After dealing with cancer in 50/50, director Jonathan Levine will be taking on a very different, fictional disease for his next film. Later tonight we’ll get the first trailer for Paramount’s big-budget zombie film World War Z, but for those looking for a more intimate take on the creature, we have a surprise. Attached to the final Twilight movie next week, the first trailer for Warm Bodies has made its way online.
Following a zombie played by Nicholas Hoult, the story tells his developing relationship with a human teenage girl (Teresa Palmer) and how he may be able to save his race. As Levine has been known to do, he looks to inject a surprising amount of heart (literally, as well) to this genre. Check out the trailer below for the film also starring Rob Corddry, John Malkovich, Analeigh Tipton, Dave Franco and Cory Hardrict.
WARM BODIES is an upcoming 2013 romantic zombie film based on Isaac Marion’s popular novel of the same name. Directed by Jonathan Levine (50/50), the film stars Nicholas Hoult (Hank McCoy/Beast in the 2011 film X-Men: First Class) and Teresa Palmer (I Am Number Four). The film focuses on the development of the relationship between Julie (a teenage girl) and R (a zombie), their romance sets in motion a sequence of events that might transform the entire lifeless world.
R (Hoult) is a zombie. After a zombie apocalypse, he shambles across an America filled with collapsed buildings, rusted cars, shattered windows, and abandoned high-rises. He can only grunt or moan and craves human brains to get high on their memories. After eating the brains of a suicidal teen, R is overcome with love for the teen’s companion, Julie Grigio (Palmer). R rescues Julie from his zombie pack and takes her back to his lair. She eventually leaves, and R follows her back to Citi Stadium, the largest remaining human refuge.
Warm Bodies opens on February 1st.
