Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion is one of the few zombie books that I enjoy reading. Well actually, I listened from an audio book but still same results, it is fun and enjoyable novel. So when I found out that there will be a film adaptation coming out next year I can’t help but get excited. The movie is planned to be release next February 1, 2013 and it stars Nicholas Hoult and Teresa Palmer. Basically the story is about a zombie (Nicholas) who rescues a human girl (Teresa) from an attack and ends up falling in love with her.
The film adaptation is directed by Jonathan Levine, the same man behind the movie “50/50“. Which is really an amazing film. I enjoyed it so much even it makes me cry. It is just raw and real and of course it stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt and any film that has Joseph Gordon-Levitt for me is a must watch. I’m a fan obviously. I can’t help but be amazed with his so many talents, from acting, to singing, composing, writing and directing. Anyway, before I get totally lost and rave more about Joseph Gordon-Levitt let’s go back to Warm Bodies. I’m expecting another fun and heart warming film from Jonathan Levine in this movie. The trailer is already out and I think it is pretty good. It makes me more excited to see the film. You can watch it below.
As for the film poster there are two version that already comes out. The first one comes out early this year and when I first saw it, I honestly didn’t like it because it reminds me of Twilight. Check the poster below so you can see it yourself why it reminds me of Twilight. The second and latest poster, the one with a red background is much preferable than the first one. But it doesn’t tell much about the stories. I’m still hoping that there will be another poster coming out before the film is release, something that will match with the dark and comedic part of the story.

Have you read the book? What do you think of the trailer? Does the new poster make your heart warm? 🙂 If you haven’t read the book, I urge you to do so. You can also join me as I plan to do a re-read before the movie comes out. We still got a couple of months.
