The first trailer for writer/director Jonathan Levine's zombie love story, Warm Bodies, has been released, and you know what? It looks a lot better than I thought it would! It's got a fun vibe to it that I think is kind of cool. Looks like Levin pulled off a supernatural love story that will be worth watching. I actually laughed a couple of times while watching the trailer.
The film is an adaptation of a novel written by Isaac Marion, and the story follows an "existentially-tormented zombie (Nicholas Hoult) named R that begins an unlikely friendship with the human girlfriend of one of his victims. The blossoming relationship starts a chain reaction that will transform him, his fellow zombies and maybe the whole lifeless world."
The movie also stars Teresa Palmer, John Malkovich, Analeigh Tipton, Dave Franco, and Rob Corddry. It's set to be released on February 1st, 2013. Watch the trailer for yourself and let us know if you think it looks good!
Here's an international traile from dmagianet:
Here's the Synopsis:

Directed by Jonathan Levine (50/50), the film stars Nicholas Hoult (Hank McCoy/Beast in the 2011 film X-Men: First Class) and Teresa Palmer (I Am Number Four).

R (Hoult) is a zombie. After a zombie apocalypse, he shambles across an America filled with collapsed buildings, rusted cars, shattered windows, and abandoned high-rises. He can only grunt or moan and craves human brains to get high on their memories. After eating the brains of a suicidal teen, R is overcome with love for the teen’s companion, Julie Grigio (Palmer). R rescues Julie from his zombie pack and takes her back to his lair. She eventually leaves, and R follows her back to Citi Stadium, the largest remaining human refuge.
