Of Zombies and Men: Two New 'Warm Bodies' Clips

With less than two weeks until the movie's domestic release and plenty of people still in need of convincing that Warm Bodies is not the Twilight of zombie movies, Summit Entertainment has released two new quick clips, both of which showcase the romantic horror-comedy's supporting cast.

Specifically, these clips highlight Analeigh Tipton and John Malkovich.

Based on the novel by Isaac Marion, Warm Bodies takes place in a future overrun with zombies.  R, played by Nicholas Hoult, is a sensitive, existentially tortured zombie trapped in a decaying body and mind.  When he runs into Teresa Palmer as the human Julie, R's heart starts beating again.  Slowly but surely, love brings the humanity back to R, and when this begins spreading throughout the hordes of shuffling zombies, the world might just change for the better.

Once Julie and R are aware of R's increasing humanity, they've got to convince everyone else that something special is going on.  That's where these clips, here courtesy of CinemaBlend, come in.  In the first, Julie's best friend Nora, played by Tipton, notes all the odd aspects of R's character.  In the second, Julie attempts to convince her father, Malkovich as General Grigio, that the undead are no longer what they seem.

Tipton came to the attention of most audiences with her supporting performance as the Steve Carrell-obsessed Jessica in Crazy, Stupid, Love., but she's also shown up in The Green Hornet and on the HBO series Hung.  Malkovich is Malkovich, a two-time Academy Award nominee and stylish oddity.  You know, Malkovich.

These two are part of a cast that also includes comedically proven Rob Corddry and Dave Franco.

Jonathan Levine, the director of The Wackness, 50/50, and the somehow still-unreleased All the Boys Love Mandy Lane, wrote and directed Warm Bodies.  Basically, Levine is really good, and Warm Bodies represents a stretch for him, so it might just be special.

We'll see when the movie hits theaters nationwide on February 1st.  Oh, and if you missed it last month, the opening four minutes of Warm Bodies are available to view online, and you can see them by clicking here.
