Warm Bodies looks like it could be the perfect date movie. Zombies for people who like the undead. Romance for people who like sweet love stories. And it looks darn funny, too.
Here’s the scoop: After a zombie becomes involved with the girlfriend of one of his victims, their romance sets in motion a sequence of events that might transform the entire lifeless world. As in, make them human and undead again.
It’s directed by Jonathan Levine, who looks like he’s about 15, but has directed The Wackness and 50/50, among others. And stars Nicholas Hoult, Teresa Palmer, Dave Franco, Analeigh Tipton, John Malkovich and Rob Corddry.
Warm Bodies is rated PG-13 for zombie violence and some language, and hits theaters Feb. 1, 2013. It’s from Summit Entertainment (hmmm … are zombies the new vampires?). Watch the first four minutes below.
