Opening in theaters on February 1st is the new romantic-zombie-comedy from writer/director Jonathan Levine (50/50) entitled Warm Bodies. The film was based on the popular novel of the same name by author Isaac Marion, which was loosely based on William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. The film stars a terrific cast of up and coming young actors and veteran performers including Nicholas Hoult (X-Men: First Class), Teresa Palmer (Take Me Home Tonight), Dave Franco (21 Jump Street), Analeigh Tipton (Damsels in Distress), Rob Corddry (Seeking a Friend for the End of the World), and Academy Award-nominee John Malkovich (In the Line of Fire). 

IAR's Managing Editor Jami Philbrick recently had a chance to sit down with Nicholas Hoult to talk about his work on Warm Bodies, as well as the highly anticipated upcoming sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past. The talented young actor discussed his new film, showing the zombie apocalypse from the zombie point of view, creating his zombie walk, why his character is a hoarder, balancing the movie's unique blend of action, comedy and drama, X-Men: Days of Future Past, when he begins shooting, the fact that he hasn't seen the script yet, if he will look at the classic Chris Claremont and John Byrne comic book first, his excitement to hear that original X-Men actors Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellen, and Patrick Stewart will be along for the ride, and reuniting with his Jack the Giant Slayer director Bryan Singer on the new project.
