A zombie romance for Valentine’s Day: Warm Bodies

Nicholas Hoult as R in Warm Bodies, out February 8, 2013.

A zombie romance may not be for everybody, but Warm Bodies is definitely something I would go and see pre-Valentine’s Day.

The movie, starring Nicholas Hoult and Teresa Palmer was to be released in August but was pushed back by Summit to February 8, 2013.

The movie, based on a novel by Isaac Marion,  is about R (Hoult), a victim of a recent plague leaving those infected undead drooling bodies. He lives in an airport terminal trying to ‘survive’ on human flesh with his best friend M (Rob Corddry), when they go out looking for food they get ambushed and after R eats the brains of one of his victims something strange happens.

R starts to feel again inheriting the memories of the brain he ate and falls in love with the victims girlfriend Julie (Palmer). He strives to protect her from his fellow zombies and the scary Boneys, and slowly starts to become human-like again.

From the trailer it looks like the consequence of R falling in love may infect the other undeads and it could be a cure of the plague that spread. As Julie sneaks away from R to return home so his father would know she is safe, R is heartbroken and goes in search of her disguising himself as a human as long as possible to see his new love.

Throw in John Malkovich as General Grigio and Julie’s father, hot newcomer Analeigh Tipton (of ANTM fame and Crazy, Stupid, Love) and  the not as famous Franco brother (but hotter) Dave Franco and you’ve got a definite hit.
