'Warm Bodies' Trailer: Zombies Need Loving Too

The zombie genre gets reinvented for the better. I consider myself a zombie purist. They are shuffling, rotting, undead husks. They don't run. They don't climb. And they don't roll on Shabbos. But can they love? Yes, apparently. That's the questioned asked in this trailer for Warm Bodies which seems like a charming and inventive addition to the genre. This does for zombies what Edward Scissorhands did for freaky scissor-handed people. It's not the groanworthy Twilight-ification that we all expected. Just total fun and has John Malkovich and an undead Rob Corddry in addition to Nicholas Hoult and Teresa Palmer in the lead roles of zombie and the girl who inspires his heart to beat again. Hate on it if you have to, but at least they aren't fast zombies.

Zombie Acting Tips with Rob Corddry

Zombie action is all the rage these days, and this week Hal was lucky enough to sit down with the cast of the new zombie comedy Warm Bodies, to talk about zombies and how Rob Corddry may be the Daniel Day-Lewis of zombie acting.... until Daniel Day-Lewis tries zombie acting. Thanks to cast and crew of #WarmBodies - Tweet the video! http-//brk.to/wbzm A funny new twist on a classic 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, and often comical chain of events that begins to transform the other zombies and maybe even the whole lifeless world. In theaters February 1.

Let The Bodies Hit The Floor: Sylvester Stallone Kill Count Supercut

Sylvester Stallone just killed a bunch of guys. This supercut compiles every time a screen villain has died by the hand of Sylvester Stallone. Coming in at a whopping 539 kills and clocking in at just over a half-hour, it proves that John Wick has no work ethic. Kids today. Of course, this count is by no means official and may be off by one or two. I'm pretty sure he kills someone in Oscar but can't expect anyone to sit through that movie in order to find out.


Jim Retires ‘Warm’ Apple Pie

Vigara and Warm Apple Pie... I knew the cast of American Pie had aged, but my god, Jason Biggs has really let himself go. In honor of the release of American Reunion, which hits theaters April 6th, we've put together this reenactment of the original film's most famous scene. Only instead of an awkward teenager going to town on an apple pie, there's an old man humping away on the titular dessert. I hope you like old-man ass, cause this clip's got it in spades. Bonus points for the extremely elderly Eugene Levy stand in.


'Fear The Walking Dead' Teases Its First Zombie

Unless it isn't. AMC is giving us another little nibble of Fear the Walking Dead. Unlike our first looks that showed us a man running for his life and a kid discussing the legitimacy of bloggers, this new look shows us what might be our first look at a walker. Or else just some drunk guy dressed as Raiden from Mortal Kombat. If it is in fact a walker, this is a really encouraging preview. In all the chatter about the show, nobody ever mentioned zombies wearing funny hats. That adds a whole new level that's been sorely missing from the original series.


More Bodies Hit The Floor In 'Sabotage' Trailer

Looks like 'Predator' with illegal aliens instead of space aliens. Though the hair and makeup departments didn't get the menu that this isn't a Limp Bizkit biopic, Sabotage looks fun. Arnold Schwarzenegger stars as the leader of a DEA task force whose team comes under fire after money is stolen from a huge cartel bust. This new trailer doesn't really give us anything more except Olivia Williams's really weird accent and the update that the cartel kidnap Schwarzenegger's wife and kid (naturally). Any film with silly, tough guy haircuts also has silly, tough guy nicknames, and online researched has revealed that Sabotage is no exception. Awww. At least give the Stripper a fun name too. Like Boobers or Crabwalk or something.


Bruce Campbell Sasses Living Dead at Zombie Con

The other week, Ted Raimi, brother of director Sam Raimi, beat us up, stole our Flip Cam, and flew to NYC to attend Zombie Con. He tooled around the convention floor, married some living dead lovers, and snapped some footage of Bruce Campbell interrogating a zombie. The other week, Ted Raimi, brother of director Sam Raimi, beat us up, stole our Flip Cam, and flew to NYC to attend Zombie Con. He tooled around the convention floor, married some living dead lovers, and snapped some footage of Bruce Campbell interrogating a zombie. She seems a bit flustered, and I don't think it's because her brains are rotted. Campbell has a way of messing with your head worse than any zombie could.


Zombie 'Call Of Duty' Gives "Brains" To George Romero

There are a lot of zombie video games out there, but few with Danny Trejo, Sarah Michelle Gellar and a killable George Romero. Check out the trailer. There are a lot of zombie video games out there. How do you differentiate yourself? You release a kickass, movie-esque viral trailer. Oh, that's already been done? Well... uh... it'll work again. Call Of Duty: Black Ops Escalation--Call of the Dead is an add-on that lets you play a zombie-killing game starring Danny Trejo, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Michael Rooke and Robert Englund. They released a fun, Grindhouse-style trailer above, complete with retro titles, film burn effect and a voice over that sounds right on the zombie money. George Romero stars as a zombie boss, which I guess is a nice homage to the genre creator, although... I dunno. It'd be like playing a Star Wars game where a main boss is George Lucas. Hilarious, but anti-climactic, cause it takes you out of the game. Still, there's the catharsis factor.
