Warm Bodies is a twist on the usual romantic comedy, with zombies added into the mix.
Based on the novel by Issac Marion, the movie stars Nicholas Hoult (Jack the Giant Slayer) as R, a zombie who rescues human survivor Julie (Teresa Palmer, I Am Number Four) from an attack by other zombies. The two form a bond in their struggle for survival, while R becomes increasingly more human and starts a chain of events that begins to transform the other zombies.
Critics loved Warm Bodies, giving it an 80% approval, according to Rotten Tomatoes. Moviegoers felt the same, and the film earned $66 million at the box office.
The Blu-ray and DVD come with plenty of special features:

We're yet to see the first trailer for Joon-ho Bong's upcoming English language debut Snowpiercer (although we did get a few snippets of footage thanks to an international featurette), but to tide us over a new image has been released featuring several of the main players from the mysterious sci-fi, including Chris Evans (Captain America: The Winter Soldier), Ewen Bremner (Jack the Giant Slayer), Octavia Spencer (The Help), Kang-ho Song (The Good, the Bad, the Weird), Go Ah-sung (The Host) and Tilda Swinton (We Need to Talk About Kevin) - the latter of whom is sporting a shoe on her head...
Snowpiercer is based upon the French graphic novel Le Transperceneige by Jacques Lob and Jean-Marc Rochette and takes place in an apocalyptic near-future, where an Ice Age has killed all life on Earth, save the for inhabitants of a train called the Snowpiercer. Also featuring in the cast »

Now that Warner Bros.’ television and home entertainment divisions have been re-aligned, all eyes are focused on whether newly installed CEO Kevin Tsujihara will implement a similar management shakeup at the studio’s motion picture operation.
The fate of the movie group’s top executive, Jeff Robinov, is on the minds of those both inside and outside the Burbank lot. Despite his skills as a seasoned creative executive and a summer lineup of potential blockbusters that’s the envy of his rivals, Robinov, 54, has made some major missteps that raise questions about his leadership.
When he learned in late January that he hadn’t landed the CEO job at Warner Bros., the executive did something unthinkable: He yelled at and hung up the phone on his boss, Barry Meyer, after the WB honcho delivered the bad news to him the night before the announcement of Tsujihara’s promotion was made public. »

As the summer movie season brings speculation about flops and bombs, James argues that, for viewers, there's no such thing as failure...
We're now well into blockbuster season, and the rest of the summer lies before us bright with big screen promise. The tentpole features are stacked like tenpins on the shiny stage, and you're eyeing them up from afar and you're wearing jaunty shoes. Which ones will fall and which ones will remain standing proudly once the turn's been rolled and the tallies have been totalled up?
The bowling metaphor is ill-fitting and awful (even more ill-fitting and awful than the shoes) so I apologise for chuckin' it up. Nevertheless, if you view it from a certain angle (probably the gutter) the summer movie season does look like a game. It's a kitschy game that's subject to quirks of fate and chance, and it's all about the numbers. »

If second place is the first loser — then this week, that’s a pretty great place to be. Warner Bros.’ literary adaptation The Great Gatsby stunned the industry today with a magnificent $51.1 million debut. Of course, that number wasn’t large enough to take down Disney’s superhero sequel, Iron Man 3, which topped the box office for a second weekend with $72.5 million, but it’s impressive nonetheless. Ah, the summer movie season: when films actually make money! (Provided that they’re not called Peeples.)
Iron Man 3, which had the second best opening of all time last weekend with $174.1 million, »

"300: Rise of an Empire" is moving from a planned summer 2013 release to March 7, 2014.
At the same time, distributor Warner Bros. is moving the Tom Cruise sci-fi action movie "All You Need is Kill" to June 6, 2014 because it had been scheduled for March 7. Consider that a good sign for "Kill" -- the studio must be confident if they believe it's fit for the competitive summer schedule -- but another bad sign for "300."
For the few who believe that a sequel to "300" even sounded like a good idea in the first place, changing a release date from a not-so-great August opening to an even worse March date is not what a studio does to a tentpole they believe in.
Sure, the original "300" opened in March and took the industry by surprise to become a mega-hit, but the last movie Warner Bros. shifted from a planned summer release to March was "Jack the Giant Slayer, »
News 10 May 2013 - 06:07
Warner Bros has confirmed that it's pushing back the release of its 300 prequel, 300: Rise Of An Empire, from this summer to next year. The movie, which is being directed by Noam Murro, was originally due to open in August 2013. Warner Bros will now be releasing the film on March 7th 2014.
Comfortably one of the lowest profile films of a crowded summer, 300: Rise Of An Empire was always going to have something of an uphill struggle on its hands to make a mark. And perhaps Warner Bros has been influenced somewhat by Paramount's successful gamble in moving G.I. Joe: Retaliation back from a summer to March release date. The G.I. Joe sequel overcame scathing reviews to earn over $350m worldwide.
That said, Warner Bros »
Every year studios tend to overestimate their tentpoles and then end up delaying them a year or more. 2013 saw an unprecedented amount of blockbusters originally slated for 2012 get pushed back six months off their originally intended bow: "The Great Gatsby," "World War Z," "Man Of Steel," "Jack The Giant Slayer," the list goes on (we took a deeper look at these films earlier in the year, see "The Delayed Films Of 2013: Why They Were Pushed Back & Which Ones Will You Be Seeing?"). The latest casualty is Warner Bros. "300: Rise Of An Empire," and it's easy to see why. Three months away from release, buzz on 'Rise Of An Empire' is fairly low and its awareness rating is probably not doing much better. Coupled with the fact that WB isn't having their best year (a string of bombs and underperformers including "Jack the Giant Slayer," "Beautiful Creatures," "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone »

