Watch Bill Murray Battle Zombies in New ‘The Dead Don’t Die’ Footage


Bill Murray was famously (or infamously) killed while dressed as a zombie in 2009’s Zombieland, but now he’s the one slaying the undead in the upcoming comedy The Dead Don’t Die.


We saw the awesome first trailer for the Jim Jarmusch film back in April, and now we’re getting a slightly different look at Murray’s zombie-killing cop in action thanks to a new featurette. The promo video, which is a somewhat disappointingly short 24 seconds, gives viewers instructions on how to kill a zombie. For anyone interested, they are as follows: 1. Choose your weapon. 2. Kill the head. 3. Repeat. And that’s it! You are now prepared for the next zombie apocalypse.


The featurette shows some interesting clips for each step, including Tilda Swinton’s character choosing a samurai sword as her weapon and Murray blasting off a zombie’s head with a shotgun. The video ends rather ominously, with Murray and his fellow cops (played by Adam Driver and Chloë Sevigny, respectively) sitting in their cruiser as a horde of zombies pounds on the car. “This is definitely going to end badly,” Driver says in the driest tone possible. Check it out below.



In addition to the previously mentioned stars, the movie features an absurdly stacked cast, including Danny Glover, Selena Gomez, Tom Waits, Iggy Pop, Carol Kane, RZA, and Steve Buscemi. As for Murray, he’s also rumored to return later this year in the Zombieland sequel, Zombieland: Double Tap. Given that he was killed in the original film, we’re guessing he’s coming back as an actual zombie this time. If that’s the case, then we may soon have a pseudo-trilogy of Bill Murray zombie movies. If that doesn’t give you a hankering for some braaaiiinnnns, then nothing will.
