Here’s the trailer for the upcoming zombie comedy Warm Bodies, which stars Teresa Palmer, Nicholas Hoult, Rob Corddry, Dave Franco, and John Malkovich, and is written and directed by Jonathan Levine (50/50). The film looks to take an interesting spin on the zombie genre, and although we’ve seen films like this before, I’m hopeful this will be a cut above the rest. Hit the jump for the synopsis and trailer, Warm Bodies is set to hit theaters February 1, 2013.
A funny new twist on a classic love story, WARM BODIES is a poignant tale about the power of human connection. After a zombie epidemic, R (a highly unusual zombie) encounters Julie (a human survivor), and rescues her from a zombie attack. Julie sees that R is different from the other zombies, and as the two form a special relationship in their struggle for survival, R becomes increasingly more human – setting off an exciting, romantic, and often comical chain of events that begins to transform the other zombies and maybe even the whole lifeless world.
