Straight from Cannes: Jim Jarmusch’s hilarious, philosophical zombie film stars Bill Murray, Adam Driver and Chloë Sevigny as small-town cops battling the undead.

It's hard to argue with The Dead Don't Die's claim to have “the greatest zombie cast ever disassembled”. With a roster of stars including Tilda Swinton, Danny Glover, Selena Gomez, Luka Sabbat, Iggy Pop, RZA and Tom Waits, the scene is set for all manner of mayhem. Centerville, population 738, is a close-knit town where not a lot ever happens. A series of unnatural occurrences triggers widespread panic and, even worse, the dead start rising from their graves, with an appetite for living flesh. As ever, the rule “if you've got to kill the dead, kill the head” applies, but these are resilient zombies, and constantly growing in number. Jarmusch handles the well-trodden genre with levity and extreme strangeness – and the result is a joy to behold.
