Nicholas Hoult stars in a new trailer for zombie rom com Warm Bodies.
Set in post-apocalytic America with a zombie hero, this upbeat film turns the boy meets girl format on it’s head. Based on a novel of the same name by Isaac Marion, Warm Bodies is the story of R. R is a zombie who spends his days moaning and wandering around with little recollection of what it was like to be human – as well as eating human brains so he can experience their memories.
But after a chance encounter with Julie, played by Austrailian actress Teresa Palmer, he falls in love and their relationship begins to change the zombies’ world forever…
Directed by Jonathan Levine – who worked on cult hit 50/50 – and starring John Malkovich, Rob Corddry and Dave Franco, the film is due for release in the UK on 8 February 2013.
