Ahead of its digital release this June, a new trailer has arrived online for director Joe Dante’s upcoming comedy-horror Burying the Ex, which stars Anton Yelchin, Ashley Greene and Alexandra Daddario. Take a look after the official synopsis…
Burying the Ex 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 knows it’s time to call it quits, but there’s just one problem: he’s terrified of breaking up with her. Fate steps in when Evelyn is involved in a freak accident and dies, leaving Max single and ready to mingle. Max eventually meets Olivia (Daddario), a cute and spirited girl who just might be his soul mate, only to learn that Evelyn has risen from her grave »

Joe Dante has to be one of our favourite underrated directors. The man brought Gremlins to the big screen as well as its sequel Gremlins 2: The New Batch, a film I watched far too much as a young child. He’s also responsible for The Howling, The ‘Burbs, Innerspace and the cult television classic Eerie Indiana.
His last big screen outing was the ridiculously creepy kids film The Hole. Don’t confuse it with the Thora Birch, Keira Knightley teen thriller, Dante’s film saw a trio of kids unearth a mysterious hole in their new house. The hole had the ability to read people’s darkest fears and has some truly terrifying scenes. Seriously I don’t know how kids made it through that film!
Now just over five years later Dante is back with a deliciously dark romantic zombie comedy. The film stars Anton Yelchin as Max, »

Hardly an exhilarating MPAA ratings bulletin today as it does include Joe Dante's Burying the Ex starring Anton Yelchin, Ashley Greene and Alexandra Daddario and Jon Watts' Cop Car starring Kevin Bacon and Shea Whigham, but I'm having a hard time getting too excited for either of those. We also have Strangerland starring Nicole Kidman, Joseph Fiennes and Hugo Weaving, which played the Sundance Film Festival and received some high marks and was picked up by Alchemy for release later this year. There is good word buzzing about Roy Andersson's A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence and the response to Bill Condon's Mr. Holmes, featuring Ian McKellen as an aging Sherlock Holmes, seems to be pleasant enough, but there isn't much here to get the blood moving. The complete bulletin is listed below. Burying the Ex Rated R For sexual content, partial nudity, »

It's Flashback Friday time! Kellan Lutz and Ashley Greene gave fans an unexpected treat Thursday when they bumped into each other at the Lakers game. The spur-of-the-moment reunion was everything Twilight fans needed, knowing that Robert Pattinson is officially off the market. "Reunited with Kel at the Lakers game #lovethisone #family," Greene captioned her pic on Instagram. It's the little things in life that keep us Twihards going, and seeing Greene and Lutz maintain their friendship just makes our hearts pound! We can only hope the whole gang comes back together at some point for an awesome photo opp, but now that Nikki Reed and R.Pattz are both set to tie the knot, it seems unlikely that »
A triumphant return for a beloved master or a sleepy reworking of now overly familiar tropes in a zombie movement that just won't die? Joe Dante's Burying The Ex is neither, really, the horror comedy showing plenty to say that the director of Gremlins and The Howling still has plenty left in the tank while also being undercut by a script too willing to go for the obvious gag without doing the sort of heavy lifting that would get an audience to really buy in in the first place.Anton Yelchin is Max, a meek horror shop clerk - think costumes, fake blood, etc - completely overpowered by his Ultra-a Type Personality girlfriend Evelyn (Ashley Greene). He's changed his diet for her. He's changed his transport...

At least he didn’t deal with her the Ash Williams way.
Dante is a fine director, but word from Venice was that Alan Trezza’s script was fraught with issues, including a lot of ‘nagging girlfriend’ cliches that were more embarrassing than funny. The metaphor of an undead relationship is a good one, but it won’t fly if the representations are cheap, tacky or offensive.
There’s also the small matter of Life After Beth coming along recently and taking a very similar take on the whole zomantic comedy thing.
Still, I’m hoping that there’s a lot of fun to be had here. »

A new film by Joe Dante's always worth looking forward to. The mischievous mind behind such films as Gremlins, Piranha, The Howling and (my personal favourite), Innerspace, his films are typically laced with anarchic humour, touches of gore and affectionate references to other, classic movies.
We first learned of his latest film, Burying The Ex, in December 2013, when he began a crowdfunding campaign for $200,000 to get his horror comedy finished.
Starring Star Trek's Anton Yelchin, Burying The Ex is about a young man whose ex-girlfriend (played by Ashley Greene) returns from the grave as a zombie. That premise will inevitably draw comparisons to the thematically-similar Life After Beth, but we're hoping Dante's presence will give it a look and feel all its own. The first trailer isn't short of the director's movie-referencing humour, »
It was announced last week that Image would be releasing the new horror comedy Burying the Ex this summer. The film brings acclaimed director Joe Dante back to the big screen for the first time since the 2012 release The Hole. It stars Anton Yelchin and Ashley Greene as a couple whose relationship begins to fall apart, quite literally and in unexpected ways.

