Who ever thought zombie rom com could ever be entertaining and funny, but WARM BODIES was just that. Now WARM BODIES starring Nicholas Hoult and Teresa Palmer is coming to Blu-ray, DVD, Video on Demand, and Pay-Per-View June 4 for those who missed the quirky romantic comedy or those wanting to own it.
The Blu-ray Disc and DVD bonus features include deleted scenes, a gag reel, audio commentary with screenwriter/director Jonathan Levine and actors Nicholas Hoult and Teresa Palmer as well as multiple featurettes going behind-the-scenes of WARM BODIES including catchy titles like "A Little Less Dead," "Boy Meets, ER, Doesn't Eat Girl," and “Zombie Acting Tips with Rob Corddry.” The WARM BODIES Blu-ray Disc and DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $39.99 and $29.95, respectively.
A 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.
Hot young actors Nicholas Hoult (Jack the Giant Slayer, X-Men: First Class) and Teresa Palmer (I Am Number Four, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice) star, along with an all-star supporting cast including Primetime Emmy® winner Rob Corddry (Outstanding Special Class - Short-Format Live-Action Entertainment Programs, “Children’s Hospital,” 2008; Rapture-Palooza), Dave Franco (21 Jump Street), Analeigh Tipton (Crazy Stupid Love), Cory Hardrict (upcoming Lovelace, Battle Los Angeles) and Academy Award® nominee John Malkovich (Actor in a Supporting Role, In the Line of Fire, 1993; Red, Burn After Reading).
Written for the screen and directed by Jonathan Levine (50/50) and based on the novel by Isaac Marion, the film arrives on Blu-ray Disc (plus Digital Copy and Ultraviolet), DVD (plus Digital Copy and Ultraviolet), Video on Demand and Pay-Per-View June 4th from Summit Entertainment, a LIONSGATE company.
