Burying the Ex comes from the wacky mind of Joe Dante, known for films like Gremlins (and its sequel) and Small Soldiers. His latest effort once again marries horror with comedy in what appears to be a fun examination of the ways our past relationships hang over us as we pursue new ones. The first trailer has landed online, complete with zombie ex-girlfriends, green vomit and Anton Yelchin’s facial hair.

'Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters' Review

by James Rocchi August 6, 2013 @ 6:00 PM
When 'Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief' came out in 2010, it looked suspiciously as if the would-be franchise, based on Rick Riordan's best-selling teen adventure books, was going to get 'Golden Compass'-ed -- stopped after one installment and left to languish. But the first adventures of title hero Percy Jackson (Logan Lerman) -- born to a mortal mother and the Greek God Poseidon made $226 million worldwide, never mind home video.
So, we get a second helping of Percy's adventures, which mix the home-away-from-home setting and grow-up-fast themes of 'Harry Potter' with some all-American gumption and a little Greek dressing on the side. With a new writer and director -- and what seems like a budget spent more on computer effects than human actors -- 'Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters' is exactly the kind of film that was made for me to take my teen and tween nieces to, not for me to enjoy. There's some bloodless peril, not even a whiff of romance and plenty of spirited action.

Though 'Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief' did not reach the lofty heights of the 'Harry Potter' series in terms of box office or cultural impact (which it surely strived for), it still made a decent $220 million worldwide, with another $37 million in DVD/Blu-ray sales. Hence, it's sequel time, and the first look at the film 'Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters' has come in the form of five new photos.

Alexandra Daddario Interview: The 'Texas Chainsaw' Star Talks Running Scared

by Mike Sampson January 4, 2013 @ 8:28 AM
Forget all the other 'Texas Chainsaw Massacre' sequels and reboots you may have seen. 'Texas Chainsaw 3D' ignores all of those and considers itself a direct sequel to the 1974 classic. The film stars Alexandra Daddario in a role that isn't just teenage scream queen. We talk to the actress (who you might recognize from TV's 'Parenthood') about the challenges of running and crying and screaming all day as well as her choice to study the Michael Bay remake.
