This is a pandemic. We are watching the beginning of a new sci-fi trend. Years ago ‘Twilight‘ stated the start of a vampire trend. Movies, tv shows, novels, comics and fashion took the “vampire theme” for a new market wave.
The days of “the zombie trend” are here. With Tv shows like “The Walking Dead“, movies like “Resident Evil” and newcomer “World War Z” let Hollywood keep feeding on the undead.
“Warm Bodies” is a romantic comedy about a zombie named “R” who falls for the girlfriend of one of his victims. The traditional and repeated story about the love between different worlds. Zombie “R” is portrayed by British promise Nicholas Hoult, remembered for his main role in UK teen serie Skins. The confused girl in love of a zombie is portrayed by Teresa Palmer, well known for been “Number 6″ in “I am Number 4″.
Analeigh Tipton, who almost win ‘America’s Next Top Model’ season 11 hosted by supermodel Tyra Banks, is also a part of this rom-com. She plays Teresa Palmer best friend, and becomes her remote piece of conscience regarding her new necro relationship.
This cast counts with the exquisite performance and participation of Academy Award Nominee, John Malkovich. The actor was in the middle of an opera tour with his play “The Giacomo Variations”.
