The Most Adorable Zombie Ever: Check out the first Warm Bodies trailer!

Trailer FrenzyA special place to find the newest trailers for movies and TV shows you're craving.

Yesterday, we witnessed the zombie apocalypse in full-on Hollywood tentpole style, with the World War Z trailer. So today, here's a chance of pace — the genuinely sweet-looking zombie romance Warm Bodies, in which X-Men First Class's Nicholas Hoult is R, a zombie with a heart of... well, heart. It's based on the novel by Isaac Marion, and the trailer has a lot more genuine laughs and tenderness than I was expecting. Yay for Rob Corddry zombie action!

Here's the 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.

This looks awesome. Great humor, in the style of "Shaun of the Dead" and "Cockneys vs. Zombies", but more interesting. Not sure about the Bonies concept. After awhile, a totally dead zombie would start falling apart and cease to be threat (something that should be happening in the "Walking Dead" series). Bonies shouldn't exist unless magic is involved, creating Revanant creatures. I totally love the idea that the infected (which would not be dead, otherwise they couldn't move due to lack of oxygen-rich blood flow keeping the muscles, brain and heart functioning, staving off rigormortis), can cure themselves by mentally fighting off the disease. Definitely brings a new plot element to the whole zombie franchise.
