This 'Warm Bodies' Poster is Hilarious

How this is classified as a horror/romance and not a comedy is beyond me, but everything about this just-revealed poster for Warm Bodies combined with the plot synopsis screams hilarious.

Here's the synopsis:

When a highly unusual zombie rescues a girl from imminent death at the hands of his cohorts, their unlikely romance sets in motion a chain of events that will transform him, his fellow dead and maybe even the whole lifeless world.

Now... the poster via MTV.

Warm Bodies poster

Me have cold body, warm heart, love girl. Braaaaaaaiiinnnns...

It is impossible for me to look at the slouch and face of Nicholas Hoult in that poster and not laugh out loud.

Unusual zombies... rescues a girl... changes the whole lifeless world. Now that is comedy. What does that even mean? We have sexy vampires now we're going to have sexy zombies? Does he sparkle? Is this real life?

Now do me a favor and add your own caption for the poster in the comments below.

    Nic Hoult: "Can we skip February 1st and go from January 30th to February 2nd?"

  • Susan

    Well, isn't it being done by Jon Levine, who did 50/50? Doesn't that hint at maybe a little something more?

  • Driver

    I'm sorry for the language, but this poster is a piece of shit, there isn't another way of putting it. Looks worse than twilight.

    • zwatcher

      Actually, i saw the trailer in theater at the beginning of twilight breaking dawn part 2 and it looks pretty interesting. i know it's being played as some kind of twilight like romance movie but it looks like it's a lot deeper then that. and it has some kickass special effects.

    Based on a book, which was pretty good and sad...

    I have a thing for good zombie books, though...

  • Josh

    I worry about the human race sometimes.

    This is from the director of 50/50, which gives me a lot of hope. I really don't this that this will be some Twilight-type movie. Maybe more along the lines of Zombieland, but with less action? Not sure.

    • Foggy

      Yeah, the director behind it at least gives me the idea that the producers wanted a Twilight rip-off and he's delivered a sly comedy of sorts. Like that poster cannot be for a serious film, it just can't be. If so, then Hollywood have gone mental.

    • Driver

      I didn't knew that, it gives me a lot of hope. The poster is still awful but this could turn out to be something at least interesting after all.

  • jay bob

    I would've thought the title of the movie was "Cold Body, Warm Heart, Warm Bodies", just from looking at that poster.

    I bring you the first two paragraphs of the book...

    "I am dead, but it’s not so bad. I’ve learned to live with it. I’m sorry I can’t properly introduce myself, but I don’t have a name any more. Hardly any of us do. We lose them like car keys, forget them like anniversaries. Mine might have started with an ‘R’, but that’s all I have now. It’s funny because back when I was alive, I was always forgetting other people’s names. My friend ‘M’ says the irony of being a zombie is that everything is funny, but you can’t smile, because your lips have rotted off.

    None of us are particularly attractive, but death has been kinder to me than some. I’m still in the early stages of decay. Just the grey skin, the unpleasant smell, the dark circles under my eyes. I could almost pass for a Living man in need of a vacation. Before I became a zombie I must have been a businessman, a banker or broker or some young temp learning the ropes, because I’m wearing fairly nice clothes. Black slacks, grey shirt, red tie. M makes fun of me sometimes. He points at my tie and tries to laugh, a choked, gurgling rumble deep in his gut. His clothes are holey jeans and a plain white T-shirt. The shirt is looking pretty macabre by now. He should have picked a darker colour. "

    Jonathan Levine is the director. Coming off of 50/50 and The Wackness, this sounds exactly like the kind of warm yet darkly comedic spin he puts on his films but we wouldn't classify those two as comedies would we?

    I don't know. I'm pretty excited. The cast is great and the people behind the camera seem right.

  • SeenSome

    Considering the director and the cast, it seems a bit quick to jump on this movie based on a potentially silly premise and a poster (which the people who made the movie will have nothing to do with).

    I know nothing of the source material but Jonathan Levine has a couple of good movies behind him and Nicolas Hoult is a very credible actor so I'm happy to give the benefit of the doubt until its release.
