Warm Bodies (2013)
Warm Bodies SynopsisA funny new twist on a classic love story, Warm Bodies is a poignant tale about the power of human connection. After a zombie epidemic, R (a highly unusual zombie) encounters Julie (a human survivor), and rescues her from a zombie attack. Julie sees that R is different from the other zombies, and as the two form a special relationship in their struggle for survival, R becomes increasingly more human - setting off an exciting, romantic, and often comical chain of events that begins to transform the other zombies and maybe even the whole lifeless world.

There are so many goodies out this week that we couldn’t even get to all of them, but read on to learn about some of June 4th's best releases, and maybe even a few that may have slipped under your radar.

Warm Bodies Blu-ray Clips Explain How To Make A Zombie Laugh And More
Warm Bodies is hitting Blu-ray and DVD next month, and to celebrate the upcoming release, Summit Entertainment has released several clips that take a look at the filming of the flick. In particular, the first one is super amusing and looks into Nicholas Hoult and Rob Corddry learning to grunt effectively for their roles as zombies in the film. Hoult says that Corddry made it his goal to get the younger actor to crack up during the zombie scenes.

Warm Bodies Will Find A Heart On Blu-ray And DVD In June
Studios are busy trying to create young adult-oriented flicks that can bring the teen audience into the theater in droves post Twilight. This year, the fun Beautiful Creatures barely made a mark at the box office while the zombie flick Warm Bodies did somewhat better than expected. Another YA book-turned-movie, City of Bones, is set to make an appearance in theaters late this summer, but in the interim, you can catch its precurser Warm Bodies when it hits Blu-ray and DVD on June 4.

Weekend Box Office: Stallone Bites Bullet to the Head

Conventional wisdom says that next big thing will be Fifty Shades of Grey, the erotic and critically reviled novel currently on its way toward a film adaptation. But could the next Twilight be something good instead-- and already out in theaters?

For the sake of creating a believable relationship between Julie and R, there are some fairly big changes made to the latter half of Warm Bodies’ storyline when bringing it to the big screen.

Warm Bodies Director Jonathan Levine Talks Accessing The Zombie Mind
Making an adaptation of a book told in the first person is more than enough of a challenge, but as you can imagine that task is only made harder when the protagonist happens to be a zombie. Not only do you have to deal with widening perspective and creating a larger world, you also have to deal with the fact that from outward appearances the hero is a mumbling, stumbling, brainless bag of meat that spends every moment dreaming of devouring human flesh.

How Brain Damage Patients Helped Rob Corddry Understand Zombies In Warm Bodies
You wouldn’t think it would be too hard to play a member of the walking dead. You slap on some make-up, stumble a bit, and let out the occasional groan. Sounds simple enough, right? Well, it wasn’t enough for Rob Corddry. Who stars as a zombie in the new movie Warm Bodies. Inspired by a script he loved and a real desire to nail his audition, he took it to a completely new level...

Warm Bodies Star Rob Corddry Delivers Zombie Acting Tips
You might know Corddry from his goofy performances in The Daily Show With Jon Stewart, Hot Tub Time Machine or Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay. But in the new zombie-centered romantic comedy from Jonathan Levine, Warm Bodies, Corddry took on his role—that of a zombie called M—with the kind of care and contemplation one typically associates with his hero, the great Daniel Day-Lewis.

Explore What Makes A Zombie With Cool New Warm Bodies Interactive Infographic
Over the years we've seen many different kinds of zombies. Sure, George A. Romero popularized the shambling, brain-loving type, but as the subgenre has developed so have the creatures. Some titles feature the undead with the ability to communicate, while others have them all as world-class sprinters. Come February director Johnathan Levine will introduce another new kind of zombie to the mix.

Warm Bodies Clips Show A Disbelieving John Malkovich And An Inquisitive Analeigh Tipton
One of the numerous things Summit's Warm Bodies has going for it is its supporting cast, among which are John Malkovich and Analeigh Tipton. The former's lengthy list of credits speaks for itself, while the latter is a bit less known but has also demonstrated her acting and comedic talents in past work - particularly in the role of the lovesick Jessica in Crazy, Stupid, Love. Both actors are featured in the latest clips for Warm Bodies.

Warm Bodies Trailer Has A Zombie Craving Love, Not Brains
Based on Isaac Marion's novel of the same name, Warm Bodies stars Nicholas Hoult as R, an undead young man suffering from some serious ennui. His life—or lack thereof—is just a steady procession of meandering, and occasionally feasting on the soft parts of humans who still have heartbeats. That is until he meets Julie, a girl with a shotgun who gets his heart going. As their names suggest, it's a take on Romeo & Juliet...

Warm Bodies Gets A Sweet, Funny New Poster
When the first trailer arrived last week a lot of people quickly changed their minds about the upcoming zom-rom-com Warm Bodies. While the first few official stills seemed to paint it as "Twilight with zombies" (it doesn't help that it's being released by the same studio), the footage we saw on Thursday replaced ideas of moody, sparkly members of the undead with laughs, cleverness, and a sense of fun

First Look At Nicholas Hoult As A Zombie In Warm Bodies
Nicholas Hoult is no stranger to heavy makeup. While he looked fairly normal at the start of last summer's X-Men: First Class, by the end of the movie he was blue, had an animal-like face, and was furry all over. In Jonathan Levine's Warm Bodies he will once again be undergoing a physical transformation, but instead of looking like a fuzzy beast, this time he's going full-on zombie.

Tipton, Franco, And Hardrict Join Warm Bodies
Immediately you should be asking yourself, “who are these kids?” We often develop reservations quickly when announcements are made regarding actors with whom we are not familiar. I count myself among those quick to doubt. I’ll admit that when I found out that, for example, Tipton got her start on America’s Next Top Model, I found myself cringing.

John Malkovich May Play The Villain In Zombie Romance Story Warm Bodies
One thing that makes me curious about this film is how it will change the dynamic between the undead and the humans and make the audience cheer for the zombie. Thanks to the films of George A. Romero the average movie-going audience is conditioned to not only hate the walking dead, but to blow its head off with a shotgun.
