Just when I'd gotten used to the fact that I was going to have to wait until August to see the big-screen adaptation of "Warm Bodies," Summit Entertainment has thrown a kink in my excitement by pushing the film's release back six months to February 1, 2013.
According to Variety, the February release date could be better for the film as it is, right now, the only wide release scheduled for that weekend and won't have as much competition.
"Warm Bodies" is based on Isaac Marion's novel of the same name and in a nutshell, is the story of a very unlikely romance between a zombie named R, played by Nicholas Hoult, and human named Julie, played by Teresa Palmer.
Aussie actress Teresa is just as excited as I am to see the finished product and had only wonderful things to say about her experience making the film when we caught up with her at the Sundance Film Festival.
"'Warm Bodies' is a truly unique zombie film. Yes, it has those elements of a zombie movie, and for those who embrace that genre, they're not going to be disappointed because we have a lot of those typical action sequences in zombie films, but really, at the heart of the story is this relationship between R and Julie, and it's unlike anything I think you've seen on film before," she explained. "It's so sweet, and there's a lot humor... I think people can absolutely relate to R, who plays our lovable zombie. He's an outsider, and it's very much an 'Edward Scissorhands'-type story and it's really beautiful how this romance blossoms."
