'Warm Bodies' Trailer Asks if Maybe Zombies Just Need a Little Love


Offering a more light-hearted look at the zombie apocalypse than the one found bundled in Brad Pitt's kerchief, here's the trailer for 50/50 director Jonathan Levine's zombie-comedy-romance Warm Bodies. The film stars Nicholas Hoult as a fleshy zombie--a distinct caste above the untouchable skeletal zombies--who begins to rediscover his former humanity by way of, essentially, posthumous horniness, his death erection pointing him toward a wrong-side-of-the-tracks affair with the lovely, still-living Teresa Palmer. Can their love, like the zombie plague itself, spread, and somehow turn the walking dead into the LOVING DEAD, with symbolically-glowing E.T. heartbeats? Spoiler: yeah, it sort of looks like it.
