We’ve seen plenty from the film already to convince us it should be excellent – most recently with a handful of new posters, and the latest trailer arriving last month – and with its release just over a month away, Fandango have debuted the opening 4 minutes to raise your anticipation.
“When a highly unusual zombie rescues a girl from imminent death at the hands of his cohorts, their unlikely romance sets in motion a chain of events that will transform him, his fellow dead and maybe even the whole lifeless world.”
Nicholas Hoult (X-Men: First Class) and Teresa Palmer (Wish You Were Here) head a great cast, joined by the awesome Analeigh Tipton (Crazy, Stupid, Love.), Dave Franco (21 Jump Street), Rob Corddry (Children’s Hospital), and John Malkovich (Being John Malkovich).
Jonathan Levine (50/50) is at the helm, directing from his own script, having adapted the original novel by Isaac Marion.
Levine has directed two of the finest films in recent memory in 50/50 and The Wackness, and I can’t wait to see what he’ll be bringing us next year.
Warm Bodies will be released in the US on 1st February, 2013, with its UK release date set slightly later on 8th February. To whet your appetites, here’s the opening four minutes, to let you dip a toe in the water. Enjoy.
