Genuinely Weird Zombie Romance in First Trailer for ‘Warm Bodies’ With Nicholas Hoult
With the end of ‘Twilight’ fast approaching this coming weekend, there’ll be a big gaping hole in the market for an inappropriate teen romance and Warm Bodies, starring Nicholas Hoult and Teresa Palmer, looks keen to fill it. This is the first proper look we’ve had at the movie and, as suspected, it looks truly bizarre. Hoult stars as the undead half of the pairing who falls in love with a human and slowly starts to regain his humanity.
With the guilt-ridden monster and quirky best friend, we can’t quite work out whether this is a parody of supernatural teen romance plots or just liberally taking ideas from its predecessors, but the truth will come out on February 1, 2013 (just in time for Valentine’s Day).
