This is the first poster for Warm Bodies. It is based on the novel by Isaac Marion that deals with zombies and a certain, odd love story develops. I have read the book and this is not Twilight and it never will be. There was some concern that Warm Bodies would be marketed as a Twilight-ish film since Summit Entertainment is also releasing it. An early promotional poster is what started all that talk. Today, Isaac Marion through the Warm Bodies book fan page released the first poster.
The film stars Nicholas Hoult, Teresa Palmer, John Malkovich, Analeigh Tipton, Dave Franco, Lizzy Caplan, Cory Hardrict, and Rob Coddry. Jonathan Levine wrote the screenplay and directed the film.
This is the book synopsis:
“R is a man with an existential crisis—he is a zombie. He shuffles through an America destroyed by war, social collapse, and the mindless hunger of his undead comrades, but he craves something more than blood and brains. He can speak just a few grunted syllables, but his inner life is deep, full of wonder and longing. He has no memories, no identity, and no pulse, but he has dreams.
After experiencing a teenage boy’s memories while consuming his brain, R makes an unexpected choice that begins a tense, awkward, and strangely sweet relationship with the victim’s human girlfriend. Julie is a blast of color in the dreary and gray landscape that surrounds R. His decision to protect her will transform not only R but also his fellow Dead, and perhaps their whole lifeless world. Scary, funny, and surprisingly poignant, Warm Bodies is about being alive, being dead, and the blurry line in between.”
Warm Bodies is in theatres February 1, 2013. Looking forward to the first trailer.