As word spreads that Warner Bros has bought the rights to Dungeons & Dragons, Liam explains how a new movie adaptation could work...
News broke recently that Warner Bros has acquired the rights to make a film based on the world’s biggest table-top roleplaying game, Dungeons & Dragons. In fact a script, written by David Leslie Johnson, had been in development for some time, based on the assumption that the D&D brand is no longer poison after the first adaptation back in 2000.
Scepticism aside, this is exciting news, with the mainstream popularity of Game Of Thrones and the continuing tales from Middle Earth, epic fantasy has never been more bankable. The only problem is that unlike other franchises, D&D is a game built around players constructing their own narrative. Sure, creator Gary Gygax provided plenty of descriptions for the various worlds (I »
At the end of April we reported that Lily James (Downton Abbey) was to take the lead for Walt Disney Pictures live-action version of Cinderella. Rumours were also floating around that Game Of Thrones star Richard Madden was to play her Prince Charming…and it’s been confirmed!
James and Madden will be directed by acting legend Kenneth Branagh, with Cate Blanchett featuring as the wicked step-mother. Live-action fairytales seem to go one of two ways (other examples include Red Riding Hood, Hansel And Gretel Witch Hunters, Jack The Giant Slayer) but with Branagh taking the reigns this could be brilliant!
Cinderella is expected to start filming in October, with an estimated release date of Christmas 2014.

Director Bryan Singer has tweeted a picture from the set of "X-Men: Days of Future Past," which is currently shooting in Canada. The set-up is, as singer says, more reminiscent of mission control than a film set thanks to the film being shot in both 3D and Simul-Cam.
Simul-Cam technology has been employed in films like "Avatar," "Real Steel" and "Jack the Giant Slayer" to effortlessly blend CGI and live action footage. You can check out the full picture and tweet below.
Shooting native 3D and Simul-cam. Looks like friggin mission control. twitter.com/BryanSinger/st…

So what could they be shooting right now that would require Simul-Cam? Peter Dinklage shot down rumors that he's playing a CGI character, so that's not an option. Judging by the actors that have been photographed on set and their futuristic/post-apocalyptic wardrobe, I'd bet that Singer »

Legendary Entertainment is poised to leave the Warner Bros. fold by the end of the year and set up shop at a rival studio, unless the parties can mend their frayed relationship and come to terms on a new deal, which sources describe as “unlikely” at this juncture.
If the companies fail to extend their current co-production and distribution pact when they formally sit down to negotiate in the next month or so, it would spell the end to one of Hollywood’s most successful partnerships after eight years.
Tensions over their unresolved issues come at an awkward time for both, just as Warner Bros. is getting ready to release three of the partners’ high-profile summer titles, “Pacific Rim,” “Man of Steel” and “Hangover Part III.” All three offerings are expected to generate a massive box office haul for both sides, which are obligated to continue co-funding and releasing pictures »

If you missed the hilarious and heart warming Warm Bodies starring Nicholas Hoult (X-Men Days of Future Past) when it was in theaters, you have a chance to redeem yourself coming this month. You could wait until June 4th for the Blu-Ray and DVD release, or you can catch the early digital download release May 14th. Here’s the press release.
Cold Body. Warm Heart. “An inspired mash-up of zombie heart and romantic comedy brains”
– Peter Debruge, Variety “The perfect date movie!”
– Kevin McCarthy, CBS Radio “The greatest zombie love story ever told.”

The stories surrounding the production of Jane Got a Gun will not be soon forgotten, but thankfully it looks like things are finally falling into place for the anticipated film.
Details remain unknown as to why director Lynne Ramsey exited the project as production was starting, and since then, there has been a spiral of knock-on effects that have threatened to bring the film to its knees. But producers Scott Steindorff and Natalie Portman have remained resilient, and have been working incredibly hard to pull off the herculean feat of seeing the film through to production.
Following Ramsey’s exit, the filmmakers brought in Gavin O’Connor (Warrior) to replace her in the director’s chair.
- Kenji Lloyd
The actor will become the fourth to be cast in the role of Natalie Portman's Western, reports Deadline.
Jude Law was the next to step in, but left following the departure of director Lynne Ramsey.
Bradley Cooper was most recently attached to the part, but was forced to give it up when his schedule became too busy.
The film stars Portman as a woman who enlists the aid of an old lover (Edgerton) after her husband (Noah Emmerich) finds himself in trouble with an outlaw leader (McGregor).
Jane Got a Gun will now shoot under director Gavin O'Connor.
The decidedly odd zombie flick, Warm Bodies, is coming your way on Blu-Ray, DVD, VOD, etc., etc., on June 4th, but there’s an early window opening May 14th for download.
If you caught this one in theaters, there’s a pretty good chance you want to see it again. It’s that kind of film. Even I want to see it again, and I’m rather picky about what I watch more than once. This early window trend is pretty interesting actually, and several other movies have been pushing this recently. Why not get that one last chance to see the film a few weeks before you can pick up the Blu-Ray?
The Blu-Ray looks like a solid release as well, with a lot of bonus features – see full list below. I’m thinking the commentary track will be worth it alone.
