So remember that time I reviewed the Warm Bodies movie? Yea, cause it was awesome. Well, That’s Normal was invited to the Warm Bodies press junket to continue our adoration of this little flick. Cue us asking silly questions, eating free food, and then jumping on the one-on-one interview train with our friends Fangirlish. To say it was a delight is an understatement. We came away with new loves (director Jonathan Levine and Nicholas Hoult and Teresa Palmer). Ok, we love them all and we never love everyone at a junket. Never.
So then Dave Franco walked in and we decided to chat about Zombies (not Vampires). I appreciate that he was totally honest when I asked if the Zombie apocalypse happened tomorrow would be befriend the record playing, emo, airplane living Zombies or suit up and join the military to kick Zombie ass. He said he would totally grab a gun. Can’t blame him. Those bonies aren’t nothing to play Candyland with. YIKES.
And then this gal came in. I know, I know I said she reminded me of KStew in my review, and honestly she sort of has a resemblance to her but that’s where it ends because Teresa came in all chipper and cute and Australian accent (I should have brought some Tim Tams) and talking about protein shakes. Nothing like our favorite sour puss. Teresa talked about her role in an upcoming Terrence Malik film… aka she knows nothing concrete about it but we all know it will be genius. And she she told us about how she had some extra time on her hands so she started a website with her friend called Your Zen Life and how it’s been really inspirational for people. So essentially Teresa and her friend Pheobe are me and Bekah only they talk about things like Yoga and eating right and we talk about things like Robert Pattinson’s underwear and the character arcs of people like Carson the Butler on Downton Abbey.
Then I thought a dude made up of all my guy friends decided to crash the junket, turns out it was author Isaac Marion who bears a very strong resemblance to, like everyone in Silver Lake or Echo Park. He talked about the adaptation from book to film and about writing a follow up and some other stuff but I really just wanted to ask him about his tattoos. Too bad we ran out of time. Isaac, call me! We’ll grab coffee at Intellegensia where I will lose you in the crowd of patrons full of your dopplegangers.
We’re getting the band back together! Since it had been like a month since our Twilight blogging crew had gotten together we decided to take this picture of us drinking those blessed Bloody Mary’s like it was the good ol days. Go visit Fangirlish, The Warm Bodies, Hypable and Page to Premiere… cause they’re the best.
Because The Warm Bodies/Fangirlish love us (read: I have a big mouth) they invited us to their one on one with both Nicholas Hoult and director Jonathan Levine. You can read the entire (awesome) transcript over at The Warm Bodies but know that we talked about what he’s obsessed with: making survival bracelets (for repelling out of hotel rooms during press junkets), knitting (I told him about felting, anyone else know about this), his Arctic Monkeys cover band, his shaved head (Mad Max!) and nothing about JLaw (sad). Seriously, go read the transcript, he is lovely and gentle and soft spoken in a good way. I KNOW that according to the Geneva Convention of Man Sharing, he’s already been claimed but I’d like to be put on some sort of waiting list or something.
As you can tell by this terrible photo I took director Jonathan Levine is a cool dude. Like Isaac he also reminded me of like every dude friend I had who lived in my neighborhood who wears dunks. WHICH as I came to find out we used to live like 2 blocks from each other. NBD! Neighbors! Honestly, just go read the transcript of our chat at The Warm Bodies cause Jonathan is pretty awesome as well and our time together deserves to be poured over, word for word. KIDDING. Not really but we talked about everything from the music of Warm Bodies to 50/50 to cancer to Nicholas getting a tatto of his face. It was all awesome. Just like Isaac, I would also take Jonathan to Intelligentsia to chat more and instead lose him among his director/industry type dopplegangers there.
So that was the junket with all it’s questions and tables (round and otherwise) and dudes who look like friends and Bloody Mary’s. Let’s definitely NOT forget the Bloody Mary’s. Warm Bodies hits theaters February 1st, do yourself a favor and go see it.
