Meanwhile, remember "Warm Bodies"? Jonathan Levine's ("50/50") zombie romance was originally slated to hit theaters next week, but was moved to an early 2013 release date and not much has been heard since. It's a bit curious that it had zero presence at Comic-Con, who you would think would be the perfect audience for the film. And it hasn't been announced for the TIFF Midnight Madness lineup either, which also seemed like a no-brainer, no pun intended. Maybe Fantastic Fest? Either way, Summit/Lionsgate will need to start marketing this thing soon as it comes out in about five months.
Until then, a couple of admittedly low-res images have hit of Nicholas Hoult in the brain-eating lead role. Based on a book by Isaac Maron of the same name, the story follows a male zombie (Hoult) who starts a dangerous relationship with one of his victim’s girlfriends, played by Teresa Palmer. Interesting concept, but the lack of buzz is definitely a worry. "Warm Bodies" opens on February 1st. [Kinopoisk]
