fb share tweet share

Living with a girlfriend or boyfriend, husband or wife, can be difficult and trying during the best of times. Being around someone that much, with nowhere to go, can weigh heavily on you and make you wonder if you made the right choice. Any doubts you have are compounded even further if your partner turns into a zombie. And that is exactly what happens in the new undead romantic comedy Burying the Ex. While that may sound like a questionable endeavor, throw in a fantastic cast and Joe “I-Freakin’-Made-Gremlins” Dante at the helm, and you’ve got our attention. Check out this new clip and handful of images and see for yourself.

Burying the Ex is the story of Max (Anton Yelchin, Star Trek), who is, by all accounts, generally a nice guy. Problems arise when he moves in with his super hot, but totally overbearing girlfriend Evelyn (Ashley Greene, Twilight), and their relationship tanks, and hard, as she becomes super manipulative and pushy. Max knows he needs to end it, but he’s also a total chickens hit with no spine, so he doesn’t. Fate intervenes when Evelyn dies in a freak accident (bullet dodged, am I right? Death is way better than having to confront someone) and Max is free to do as he pleases, including get with potential soul mate Olivia (Alexandra Daddario, True Detective). But wait, Evelyn comes back from the dead and still wants to cohabitate with Max, much to his chagrin.

Godzilla 2000 Almost Got A Joe Dante-Directed Sequel

godzilla 2000“If you can’t take the heat…run.”

That’s the goofy trailer tagline for the American release of Takao Okawara’s Godzilla 2000, the film that many people used to wipe the dirty taste of Roland Emmerich’s 1998 Godzilla entry out of their mouths. The U.S. stayed away from producing its own Godzilla movie until Gareth Edwards’ recent reboot, but for the briefest of Hollywood minutes, there existed a potential sequel to Godzilla 2000 called Godzilla Reborn. This would have been produced by screenwriter Michael Schlesinger and RoboCop‘s Jon Davison, with Gremlins director Joe Dante behind the camera. Are you kidding me?

Innerspace Gets Trailers From Hell Treatment From Max Landis

I’m not going to lie to you guys. It has been many a year since I sat through the 1987 sci-fi adventure/comedy Innerspace, and while I didn’t think the movie was amazing or anything when I saw it as a kid, it made me laugh and gave me a lot to consider as far as science went. I probably had some terrible dreams accompanying the viewing. And anyway, that was years before I realized the entire idea was seemingly ripped off of Richard Fleischer’s superior 1966 film Fantastic Voyage. But I still haven’t forgotten about the movie, and I can only assume it isn’t because a tiny Dennis Quaid is inside me, fighting to keep the memory alive.
