Warm Bodies is an upcoming film based on the novel with the same name by Isaac Marion. The story revolves around a young zombie boy who fell in love with a living girl, and how that alter the post-apocalyptic world they’re living in. The film stars Teresa Palmer (I Am Number Four) as the girl and Nicholas Hoult as the zombie, and Hank McCoy (from X-Men: First Class). The film is being billed as both romance and comedy.
Sure, we had seen human fell in love with a vampire and a werewolf but a zombie? Why and how could it possibly happen? Many will probably laugh or hate the idea of making this film but they already done it. Yes, they have done movies like this before like “The Revenant” and “Deadheads”. But this specific film will be marketed more to young generation, given the fact that it was based on a Young Adult novel. Many teens will watch it for sure. It is truly bizarre and disturbing. A zombie loves a human being, not in a way that he wants to chew her brains but in a way that he would betray his fellow zombies just to protect her? They might find it as an interesting concept but will the audience like it? Well, it’s up to us. We will see and find out. But please I don’t want to see a zombie and a girl make love (have sex)! That’s very unacceptable and disgusting! I may allow them to kiss but that’s all. I doubt they will actually considered that. Anyway, this film originally intended to be in theaters on August this year (2012) but they moved it on February of next year (2013). Maybe because they don’t want to compete on the final film in the Twilight Saga. Summit Entertainment is also behind the creation of this movie so there’s no really surprise. They really want to invest on movies like this. They like to try weird and ludicrous ideas. What can I say, anything is possible in Hollywood. What else that we haven’t see yet?
