Or zomrom? You know, a combination of zombie and romance? Similar to how people say romcom for Romantic Comedies? Just a thought. In any case, Summit Entertainment has released your first look at stars Nicholas Hoult (of “X-Men: First Class” fame) and Teresa Palmer (easily the best thing about that unGodly awful “I am Number Four”) from their upcoming zomrom “Warm Bodies” for your viewing pleasure.
R is a zombie, but R is so much more. He certainly looks the part with his trademark gait and rotting flesh. Sure he loves to munch on human brains as much as the next dead guy, but something is changing inside. He just met this human girl named Julie on a hunting raid and instead of eating her, he’s decided to save her life and hide her from his friends. In this post apocalyptic world where zombies prey on human survivors, this is certainly a no-no. But R can’t help himself. Julie is causing him to do something he didn’t know he was capable of doing: to feel. For the first time in his death R has found a reason to live..
Based on the novel by Isaac Morton, the post-apocalyptic horror/romantic film from director Jonathan Levine (“The Wackness”) also co-stars Rob Corddry, John Malkovich, Analeigh Tipton, Dave Franco and Cory Hardrict.
