Aubrey Plaza is a Zombie in First 'Life After Beth' Trailer & Posters

We've already seen undead romance in Warm Bodies, but a completely different take on the concept comes in the form of Life After Beth, a romantic comedy starring Dane DeHaan and Aubrey Plaza. The Chronicle star plays a young man named Zach whose life is thrown into upheaval when his girlfriend unexpectedly dies. However, he has an unexpected and peculiar second chance when she comes back to life. I wanted to love this film at Sundance, it's kind of all over the place as far as the comedic tone and world in which the story takes place. It's hard to connect to, and part of that is due to the fact that DeHaan plays things a little too serious for a comedy like this. But maybe you'll end up liking it when you see it? Watch!
Here's the first trailer for Jeff Baena's Life After Beth, originally from MTV:
And here's two posters for the film as well, featuring DeHaan and Plaza:
Life After Beth is written and directed by Jeff Baena (I Heart Huckabees) and premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival. Dane DeHaan stars in the film as Zach, devastated by the unexpected death of his girlfriend, Beth (Aubrey Plaza). But when she miraculously comes back to life, Zach takes full advantage of the opportunity to share and experience all the things he regretted not doing with her before. However, the newly returned Beth isn't quite how he remembered her and, before long, Zach's whole world takes a turn for the worse. John C. Reilly, Anna Kendrick, Molly Shannon, Paul Reiser and Cheryl Hines all star in the film that A24 releases exclusively on DirecTV on July 17th, and in theaters on August 15th. Interested?

This looks like a fun twist on a tired and played out genre.

Trailer felt a little disjointed to me, but still entertaining. I'll wait until a rental.
