Warm Bodies Trailer [MOVIE]

Warm Bodies is the debut novel of author Isaac Marion. The book was described as a "zombie romance" by the Seattle Post Intelligencer, and makes allusions to William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. The author, based in Seattle, originally wrote a short story entitled "I am a Zombie filled with love" that attracted a wide internet audience. Atria Books, a division of Simon and Schuster, acquired the publishing rights to the full novel in early 2010. Watch Warm Bodies trailer here after the jump.

Warm Bodies Plot/ Synopsis

The narrator of Warm Bodies is a zombie inhabiting a post-apocalyptic America that has been destroyed by decades of wars and natural disasters, culminating in a mysterious zombie plague. The narrator has no memory of who he is and no understanding of what it means to be alive or undead, he has only the first letter of his name ("R) and a vague notion that something is not right with the world.

While eating a young man's brain and experiencing his memories, R encounters the man's girlfriend, Julie, and makes an unexpected choice to save her instead of killing her. He takes her back to the abandoned airport where the zombies congregate and hides her in a 747. While trying to decide what to do with her--and his slowly growing self-awareness--an unlikely relationship begins to develop, with unexpected consequences for the rest of the zombie horde.

Paste Magazine said, "Marion explores the meaning of humanity through R’s journey towards personhood, a tale that gets grander in scale as his empathy builds and the book’s true villains—cynicism, apathy and status quo—are revealed."
