Director Jonathan Levine is such an interesting talent. He’s made great films, like The Wackness and All the Boys Love Mandy Lane and the most recent 50/50. I’ve pegged him as someone to keep an eye on, because everything he does is so authentically approached and fun.
His upcoming film Warm Bodies sounds like a cash in on the zombie craze, with the mix of a little Twilight-styled romance, starring Nicholas Hoult and Teresa Palmer. When I first read the synopsis I almost cringed, but then I reminded myself who was directing it.
Sean posted the first trailer and of course it totally blew my expectations away and it actually looks like something that could be a change of pace for the tired genre.
The new poster up above (via EW) is a great piece of marketing that helps sell the bizarre angle the film is taking, while also focusing on the zombies.
I’m looking forward to Warm Bodies, which hits on February 1st, 2013.
