Joe Dante on

Burying the Ex

Released 2015
Distributor Image Entertainment

Joe Dante’s latest film is a self-described “zom-com” starring Anton Yelchin as the unluckiest lucky guy on the planet; he has two beautiful women in love with him but, and here’s the (literally) sticky part, one of them is dead. Alexandra Daddario plays Yelchin’s effervescent new girlfriend and Ashley Greene is the gorgeous undead ex who refuses to die.
