See poor dead Nicholas Hoult (“X-Men: First Class”) get a start to his living dead days in this zombie romantic comedy.
Hoult plays “R,” a zombie who finds love even after his brain has stopped functioning. It’s from “50/50” director Jonathan Levine. And let us all take the time to bow our heads for his “All The Boys Love Mandy Lane,” which never got around to getting released here in the U.S.
Here’s the official synopsis:
A funny new twist on a classic love story, WARM BODIES is a poignant tale about the power of human connection. After a zombie epidemic, R (a highly unusual zombie) encounters Julie (a human survivor), and rescues her from a zombie attack. Julie sees that R is different from the other zombies, and as the two form a special relationship in their struggle for survival, R becomes increasingly more human – setting off an exciting, romantic, and often comical chain of events that begins to transform the other zombies and maybe even the whole lifeless world.
