Trailer for Joe Dante’s Horror/Comedy BURYING THE EX with Anton Yelchin
Joe Dante, the director who brought us films such as Gremlins and The Burbs, has a new film coming out called Burying the Ex. It’s a horror comedy that follows Max (Anton Yeltsin), who ends up being involved with a girlfriend from hell named Evelyn (Ashely Greene). Before he breaks up with her she dies, but that’s not the end of it. She comes back from the dead as a zombie, and she won’t let him move on.
I would really like this to be a good movie, especially with Dante at the helm and Yelchin starring. I’m fan of both of them, but it doesn’t look anywhere near as good as some of their previous work, which is a shame.
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.
The movie is set to be released sometime this summer. There’s no exact date set, though.
