The latest film from Joe Dante, Burying The Ex is rather flatly lit and somewhat lacking in stylistic verve, but there is a pretty solid screenplay at the core of it all. At least this second trailer doesn’t go plot point by plot point, like the first one.
Max (Anton Yelchin) is a nice guy. Evelyn (Ashley Greene) is his overbearing but incredibly beautiful girlfriend. Max knows it’s time to call it quits, but there’s just one problem: he’s terrified of breaking up with her. Fate steps in when Evelyn is involved in a freak accident and dies. Evelyn returns in zombie form and is determined to take her boyfriend back from her nicer, cuter, possible soul-mate replacement, Olivia (Alexandra Daddario).
Burying The Ex comes to VOD June 19th, with an accompanying limited theatrical release.
