From the director of Gremlins, Ex stars Anton Yelchin as Max, a nice guy/horror buff whose relationship with Evelyn (Twilight‘s Ashley Greene) nosedives after they move in together. Max plans a breakup date, but it never happens as Evelyn is fatally hit by a bus. When Max meets Olivia (True Detective‘s Alexandra Daddario), she just might be his soulmate — but there’s a hitch: Evelyn has just clawed her way out of the grave and intends to “live” with Max forever.
The comedy drew a warm reception in Venice, where screenwriter Alan Trezza said he had been interested by the idea of the zombie genre “as a metaphor for a relationship that’s gone sour.” A love letter to Los Angeles and some of the town’s filmic history, the movie was entirely shot in L.A. Image is doing a limited theatrical and VOD release on June 19.
