Everyone knows that love is complicated. But what they don’t know is just how complicated love is when your dead girlfriend comes back to life and slowly starts to turn into a zombie. Welcome to Zach’s world.

In the new horror-comedy Life After Beth, Zach (Dane DeHaan) finds himself with a back-from-the-dead girlfriend in Beth (Aubrey Plaza), who seems normal at first, but over time, starts to show off more zombie-like tendencies. EW has an exclusive clip from the film, in which Beth’s deteriorating state causes both anxiety and anger issues. Luckily, Zach is there to calm her with his radio. Turns out smooth jazz is just the thing to relax a zombie. Who knew?

Life After Beth is currently available on DirecTV and will be in limited theaters August 15th.

Ahh, to be a teenage zombie again!

Jeff Baena’s Life After Beth follows Zach (Dane DeHaan), a teen who is heartbroken when his girlfriend (Aubrey Plaza) unexpectedly dies. When her parents, Maury (John C. Reilly) and Geenie (Molly Shannon), resurrect Beth using the Old Testament, Zach gets a second chance to do and say everything he wished he had while she was still alive. As you can imagine, things don’t work out quite the way he plans.

The film’s trailer shows the pair running around the park, hanging out at the beach, and making out, extensively. Beth is a far cry from the rapid, ferocious zombies in 28 Days Later and the slow-paced, completely lifeless zombies of The Walking Dead; she’s much more human-like than zombie-esque, at least at first.

'Devil's Knot': Dane DeHaan looks guilty in West Memphis 3 film -- EXCLUSIVE

Devils-Knot-clip.jpg

The true story of the West Memphis Three has been told many times in many different forms, notably the trio of documentaries from filmmakers Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky, who helped shed light on the miscarriage of justice that convicted three Arkansas teenagers for the ritual killing of three young boys in 1993.

On May 9, the haunting tale comes to theaters and digital home video with Devil’s Knot, Atom Egoyan’s star-studded feature with Reese Witherspoon as the mother of one of the murdered boys and Colin Firth as the investigator who senses that the truth had been lost in the town’s rush to judgement. Three troubled teenagers were convicted of committing the murders as part of a Satanic ritual that the prosecution and the media used to whip-up paranoia and speculation.

One of Hollywood’s biggest young stars, Dane DeHaan, who stars in the upcoming Spider-Man sequel, plays the minor role of Chris Morgan. While the police quickly targeted the three major suspects — Damien Echols, Jessie Misskelley Jr., and Jason Baldwin — Morgan was briefly questioned since he knew the victims, had a history of substance abuse, and had suspiciously left the state shortly after the crime.

In the exclusive clip below, Morgan takes a polygraph test to clear his name. READ FULL STORY

Going Green Goblin: How Dane DeHaan got into character for 'Amazing Spider-Man 2'

As we inch closer to the May 2 release of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, we’re learning more about the bad guys Spider-Man will face—like Dane DeHaan’s Harry Osborn, a.k.a. Green Goblin. Harry and Peter Parker were childhood friends before Harry left for boarding school. Harry returns to New York to discover that his father, Oscrop’s Norman Osborn, is terminally ill and his son is about to inherit more than just the family business. “It’s a complicated storyline,” DeHaan tells EW. “But to boil it down: This is the origin story for Harry Osborn becoming Green Goblin.”

Making the physical transformation from Harry to Green Goblin wasn’t easy, but the process did help the actor get into the right mindset: “When you look at yourself in the mirror and you’re in the suit and full-on Goblin makeup? You feel like a badass,” says DeHaan. “I look at myself and think, ‘Hell, yeah, I’m the Green Goblin! Let’s go do this.’”

'Amazing Spider-Man 2': Witness the new Green Goblin -- EXCLUSIVE IMAGE!

For a long time, the word on The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was that it would pit Andrew Garfield’s Peter Parker against Jamie Foxx’s Electro. But over the last few months, Sony has carefully shown its hand, revealing that Electro’s not the only bad guy tormenting the wondrous wall-crawler. In fact, as EW’s Sara Vilkomerson reveals in this week’s cover storyAmazing 2 was conceived as the franchise’s expansion point, bringing in a whole host of characters and world-buildy concepts with an eye toward future films. And surely no character will resonate more with anyone aware of Spidey history than Harry Osborn — who, as played by Dane DeHaan, will become Spider Enemy Number One, the nefarious Green Goblin.

