Summit Entertainment has released five new posters for director Jonathan Levine’s zombie love story Warm Bodies. 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). Both of the film’s two trailers have been really promising, and these posters play into the tongue-in-cheek tone that Levine seems to have adopted for the film. Though zombie movies/tv shows/books are a dime a dozen these days, Summit looks to have something special with Warm Bodies.
Hit the jump to check out the posters. The film also stars Rob Corddry, John Malkovich, Dave Franco, and Analeigh Tipton. Warm 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.
