The Nicholas Sparks juggernaut just keeps rolling along. Until, that is, the tragic-but-manly juggernaut meets its perfect match in a curvy, rich delivery truck and they drive off into the sunset together.

Gremlins director Joe Dante is set to enter the crowded zombie movie market with his new feature Burying the Ex, and we’ve got your first sneak peek at the zom-rom-com (say that five times fast). Anton Yelchin, Ashley Greene and Alexandra Daddario star in this twisted tale of love from beyond the grave, which has it Venice Film Festival debut today. Yelchin plays a young man who must deal with his clingy undead girlfriend (Greene), who refuses to let the relationship die even though she’s passed on. That’s bad news for Yelchin, who’s looking to move on with his life by hooking up with a living, breathing, significant other (Daddario). The premise isn’t entirely new, but what is in the zombie field these days? What really matters is that the...

As I mentioned yesterday when we debuted some images from his newest film Burying the Ex, I’m a huge fan of director Joe Dante. His filmography is vast and contains some of my very favorite movies (Gremlins, The Howling, The ‘Burbs, Innerspace and Gremlins 2: The New Batch among them). Burying the Ex, which premieres today at the Venice Film Festival, seems very much like a Dante film but also feels like a bit of a departure for the genre vet. I haven’t had a chance to see it yet but from what I gather it’s a somewhat contained look at relationships that really focusses in on four central characters. One of whom just happens to be rapidly decaying in all sorts of gory ways. I recently got a chance to speak with Dante about Burying the Ex. We talked about the casting process, the gore, the »

Our Fearless Leader's new film, Burying The Ex, premieres today at the Venice Film Festival. The touching story of "Boy meets girl, boy loses girl, girl becomes flesh-eating zombie" showcases four terrific young actors, Anton Yelchin (Star Trek, Fright Night), Ashley Greene (The Twilight Saga), Oliver Cooper (Project X) and True Detective's Alexandra Daddario. Here's an interview with Anton talking about Burying The Ex and the upcoming Star Trek. Joe describes his latest as a "zom-com" and that pretty much nails this fractured fairytale in which a young woman's death doesn't stop her from snuggling with her beloved boyfriend. Here's a recent interview with Joe via Shock Till You Drop. Here's the entry on the Venice Film Festival's site. And The Hollywood Reporter is first out of the gate with a thumbs-up for Burying The Ex! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0qQzxbQu7Ww

“He took what could have been B-movie exploitation and made it into arthouse cinema,” gush two Val Lewton enthusiasts at one point in Joe Dante’s comedy-horror doodle “Burying the Ex.” Dante, by contrast, has no such intentions with this of a nerdy horror fanatic (Anton Yelchin) struggling to shake the zombified, zealously clingy corpse of his micromanaging g.f. (Ashley Greene). Unflattering similarities to the recent, superior zom-rom-com “Life After Beth” aren’t the only factor portending a swift interment for this listless return from the beloved director, with VOD the likeliest avenue of access for devoted cultists.
Four years have passed since Dante last came to the Lido with his nifty 3D kids’ adventure “The Hole,” an imperfect effort that nonetheless suggested the alterna-Spielberg of the multiplex had regained some of his energy and invention. His idiosyncrasies have been firmly tamped down, however, in this visually inert new effort, »

Last seen on the Venice Lido in 2009 with his acclaimed 3D horror The Hole, Joe Dante returns to the festival with the disappointing schlock fest that is Burying the Ex. All I wanted to bury was my head in my hands during the screening of this tired, cheap and cliché-ridden film.
Our hero is Max (Anton Yelchin), a shop assistant at Boo Mary’s, selling Halloween costumes and horror gimmicks while classic horror movies play on a loop on a TV screen. His girlfriend Evelyn (Ashley Greene) is an eco-blogger who – despite being up for skipping work to have sex with Max when a consignment of naughty nurse costumes arrives – is not actually that much fun.

Getting its premiere out of competition at this year's Venice Film Festival is Joe Dante's Burying The Ex. The zombie rom-com - fast becoming its own sub-subgenre - stars Anton Yelchin, Ashley Greene and Alexandra Daddario, and to herald its undead arrival, a quick clip has just lurched online. It finds Greene suffering a spot of neck trouble.In one of those unfortunate occasional clashes of content Burying The Ex, on paper at least, has exactly the same premise as Life After Beth, which will beat it to release. It involves Greene being killed in a freak accident, but returning from the dead and expecting to carry on her relationship with Yelchin as if nothing is askew. The trouble is, he's already romantically moved on with Daddario.Jeff Baena's Life After Beth has an almost identical love triangle with an undead Aubrey Plaza and a still-living Dane DeHaan and Anna Kendrick. »
Gremlins director Joe Dante has always made entertaining films. One of my favorites is The 'Burbs with Tom Hanks. Dante has jumped into the world of zombies for his next film called Burying the Ex, and today we have the first clip from the zombie romantic comedy.
The movie stars Anton Yelchin and Ashley Greene, and it's set to premiere at the Venice Film Festival. It seems to have an entertaining story that is perfect for Dante's style, and the clip that was released gives us a fun look at the what this movie will be like.
The film follows Max (Yelchin), an all-around nice guy, and his overbearing but incredibly beautiful girlfriend, Evelyn (Greene). Their relationship takes a nosedive after they decide to move in together and Evelyn turns out to be a controlling, manipulative nightmare. Max realizes it's time to call it quits, but there's just one problem: »
