Warm Bodies Posters Online
Dead sexy

From the looks of everything we’ve seen so far (including the latest trailer you can watch again at the bottom of the page), the adaptation of Isaac Marion’s apocalyptic zom-rom-com novel Warm Bodies is set to give the romantic comedy genre a good tweak and breathe some life into zombie movies. Summit has put some new posters up for the film, which you can see in the gallery below.

Warm Bodies, directed by 50/50’s Jonathan Levine, finds zombie R (Nicholas Hoult) un-living in a world where the undead outnumber the living. He and his rotting contemporaries regularly raid the fugitive pockets of human survivors, lured by their warm, fleshy delights and focused on eating their brains.

But on one of the scouting missions, R meets and engages with Julie (Teresa Palmer) and something unusual happens: R starts to feel something. Could it be that his lingering humanity is starting to return as he tentatively tries to woo this woman? And what will the rest of his zombie brethren think, including best friend M (Rob Corddry)?

As R and Julie bond, the threats mount both from the freakish “Boney” zombies and from her father, General Grigio (John Malkovich), commander of the local human camp and a fervent believer in slaughtering any zombies that come near his compound.

Blending humour with horror, Warm Bodies promises plenty. We’ll see if it delivers on February 8.
