I’m really surprised by just how faithfully writer/director Jonathan Levine seems to have captured the Isaac Marion book “Warm Bodies”. The tone, the look, right down to the casting, and I’m not even a big fan of Nicholas Hoult, but in zombie make-up, he kinda works. Although, I still think an actor with a Matthew Lillard body type would have made a more appropriate M than comedian Rob Corddry, but hey, that’s a small nitpick. Check out a new 60 second trailer for “Warm Bodies”. You’ll believe that rotting flesh can love again.
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.
Starring Nicholas Hoult, Teresa Palmer, Rob Corddry, Analeigh Tipton, John Malkovich, Lizzy Caplan, Dave Franco, Cory Hardrict, and Justin Bradley.
