TV show description:
Neal Caffrey (Matt Bomer) -- a conman, forger, and thief -- is visited in jail by his girlfriend, but it doesn't go well. This leads him to make his escape from the maximum security federal prison to search for her. He's recaptured by the same FBI agent, Peter Burke (Tim DeKay), who previously sent him to jail. While out, he gives Burke some information concerning another case. That evolves into a deal that keeps Caffrey out of prison on a work release type of program. In exchange, he must help Burke catch other criminals. »
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: »

When will the zombie craze subside? According to our calculations: never. “If it ain’t broke” seems to be the sole reason in the current climate for perpetuating tales of the undead. One such sub-genre which has oddly enough flourished is the zombie comedy – aka the zom-com. First there was Warm Bodies, then Life After Beth, and now we’ve got the first clip from Burying The Ex.
Before you roll your eyes and click away, wait! There’s hope for this little gem – it’s directed by the man who brought us Gremlins, Joe Dante. It might not be the eighties anymore, and his recent output has shied away from obvious ghoul fests, but this could mark his return to the genre which made him famous.

Backed by Steven Spielberg in the 1980s, filmmaker Joe Dante would go on to make some incredible touchstones of cinema from that decade, including “The Howling,” “Gremlins,” it’s sequel, the cult-classic “The ‘Burbs,” “Explorers” and more. The ‘90s and aughts couldn’t quite live up to his incredible ‘80s run, but he did direct memorable pictures like "Matinee" and "Looney Tunes: Back in Action," and shot a lot of TV. But Dante is back, and he has a new zom-com about a young man whose regrets over moving in with his girlfriend are compounded when she dies and comes back as a zombie. Titled “Burying The Ex,” the movie makes its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival this week, and the first clip has arrived. The movie stars Anton Yelchin, Ashley Greene, Alexandra Daddario (“True Detective”) and Oliver Cooper. We’ve also got our hands on a few new photos too. »

Another clip has arrived at the Dread Central offices. This one is for Burying the Ex, the new film from master of horror Joe Dante (Gremlins, The Hole). As the zombie flick gets ready to burst up from the depths at the Venice Film Festival, check out a taste of what's to come.
Based on a short film of the same name, the Alan Trezza-penned script follows Max (Yelchin) and Evelyn (Greene) as their relationship takes a nose dive once they move in together.
Max discovers how controlling and manipulative Evelyn is, but he’s too scared to break up with her. When fate steps in and Evelyn dies in a freak accident, newly-single Max prepares to move on with Olivia (Daddario). His romantic life becomes complicated when Evelyn rises from »

Exclusive: Joe Dante has jumped into the zombie world with Burying The Ex, the Voltage Pictures’ romantic comedy starring Anton Yelchin and Ashley Greene and world premiering Thursday out of competition the Venice Film Festival. Greene plays an ex-girlfriend who dies in a freak accident but rises from the dead and expects her relationship with her boyfriend (Yelchin) to continue as normal — like if Dante’s Gremlins were clingy significant others. Problem is the boyfriend is ready to move on with True Detective‘s Alexandra Daddario. Check out the clip. »

Burying the Ex is the clever name for the latest horror-comedy to come from genre vet Joe Dante. The film, poised to make its debut this week at the Venice Film Festival, features a young cast that includes Star Trek's Anton Yelchin, the Twilight franchise's Ashley Greene and True Detective's Alexandra Daddario.
Yelchin plays a guy caught in a relationship with an overbearing woman (Greene) that he's afraid to cut ties with. She's sexy as hell, but a tad too much to deal with. When she's killed in a freak accident, he's free and it's not long until he finds a new romantic interest (Daddario) who is a better fit for his personality. His life takes a macabre turn, however, when his ex rises from the grave to give him hell.
While the film wasn't shown completely to press before its festival debut, I did get a peak »

I'm a huge fan of director Joe Dante. How could you not be at least a little bit in love with a career that encapsulates films like Gremlins, The Howling and The 'Burbs, not to mention one of the best sequels of all time, Gremlins 2: The New Batch? So I'm definitely looking forward to his new film Burying the Ex, which looks like it finds Dante back in the realm of horror comedy mayhem. The film premieres tomorrow at the Venice Film Festival in Italy and we're celebrating with some exclusive pics that depict Ashley Greene's character Evelyn in various states of zombie satiation. Hit the jump for the Burying The Ex images. The film also stars Anton Yelchin, Alexandra Daddario and Oliver Cooper. I was on the set of the film last year and it will definitely appeal to horror fans and cinema buffs in general. Check »

