There’s a short new trailer for Warm Bodies, the zombie romantic comedy from director Jonathan Levine (50/50, The Wackness), starring Nicholas Hoult as a zombie who falls for a human girl (Teresa Palmer). It’s the classic wrong side of the tracks romantic setup, complete with the girl’s father (John Malkovich) being a guy who is opposed — really, violently opposed — to the idea of their relationship.
Malkovich gets a bit more play in this trailer, which, despite being only one minute long, is probably more effective than the first longer spot for the film was. Read More »

John Malkovich is in final talks to join the zombie romance Warm Bodies, directed by Jonathan Levine (50/50). Based on the novel by Isaac Marion, the film stars Nicholas Hoult as an angsty zombie named R who strikes up a friendship with the human girlfriend of one of his victims and sets off a chain of events that eventually affects all of zombie society. On the surface, it sounds like a pretty typical supernatural love story, but I’ve heard very good things about the book, so I’ve got high hopes that it won’t just be another Twilight.
Teresa Palmer and Rob Corddry are also set to star, as the human love interest and another zombie undergoing an existential crisis, respectively. Malkovich will be playing the villainous “General Grigio, who’s obsessed with the destruction of the zombie threat.” Oh, and he’s also Julie’s father. How awkward. [Variety]
After the jump, Gwyneth Paltrow and Abigail Breslin sign on for two different sex comedies. Yes, that Abigail Breslin. Yes, we’re getting old.

And now we’ve got an image to cover each one of those bases for the third film. Check ‘em out after the break. And, sorry, no robots. Read More »
