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 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: he’s too afraid to break up with her. Fate steps in when Evelyn is involved in a freak accident and dies, leaving Max single and ready to mingle. Several weeks later, he has a chance encounter with Olivia (Alexandra Daddario), a cute and spirited girl who just might be his soul mate. But that same night, Evelyn returns from the grave as a dirt-smeared Zombie and she’s determined to live happily ever after with Max …even if that means turning him into one of the undead.
