Warm Bodies looks like it’s going to be a lot of fun. Sure, we have plenty of zombie-centric stuff out there (World War Z, TV’s Walking Dead) and there have been plentiful light-hearted takes on the shuffling undead too (Shaun, Zombieland), but if the trailers are anything to go by (and they seldom are these days) this has a tone and approach all its own.
You can catch up on the trailers for Warm Bodies here, along with our previous posts on the other publicity malarkey doing the rounds and you should – trying to balance genuine zombie threat with laughs and perhaps some heartfelt romance is no mean feat.
John Malkovich seems to be enjoying himself and Nicholas Hoult has been showing real charisma and presence since growing up from About A Boy.
IMP (who else?) have the latest poster, which we’ve lovingly embedded below. Ain’t it sweet, in a non-descript, photo-shopped kinda way?
Warm Bodies is out on 1st February 2013 and a week later in the UK. Could make an ace Valentine’s double bill with Die Hard 5.
