Everyone knows that love is complicated. But what they don’t know is just how complicated love is when your dead girlfriend comes back to life and slowly starts to turn into a zombie. Welcome to Zach’s world.
In the new horror-comedy Life After Beth, Zach (Dane DeHaan) finds himself with a back-from-the-dead girlfriend in Beth (Aubrey Plaza), who seems normal at first, but over time, starts to show off more zombie-like tendencies. EW has an exclusive clip from the film, in which Beth’s deteriorating state causes both anxiety and anger issues. Luckily, Zach is there to calm her with his radio. »

Though Sony has been ambitious with its plans for the expansion of the Spider-Man universe through the current Amazing Spider-Man franchise, the second film in the series wasn’t quite the massive smash the studio might have been hoping for. And admit recent changes to behind-the-scenes teams on the other movies comes word that the third film to focus on the webslinger, originally scheduled for 2016, has been pushed back to 2018.But if you’re wondering what might fill the Spidey void, the villains have your back. The Sinister Six, which Cabin In The Woods’ Drew Goddard is writing and directing, will step in, taking aim with all its dastardly weapons at November 11, 2016. The film will feature the likes of the Rhino (Paul Giamatti) and Dane DeHaan’s Green Goblin, alongside a variety of others plucked from Peter Parker’s rogues’ gallery.As for the third Spidey film, Marc Webb has »
We’ve seen superheroes band together as a powerhouse group in Marvel’s The Avengers and now Sony is forming their own Marvel-based team of comic book characters, but with a villainous slant. Sinister Six, a movie featuring a host of antagonists from The Amazing Spider-Man universe, has been slated for a 2016 release, and Sony has also pushed back the premiere of The Amazing Spider-Man 3 by two years.
THR reports that Sinister Six is now officially set for a November 11th, 2016 release. With The Amazing Spider-Man spinoff securing a calendar spot, Sony swapped the release date of The Amazing Spider-Man 3 from June 10th, 2016 to a date in 2018, likely in June. The delay of the third Amazing Spider-Man film will in turn postpone the original May 4th, 2018 debut date for The Amazing Spider-Man 4, but the new official release date for that entry has yet to be announced.

Sony may not be bringing anything big to this year’s Comic-Con, but they’ve made some huge announcements today. The Amazing Spider-Man 3 was originally scheduled for a 2016 release, but Uncharted (the big screen adaptation of the popular PlayStation video game series) has now taken that movie’s June 10th release date.
However, we Will be revisiting the Spider-Man Cinematic Universe two years from now as Sinister Six is scheduled to open on November 11th, 2016. Written and directed by Drew Goddard (The Cabin in the Woods), that movie focuses on a team of villains who team up to take down Peter Parker.
It’s not clear whether Spider-Man will appear in that movie or who will make up the team’s roster, but Dane DeHaan’s Green Goblin will likely be there, with the likes of Doctor Octopus and Electro joining him.

Originally set to hit theaters on June 10, 2016, Sony has now decided to delay The Amazing Spider-Man 3 two years to 2018, the year The Amazing Spider-Man 4 was previously expected to hit theaters. However, they aren't giving up on the idea of building a world around the web-slinger despite the lackluster returns from The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which had been expected to gross nearly $1 billion worldwide this summer, but has so far only amassed $706 million. Instead of a new Spider-Man film in 2016, the studio is moving forward with The Sinister Six with writer/director Drew Goddard (The Cabin in the Woods), releasing on November 11, 2016. The film features an all-star lineup of Spider-Man villains, all of which were teased in the Spider-Man 2's end credits including Green Goblin, Doctor Octopus, Rhino, Vulture, Kraven the Hunter and Mysterio. No word on which one of those villains may show up, but it seems »

