Yes, Warm Bodies was produced by Summit Entertainment — but that doesn’t mean this paranormal romance, an adaptation of Isaac Marion’s novel, is just a Twilight mad lib that trades vampires for zombies. Warm Bodies is a horror comedy, with an accent on the comedy — think Shaun of the Dead or Zombieland, two films to which it seems to owe a debt of gratitude.
The flick stars Nicholas Hoult (X-Men: First Class) as R, a reanimated teen who’s slowly shuffling through unlife until he meets Julie (I Am Number Four‘s Teresa Palmer), a blond hottie who also happens to be an accomplished zombie fighter. Sparks fly, and soon R begins to feel reanimated. Could love be the cure for zombification?
Check out the movie’s second trailer — featuring a truly excellent sight gag involving an evolution poster — below. Warm Bodies debuts in theaters February, making it a godsend for quirky guys and girls who are looking for the perfect Valentine’s Day date.