It’s no longer even an open secret that celebs don’t pick their own clothes for red carpet events, or any events really. They hire stylists, stylists have relationships with fashion houses, and fashion houses make strategic moves to have them aligned with the stars of the moment.
Take the impressive host of Lebanese designers: Elie Saab who dressed Julia Roberts in a short beaded frock, Nicholas Jebran who dressed Allison Janney in a long red velvet knotted dress and Zuhair Murad who dressed Camila Alves and Taylor Schilling. Some are up and comers, others, established designers, but would those actors have come upon these notable designers without the help of their stylists?
Matthew McConaughey has long been aligned with Dolce & Gabbana, and stuck with the label Monday night in a dashing navy tuxedo that recalled the ones he’s worn at other awards shows. Likewise, Octavia Spencer and Tadashi Shoji continued their relationship, »

Being a teenager isn't usually all it's cracked up to be, especially if you're a serial killer in the making. It definitely didn't get better for the chainsaw-wielding maniac at the center of "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" franchise, and we'll find out why in an upcoming prequel, appropriately titled "Leatherface."
What kind of unspeakable horrors happened in this chubby cannibal's childhood home? We can only picture what his parents must have packed in his lunchbox, and the sort of devastating social interactions that would have occurred in the cafeteria every day. We've gotten a glimpse of Leatherface's unmasked face before, and it was not pleasant; just imagine adding pimples to the mix. Then again, chances are slim 'lil Leatherface was even allowed to go to school.
Newcomer Seth M. Sherwood is writing the script, which is described as "an origin story that follows Leatherface's early years in the 1970s." 2013's »

Earlier this month, we brought you word that Texas Chainsaw‘s next installment might not be a direct sequel to 2013′s Texas Chainsaw 3D. Instead, Millenium Films was said to be mulling over a prequel centering on a teenage Leatherface. At the time, a writer was said to be in talks to pen a script for the project. Now, for better or worse, it’s been confirmed that the prequel, simply titled Leatherface, is up next for the franchise and will feature a script from Seth M. Sherwood.
Little is known with regard to the specifics of the plot, though Leatherface is said to be a ’70s-set origin story which will take place before Tobe Hooper’s original film. As such, it’s unlikely that Texas Chainsaw 3D star Alexandra Daddario, originally expected to become the series’ new lead actress after that film, will be returning outside of a possible cameo appearance. »

Just when you thought there was not a chance of seeing a franchise get destroyed any further, we now have an official title and a screenwriter for the next installment/reboot of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Following last year's lackluster Texas Chainsaw 3D starring the gorgeous Alexandra Daddario, a prequel has been developed that will be simply titled Leatherface. Like 2006's prequel/sequel The Beginning, Leatherface will go back to the origins of the chainsaw wielding psychopath with a »

Texas Chainsaw 3D was met with a mostly negative response when it opened early last year, but it did still manage to more than double its $20 million budget. Millennium Films are now going to take another stab at relaunching the franchise, this time with a prequel set before Tobe Hooper’s original 1974 film.
Texas Chainsaw Massacre is rightly considered a horror classic, so how well another movie closely tied to the original will be received by longtime fans remains to be seen.
Plot details are sparse right now, but Leatherface (as it is currently being called) will take place in the 1970s and will serve as an origin story of sorts as we learn more about the iconic killer’s teenage years.
Seth M. Sherwood is writing the Texas Chainsaw prequel, and a director is expected to be announced within the next few weeks. Sherwood has a number of horror »

Writer Seth M Sherwood has signed on for the Texas Chainsaw Massacre prequel.
The up-and-coming Interstate 5 screenwriter will work on Leatherface for Millennium Films, reports The Wrap.
Details of the prequel to the 1974 horror classic remain under wraps.
It is expected to serve as an origin story for the titular masked killer set in the early '70s.
Leatherface will be the eighth film in the Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise. »