Looks like slightly underwhleming box office returns for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 weren’t enough to kill Sony’s plans to build an expansive superhero universe. The studio has dated The Sinister Six, a movie that features an all-star lineup of Spider-Man villains, for release on November 11th, 2016. As part of the new release date, The Amazing Spider-Man 3 has been bumped from its June 10th, 2016 slot by two years to May 4th, 2018.
Drew Goddard apparently delivered a take on the Sinister Six project that greatly excited execs at Sony. The Cabin in the Woods helmer is set to write and direct the spinoff, which currently has “a rough script.” Sony Pictures Motion Picture Group’s Doug Belgrad said:
“With Sinister Six in the hands of writer-director Drew Goddard, we feel extremely confident placing the film on a prime date in 2016.”
It’s still unknown which villains will feature into »

Twenty years ago, if someone said that ‘zombie romantic comedy’ was going to become an actual cinematic sub-genre, they’d have been called a witch and burned at the stake. And yet, they would have been right, and Fantasia 2014 has seen the unveiling of yet another film in the rapidly expanding genre, Life After Beth. Starring Aubrey Plaza of Parks and Recreation and Dane DeHaan, recently of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Life After Beth is best described as a zombie breakup comedy. It’s also best described as “decent, but not amazing”, a serviceable enough zom-rom-com kept afloat mostly by the supporting cast.
DeHaan stars as Zach, a teenager whose longtime girlfriend, Beth (Plaza), dies and comes back to life several days later. But before Zach’s eyes, as well as Beth’s parents played by John C. Reilly and Molly Shannon, »

Fantasia International Film Festival 2014 runs July 17 to August 6. Follow all of our coverage here. Beth (Aubrey Plaza) is dead, and her boyfriend Zach (Dane DeHaan) is all torn up about it. Sure they were having troubles and it looked like they might be heading for a split, but now that she’s gone — as in gone gone — he’s finding it difficult to think about anything else as he sinks into his pit of despair. Hoping for company with like-minded people he takes to spending time with Beth’s equally distraught parents, but just a few days later they shut him out of their lives. Distraught and driven for similarly bereft companionship he heads to their house only to glimpse something odd through a window. Beth is still alive. Kind of. She’s returned from the dead, and overcome with joyful confusion her parents are hiding her from the world. Beth »

The Weekend Watch is an open thread where you can share what you’ve recently watched, offer suggestions on movies and TV shows we should check out (or warnings about stuff to avoid) and discover queue-filling goodies from other Fsr readers. The comments section awaits. I’ll get the ball rolling with the movies/TV my eyeballs took in this weekend. I’ve been in Montreal for the past several days attending the Fantasia Film Fest so my viewings have been limited mostly to festival titles. My ongoing coverage includes reviews of the latest from Japanese bad boy directors Takashi Miike and Noboru Iguchi, new films starring Samuel L. Jackson and Charlotte Gainsbourg, a Korean drama about a family of spies and probably the best horror comedy you’ll ever see about carnivorous undead beavers. As of this moment I’ve seen six other titles that I have yet to review. Zombie »

There’s something about the whole idea of zombies and people returning from the dead that used to strike fear into horror fans. Films like Night Of The Living Dead, Zombi, and various others were able to make their viewers genuinely affected and frightened. Somewhere in the last half decade or so, there was a shift, replacing that fear with a watered down and somewhat dull angle to a once scary idea. Akin to what happened with vampires via Twilight, zombies just lost their edge, leading into a very safe and very family-friendly territory. Such is the case with Jeff Banea’s Life After Beth, a film that while being capable of a laugh here and there, just further illustrates how far the zombie subgenre has strayed, from being something frightful, into being just another genre watered down to the point of being unrecognizable.

