When Luke, the Head-NerdBastard in charge, asked me to do a post about the new trailer for director Jonathan Levine‘s Warm Bodies, based on the book of the same name by first time author Isaac Marion, he said, “Feel free to make fun of it as hard as you want.” So that was exactly the attitude I went with as I started watching. I mean really, a Zombie love story, is this gonna be Twilight with Zombies?

Something happened while I watched and listened to the inner dialogue going on in R’s ( That’s what the zombie’s name is listed as in IMDB) head. Maybe it was the musical selection, or the actually funny dialogue and scenes. By the time I finished the trailer I was checking the release date and the book cost over at Amazons.

Take a look and let me know if I’m right or do I need to do a weekend zombie movie marathon to cleanse my Zombie palate.

Warm Bodies stars Teresa Palmer as Julie, Nicholas Hoult as R, Dave Franco as Perry Kelvin, John Malkovich as General Grigio, Analeigh Tipton as Nora, Cory Hardrict as Kevin, and Rob Corddry as M. The movie shambles onto theater screens February 1st, 2013.

  • Looks terrible.

  • Dead Man Walking

    The nice thing abut this is that ‘Warm Bodies’ ins’ttrying to shove all that angst and bullshit Twilight has down your throat. They’ve adapted a love story to be a bit more light-hearted and funny while keeping that tension of drama. For once I’ll go watch something with having to shield my eyes from the excessive glitter and pale skin, and that’s from just the fan girls..

  • Its stupid absurd and yet… If its consistently as funny or more then the trailer, then its worth the dramatic suspension of disbelief being asked of it’s audience. Most of us are already comfortable with the fantasy of reanimated corpses, so why not take that comfort a step forward and say that love, which changes us all, can change a zombie? Anyway, I’m down for this flick. Heres hoping its entertaining.
