For those hankering for some genre fare in the heart of awards season, Summit Entertainment has released the first four minutes of director Jonathan Levine’s (50/50) zombie love story Warm Bodies online.  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).  This clip opens with a charming and funny voiceover from Hoult as we see R stumbling around an airport alongside countless other zombies, wondering what everyone used to be before they became undead.  Everything we’ve seen thus far promises an original take on what’s become a cliché-driven genre, and this clip highlights a few promisingly interesting visual cues from Levine.

Hit the jump to watch the first four minutes of the film.  The pic also stars John Malkovich, Rob Corddry, Dave Franco, and Analeigh TiptonWarm Bodies opens on February 1, 2013.

Here’s the official synopsis for Warm Bodies:

A funny new twist on a classic love story, WARM BODIES is a poignant tale about the power of human connection. After a zombie epidemic, R (a highly unusual zombie) encounters Julie (a human survivor), and rescues her from a zombie attack. Julie sees that R is different from the other zombies, and as the two form a special relationship in their struggle for survival, R becomes increasingly more human – setting off an exciting, romantic, and often comical chain of events that begins to transform the other zombies and maybe even the whole lifeless world.
