinking about what we have missed out on this week.
This should have been the Cannes Film Festival week and we should have been getting the premiere of Adam’s new film Annette. A musical of all things and one which is sung from start to finish. I have been waiting with baited breath to see this film. Like I’ve said before, as much as I like a good musical, I like a musical that is scripted and interspersed with songs. I don’t generally like musicals that are completely sung as a narrative. Adam is not a professional singer but he can hold a tune. It’s going to be really interesting and raw. I’m either going to love it or hate it, and I am so hoping that I love it!!

Adam has had 5 movies premiere at the last 4 festivals.
In 2016 it was Paterson. A quirky Jim Jarmusch movie.

That same year, I actually won tickets to see this film at the Picturehouse Central in London with Adam doing a Q+A afterwards. It was an amazing evening and that very Q+A is on the DVD release!

2017 saw The Meyerowitz Stories released. Adam did not attend this one.

He made up for it in 2018 with not one, but two movies. BlacKkKlansman and The Man Who Killed Don Quixote. Adam was there and attended the red carpets for both films.

In 2019 he was there for another Jim Jarmusch film, The Dead Don’t Die.

Not the greatest zombie movie ever made, but another quirky Jim Jarmusch film.

So, this year we are left hanging. With the cancellation of the Cannes Film Festival because of the world shut down, we have no idea when Annette will actually be released.
I just hope it will be worth the wait.

Having a look through the BBC news site, I came across an article about films being shown at the Cannes Film Festival this year.
I came across the following……

“The French festival – billed as ‘The Olympics of cinema’ will open with a screening of Jim Jarmusch’s zombie comedy The Dead Don’t Die, which contains a star-studded cast including Bill Murray, Iggy Pop and Selena Gomez, as well as Tilda Swinton and Tom Waits”.

Two and a half years after starring in Paterson…….

a film about a poetry writing bus driver called Paterson from Paterson, New Jersey and directed by Jim Jarmusch, Adam Driver is once again being directed by Jim in zombie movie ‘The Dead Don’t Die’.

Anyone who knows me, knows I’m not a huge zombie fan.
That said, I enjoyed ‘Zombieland’ and funny enough, ‘The Dead Don’t Die’ also stars one of the cast from that very film. Bill Murray.

“The peaceful town of Centerville finds itself battling a zombie horde as the dead start rising from their graves”.
Doesn’t sound like anything special……. except it’s directed by Jim Jarmusch and stars Adam and Bill.

Of course, I will be going to see this film. Adam is in it! Why wouldn’t I, and just look at the other cast listed in it.

And with Jim’s quirky way of filming, I am in no doubt that this film will be well worth the watch.

The film will be premiering at, and actually opening the Cannes Film Festival this May, and Adam has been confirmed as attending the festival yet again. He has a bit of a history at the festival with ‘Paterson’ in 2016 being nominated for the Palme d’Or and ‘BlackKklansman’ in 2018 winning the Grand Prize of the Jury and also getting a nomination for Palme d’Or.

Good luck Adam and Jim!