Life After Beth: Movie Pictures GalleryLife »
Next week, one of just two more performances from the late Philip Seymour Hoffman arrives in theaters in Anton Corbijn's quiet, stirring spy thriller A Most Wanted Man. We've already seen the great trailer (I saw the film at Sundance and loved it), but now we get a look behind the scenes, where we get to enjoy what little unseen footage we have of Hoffman still alive and making great movies. Time debuted the featurette, and in it we also learn that Corbijn wanted Hoffman, before he passed away, to have a role in his forthcoming film Life starring Robert Pattinson and Dane DeHaan, but we'll never see it happen now. At least we get to enjoy this fantastic performance from an actor who is missed more everyday. Watch below! Here's the new featurette for Anton Corbijn's A Most Wanted Man, originally from Time: There's an awesome piece »

Nearly six months on, and the death of Philip Seymour Hoffman still stings enormously. In part, it's being reminded of his immense talents in movies like "God's Pocket" and next week's "A Most Wanted Man," which were completed before his passing (both premiered at Sundance in January, mere weeks ahead of the actor's death, and are subsequently hitting theaters). And in part, it's because of knowing that the 46-year-old actor could have had so much good work ahead of him, had he lived. One such project: a potential reteam with "A Most Wanted Man" helmer Anton Corbijn. Time just premiered a new featurette on the John le Carré adaptation, and alongside it, Corbijn revealed that he'd hoped that Hoffman would have taken a small role in the director's subsequent project "Life." The film, which he began filming only a few months after "A Most Wanted Man" premiered, stars Robert Pattinson as photographer Dennis Stock, »

The most honest conversations at a movie premiere often happen in the bathroom, which was the case for Woody Allen’s “Magic in the Moonlight.” At the after-party on the Upper East Side on Thursday night, two industry types started to gab at the urinals. The first man asked the second man what he thought. “It was, uh, interesting,” the second man said. The first man liked the music. The second man complimented the cinematography. Then both men started to pick apart the story about a 1920s magician (Colin Firth) who tries to expose a clairvoyant (Emma Stone) as a fraud. “It was slow,” the second man said.
There were other pacing problems at the premiere of the Sony Pictures Classics release. The movie started a half-hour late, and print journalists were crammed into the narrow lobby of the Paris Theatre. Before the talent arrived, Yahoo anchor Katie Couric, who isn’t in the film, »

Anyone who has watched NBC’s Parks and Recreation over the years can attest to the fact that Aubrey Plaza is very, very funny (even if her “break-out” film The To-Do List was not). And in Safety Not Guaranteed, she proved that her range extends far beyond quirky deadpan humor. Now, in this summer’s Life After Beth, she’s taking the bold move of both pushing into the horror genre and seizing what could be her most dramatic role to date. Plaza alone has put this one on our watchlist, but that she’s working alongside actors like Dane DeHaan, John C. Reilly, Anna Kendrick and Molly Shannon is some pretty major icing on the cake.
A new clip from Life After Beth has hit the web today, centering on Beth’s boyfriend (DeHaan) as he attempts to make sense of finding her inexplicably alive after being told by »

The zombie genre has long been one where filmmakers—who attempt at least do something more than have a bunch of undead people lurching around—try to insert political and social context within the brains being eaten. And while there are plenty of places you can still find that, lately some directors have been trying to freshen things up a bit. Jonathan Levine fused romance and zombies with "Warm Bodies" a couple years back, and now comes "Life After Beth," where the heart yearns for the undead. Aubrey Plaza, Dane DeHaan, John C. Reilly, Anna Kendrick and more star in this one about a young man whose girlfriend tragically dies....or does she? Things change when she mysteriously returns, and as you'll see in this new clip, it's something that needs to be kept secret until everyone involved can figure out what to do. The film premiered earlier this year »

The first clip has arrived online for Life After Beth, in which Dane DeHaan realises that his recently-deceased girlfriend (Aubrey Plaza) isn’t so deceased after all… Well, technically she did die, but now she’s back, having miraculously cheated the grave. However, it isn’t long before she starts to realise she has a newfound craving for human flesh… This first clip shows DeHaan’s character first discovering what has happened, much to the chagrin of Beth’s frantic parents. Take a look at the new clip, below… Judging...
