'Warm Bodies' Blu-ray Dated and Detailed

Posted Wed Mar 27, 2013 at 08:00 AM PDT by

The zombie romance flick is slowly dragging its undead feet to Blu-ray in June.

In an early announcement to retailers, Summit Entertainment is bringing 'Warm Bodies' to Blu-ray on June 4.

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.

The film stars hot young actors Nicholas Hoult ('Jack the Giant Slayer,' 'X-Men: First Class') and Teresa Palmer ('I Am Number Four,' 'The Sorcerer’s Apprentice'), 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 Blu-ray/Digital Copy/UltraViolet Combo Pack will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD MA 7.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include: deleted scenes, a gag reel, audio commentary with screenwriter/director Jonathan Levine and actors Nicholas Hoult and Teresa Palmer, and multiple behind-the-scenes featurettes.

The suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $39.99.
