FANDANGO PREMIERES TODAY THE FIRST FOUR MINUTES OF UPCOMING COMEDY, “WARM BODIES”
on December 27, 2012
Fandango today exclusively debuts the first four minutes of the upcoming zombie comedy, "Warm Bodies." Fans can sneak a peek at the extended clip at fandango.com/warmbodies.
Directed by Jonathan Levine ("50/50"), the new Summit Entertainment film stars Nicholas Hoult ("About a Boy," "X-Men First Class," Bryan Singer's "Jack the Giant Slayer"), Teresa Palmer ("The Sorcerer's Apprentice"), Rob Corddry and John Malkovich and opens just before Valentine's Day on February 1, 2013. Once they have watched the clip, fans of the film are encouraged to sign up for a Fandango FanAlert to receive news once tickets become available for purchase.
Fandango set a news sales record on Christmas Day (Tuesday, December 25, 2012) for its best-ever single day ticket sales in the company's 12-year history. Its previous top-selling day was on May 4, 2012, the opening day of "The Avengers."
The "Warm Bodies" debut is the latest example of exclusive content premiering on Fandango. Earlier this year, The Weinstein Company debuted the teaser trailer for Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained" on the nation's leading moviegoer destination. Also featured on Fandango is the new original series, "The Frontrunners," where chief correspondent Dave Karger gives film fans the inside track on all things awards and interviews the top Oscar contenders, including Hugh Jackman, Amy Adams and Ben Affleck. Fans can find the new series at fandango.com/thefrontrunners.
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.
"Warm Bodies" opens in theaters February 1.
