LIfe After Beth

We’ve seen myriad interpretations of the zombie movie, we’ve seen numerous versions of the romantic comedy too, but “Life After Beth,” the new indie flick that premiered at Sundance earlier this year, joins "Warm Bodies" in the category of zombie romcom, a distinction that only a few movies in the zombie genre have achieved.

Written and directed by Jeff Baena, the movie stars Aubrey Plaza, Dane DeHaan, Anna Kendrick, Matthew Gray Gubler, John C. Reilly, Molly Shannon, Cheryl Hines, and Paul ReiserOur review says the movie features "a go-for-broke performance from Aubrey Plaza, and a funny supporting turn by scene stealer Matthew Gray Gubler," Also going for it is a killer soundtrack featuring songs by Can, Brian Jonestown Massacre, Neu! and an awesome molten lava droney/feedback-y score by the dudes from Black Rebel Motorcycle Club.

A24 films will release the movie on August 15th in select theaters. Watch the new trailer below via MTV and check out some recently released posters too.
