I dunno about the rest of y’all, but I for one am stoked for Jonathan Levine‘s rom-zom-com, Warm Bodies.
I’ll tell you, my 10 years of domestication and demasculation with Mrs. Nerd Bastards has had no influence on my girlish anticipation. This isn’t about having any misplaced love for Twilight, or having strong feminine sensibilities. This flicks corky, funny Zombieland humor is what got my attention. It’s a flick that doesn’t take itself seriously. No bullshit romances, or dorky metrosexual-creatures here. What you got is purely comical and satirical.
If you’re note on the bandwagon yet, then I implore you to check out the trailer. If, after viewing, you don’t agree we finally have a decent flesh-eating monsters with heart story, well… then I’ll just have to re-evaluate my manhood.
For the rest of you Warm Bodies fanatics, Summit Entertainment has released three clips and 13 minutes of B-roll for the film.
I haven’t watched the clips or the footage since I want to go in having seen as little of the movie as possible. I might finally be able to enjoy a rom-com with Mrs. Nerd Bastards without any per-conceived judgements, and thus, not be an asshole about it. I’ll possibly (and hopefully) have fun with this one.
Check out the clips and the B-roll. The film also stars Rob Corddry and John Malkovich.
Warm Bodies opens February 1st.

Here’s the official synopsis for Warm Bodies:
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.
