Warm Bodies Photos Show Us A Zombie In Love

Hot on the heels of the release of the first four minutes of the film, Summit has given us a few more stills from Warm Bodies, Jonathan Levine's feature adaptation of Isaac Marion's zombie novel. Set in the aftermath of a zombie apocalypse, Warm Bodies stars Nicholas Hoult as R, a zombie who falls for a living girl named Julie (Teresa Palmer.

It's an unlikely romance, but the the novel approaches it with humor, and from what we've seen in the trailers and the the four minute intro (opens in new tab), it seems Levine has taken a similar strategy with the film.

The photos ahead give us a look at Hoult as zombie R. The images themselves aren't particularly spoilery, unless you know what to look for, but I do mention some spoilers in the text that follows (particularly on page 2 of this article), so if you haven't read the book yet, read on with caution.

In this photo, it looks like Julie's walking with R and his fellow zombie M (Rob Corddry) at the airport (judging by the overturned luggage carts that can be seen).


And what better way to pass the time an airplane than with some hand-slapping fun?

Somehow, I can't imagine R's very good at any game that involves reflexes.

Unsurprisingly, R seems to have taken an interest in Julie's heart.

Two more pictures after the jump! And here he is showing the polaroid photo he took of Julie…

Here's where I make with the vague spoilers, for those who haven't read the book. Looking at the above photo, which has R showing the picture he took of Julie, presumably after their night together en route to the stadium (assuming the movie follows that part of the book), you can see that he's looking less zombie-ish. For some comparison, here's the fifth photo Summit released, which gives us a look at R's profile in what appears to be the scene where he first encounters Julie.

He's paler in the second photo, and you can see veins on his face and neck. Granted, we're seeing his other side, but my guess is the lack of veins is intentional and the image of R holding the photo shows us some visible signs that he's changing, due to the time he's spent getting to know Julie.

Warm Bodies arrives in theaters February 1. More information, photos and videos can be found in our Blend Film Database
