New Clip From Burying The Ex

Getting its premiere out of competition at this year's Venice Film Festival is Joe Dante's Burying The Ex. The zombie rom-com - fast becoming its own sub-subgenre - stars Anton Yelchin, Ashley Greene and Alexandra Daddario, and to herald its undead arrival, a quick clip has just lurched online. It finds Greene suffering a spot of neck trouble.

In one of those unfortunate occasional clashes of content Burying The Ex, on paper at least, has exactly the same premise as Life After Beth, which will beat it to release. It involves Greene being killed in a freak accident, but returning from the dead and expecting to carry on her relationship with Yelchin as if nothing is askew. The trouble is, he's already romantically moved on with Daddario.

Jeff Baena's Life After Beth has an almost identical love triangle with an undead Aubrey Plaza and a still-living Dane DeHaan and Anna Kendrick. But Burying The Ex, lest we forget, has Joe Dante (Gremlins 1 and 2, The Howling, The Hole) going for it, so should confidently pull some of its own surprises.

Life After Beth is out in the UK on October 3. Burying The Ex doesn't have any international release dates yet, outside its debut in Venice tonight.
