It may be true that when you play the game of thrones, you either win or you die, but luckily that isn’t the case with Minecraft. The builders over at WesterosCraft are hard at work on creating the entire A Song of Ice and Fire universe in Minecraft, and with the new addition of King’s Landing (pictured), “they estimate they’re about 70 percent done with the entire continent of Westeros. The team also notes that the latest section of George R. R. Martin’s world took some 100 builders four months to complete and includes roughly 3,000 unique buildings,” reports Wired.

Teresa Palmer – JustJared.com Exclusive Interview
JustJared: How’s the Warm Bodies promo tour going?
Teresa: “I am a little tired! We were in London yesterday, Toronto today, Chicago tonight. Then we’re off to New York and L.A., too.”
JJ: Can you tell us about Warm Bodies and your character Julie?
TP: “I play Julie, and she is the daughter of General Grigio played by John Malkovich. Julie is a spitfire! She’s independent, and sassy, and brave, and she is living in a world of the zombie apocalypse. One day she goes out with a group to find medical supplies, and they get bombarded by zombies. Julie gets taken captive by R – a lovable zombie played by Nicholas Hoult. She’s very fearful, and she doesn’t understand why he hasn’t tried to kill her. Then she starts watching him and realizes that everything they thought they knew about zombies is wrong. There is something very different about R, he has thoughts and feelings and he wants to protect her. Julie’s fear turns into curiosity, and then the curiosity turns into a deeper connection and they realize that through this connection R starts to heal. This sparks a change in not just R, but in all zombies. It’s a really endearing, warm-hearted story.”
JJ: What was your favorite scene to shoot?
TP: “I love the scene on the plane when Julie is talking about her ex-boyfriend Perry, played by Dave Franco, and how she saw a light in him dim. Julie gets emotional, and R is watching her, and he sees her struggling with her emotions, so he touches his hand on his heart and then touches his hand on her heart. It’s a beautiful moment, and it really is a trigger for Julie and she realizes that he is something new, something different, and it affects her to her core. It helps breathe life back into Julie, and she breathes life back into him, and it’s a chain reaction. And a beautiful romance!”

Beautiful Creatures is the latest (and probably most blatant) supernatural romance designed to tap in to some of that Twilight cash. The book series, which began in 2009, isn’t nearly as popular as Twilight was when the first movie opened in 2008, though it’s more well-known than I Am Number Four, which opened at the same time in 2011. With a female lead and a supernatural rather than extraterrestrial focus, Beautiful Creatures also hits the target demographic better than I Am Number Four, so it should have no problem topping that movie’s $55.1 million.
