More Of Those Clever ‘Warm Bodies’ Posters Show Brains

Warm Bodies

“There’s nothing hotter than a girl with brains.”

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.

The film’s Facebook page has been updated with a series of clever one-sheets that poke fun at the zombie genre.

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.

    Looks awful,just like every other zombie film in the past 10 years. How does shit like this get so easily made?

    I’m actually excited for the movie. I read the book last summer and was surprisingly pleased. It’s not going to be groundbreaking, but it’s just going to be a fun time at the theater.

    Ugh clever? These are puns!

    Isn’t parody the first sign that a trend is dying?

    I don’t know if I would call this a parody? It certainly doesn’t fit into any pre established Zombie universe rules, sure, but it’s different. Looks more clever than some of the other movies that have tried to cash in on “the other side of the story”. I’m in the middle of the book now, and even though it took a few pages to get hooked, it was well worth the effort.

    my only sadness here is that this movie pretty much means that “breathers: a love story” probably won’t ever see an adaptation. You want a great, clever “other side” that book is it.
