Back in February, "Warm Bodies," the one-of-a-kind zombie rom-com, brought life to our cold, dead hearts, so now we're happy to exclusively announce that you'll be able to bring home the story of R when the movie hits Blu-ray and DVD on June 4.

To celebrate the announce, we've been given a special sneak peek at one of the disc's several behind-the-scenes extras that features Teresa Palmer, who played the love of R's afterlife, Julie.

In the clip from the special features, Palmer explains what working with Nicholas Hoult was like, even when he couldn't speak.

Despite what you may have learned from the "Hangover" films, endless nights of drunken debauchery don't always result in hilarious misadventures. In fact, the results can quite often be very tragic and very dangerous, as is the case in the Sundance Film Festival drama "Wish You Were Here," starring Joel Edgerton and Teresa Palmer.

"It's [about] four people going to Cambodia on a holiday. Three of them come home," Edgerton told MTV News about the film's premise. "The film is told in Sydney in forward time, then you're going backwards to pick up traces and flashes of evidence of what really went down."

Beautifully shot and with a memorable, tough-guy-meets-vulnerable-dad performance from Joel Edgerton, "Wish You Were Here" keeps threatening to become a first-rate mystery tale about secrets, lies and sex.

Its story flits back and forth through time, unspooling a tale about a Cambodian holiday gone bad and the ramifications of an ecstasy-fueled party that leaves one man missing and the lives of his vacation mates in shambles. But there are a few weakly drawn characters and a rushed ending that leaves the timeline-hopping plot strands in an unsatisfying cinematic heap. It all made for an entertaining opening to the 2012 Sundance Film Festival on Thursday (January 19), but one that left us itching for some truly great festival films in the days to come.

Justice LeagueConsider yourself warned: "Justice" could be headed to theaters near you in 2013.

In an interview with The Los Angeles Times, Warner Bros. president Jeff Robinov dropped two major bombshells for DC Comics fans: a new reboot of Batman is in the works, and a "Justice League" movie should (finally) be hitting theaters in 2013. According to him, the new Batman flick would come after "The Dark Knight Rises" hits theaters, and the "Justice League" film is a way to fill the void left when "Harry Potter" ends this summer.

We've got plenty more news for you today, including who's going to play Robert Pattinson's wife in "Cosmopolis," what "I Am Number Four" star might join "Warm Bodies," and all the details about J.J. Abrams' new book project.

Topher Grace in Take Me Home TonightAn '80s-set comedy starring Topher Grace, Anna Faris, Dan Fogler, Teresa Palmer, Chris Pratt and Michelle Trachtenberg sounds like a cinematic slam dunk. Sure, it's not going to put up "Avatar" numbers at the box office, but there's definitely an audience willing to dole out good money to see that young, hip cast party like it's 1988. And yet "Take Me Home Tonight" (formerly titled "Kids in America") has languished on a shelf since completing principal photography in early 2007.

Well, Grace and co. can finally breathe a sigh of relief, because the film will finally see the light of day (or, rather, the dark of theater) on March 4, 2011. MTV News recently caught up with Grace, who's also a producer on "Take Me Home Tonight," and asked him to talk about the film's long odyssey to the big screen.

"[The film came from] this idea that every generation had a film that looked about 20 years back," Grace said, adding that most '80s flicks blatantly make fun of the decade. "We wanted to do something that felt like it was literally made in the '80s. So, we brought this to a different studio, and they were very supportive when they made the film, so we're very grateful for that." Read More...

Remember James Frey, author of "A Million Little Pieces"? Yeah, he's the guy Oprah ripped a new one for passing that off as a memoir when it was mostly fiction. Turns out, making stuff up is a good talent to have: "I Am Number Four," the best-selling sci-fi novel Frey subsequently co-wrote with Jobie Hughes, is bound for the big screen courtesy of "Disturbia" director DJ Caruso. And its interest-piquing new trailer just debuted on Yahoo.

The plot centers on nine infant aliens who are sent to Earth when their planet is destroyed, develop super powers and are hunted by the Mogadorians (the evil guys who trashed their home). Hmm ... sounds eerily similar to this little movie we once saw called "Superman 2." But, hey, we loved that flick, so we're not complaining. Read More...

The movie isn't out until February 2011, but "I Am Number Four" the book hits stores next week on August 3. I read it several weeks ago and can't recommend it highly enough; it's an easy, fun sci-fi read, one that can be enjoyed equally by teens and adults.

The story follows a young human-like alien from the planet Lorien, which was destroyed some years ago the Mogadorians, by a marauding race of invaders. Lorien's last hope lies with nine babies who are sent to go into hiding on the planet Earth. Each one is assigned a guardian/teacher and each will develop a range of superhuman powers as they advance into their adult years. As an added twist, each of the nine is assigned a number; the Mogadorians can hunt them all down, but the surviving Lorien children can only be killed in the order of their numbers.

That's the basic setup. "Disturbia" director D.J. Caruso is busy shooting the adaptation right now in Pittsburgh, along with stars Alex Pettyfer as the titular Number Four, Timothy Olyphant as the boy's guardian, Teresa Palmer as fellow alien refugee Number Six and "Glee" star Dianna Agron as high school sweetheart Sarah. Amidst a busy shooting schedule, Caruso took some time out to chat exclusively with MTV about how things are coming along. Read More...
