Unlike the slightly spoiler-y full-length trailer that debuted last month, this TV spot is shorter and much more of a tease for the film based on Isaac Marion’s book about a zombie named “R” and his improbable love affair with a girl named Julie. We’ve got R’s deadpan internal monologue, John Malkovich delivering jokes in his trademark condescending lilt (“They are not, becoming, VEGAN!”), and a keener focus on the romantic angles as R tries to reclaim his humanity and keep Julie (played by Teresa Palmer) safe.
And yes, even in that dirty red hoodie and with little peeling flaps of necrotic skin around his mouth, Nicholas Hoult is still a serious hottie: dead or alive. All that’s left is to cool our heels and wait for winter: “Warm Bodies” hits theaters February 1!
