Life After Beth trailer

Plenty of zombie movies deal with the heartbreaking difficulty of having to kill a zombie with a familiar face. Not many deal with the pitfalls of trying to date one. Jeff Baena‘s Sundance comedy Life After Beth is one of the select few.

Dane DeHaan plays Zach, who’s mourning the sudden death of his girlfriend Beth (Aubrey Plaza). When she comes back as a zombie, he’s delighted to get a second chance at their relationship — even if it means putting up with her rotting flesh and newfound appetite for humans. Anna Kendrick, John C. Reilly, Molly Shannon, and Cheryl Hines¬†also star. Watch the first Life After Beth trailer after the jump.

Last week we posted the first trailer from the Live-action/CG hybrid Yogi Bear movie, today we bring you a first look at another television cartoon to live-action film adaptation.  Nickelodeon is apparently making a live-action movie adaptation of the popular television cartoon series The Fairly OddParents. The movie titled A Fairly Odd Movie: Grow up Timmy Turner stars Jason Alexander and Cheryl Hines. After the jump you can see a first look at Alexander and Hines in make-up (complete with colored wacky hairdo) for the production.

Space Chimps Movie Poster

spacechimps1-2.jpg

Kid’s movie posters that command you to do something are next levs. Still, there’s not a chance in hell that Space Monkeys will reign supreme over 1987′s Project X as the top monkeys-in-flight-afternoon-delight movie of our times. Even with voice talent including Cheryl Hines, Jane Lynch, Kenan Thompson (did he start taking funnay pills?), Andy Samberg, and Stanley Tucci. Not happenin’.

This is not as funny as it could be, but a trivial animal cruelty controversy is brewing over Space Chimps on IMDB, if you want to squeeze one out or feign outrage.

Waitress

Waitress is a movie you would like a lot, but you have no desire to see. The film first premiered at Sundance and was a huge hit. Fox Searchlight bought it (hint: they buy the good films – Napoleon Dynamite, Garden State and a small film called Little Miss Sunshine), and they’ve been holding tons of sneak preview screenings throughout the country. And guess what? People love it. I have yet to find one person who didn’t. Surprisingly, even guy-guys love it. Still not sold? Check out some of the video clips after the jump.

Waitress Production Photos

Waitress

Andy Griffith (old Joe) tells Keri Russell her horoscope for the day.

Fox Searchlight seems to have the Sundance purchase down. Last year they bought Little Miss Sunshine. Two years earlier, the studio picked up Garden State and Napoleon Dynamite. This year the studio went crazy and made four purchases: The Savages, Joshua, Once and Waitress. Unfortunately I’ve only seen one of the four films (Joshua, which has good horror/thriller appeal). We waited in line for two hours to see Waitress (that was the film will all the buzz) and we still didn’t get in. But everyone totally dug this flick (it currently has an 8.2 imdb rating), so I’m pretty sure this will be Searchlight’s Sundance 2007 breakout film. So while you might not think you want to see this movie yet, chances are you will. Be an early adopter, here is your chance.

Anyway, we’ve previously posted the theatrical trailer, and now comes a set of nine production photos. As always, left click for a better view.

Waitress Movie Trailer

Waitress

At the 2007 Sundance Film Festival, I watched over 30 movies. However fate kept me from seeing Adrienne Shelly’s Waitress, but not without trying. It was one of the most talked about films at the festival. Fox Searchlight quickly acquired it for around $5 million.
