Quirky, Fun and Charming (Yes, Charming) Trailer For ‘Warm Bodies’!

Warm Bodies - 4

Cold body. Warm heart.

In theaters February 1 from Summit Entertainment is Warm Bodies, a new kind of zombie film from All the Boys Love Mandy Lane director Jonathan Levine.

Starring Nicholas Hoult, Teresa Palmer, Rob Corddry, John Malkovich and Analeigh Tipton, “The story centers on an existentially tormented zombie who begins an unlikely friendship with the girlfriend of one of his victims and starts a chain reaction that will transform him and his fellow zombies.

We’ve landed the film’s official trailer, which is wonderfully fun and quirky. It’s a touch Zombieland, only it actually looks better (if that’s even possible). While some of you may scream “Twilight“, it looks anything but to me.

Watch for our report from the set in the coming months.

Zombies love people, especially their brains. But R (Nicholas Hoult) is different. He’s alive inside, unlike the hundreds of other grunting, drooling undead—all victims of a recent plague that drove the remaining survivors into a heavily guarded city. Now the Zombies roam about an airport terminal, searching for human prey and living in fear of the vicious Boneys, the next undead incarnation.

One day, R and his best friend M lumber toward the city in search of food. There, R first sets his eyes on JULIE (Teresa Palmer), a beautiful human. Determined to save her—first from the other Zombies and then from the Boneys—R hides her in his home, a cluttered 747 aircraft. Julie is terrified, and R’s grunted assurances of “Not…eat” do little to calm her. But when R begins to act more human than Zombie, coming to her defense, refusing to eat human flesh, and even speaking in full sentences, Julie realizes that R is special.

After a few close calls with the Boneys, and with her father mounting an armed search for her, Julie realizes she can’t hide forever. So she sneaks back home, leaving R broken-hearted. Desperate to see her, R decides to comb his hair, stand a little straighter, and impersonate a human long enough to get past the city guards. If only he can prove to the humans that Zombies can change, maybe R and Julie’s love might stand a chance. But with the rampaging Boneys heading toward the city and Julie’s father intent on killing R and his Zombie friends, the stage is set for an all-out battle between the living and the undead.

A genre-bending tale of love and transformation, WARM BODIES is a story about a boy who loves a girl…for more than just her body.

      Agreed on all aspects!!

  • M.a.r.y.

    There’s a spoiler in the trailer1

    • squint

      Yeah… that’s trailers now a days. I was doing so well with not watching any trailer, just seeing a movie based on a quick brief knowledge of what it’s about, who’s in it, maybe a picture or two.
      But for this movie I wasn’t sure if it’s something I’d see. So I figured I’ll give it a look. So I do want to see it, but now I know too much.

      I’m going back to my “no trailers” ways… I liked it like that.

  • djblack1313

    M.a.r.y. the part where he turns non-undead again? if so, yeah, i was kinda annoyed they gave that away.

  • Aaron Emery

    I’m surprised that I want to see this as I am completely burnt out on zombie flicks. But as one of the few proud owners of Mandy Lane on Blu I will support Jonathan Levine regardless.

  • Evil_Flip

    If this was made 10 years earlier I would’ve loved to see this.

  • Zombie-Killa

    Cool trailer! Rob Corddry is hilarious, and I’ve seen a few Teresa Palmer films, don’t anything about the lead guy, though.

    • http://www.facebook.com/abeirl Andrew B.

      the lead guy is quite good in the first 2 seasons of Skins (UK, not the MTV atrocity) and as Beast in X-Men: First Class

  • ThunderDragoon

    XD That actually looks really good. I was pleasantly surprised with it. I’ll probably watch it in theaters.

  • Eileen

    Looks… good!

  • xAshleyMariex

    How can i be the only one who thinks this looks fuckin stupid..

  • EvilHead1981

    I’m actually surprised. I knew nothing about it initially, and thought it might be Twilight with zombies. That actually looks hilarious.

    • SelfishMan912

      2nd.

    • evenscarier

      And 3rd’ed. I nearly skipped over this when I saw the picture of the zombie (he’s cute!), but I read over the comments I decided to give it a quick watch and really enjoyed it. Look forward to reading more about it!

  • K-Dogg

    I want to hate it, but damn I have to see this. There’s part of me that screams “you’re shitting on the zombie genre” , yet it’s refreshing as all hell. I’m in.

  • pyrepunk

    I think this is going to be great. Issac Marions book was pretty good and although it seems Twilight with zombies it’s not at least I don’t feel as though the book is and the trailer looks very similar to the book. Good funny zombie flick, so I’m in especially since I’m a fan of the novel.

  • WalkingDeadGuy

    What a great spin on the zombie genre. I’ll check it out.

  • BelaManiac

    Not going to lie but watching the first part of the trailer, I was thought this was going to be garbage but as soon as he told her to act dead, I couldn’t help but smile. I love the idea. It’s actually cute

  • Taboo

    Oh wow I’m surprised by how better this turned out to be. I was expecting some Twilight stuff with a zombie lol

  • http://www.facebook.com/msaez3 Manuel Saez

    I really liked the novel, as it attempted to do something different with the zombie genre. Hopefully, it wont turn out to be another “I Am Legend” (man, I hated that movie).

  • Darkness69

    I’m game!

  • Murdock408

    I was hating everything I heard and saw for this film because of the premise but now that I’ve seen the trailer my mind has definitely changed. It looks like a fun little teenage flick, not trying to change zombies or take itself seriously.

  • Red_QuEeN

    That was not what I was expecting and I’m glad. Can’t wait to see it.

  • viking1983

    looks pretty good, glad to see nicholas hoult finally took some acting lessons recently and stop playing annoying roles
