The festival calls it a “humorous and sometimes scary subversion of the genre but also a tribute to cinema itself.”

Focus Features will release The Dead Don’t Die in the U.S. on June 14.

Cannes’ lineup will be announced April 18. The jury that will decide the Palme d’Or will be led by filmmaker Alejandro Inarritu.
