Nicholas Hoult stars as a lovesick zombie that, literally, has a change of heart in this new 60-second trailer for Jonathan Levine's upcoming horror-comedy "Warm Bodies." The clip does a nice job of showing more of scene-stealer John Malkovich as the anti-zombie zealot who believes these "corpses" are incapable of remorse.
But what happens when one zombie (Hoult) actually starts showing signs of human emotions and begins to have feelings for Malkovich's daughter (Teresa Palmer)? Well, we're not sure, but it looks like it's going to be a lot of fun! The movie, which is based on a novel by Isaac Marion, opens in theaters on February 1st.
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.
