"There's a freaky Tim Burton movie in your living room." If the indie horror comedy Life After Beth didn't deliver the right kind of zombie romantic comedy you were hoping for, maybe Burying the Ex from Gremlins director Joe Dante is more your speed. Anton Yelchin stars in the story of a young man who thinks he's met the perfect girl in Evelyn (Ashley Greene), but then becomes a nightmare to deal with at home. But it doesn't seem to be a problem anymore when she dies, leaving him to fall in love with another girl (Alexandra Daddario). But that's when Evelyn comes back from the dead to complicate things in the worst way, and the first international trailer shows off the messy results of that story unfolding. Watch?
Here's the first trailer for Joe Dante's Burying the Ex from Voltage Pictures:
Burying the Ex is directed by Joe Dante (Gremlins, Small Soldiers) and written by first-time writer Alan Trezza, based on his short film of the same name. Max has just moved in with Evelyn, his beautiful girlfriend (Ashley Greene). But when Evelyn turns out to be a controlling, manipulative nightmare, Max knows it’s time to call it quits. Before he can, fate steps in when Evelyn is involved in a freak accident and dies, leaving Max single and ready to mingle with Olivia (Alexandra Daddario). That is until Evelyn returns from the grave and wants her boyfriend back, even if that means making him one of the undead. The film played at the Venice International Film Festival and hits limited theaters in the United States June 19th.
