MOVIES: The Dead Don't Die (2019)
After idyllic Paterson, Jim Jarmusch returns to the screens with a freshly-made zombie comedy, The Dead Don't Die. The cast involves actors familiar to the viewers from Jarmusch's previous movies, such as Adam Driver, who changed his career of a bus driver to this of a police officer, and Tilda Swinton, who, from a vampire in Only Lovers Left Alive turned into a zombie fighter. Premiering on the 4th of July, the movie is available in Kino Aero, Bio Oko, and Světozor, as well as Cinema City theaters. The trailer of the movie can be watched here.
