New Trailer For Joe Dante's Horror Comedy BURYING THE EX
Burying the Ex is a horror comedy that comes from director Joe Dante, the man who gave us classic films such as Gremlins and The Burbs. It’s been a long time since I’ve seen a movie from Dante that I’ve really enjoyed. The last film he made was called The Hole, and it was released back in 2009. Unfortunately, Burying the Ex doesn’t look like it’s going to be anything special.
The story centers on a character named Max who is played by Anton Yelchin. He ends up being involved with a girlfriend from hell named Evelyn played by Ashley Greene. He just wants to break up with her, but before he does, she dies. That seemed like an easy way out for him until she comes back from the dead as a zombie, and she won’t let him move on.
BURYING THE EX follows Max (Anton Yelchin), an all-around nice guy, and his overbearing but incredibly beautiful girlfriend, Evelyn (Ashley 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.
The movie is set to be released this summer on June 19th.
