Last month, we showed you a few pictures from the set of Summit Entertainment’s zombie movie of a different flavor, Warm Bodies, based on Isaac Marion’s book of the same name. Now, the studio has announced a premiere date for the big-screen adaptation.
Save the date! Mark August 10, 2012 on your calendars for Warm Bodies to premiere.
Warm Bodies stars Nicholas Hoult (X-Men: First Class, About A Boy), Teresa Palmer (I Am Number Four, Sorcerer’s Apprentice), Rob Corddry (Hot Tub Time Machine, Childrens Hospital), Dave Franco (Fright Night, Superbad), Analeigh Tipton (Hung, Green Hornet), and Cory Hardrict (Battle Los Angeles, Tia and Tamara). The film is directed by Jonathan Levine (50/50, The Wackness).
Book synopsis of Warm Bodies:
R is a young man with an existential crisis–he is a zombie. He shuffles through an America destroyed by war, social collapse, and the mindless hunger of his undead comrades, but he craves something more than blood and brains. He can speak just a few grunted syllables, but his inner life is deep, full of wonder and longing. He has no memories, no identity, and no pulse, but he has dreams.
After experiencing a teenage boy’s memories while consuming his brain, R makes an unexpected choice that begins a tense, awkward, and strangely sweet relationship with the victim’s human girlfriend. Julie is a blast of color in the otherwise dreary and gray landscape that surrounds R. His decision to protect her will transform not only R, but his fellow Dead, and perhaps their whole lifeless world.
Scary, funny, and surprisingly poignant, Warm Bodies is about being alive, being dead, and the blurry line in between.
Warm Bodies is slated to hit theaters on August 10, 2012.
