Though you can currently see her on top of the North American box office in the zom-rom-com “Warm Bodies,” Teresa Palmer went back to her Australian roots recently, starring in the Nash Edgerton-helmed short “Bear.” After making waves on the festival circuit last year stopping in Cannes, Milano, Athens and SXSW , you can now pull up a chair and give it watch in the comfort of your own home courtesy of Vice.

Review: 'Warm Bodies' Exhumes A Zombie Romance Without Much Of A Pulse

Credit where credit is due, “Warm Bodies” does at the very least bring a zombie to the big screen that we’ve never seen before: one seemingly caught in the grip of an existential crisis. When we first meet the undead R (Nicholas Hoult) he’s literally and figuratively shuffling through life. His decayed state has also robbed him of his memory (he can’t remember his name, hence the initial), he’s not quite sure when his zombie life began and his “hoodie would suggest I was unemployed.” This is part of the pleasingly sardonic opening to the movie (you can watch the first four minutes right here), but unfortunately, it’s a tone that eventually evaporates from “Warm Bodies” in favor of something far more conventional.

Initially slated to come at the tail end of this summer, "Warm Bodies" was moved to a release date closer to Valentine's Day presumably to play off its zombie romance center. But judging by this trailer, there might be other reasons it was shifted to an early winter bow.

With the Vietnam war raging, one man will make a decision that tests his own morals, ethics and view on American life: fight for his country or go skinny dipping with Teresa Palmer? Yes, those are quandaries Liam Hemsworth faces in "Love and Honor," the kind of movie Channing Tatum used to do.

While plot details about Terrence Malick's "Knight Of Cups" remain unknown, and will likely remain that way until the movie comes out sometime in the next decade, if we were to ascertain the plot based on the set photos so far, we'd guess it's an unofficial sequel to "The Dark Knight Rises," where the retired Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale) is now living under a new identity on the beach, and is spending his remaining years chasing young women in the surf, with his wingman played by Wes Bentley.

Landing a script on the Black List doesn't necessarily mean your movie will get made right away (please see the forever-developing "Prisoners" as a hot script stuck at the starting gates) but it does mean that when the ball gets rolling, top talent is going to swarm. And for Roberto Patino, his 2009 script for "Cut Bank" has rounded up a helluva cast.

Call it a resurgence of Australian cinema, but it seems the even-year Sundance Film Festivals are the place to catch the movies that find their way across the pond and to the audiences that desire dark, interesting thrillers that masquerade as family dramas. “Animal Kingdom” introduced a wide audience to Joel Edgerton who played as ruthless family man Baz. It's a fitting return for Edgerton to the 2012 Sundance Film Festival with “Wish You Were Here,” an examination of how three people deal with the loss of their friend after a week of partying in Southeast Cambodia. Of course, it wouldn't be a modern Australian thriller if there weren't hidden intentions, distorted memory and deconstruction of the nuclear family. Produced under the Aussie film collective, Blue Tongue Films (which counts among its members Joel's brother Nash and co-writer/director Kieran Darcy-Smith), the film opened the festival last Thursday and The Playlist caught up with Edgerton and co-star Teresa Palmer about their character choices, future projects and the distribution model they'd prefer for their film.

Every few years, Hollywood annoints a new star. Sometimes it's a Tom Hardy, other times it's a Taylor Kitsch and it can also be a  Jeremy Renner. What these actors all share in common is that they're considered leading men long before they're actually stars: meaning, they're leading films, but the public doesn't know who they are yet. In the case of Hardy and Renner, The Weinstein Company and Paramount are bumping the releases of their smaller films ("The Wettest County" and "Hansel And Gretel: Witch Hunters" respectively) in hopes that their upcoming tentpoles ("The Dark Knight" and "The Bourne Legacy" respectively) will match the signal to noise ratio to their Tinsteltown buzz (in the case of Kitsch, both Disney and Universal are gambling hard).
