Tilda Swinton, Selena Gomez and Bill Murray talk about "The Dead Do not Die" at the Cannes Film Festival.
Kahn. Thousands of policemen, it's a secret how many, guarantee the security of the film festival.
However, the zombie invasion of cinemas in Jim Jarmusch's film can not stop.
Although at the press conference the film police take Bill Murray's command, with everything from jokes to jokes.
Bill Murray, 68, is not like other movie stars.
Twelve years ago, invited to a golf competition in Stockholm by his friend Jesper ParnevikThe evening ended with Murray's arrest by the police, not quite sober as he turned in the golf cart in the middle of Sturplan.
There are many stories about it. So, a few years ago, he suddenly appeared at a student party in Scotland, had a couple of hours to party, and then insisted on taking care of the struggle to end.
It also makes it difficult to flirt when it comes to work. You do not have an agent or manager, but those who want to work with him to read messages to an answering machine he listens to most often.
Get away with sexist jokes
When the director of The Dead did not die, Jim Jarmuschand actors Tilda Swinton, Хлое Севиньи, Selena Gomez and Murray took the podium in the press room at the festival, Murray immediately began to joke.
And he makes him so clever about the fear of zombies in Cannes, why he wants to work with Jarmush, why he wants to play at all that he even finally gets out with a sexist joke that should not land so well after #metoo,
My young Spanish colleague Laura Asking what to hunt in the next movie, after the ghosts (Ghostbusters) and Zombies (a new film) and if he believes in life after death.
He gets less nervous silence than laughter when Bill Murray watches her and says:
– I believe in life after death for some, but certainly not all. But I will pursue you. That's what I'm going to do, I'll pursue you.
Boots against Trump
In the movie Murray, Chloe Sevinii and Adam Driver (who had returned to New York after the Gala Premier, playing a theater there), three police officers trying to save a small American city where the zombies are gaining momentum.
On the radio, we are constantly hearing reports that climate change is a villain in the drama. Reaction farmer (Steve Bushemi) in the movie has a baseball cap with the words Make America white again,
Two clear, though slight jokes against Donald TrumpBut Jim Jarmusch tones the political message in the movie.
– The zombies as metaphors for many things … when I read the reviews this morning, one interprets things from the movie I have never thought of. Mostly I tried to make a funny movie George A. Romeros spirit, he has largely created the genre, he says.
Footnote: George Romero (1940-2017) formed the genre zombie film with "Night of the Living Dead" (1968) and "The Dawn of the Dead" (1978).