Now, EW is excited to share with you the first close-up picture of Amazing‘s Green Goblin, which takes the character in a decidedly different aesthetic direction than the original trilogy. For one thing, this Goblin doesn’t just wear green. That’s his skin, breaking out in what looks like the nastiest case of Goblin-itis this side of Middle-Earth.

'Kill Your Darlings' director discusses the nude scenes he cut out... and the one he put back on Blu-ray -- EXCLUSIVE

kill-your-darlings.jpg

For Kill Your Darlings, first-time director John Krokidas finagled a spectacular Young Hollywood cast to echo the gathering of Allen Ginsberg and other young Beat poets at Columbia University before they became famous. Daniel Radcliffe, Dane DeHaan, Ben Foster, Boardwalk Empire‘s Jack Huston, and Elizabeth Olsen play the coterie of ambitious free thinkers whose mission to rewrite the rules of literature is dramatically impacted by a real-life murder in 1944.

For the lead role of Ginsberg, Krokidas turned to Radcliffe, who won over the young director by insisting on auditioning even though the Harry Potter star could probably have had the role with just a nod. “We did a couple of scenes from the script and a couple of improvs, and it was just one of those moments where I saw all of these colors come out of him that I hadn’t seen previously in his work [as] the one character that we’d known him for,” says Krokidas. “I just saw the character that I had been writing for so many years come to life in front of me.”

DeHaan plays Lucien Carr, the magnetic but troubled ringleader of the group who catches Ginsberg’s eye — as well as the obsessive devotion of a former mentor, David Kammerer (Michael C. Hall).

The film debuted at last year’s Sundance Film Festival, attracting headlines and causing some clutched pearls as “Harry Potter” portrayed a famous gay man experiencing his intellectual and sexual awakening. Just imagine if Krokidas had kept in the nude scenes that left absolutely nothing to the imagination!

Below, in addition to a deleted scene from the Blu-ray release (out March 18), the young director discusses why DeHaan was the perfect Lucien Carr, which cast member became his unofficial therapist, and why he cut out several instances of male frontal nudity — and which racy scene can be seen on the Blu-ray.

Robert Pattinson and Dane DeHaan in 'Life': First Look -- EXCLUSIVE PHOTO

It’s 1955 and Life magazine photographer Dennis Stock has convinced a young James Dean to take a road trip from Los Angeles to New York to Dean’s hometown of Fairmont, Indiana, so Stock can photograph Dean in the environments that “affected and shaped the unique character” of Dean, the photographer said in an interview describing their adventure.

However, that fateful trip, where Stock shot Dean’s famous Times Square photo, is the subject of a new film directed by Dutch director Anton Corbijn. Starring Dane DeHaan as Dean and Robert Pattinson as Stock, the film, called Life, is currently shooting in freezing Ontario, Canada, which is doubling for Indiana.

In the shot, the two young actors are heading from the train station to Dean’s childhood home. Corbijn is happy with the film’s progress thus far. When we spoke to the director he had been shooting for eight days and was already pleased with the connections formed between the two men.

More importantly, they’ve each sparked to their disparate roles.

“Rob has an intensity that I think Dennis would have. When I see Rob, I see an inner turmoil that is great for the role,” he said. “And Dane is really interesting. He has a beautiful face, but it’s a hard face to grasp. It’s hard to see how Dane reads sometimes, and the same thing goes for James Dean.”

West Memphis Three drama 'Devil's Knot' with Reese Witherspoon sets release date -- EXCLUSIVE

Devils-Knot-Exclusive-poster.jpg

Devil’s Knot, Atom Egoyan’s docudrama about the West Memphis Three, will arrive in U.S. theaters and on VOD on May 9. Starring Reese Witherspoon and Colin Firth, the movie recounts the tragic true story of three missing boys in the religious community of Memphis, Ark., and the frenzied rush to justice that condemned three teenagers to prison for a horrific crime. The West Memphis Three — Damien Echols, Jesse Misskelley Jr., and Jason Baldwin — were convicted in 1994 of murdering the three boys, in part because of hyped suspicions that the trio were satanists. Doubts about the three men’s guilt were widespread, though, and their plight became a cause célèbre that resulted in several documentaries that shed new light on the case.

In the film, Witherspoon plays the mother of one of the victims, but her anguish gives way to doubts as community fears and hysteria gain momentum leading up to the trial. Firth plays Ron Lax, the private investigator who becomes suspicious of the community’s rush to judgment and pokes holes in the evidence used to convict the teenagers.
