We recently saw a new trailer for Summit Entertainment’s upcoming zombie love story Warm Bodies, and now a couple of new images from the film have been released. Directed by Jonathan Levine (50/50), 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). I’m really digging the balance of humor and romance that was displayed in the film’s two trailers, and these new images highlight some of the more amusing sight gags from the pic. Levine showed a great deal of talent with 50/50, and Warm Bodies looks to be a lot of fun. Here’s hoping the full film delivers the goods.
Hit the jump to check out the new images and to rewatch the latest trailer. The film also stars Rob Corddry, John Malkovich, Dave Franco, and Analeigh Tipton. Warm Bodies opens on February 1, 2013.
First off, here’s the latest trailer in case you missed it:

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.
