The opening scene of Jonathan Levine's new romantic dramedy with a zombified twist is now online. In "Warm Bodies," Nicholas Hoult stars as "R" a brooding zombie that wanders amongst the living dead, when suddenly he meets a beautiful human survivor (Teresa Palmer) that magically makes his dead heart start beating again. In this first 4-minute opening scene, we see R roaming the aisles of a defunct airport wondering just who he was and who were some of his fellow zombies before the apocalypse.
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.
