A rookie FBI agent, Mark Putnam, is sent to a small mining town in Kentucky along with his wife and new baby, where he begins cultivating informants and pursuing bank robbers and chop shop operators.

The Dead Don’t Die
The movie centers around the sleepy small town of Centerville and something is not quite right. The moon hangs large and low in the sky, the hours of daylight are becoming unpredictable, and even the animals are beginning to exhibit unusual behaviors.

Starring: Bill Murray, Adam Driver
