"Warm Bodies" might be zombie movie, but it's also a romance. And you can't have a zombie romance without having some self-aware humor in the thing. That would be too ridiculous, otherwise.

That being the case, it should come as no surprise to find a guy like Rob Corddry showing in "Warm Bodies" as one of the zombies that give the movie a fun sense of humor.

In this exclusive extra from the Blu-ray, we see Corddry and leading man Nicholas Hoult interacting as the walking dead, and thanks to some improvising, they're also the laughing dead.

"Warm Bodies" is available for digital download today and will hit Blu-ray and DVD on June 4.

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.

Warm Bodies

Another slow weekend at the box office has led to a zombie takeover. "Warm Bodies" debuted to $19.5 million, and easily topped the only other new release of the week, Sylvester Stallone's "Bullet to the Head," which managed to muster just $4.5 million.

The zombie romance starring Nicholas Hoult and Teresa Palmer, in addition to taking the top spot at the box office, managed to score some of the year's best reviews, currently sitting at a 78 percent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

The same cannot be said for Stallone and "Bullet to the Head." The Walter Hill-director film marks the second box office failure for a member of "The Expendables" this year. Arnold Schwarzenegger's "The Last Stand" has been pulled from wide release after just three weeks in theaters. To date, it has made only $11.7 million.

MTV News headed to Montreal, Canada to not only visit the zombie apocalypse but participate in it. Christina Garibaldi took a trip to the set of "Warm Bodies," the undead romance set to rekindle audiences' hearts this weekend.

On the set, Garibaldi even got to go full zombie, donning some ragged clothes and undead makeup to fit the part. Then to make for a more convincing member of the horde, she got some helpful advice from star Nicholas Hoult.

"The thing we are trying to stay clear of is overdoing it," Hoult said. "It's just like your body's real tired and heavy, just kind of slump around, you know, on your way back to the club, and your momentum is more carrying you than anything else."

"Warm Bodies" sounds kind of weird, right? It's a "Twilight"-like paranormal romance, except it's about a zombie? MTV News just had to find out what the latest movie from "50/50" director Jonathan Levine, so Christina Garibaldi headed to the set.

The way star Teresa Palmer describes it, the somewhat silly premise is a way to have your brains and eat them too.

"When you think of zombie movies you think of R-rated, everyone eating brains, blood and gore, craziness like that," she said. "In our film, it's great because we sort of get the best of both worlds and we get to see that typical zombie genre, but then there's also a lot more emotional depth to our film and there's a love story and these zombies they were once real people and they still have the same feelings and thoughts, especially R."

"Warm Bodies" opens on February 1.

Warm Bodies

Despite utter zombie exhaustion, "Warm Bodies" has a premise we could potentially get behind. Sure, there's a lot of room for some cheeseball moments when you have a zombie falling in love and slowly becoming human again, but at least it's something different.

If you remain unconvinced that anything original can be done with zombies anymore, we suggest you check out the first four minutes, which Fandango just posted.

You'll be able to get a sense of what they're going for, and you'll get to see some Rob Cordry, which is always a good thing.

Check out the first four minutes and the official synopsis for "Warm Bodies" after the jump!

Seth RogenIf you were still holding out hope that Seth Rogen would be a part of Judd Apatow's "Knocked Up" spinoff, it's time to give it up.

"I'm not in it," he tells Movies.com, saying that his involvement would be a bit jarring for the audience. "It was a good choice, honestly, because I think it would've confused people … But I'm really looking forward to seeing it; I thought the script was unbelievably funny."

He adds that the long-developing survival horror comedy "Jay and Seth vs. The Apocalypse" will start shooting this February.
