Warm Bodies: New Poster

Entertainment Weekly has published a new poster for zombie flick Warm Bodies, starring Nicholas Hoult (X-Men: First Class) and Teresa Palmer, and directed by Jonathan Levine (50/50).

Although the film seems to be being marketed as some kind of zombie Twilight, SFX’s Ian Berriman has read the book and interviewed the producer,  and safely predicts that it will not be much like the Stephenie Meyer-based films in tone, but something more darkly comic and grisly.

Warm Bodies, based on the novel by Isaac Marion, is set during a zombie epidemic. Zombie R encounters Julie (a human survivor), and rescues her from a zombie attack. Julie sees that R is different from the other zombies, and as the two form a special relationship in their struggle for survival, R becomes increasingly more human – setting off an exciting, romantic, and often comical chain of events that begins to transform the other zombies and maybe even the whole lifeless world.

Warm Bodies is released in the UK on 8 February.
