First trailer for zombie romance Warm Bodies: watch now

Warm Bodies has released a first trailer online, starring Nicholas Hoult as a shambling, flesh-munching zombie with a heart.

Hoult plays R, a zombie who finds himself beginning to feel alive again inside after falling in love with Julie (Teresa Palmer), the girlfriend of one of his victims.

Turns out R has taken on some of the feelings of said boyfriend (having eaten him… yep, that’s how it works), and now wants to impress her by turning his back on his zombieish ways.

Take a look, below…

It’s an interesting concept, and played here with no little warmth by Hoult and Palmer. Plus, there’s stellar support to be enjoyed from the likes of Robb Corddry, John Malkovich and Analeigh Tipton.

Directed by Jonathan Levine and co-starring Dave Franco, Warm Bodies will open in the UK on 8 February 2013. A traditional love story, it isn’t…
