Jonathan Levine’s Zombie Movie WARM BODIES Pushed Back to February 1, 2013

One of the projects I was most looking forward to this year was 50/50 director Jonathan Levine’s zombie love story Warm Bodies. The pic stars Nicholas Hoult as “R” a zombie who falls in love with Julie (Teresa Palmer) after he eats her boyfriend’s brains and absorbs his memories. Besides the intriguing love story aspect, the film also features a military revolt led by John Malkovich. The film was slated to open this August, but Summit has decided to push the release date back to February 1st, 2013, per Box Office Mojo.

It’s disappointing that we’ll have to wait longer for the film, but maybe a pre-Valentine’s Day release makes more sense given the romance aspect. Either way, I’m excited to see Levine’s next directorial effort as I thought 50/50 was one of the best films of last year. Warm Bodies currently has no competition on the February 1st date, but the Tom Cruise action pic One Shot hits theaters one week later. Hoult isn’t having the best luck with starring roles lately, as Warner Bros. recently pushed Bryan Singer‘s big-budget fantasy Jack the Giant Killer back to 2013 as well. Nevertheless, the guy’s poised to have a very good 2013.
