Joe Dante, known for his deft helming in unforgettable entertaining movies such as “Gremlins” “Looney Tunes: Back in Action” and in television series “Twilight Zone” and “Masters of Horror,” directs Anton Yelchin, Ashley Greene and Alexandra Daddario in “Burying The Ex” about a man trying to call it quits with his ex while trying to go for his dream girl. Yelchin plays nice guy Max who recently moved in with his beautiful girlfriend, Evelyn (Greene). But when Evelyn turns out to be a controlling, manipulative nightmare, Max then decides to call it quits.
“Burying the Dead” was recently featured in this year’s Riviera Maya Film Festival where novelty ideas are utilized to present films in the broader international community. Presenting at the festival are Joe Dante and Anton Yelchin wherein Dante reiterated that the movie is the kind of film with an audience in contrast to critics ready to jot down observations and analysis.
Sure, it’s not Citizen Kane and it’s not meant to be. It reminded me of the movies I used to see in the valley in the 1970s, rocking a pair of orange Dittos, a satin and terry cloth halter top, with my shag cut. Escaping the summer heat with a big bag of popcorn to watch something that silly was the stuff of a young cinema lover’s dream. Dante’s thumbprint exuberance is alive and well, so are the gross-outs here and there. Burying the Ex is sure to develop a cult following and become a favorite midnight movie.”
Some relationships just won’t die! “Burying The Ex” opens June 24 in cinemas from Pioneer Films.
