We saw the first trailer just last week and today the MPAA delivers the rating for Angelina Jolie's new movie in which she not only directs, but stars in opposite her husband, Brad Pitt, and it seems By the Sea won't only be touting the names of the two high profile celebs, but a strong R-rating along with it for "strong sexuality, nudity, and language." That'll heat up the cinema, though this looks like a bit of a tough drama than some sort of Fifty Shades sex romp. Speaking of... next up is yet another new Nicholas Sparks adaptation, this one is called The Choice starring Alexandra Daddario, Teresa Palmer, Maggie Grace, Tom Welling, Benjamin Walker and even Tom Wilkinson. PG-13 rating for this one... naturally. Oh, yeah, and guess where it takes place... If you said a "small coastal town", pat yourself on the back. A couple animated »

The post Burying the Ex Movie Review appeared first on Shockya.com. »
Now available on VOD and in select theaters is Joe Dante's (Gremlins, The 'Burbs) zombie comedy Burying the Ex. From a script by Alan Trezza, the film stars Anton Yelchin as Max, a nice guy eager to break up with his overbearing girlfriend Evelyn (Ashley Greene) when fate intervenes and she gets hit by a bus. Weeks later he meets his dream girl Olivia (Alexandra Daddario, who is making a career out of playing dream girls), but everything goes to hell when Evelyn rises from the grave convinced she and Max are still an item. After visiting the set last year (you can check out my on-set interviews with Greene here and Yelchin here), I recently had an opportunity to speak with Trezza about the film. He talked about going from a self-produced short film to landing Joe Dante as the director, what makes Dante so special, finding the right leads, »

There’s a regular opinion of popular filmmakers hitting their peak and not being able to make good films after said peak. Masters of horror such as Carpenter, Argento and Hooper are quite often thrown into those false statements because of a film here or there (sometimes more than one), and as fan of those filmmakers, it’s somewhat of an irritating thing to hear. After Gremlins/The Howling director Joe Dante gave audiences the family friendly film The Hole, those who were once Dante fanatics seemed to be throwing him into that awful opinion, not having realized that The Hole was pretty much a kids’ horror film. Proving the naysayers completely wrong with the zombie horror/comedy Burying The Ex, Dante returns with a fresh and rejuvenated approach, and a film that not only pay homage to the days of E.C. Comics, but to horror fans and Los Angeles as well. »

I’m a Joe Dante fan. That is something I cannot hide. His early work made him a horror icon, and Gremlins stands as one of my favorite movies of all time. These are facts, and if I ever get to meet Joe Dante, I’d like nothing more than to buy him a drink and hear him reminisce about the good old days. You know, the exciting, creative times that yielded scene after scene of infectious horror fun.
Basically, any time before Burying The Ex happened.
It’s not that Dante created a soulless romcom disguised as a cheeky horror comedy. It’s more that any voiceless filmmaker could have made Burying The Ex. No scene glistens with Dante’s typically demented polish, and everyone involved seems to be phoning it in. There’s not a single genuine moment of chemistry to be found between the three members of this undead love triangle, »

Actresses Adria Arjona and Leven Rambin sat down with GQ to discuss the upcoming second season of True Detective, and things got sexy. The interviewer kept on probing the actresses to reveal the details on the highly anticipated and secretive season two, but they wouldn't spill the beans. Recognizing her detective work was going nowhere, the interviewer shifted to getting to know the actresses with a game of f--k, marry, kill. Rambin knew who'd she'd like to get it on with right away, "You know who I'd f--k? Daddario." The actress Alexandra Daddario portrayed Lisa, one of Marty's (Woody Harrelson) mistresses in season one." Arjona »
Joe Dante has always been a filmmaker that I've deeply admired and I feel that a good amount of his work doesn't get discussed nearly enough. I completely get this talented filmmaker's attraction to the EC Comics-style concept in Burying the Ex, but Alan Trezza's script is too lazy and uninspired for this movie to be anywhere close to a comeback for Joe Dante.
Obviously made under time constraints and budget limitations, with the proper nourishment and a proper rewrite from Dante himself, I could easily see Burying the Ex in theory being a project that could compliment Dante's sensibilities. His trademark influences of Mel Blanc-inspired frenetic humor and the dark surrealistic atmosphere absorbed from monster movie matinees would have been the perfect marriage for this movie's living dead love triangle concept. All Joe Dante needed was a solid script, because everybody knows there is only so much »

Alexandra Daddario wrapped up being a badass in the disaster movie "San Andreas," and now she's taking on a more laid-back role in "Burying the Ex." She plays a completely alive person (as far as we know) whose boyfriend is trying to get rid of his crazy ex, who just so happened to come back from the dead.
To celebrate the release of her new zombie flick, Alexandra shared her five favorite movies ever. »

Alan Trezza's screenplay for "Burying The Ex" might as well have had Joe Dante's name above the title from the moment he wrote it, because it is a perfect fit for the filmmaker's sensibilities. Dante's three leads (Anton Yelchin, Ashley Greene, and Alexandra Daddario) are all game for whatever he asks of them, and they seem to be having a blast with the material. There's a slightly muted quality to the film, though, which keeps it from being a complete pleasure, but considering how rarely we get a new film from Dante, I'll take something slight over nothing at all. There's a hint of "Death Becomes Her" in this film's DNA, and in certain sequences, Dante's live-action cartoon aesthetic is pretty clearly expressed. If anything, I wish the movie pushed some of those ideas further, because it feels like Dante's having fun and so is the cast. Anton Yelchin plays Max, »

Plot: Max (Anton Yelchin) has a problem. He wants to break up with his overbearing girlfriend Evelyn (Ashley Greene) so he can date his dream girl, Olivia (Alexandra Daddario). Easier said than done when your girlfriend is a zombie! Review: Ah the zombie rom-com. What once seemed like a far-out, bonkers idea pre-Shaun Of The Dead has become a genre unto itself with movies like Warm Bodies, Life After Beth and... Read More »

Ex to Grind: Dante’s ZomCom Never Finds Its Pulse
Zombies are difficult subject matters for the screen. A staple of a popular subgenre, original narrative inspiration is rare in a field of low yield thrills from contemporary films unable to match the iconic masters, like early George Romero. Of course, every now and then, something innovative and exciting comes along, such as Danny Boyle’s 28 Days Later (2002), and it’s surprisingly energetic sequel. But increasingly, like all glorious horror tropes, comedy has taken the place of tension. Sometimes, in the right hands, this can also be inviting. So it’s disappointing to see a director like Joe Dante, the man who balanced these elements deftly in classics likes Piranha (1981), Gremlins (1984), and The ‘Burbs (1989) turn up with his latest, Burying the Ex. With its overtly fresh faced young cast and first time script from Alan Trezza (adapted from his own »

Burying the Ex is a romantic comedy with zombies, or rom-zom-com as I believe we’re supposed to refer to them. It stars Anton Yelchin as Max, a young man who works in horror supplies shop and happens to be in relationship with Ashley Greene’s Evelyn who whilst beautiful, is jealous, neurotic and annoying. Max decides to dump her but before he can do so, she is killed in a traffic accident. Shortly afterwards, Max starts seeing Olivia (Alexandra Daddario) but is unable to begin a new relationship properly as, due to a curse of unspecified nature, the reanimated corpse of Evelyn has risen from the grave and is very keen to »
