The Holidays Have All But Shut Down Hollywood, So Let’s Just Watch the First Four Minutes of ‘Warm Bodies’

Warm Bodies

The week between Christmas and New Year’s is a notorious dead zone in Hollywood Newsland, but like a moaning, grasping zombie, we here at Film School Rejects are determined to rise above it with fresh content. Mmm, delicious fresh content, arrrggghhh, brainnns.

Where were we? Right! Fresh content! Content like the first four minutes of Jonathan Levine‘s upcoming Warm Bodies.The Nicholas Hoult-starring zombie comedy (zom-com) puts a on sweet twist on the horror movie trope, with Hoult’s “R” struggling to be a young zombie in a undead-filled world. He just wants to connect to people! But, of course, that’s hard to do when you’re a zombie and most “people” aren’t really people anymore. That all changes when he meets a red-blooded young lady, but before we get to that, let’s get to know a little bit about R’s day-to-day life (or something like it).

After the break, check out the first four minutes of Warm Bodies, thanks to Fandango. Let’s snuggle.

Warm Bodies opens on February 1st. [Fandango]
