Summit Entertainment has released three clips and 13 minutes of B-roll for Jonathan Levine‘s rom-zom-com, Warm Bodies.  The film centers on R (Nicholas Hoult), a zombie who falls in love with Julie (Teresa Palmer) after eating her boyfriend’s brains.  I haven’t watched the clips or the footage since I want to go in having seen as little of the movie as possible.  Warm Bodies is one of my most-anticipated movies of the next three months, and I want to be surprised.  However, if you still need to be sold on the flick, then you might want to see the new material.

Welcome to 2013, folks. If you’re reading this it means that you survived the Mayan Apocalypse, the first Dick Clark-less New Year’s Rockin’ Eve celebration in like four decades, likely some sort of mandatory holiday time with your extended family, and incessant political jabber about some sort of “fiscal cliff”, all in a matter of about two weeks. Congratulations on a job well done. In spite of all these accomplishments, though, odds are you still haven’t spent any part of 2013 hanging out with Arnold Schwarzenegger and his tank. So, to this point, our Dave Trumbore still wins 2013.

All tank envy aside, let’s keep our heads up and focus on the first Top 5 installment of the new year. This week’s recap includes Brendan’s editorial plea for giving 48fps the old college try, Justice League rumors, Matt’s Warm Bodies set visit and ensuing zombie transformation, news of Jay-Z being brought on to score Baz Luhrmann‘s The Great Gatsby, and the results of our first ever readers poll that asked for your top movies of 2012. Brief recaps and links to all of the above are dying for your attention after the jump.

Matt Visits the Set of WARM BODIES and Gets Turned into a Zombie

Being undead isn’t so bad.  Your clothes are filthy, you could probably do with a little more sun, and the quality of conversation is somewhat diminished, but I didn’t mind being a zombie for a day.  I was given this opportunity when Summit Entertainment decided to fly me up to Montreal to the set of Warm Bodies, the new film from director Jonathan Levine (50/50).  The film follows R (Nicholas Hoult), a zombie who falls in love with the non-zombie Julie (Teresa Palmer) after eating her boyfriend’s brains.

I’ve been on a few set visits, but for Warm Bodies, Summit invited me and my fellow movie journalists to be zombie extras.  In addition to interviewing Levine, Hoult, Palmer, co-star Rob Corddry, and producer Bruna Papandrea, we got to go through the zombification process without the nasty biting-and-dying part.  Hit the jump to read about my visit to the set of Warm Bodies.

A new trailer for director Jonathan Levine’s (50/50) zombie love story Warm Bodies has been released.  The film stars Nicholas Hoult as a zombie named “R” who starts to act more human than zombie when he falls in love with Julie (Teresa Palmer).  The film’s excellent first trailer played up the quirky love story angle, and this new trailer is a bit more action-oriented.  Levine looks to have struck a nice balance between the film’s light-hearted “indie” sensibilities and the more visually arresting zombie apocalypse premise, and we see bits of promising new footage with this 60-second trailer.
