Aubrey Plaza is a dead girl(friend) walking…
The first trailer for Life After Beth has been released, starring the 30-year-old half-Puerto Rican actress/comedian as a zombie girlfriend.
Dane DeHaan stars as a teen named Zach, who is heartbroken when his girlfriend Beth (portrayed by Plaza) unexpectedly dies. He gets a second chance to do what he wants when Beth is resurrected using the Old Testament.
Things don’t quite work the way he wants it, as evidenced in the trailer, which shows Beth and Zach dealing with the fact that she;s a zombie and looking less human each time. She destroys a lifeguard tower and even devours a man.
“What do you want from me Zach, I’m a zombie!” Beth yells.
Directed by Jeff Baena, Life After Beth also stars John C. Reilly, Molly Shannon, Anna Kendrick and Matthew Gray Gubler.
The comedy premieres on DirecTV on July 17 and will get a limited theatrical release starting August 15.
The film will also hit NEXT Fest, which takes place in Los Angeles from August 7-10.
