The trailer for the zombie action/romance Warm Bodies starring Nicholas Holt and Teresa Palmer looks kind of great

Nov. 9, 2012by: Paul Shirey

While we were all enthralled (or not) with the trailer for Brad Pitt's WORLD WAR Z yesterday, there was another zombie movie that dropped a trailer. WARM BODIES, starring Nicholas Hoult, Teresa Palmer, John Malkovich, Rob Corddry, and Dave Franco is a zombie romance/action pic that looks way more ZOMBIELAND than Walking Dead. It also looks to be one of the most refreshing takes on the zombie genre, proving that it isn't quite tapped out just yet.

Hoult stars as a zombie who's living the zombie nightmare; walking around slowly, grunting, and eating people. However, after running into a beautiful woman (Palmer), Hoult starts to slowly become more human, which starts to spread much like the zombie virus. All while fighting off a horde of super undead.

Get romantic...with zombies:

When I first saw the stills of this I was pretty dismissive. However, this trailer has sold me. Directed by Jonathan Levine (50/50), it looks like WARM BODIES will benefit from a solid up-and-coming filmmaker and quite possibly be a breakout hit. This could also be your saving grace Valentine's Day date movie. If you can sell this to your significant other over that Josh Duhamel frightfest SAFE HAVEN, then you may pull off a win. Food for thought.

WARM BODIES starts the undead love on February 1, 2013.

Extra Tidbit: Do you think there are too many zombie movies or just enough? Has the genre peaked yet?

Looks great

The book is really good, and well written. People try to compare this to Twilight, but the fact is, the book is nothing like it, nor does the movie seem like it. I've actually let a few Twilight fans that I know borrow the book, and they can't even get past the 1st couple of chapters...I think it's at a higher reading level then Twilight haha.

Zombie Twilight is all I'm getting from this. In the poster the girl looks like Bella and the guy looks like a zombie version of Edward. Sorry I like my zombies eating people and getting blown in the head for doing such... not falling in love with the living. I mean seriously, WTF? It even sounds worse typing it in words.

Whoa, looks waaay better than I expected! Never thought I'd say it, but I'm *definitely* looking forward to this Zombie Romance movie....

And @Preston_79, Naah dude, Palmer is much more better looking than either of those two.....Heard has more sex appeal, but Palmer is just gorgeous!

Actually looks good.

You'd think putting Summit entertainment and monster romance together would be another bad idea, but this one actually has me interested. Rob Corddry as the comedy relief? I'm sold.

At first I was like

That Kristen Stewart? No, must be amber Heard. Wrong again, it's Teresa Palmer.

They all look so much alike to me.

I was all about to write this off as "zombie Twilight", but the humourous tone of the trailer is really interesting and refreshing...teen romances these days tend to take themselves way too seriously. Being from the director of 50/50, I think it will be a cut above your average teen romance. It doesn't look like my kind of thing, but it looks like it could be better than expected. And, of course, there's John Malkovich!

Cautiously Optimistic

For anyone still on the fence about this movie, I'd urge you to read the book -- it's a quick read and a very refreshing take on a generally tapped-out genre. The source material and the talent involved make me hopeful that the movie will be good, but I'm a bit nervous about the fact that they changed the protagonist from a middle-aged, suit-wearing businessman to a hipster, hoodie-wearing teenager. I'm worried that people will dismiss this as the "zombie Twilight" when it should be so much
