'Warm Bodies' Trailer: Zombies Get Romantic In Upcoming Movie

Warm-Bodies

Romantic comedies often follow the same plot: boy meets girl, boy likes girl, conflict ensues, and finally, after much weeping and playing of Coldplay’s “Fix You,” love conquers all. Now, throw in zombies — what happens?

“Warm Bodies,” due out Feb. 1, 2013, is trailblazing an entire new genre of movies: the zombie romantic comedy. Based on a widely popular novel by Isaac Marion, the movie stars Nicholas Hoult as the main zombie, R, and Teresa Palmer as his very human love interest, Julie.

“What am I doing with my life? I just want to connect. Why can’t I connect with people?” Hoult questions himself in the trailer. “Oh right … it’s because I’m dead.”

Much of the country is inhabited by zombies and the living humans are fighting to protect themselves. R begins to fall for Julie which, as he is a dangerous zombie, is very problematic. As R connects with Julie, she starts to believe that the love is healing all of the zombies.

Directed by Jonathan Levine (“50/50”), the film also features John Malkovich as the father of Palmer’s character.
