We were in the minority that thought the premise seemed silly when the first trailer premiered but see for yourself with this preview which gives a better sense of the overall tone. Based on the best seller by Isaac Marion, the film centers on Nicholas Hoult (“X-Men: First Class”) as the zombie R who falls in love with the very human Teresa Palmer and begins to turn back into a person because love heals all or something.
We’ll try to keep an open mind for the film, it certainly seems more inspired than the higher-budgeted “World War Z,” and it’s always was nice to see Rob Corddry, grunting or not. The film opens on February 1, 2013. Check out the opening scene below.
