‘Warm Bodies’ Movie Poster With Nicholas Hoult Shamelessly Targets Young Audience
When compared to other supernatural-romance movies arriving this year and next, female-friendly zombie flick Warm Bodies has been given the cold shoulder in terms of exposure. Ever since ‘Twilight’ brought young tween fans to their cinemas, studios have been scrambling around for something to duplicate that success. Now, Summit and ’50/50′ director Jonathan Levine are hoping ‘Warm Bodies’ can work these miracles, with this first poster making no apologies for its fairly skewed marketing.
The poster recalls the cover to a paperback novel rather than a massive blockbuster fantasy/horror/romance, but the jury’s still out on what the film’s exact tone will be. We know there’ll be zombies, and we know there’ll be romance, but not if the combination will work. Look out for the film on February 1, 2013.
