LIFE AFTER BETH First Trailer and Two Posters

Check out the first trailer and two new poster images for Life After Beth, the upcoming horror-comedy starring Aubrey Plaza and Dane DeHann.

Jeff Baena‘s Sundance zom-rom-com also stars Anna Kendrick, John C. Reilly, Molly Shannon, Cheryl Hines, and Paul Reiser.

The movie earned mixed reviews up at Sundance, but praise for its fearless stars. /Film called it “a messy, emotionally gross zombie breakup fable” despite strong central performances. I think it’s just a really fun movie that could do very well with audiences.

A24 releases Life After Beth exclusively on DirecTV on July 17th before opening in theaters on August 15th.

Here’s two posters, featuring DeHaan and Plaza:

Zach is devastated by the unexpected death of his girlfriend, Beth. When she miraculously comes back to life, Zach takes full advantage of the opportunity to experience all the things he regretted not doing when she was alive. However, the newly returned Beth isn’t quite the way he remembered her, and before long, Zach’s world takes a turn for the worse.

Imitating what Dr. Frankenstein did with his monster, writer/director Jeff Baena assembles disparate parts of his film into a new whole and jolts fresh life into it. By fusing elements of a young love story and a zombie movie, he concocts a wickedly funny and shockingly poignant film. With its killer soundtrack and all-star cast, including Aubrey Plaza, whose distinctive delivery has never been used to greater effect, and Dane DeHaan, who perfectly embodies the suffering of a young man with a broken heart and a rotting girlfriend, Life After Beth will leave you dying to see it again.
