Watch the first 4 minutes of Warm Bodies

The first 4 minutes of tween-marketed “Warm Bodies”, starring Nicholas Hoult and Teresa Palmer as reanimated and beating-heart lovers, respectively, is online.

While not a big fan of watching the opening sequences, online, of upcoming movies, if only because I think it deters the ultimate enjoyment of going to see the film in the cinema, I understand how useful a marketing tool this might be, particularly as said peek may be able to entice those that wouldn’t have otherwise gone to see the film into laying down their hard-earned cash for a couple of tickets.

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.
