I guess when you’re dead, rain isn’t much of a hassle. You can’t still get cold if you’re already dead, can you? Isn’t that, like, one of the “benefits”? Anyways, check out some new images from Jonathan Levine’s “Warm Bodies”, starring Nicholas Hoult, Teresa Palmer, Rob Corddry, Analeigh Tipton, John Malkovich, Lizzy Caplan, Dave Franco, Cory Hardrict, and Justin Bradley.
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.
Hoult is R, and shambles into theaters August 10, 2012.
Levine also wrote the script, based on the novel by Isaac Marion. Here’s hoping he did a lot of work on the Third Act, which saw hero zombie R not doing a whole lot.
