Warm Bodies - Trailer
Director Jonathan LevineYear 2013Genre(s) Horror, Suspense
A young male zombie spends his days roaming the barren and devastated wasteland that is America with limited thoughts and actions, only able to remember that his name while he was human began with the letter 'R' and only yearning to eat the brains of the few remaining living humans just so he can connect and learn to feel alive again. It's a post-apocalyptic world where a huge proportion of the population have been infected by a plague turning them into forever wandering, blood thirsty, undead creatures; some still have a little human left inside them, while others (known as Boneys) are skeletal creatures devoted to eating anything and everything with a heartbeat. After 'R' and his dead associates are set upon by a gang of humans with guns, he finds himself feasting on the brain of a man and absorbing his memories and feelings. When he catches the eye of the man's girlfriend Julie, he is overcome with the bizarre feeling to protect her and takes her away to the abandoned airport to hide her. When the other zombies see them together, the emotions are set off throughout the lot of them and they and the survivors all find themselves banding together to fight the Boneys who still remain emotionless and highly dangerous.
Directed and written by Jonathan Levine ('50/50', 'The Wackness'), 'Warm Bodies' is about a zombie nation being cured by the powerful thing that is love. It is based on the novel of the same name by Isaac Marion and is set to hit cinemas in the run up to Valentine's Day on February 8th 2013.
