FlogDailyHerald: Warm Bodies screening lacks screen; Levine ’00 still awesome

Your boy Jonathan Levine ’00

In what some might describe as an anticlimactic moment, the “advance screening” of Jonathan Levine ’00’s upcoming film Warm Bodies turned out to be neither advanced nor screened, as a projector malfunction derailed the popular event. Levine’s film had students lining up by the dozen for the few remaining seats well before the 7 p.m. scheduled start, but those unable to secure a spot can enjoy a nice bit of schadenfreude knowing that the actual evening turned out to be 30 minutes of waiting followed by 45 minutes of Q&A followed by 1 minute(s) of “Get the fuck out of here, our projector’s broken.”

Jonathan Levine ’00 to speak at ‘Warm Bodies’ advance screening this Sunday

The string of Hollywood notables to visit Brown will continue this Sunday night, as Jonathan Levine ’00–director of 2011’s 50/50 and 2008’s The Wackness–will screen and field questions on his upcoming zombie rom-com Warm Bodies. Levine’s latest stars Nicholas Hoult (apparently of fame for his role in the British teenagers-sexing-and-drinking drama series Skins) as a zombie whose love for a living girl (Teresa Palmer) seems to be bringing him back to life, and also stars John Malkovich, Dave Franco, Rob Corddry, and Analeigh Tipton. Though the premise may sound both tired and ridiculous on first glance, the story is adapted from an acclaimed novel of the same title and is one of the more anticipated movies of Winter/Spring 2013. For all those interested in attending (and I can’t see why you wouldn’t be), tickets will be distributed TODAY (Friday) at JWW at 3 p.m., free with a Brown ID, one per person. If you miss that, don’t despair–some walk-in space will be available as well on a first-come, first-serve basis. Don’t miss it.
