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.

Sundance 2014: Dane DeHaan finds 'Life After Beth' a tad unsettling -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

LIFE-AFTER-BETH.jpg

When you lose someone special, it’s rather common to feel severe pangs of regret. Regret that you held back, that you never told that person how you really felt when they were still alive. If only you could go back — or if they could come back — for just one more day or even one last moment together.

In Life After Beth, which premieres on Jan. 19 at the Sundance Film Festival, Zach (Dane DeHaan) gets that opportunity. His dead girlfriend (Aubrey Plaza) has been miraculously resurrected and she has no memory of her recent demise. She looks as fresh and pure as a minister’s daughter on Sunday, but Zach isn’t yet ready to praise Jesus. After all, one person’s “resurrected” is another person’s, um, zombie.

In this exclusive video from the horror-comedy, Beth’s parents (John C. Reilly and Molly Shannon) deem that contradiction a minor semantic quibble. For Zach, he’s stuck in the rarely diagnosed stage of grief some medical professionals describe as Freaked Out. READ FULL STORY

Is John C. Reilly going to be in 'Anchorman 2'? Maybe! (Or not!)

John C. Reilly is maybe going to be in the Anchorman sequel, Anchorman: The Legend Continues. Or not.

The film, which is in production, has been tight-lipped about most details regarding its plot and full cast — but it did put out a casting call for a John C. Reilly lookalike, leading to Internet speculation that Reilly would be reuniting with his Step Brothers co-star alongside already-booked stars Kristen Wiig, Christina Applegate, Steve Carell, and Paul Rudd.

Reps for the film, however, will only confirm that they were indeed looking for a lookalike, saying in a statement, “We were looking for a stand-in for lighting purposes who looks like John C. Reilly. We always demand that every stand-in looks like John C. Reilly.” READ FULL STORY

First 'Wreck-It Ralph' clip: Meet Ralph and Sarah Silverman's Vanellope von Schweetz

Will Disney’s Wreck-It Ralph be a crossover success, appealing to both old-school video game nerds and today’s hyper-stimulated kids? We won’t know for sure until the movie’s release — but judging from this first clip, Ralph looks pretty darn charming.

The film follows the titular character (John C. Reilly), the villain of a retro Donkey Kong-esque game, as he embarks on a game-hopping quest to prove that he can be a hero. In the all-candy world of Sugar Rush, he meets pint-sized Vanellope von Schweetz — a go-kart racer with the mischievous, pinched voice of Sarah Silverman. Ralph and Vanellope’s sweet/tart meet-cute is the subject of the video below:

'Wreck-It Ralph' trailer: A bad video game character tries to turn good -- VIDEO

“I don’t wanna be the bad guy anymore.”

Can you imagine Ganon from The Legend of Zelda saying this? Or Bowser from Super Mario Bros.? Or the centipede from… Centipede?

It’s literally in their programming for video game villains to be troublemakers, but in the new trailer for Walt Disney Animation’s Wreck-It Ralph, the smash-loving antagonist in an 8-bit 1980s arcade game decides to prove there is more to him than just 25 cents worth of mayhem. Of course, it creates tremendous controversy in their pixelated world. READ FULL STORY
