Try explaining this love bite to your friends and office colleagues. The very delayed Warm Bodies, best described as a zom rom com, has finally released a trailer (via Entertainment Tonight), defying expectations by actually looking pretty good. Publicity to date had us pegging this as “Twilight with zombies”, but this latest film from writer/director Jonathan Levine (50/50, All the Boys Love Mandy Lane) looks set to shuffle its way under your skin and devour you from the inside. With laughter.
Starring Nicholas Hoult, Teresa Palmer, Rob Corddry, John Malkovich, Analeigh Tipton, Dave Franco and Cory Hardrict, it follows an unusual zombie who has learned to love, and is slowly curing himself with this power. For those who think that The Walking Dead has become way too dark, here’s the antidote for the impending zombie apocalypse.
Warm Bodies is due for release in Australia on 11 April 2013 from Icon Film Distribution.
