Life After Beth is making its way to DVD and Blu-ray this fall and we've got a glimpse of the cover art for you. Somehow this one has entirely escaped me so far, so I'll be catching up on this news in time to check it out in the comfort of my living room.
You can get this one on October 21, courtesy of Lionsgate. Supplementary material includes an audio commentary with writer/director Jeff Baena and stars Aubrey Plaza, Dane DeHaan and Matthew Gray Gubler. There's also deleted scenes and a behind-the-scenes featurette. Consumers can choose between DVD, Blu-ray, and Digital HD download.

Horror movies need to have a metaphor. Slasher movies are historically about our attitudes about sex, Nightmare on Elm Street is about the fear we have of not being able to protect our children, even Shaun of the Dead was about the dangers of complacency. I bring this up because Life After Beth has a terrible time conveying its metaphor. Sometimes it seems to want to be about dealing with grief, other times it seems to be about moving on after a break up, it sometimes even feels like it’s trying to draw an equivocation between those two feelings. Unfortunately, it never picks exactly what its about and it makes the film feel directionless and kind of boring.
Aubrey Plaza is a delight to watch in this movie. Overlaying a kind of flighty 21 year-old girl with a person slowly turning into a zombie is a stellar idea and Plaza »

Guardians of the Galaxy was a movie packed full of memorable moments, and now Marvel have cleverly decided to officially release one which many fans have called the best by far.
That’s right, it’s the dancing baby Groot from the movie’s mid-credits scene, and writer/director James Gunn revealed in a recent interview that, “It was initially written as a tag for the very end of the film, but after we shot it, it worked so well I wanted to put it at the actual end of the film so none of the audience would miss it.”
A smart decision, especially as many moviegoers still leave the cinema before the credits finish (something they should really know better than to do by now based on Marvel’s past efforts).

If you’ve not seen Guardians of the Galaxy yet, you’ll probably want to skip this post…
Yesterday Marvel Studios released the dancing Groot scene from Guardians of the Galaxy (which we have for you here), and now a batch of high-resolution images have popped up online via Stitch Kingdom, which includes a couple of shots of Nathan Fillion’s monstrous inmate, as well as Howard the Duck…

In this weekend’s specialty box-office debuts, IFC Films hopes to replicate the critical and commercial success of Michael Winterbottom’s first amusing little travelogue/talker of a feature, The Trip, with a semi-sequel, The Trip To Italy. The second Trip again stars Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon; the entertainingly garrulous pair on yet another jaunt across restaurants, countryside and philosophy. The latest Trip will bow in NYC and La this weekend after a successful Australian run earlier this summer (or their winter).
Frank, a British-Irish-American drama from Magnolia Pictures featuring Michael Fassbender that had runs at Sundance and SXSW, bows in only one U.S. theater this weekend. Frank centers on an eccentric band, giving Fassy fans a chance to hear the Oscar-nominated actor sing, albeit from behind a mask (he’s not bad, actually).

When you think about taking a grounded approach to bringing a zombie apocalypse to screen, you might go right to dark, gritty and super violent, but writer-director Jeff Baena took a different approach to it. He strove to make his zombie apocalypse real not by upping the body count, but rather by highlighting interpersonal dynamics and specifically by focusing on what might happen if someone’s (Dane DeHaan) recently deceased girlfriend (Aubrey Plaza) came back home in Life After Beth. With the film making its way towards an August 15th limited release, Baena and DeHaan sat down to talk about developing the idea, its unique blend of comedy and drama, one very heavy stove, whether or not they could survive a zombie apocalypse themselves and more. Hit the jump to check it out. Question: I read that you wanted to make a more grounded and realistic zombie movie. Where do »

Hitting theaters this Friday, the zombie comedy drama Life After Beth marks the debut feature of writer/director Jeff Baena (whose previous credit is as a writer on David O. Russell's I Heart Huckabees).
Dane DeHaan stars as Zach Orfman, a young man whose world has been shaken following the sudden death of his girlfriend, Aubrey Plaza's Beth Slocum. Things get weird, though, when Beth simply comes back to life with no memory of having ever died. Now, Zach has to deal with his now-undead girlfriend (who seems to be getting increasingly more undead), Beth's overprotective parents (played by John C. Reilly and Molly Shannon) and his gun-loving older brother, Kyle (Matthew Gray Gubler), who goes on a bit of a power trip when more of the recently deceased start coming back.

This is a re-run of our interview with Aubrey Plaza, Matthew Gray Gubler and the cast of "Life After Beth" from the 2014 Sundance Film Festival. Sometimes the chemistry on a set works just perfectly, and you can just tell the cast had a ball making the movie. Such is the case with “Life After Beth,” Jeff Baena’s directorial debut, which premiered last week at the Sundance Film Festival. The zombie comedy has a lively cast led by Aubrey Plaza and Dane DeHaan, with comic talents Anna Kendrick, Molly Shannon, John C. Reilly, Matthew Gray Gubler, Cheryl Hines and Paul Reiser offering zany support. Baena, who co-wrote “I Heart Huckabees” with David O. Russell over a decade ago (and is Plaza's boyfriend today), here offers a fresh and funny take on what can be an overplayed genre. Rather than highlighting the zombies’ flesh-eating qualities, the film focuses on the love »

Any true Michael Cera fan knows the actor also has musical skills – from adding backing vocals and guitar to Weezer's Hurley to playing live bass for indie-rock supergroup Mister Heavenly to strumming nerdily in this adorable scene from Juno. But now Cera's taken a bigger step into the music world with a solo album, true that, which he quietly posted last week on Bandcamp.
With Guardians of the Galaxy currently tearing up the global box office, director James Gunn is already hard at work developing the sequel to the space opera, which has been confirmed as hitting cinemas as part of Marvel’s Phase Three on July 28th 2017. Speaking to Empire, Gunn has offered up a few thoughts on where Guardians of the Galaxy 2 may go, beginning with Peter Quill’s (Chris Pratt) parentage:
“There have been a lot of documents passed around about who Peter Quill’s father is between a select two or three of us. That’s been part of the plan since the beginning, that’s something I had to work out before we shot the screenplay. We wanted to make sure Yondu’s place in everything made sense and it does, so it’s all very specific stuff… It’s definitely not the character who it is in the comics, »

"Life After Beth" is a zombie movie, but it's a world away from George Romero or "The Walking Dead." The demented romcom follows a hopeless romantic (Dane DeHaan of "Kill Your Darlings") who discovers that his dead girlfriend (Aubrey Plaza of "Parks and Recreation") has come back to life in a zombified, sometimes violent, always horny form. The two try to navigate a relationship as their town slowly transforms into a zombie stomping ground. We caught up with Plaza and DeHaan to discuss the weirdest things they've done for a laugh, their costars John C. Reilly and Molly Shannon, and the secrets of making a funny, scary movie. "Life After Beth" opens August 15. »

Moviefone's Top DVD of the Week
What's It About? Tom Hardy stars as a construction foreman who's driving to London to attend the birth of his child. You really shouldn't have stressful conversations on your cell while driving, but Ivan (Hardy) doesn't care. He has to make sure his big job tomorrow goes as planned, confess to his wife that he cheated on her with a co-worker, and coaching the aforementioned co-worker through the premature birth of their baby. Yikes.
Why We're In: Hardy is more than capable of commanding the screen for the entirety of the movie. Although you hear other characters' voices, it's all Hardy, all the time. Who could argue with that?