Director Joe Dante has been a steady presence in film and television over the years, whether as the director of The ‘Burbs or several episodes of Hawaii Five-o. Dante, however, is perhaps best known for helming the 1984 feature Gremlins, and its 1990 follow-up Gremlins 2: The New Batch. With his last feature coming in 2009, many were excited to hear that Dante would be returning behind the camera for a new feature, this one falling into the horror-comedy genre once again.
Titled Burying the Ex, the film’s synopsis is as follows.
A guy’s regrets over moving in with his girlfriend are compounded when she dies and comes back as a zombie.
Dante directs from a script by Alan Trezza, who makes his feature film writing debut by adapting his own 2008 short story. The film stars Anton Yelchin as the male lead, with Ashley Greene as the titular Ex, alongside Alexandra Daddario. »

I'm a huge fan of Joe Dante. With movies like The Howling, Gremlins, and Gremlins 2 (and The 'Burbs let's not forget that either) the man has earned a lifetime reserve of interest from me when it comes to his work. His newest film is called Burying the Ex and I will be among the first with a ticket (or VOD receipt) when it hits this summer. This international trailer is sort of low resolution, but it certainly looks gooey enough! Check out the Burying the Ex trailer below. The film stars Anton Yelchin, Ashley Greene, Alexandra Daddario and Oliver Cooper. Image Entertainment will release it on June 19th. Here's the official synopsis for Burying the Ex: Burying The Ex follows Max (Anton Yelchin), an all-around nice guy, and his overbearing but incredibly beautiful girlfriend, Evelyn (Ashely Greene). Their relationship takes a nosedive after they decide to move in »

Last year I had the displeasure of watching Life After Beth, a comedy about a guy (Dane DeHaan) whose girlfriend (Aubrey Plaza) that dies and comes back to life as a zombie. I supremely disliked it to the point I could hardly bear another second and ultimately hit fast forward to what was, admittedly, a very funny ending scene. This year it seems director Joe Dante (Gremlins) is exploring similar territory with Burying the Ex with stars Anton Yelchin (Star Trek) and Ashley Greene (Twilight), Here's the plot: It seemed like a great idea when Max, an all-around nice guy (Yelchin), and Evelyn, his beautiful girlfriend (Greene), moved in together. When Evelyn turns out to be a controlling, manipulative nightmare, Max knows it's time to call it quits, but there's just one problem: he's terrified of breaking up with her. Fate steps in when Evelyn is involved in a freak accident and dies, »

"There's a freaky Tim Burton movie in your living room." If the indie horror comedy Life After Beth didn't deliver the right kind of zombie romantic comedy you were hoping for, maybe Burying the Ex from Gremlins director Joe Dante is more your speed. Anton Yelchin stars in the story of a young man who thinks he's met the perfect girl in Evelyn (Ashley Greene), but then becomes a nightmare to deal with at home. But it doesn't seem to be a problem anymore when she dies, leaving him to fall in love with another girl (Alexandra Daddario). But that's when Evelyn comes back from the dead to complicate things in the worst way, and the first international trailer shows off the messy results of that story unfolding. Watch? Here's the first trailer for Joe Dante's Burying the Ex from Voltage Pictures: Burying the Ex is directed by Joe Dante (Gremlins, »

Filmmaker Joe Dante is responsible for some of the finest B-movie outings to emerge in the late 70s and early 80s. Pirahna, The Howling and Gremlins now exist as generous reminders of an era where monsters were rendered painstakingly with animatronics and puppetry. More recently, Dante’s devout approach saw him tackle kiddie-centric thriller The Hole, which is in this writer’s opinion vastly underrated. While he’s taken a breather from features to focus on TV (Splatter, Witches Of East End and Hawaii Five-o), the horror helmer returns to his origin genre for Burying The Ex.
In development for some time, the zombie rom-com was partially financed through crowdfunding, and the rest was secured (as Dante himself told The Playlist) by the appeal of its attractive leads. Following its worldwide premiere at the Venice Film Festival last year, word on the film’s distribution fell eerily silent. Apart from »

Joe Dante has a filmography that stands on it's own as one of the best of the 1980s. He helmed The Howling, Gremlins, Innerspace, Explorers, The 'Burbs, and more. But, since 1998's Small Soldiers, Dante has only directed one theatrical release, the bomb Looney Tunes: Back In Action. Now, his latest film Burying The Ex is getting a release and we have the first trailer. While Burying The Ex has a pretty good cast in Anton Yelchin, Ashley Greene, and Alexandra Daddario, this does not look like »
