Meanwhile, remember "Warm Bodies
"? Jonathan Levine
") 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
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]
