In a society where zombies are very real and very much taking over, can love really change the world? Well, what if the love was zombie-human? That's the predicament in 'Warm Bodies' after R (a zombie) saves Julie (a human) from a zombie attack. Their newly formed relationship could have the power to change the way the world works.
If this sounds like a no-brainer to you (badum-ching!), then you have to enter our 'Warm Bodies' DVD prize pack! Get More »
Who can resist this giant-slaying zombie mutant Beast?
Nicholas Hoult is becoming a household name in the realm of pop art with his comic-book turn as Hank McCoy/Beast in "X-Men: First Class," his YA turn as R. in "Warm Zombies" and his fairy tale turn as the title role in "Jack the Giant Slayer." Now it's our turn to show this up-and-coming hottie some NextMovie love.
You could plant some magic beans (what are you, crazy?) ... or you could get a'clickin' through our Nicholas Hoult gallery. We recommend that second choice there.
One of the (many) taglines for the upcoming zom-rom-com (that would be the new genre of zombie rom-coms that we hope is just beginning) "Warm Bodies" is "Cold Body, Warm Heart." That's exactly how we tried to approach this edition of Eff, Marry, Kill: Just as the human Julie (Teresa Palmer) learns to look past the grey-skinned zombie facade of R (Nicholas Hoult), we (our expert panel of Effemkayers) must learn to look beyond that handsome genetic Franco facade and ask ourselves the important questions: Who is he really? Does he had a warm heart? Is he kind?
Do we want to eff him?
We invite you to ask these same questions alongside us in this very special "Warm Bodies" edition of Eff, Marry, Kill, pitting Nicholas Hoult, Dave Franco and John Malkovich against one another for a place in our hearts, a place in our beds, and a place at the bottom of a cliff.
Onwards and effwards! Get More »
Playing a zombie in a major motion picture like the upcoming undead romcom "Warm Bodies" may seem like a walk in the park — or a shamble in the park, at the very least — but as this new Screen Junkies interview with funny guy Rob Corddry proves, there's a lot more to playing a zombie than just eating brains.
Though he did plenty of that too.
"De Niro, on 'Raging Bull,' would eat a whole chicken. Feathers and all," Corddry said, explaining the inspiration for his extreme method acting. "Every day, I would eat a real human brain."
"Also with feathers," he added. "Because feathers are delicious."
For more of Corddry's amazing zombie acting tips, as well as commentary from co-stars Nicholas Hoult, Teresa Palmer and Dave Franco, zombie-shuffle over to this cool clip right now!
"I'm lonely, I'm lost," Nicholas Hoult, as an angsty, undead young adult, laments. Then: "I'm literally lost. I've never been to this part of the airport before."
That's the tone of "Warm Bodies," the Jonathan Levine-directed zombie dramedy starring Nicholas Hoult and Teresa Palmer, slated for a Feb. 1 release, the first four minutes of which has hit the web courtesy of Fandango. Get More »
Fee-fi-fo — oh, you know how it goes.
Except the upcoming release "Jack the Giant Slayer" would like to argue that you don't. The retelling of the classic girl-meets-boy-meets-beanstalk story, directed by Bryan Singer and starring Nicholas Hoult as the titular giant slayer, features impressive digital effects, mad kings, near-castrations and even a swashbuckling Ewan McGregor leading an expedition to save a princess.

When the good guy in your movie is a zombie, coming up with a decent bad guy has got to be a pretty big challenge. But as the trailer for the offbeat zombie rom-com "Warm Bodies" shows, there's only one thing in Hollywood scarier than flesh-eating undead — and that's a live, scenery-eating John Malkovich.

With the possible exception of Zooey Deschanel, it's hard to imagine an actress playing "dream girl" with more charm than Teresa Palmer. With her appearances in "December Boys," "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" and "Take Me Home Tonight," Palmer is securing a role as one of Hollywood’s up-and-coming love interests, as much for her down-to-earth personality as her stunning good looks.
In her upcoming film “Warm Bodies,” Jonathan Levine puts her remarkable co-star chemistry to the ultimate test. Palmer plays a young woman who finds herself slowly getting involved romantically with... a zombie. Speaking to the actress in Park City, Utah at the Sundance Film Festival after the premiere of her new film "Wish You Were Here," she explained how she wrapped her head around portraying attraction to the undead.
