Zombies are hitting the big screen.
Warm Bodies — which writer-director Jonathan Levine adapted from Isaac Marion‘s young-adult novel — is a romantic comedy about an unusual romance between the living and walking dead. Nicholas Hoult, who plays a zombie called R, falls for a teenage girl named Julie (Teresa Palmer). Through their new relationship, R starts to feel very human emotions.
Other films playing this weekend include Bullet to the Head, starring Sylvester Stallone, and Fisher Stevens‘ Stand Up Guys, with Al Pacino, Christopher Walken and Alan Arkin.
