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, »

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 »

Director: Joe Dante
Running Time: 89 minutes
Synopsis: Max (Yelchin) and Evelyn (Greene) have the perfect relationship until they move in together. Once cohabiting, Max realises that Evelyn is far more high maintenance than he thought. Before he can break up wit her though, she is tragically killed. Weeks later, as Max is starting to move on with new flame Olivia (Daddario), Evelyn is resurrected and wants her man back for good.
Joe Dante has had an impressive career. The man behind the camera on classics such as Innerspace and Gremlins, Dante has been quiet for the last few years. His last film venture was the fantastic children’s horror The Hole which was scary enough to give grown-ups nightmares. Now comes Burying the Ex a black romantic comedy featuring that ever popular monster, the zombie.
Joe Dante has always had great flair for comedy, »

Adam Nimoy, son of the late Leonard Nimoy, has opened a Kickstarter for his documentary, For the Love of Spock. Also in this round-up: details on the L.A. screening of Joe Dante's Burying the Ex, as well as the official trailer for Extinction.
For the Love of Spock: From Adam Nimoy: "Last year, just before Thanksgiving, I approached my dad, Leonard Nimoy, about the possibility of working together on a film about Mr. Spock. I had skimmed through some of the books on the making of Star Trek and felt there was so much more to explore about the birth and evolution of Spock. And the timing seemed right, as the 50th anniversary of Star Trek: The Original Series was not that far away. Dad agreed that now was the right time, and that he was 100% committed to collaborating with me on this project. He also reminded »

"You died! I saw you die..." Gross. It has been some time since we've seen a new Joe Dante film (The Hole in 2009), but alas this new one doesn't look like it's anything worth rushing out to see. Rlje/Image Entertainment has debuted a trailer for Burying the Ex, the latest horror comedy from Joe Dante that premiered at the Venice Film Festival last year. Anton Yelchin stars as the man of interest, who loses one girlfriend in a bus accident, finds another, then encounters his old dead girlfriend back-from-the-dead to torment him. Ashley Greene & Alexandra Daddario co-star with Oliver Cooper. It's a concept we've seen a few times recently, so it's not that original, but there are a few eerily disgusting moments. Have fun! Here's the new official trailer for Joe Dante's Burying the Ex, in high def from Apple: It seemed like a great idea when Max, »

In an unsurprising move, a sequel to 2012.s Project X has been ordered because of the fact that the original made a ton of money off a nothing budget. But rather than breaking the mold with the title for the follow-up, those involved simply decided to name it Project Xx. Which, while pretty obvious, suggests that the raunchy comedy will pick-up right where the original left off. The Wrap were the first to report that the Todd Phillips-produced sequel is currently in pre-production. At the moment though we.re still not sure if either the film.s trifecta of stars (Thomas Mann, Oliver Cooper, and Jonathan Daniel Brown), its director Nima Nourizadeh, or its writing team of Matt Drake and Michael Bacall will return. However, the last details we had on the sequel suggested that Bacall had been asked to write a draft of the script. Project Xx has »
Justin Timberlake on the Oscars' Red Carpet Justin Timberlake at the Academy Awards The Social Network actor Justin Timberlake arrives at the 83rd Academy Awards, which took place on Sunday, Feb. 27, at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. At the ceremony, Timberlake and Black Swan actress Mila Kunis introduced the nominees – and eventual winners – in the animation categories. Throughout the proceedings, he pretended to be the elusive Banksy, whose Exit Through the Gift Shop was a Best Documentary Feature contender. The joke fell mostly flat, but Timberlake actually elicited some laughs when he imitated three-time Oscar-nominated veteran Kirk Douglas*, who mercilessly stretched the Best Supporting Actress announcement into what seemed like hours. Admittedly, Douglas was funny. (The winner in that particular category turned out to be Melissa Leo for David O. Russell's The Fighter.) As announced by the Justin Timberlake-Mila Kunis duo, the Best Animated Short Film was Shaun Tan »

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 »
