Warm Bodies: New Trailers & Images - Zombie of the Week

Posted by Grey

Another awesome trailer has been released for director Jonathan Levine's adaptation of Isaac Marion's Warm Bodies along with a couple more promotional images from the film's Facebook page



Just last month, we were charmed by the first trailer of Warm Bodies,  the quirky zombie romance film. Less than a month later, Summit Entertainment has released the second trailer of director Jonathan Levine's adaptation of the début novel of the same name by author Isaac Marion. 

While we prefer the first trailer's quirky romantic vibe, the second trailer's notably emphasis on the action aspects of the zombie apocalypse is still pretty arresting. Hit the jump to check out the trailer (head over to Yahoo! to view it in HD).


And here's another new trailer.


   

The film's Facebook page isn't exactly sitting on the sideline as the marketing campaign continues. Here are a couple of the new promotional image from the film.


First up, a Thanksgiving special image.




A fan-made poster.


And here are some of the other images.












Here's the official synopsis of the film: 

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. 

An alternate synopsis for the film:

Zombies love people, especially their brains. But R (Nicholas Hoult) is different. He’s alive inside, unlike the hundreds of other grunting, drooling undead—all victims of a recent plague that drove the remaining survivors into a heavily guarded city. Now the Zombies roam about an airport terminal, searching for human prey and living in fear of the vicious Boneys, the next undead incarnation.

One day, R and his best friend M lumber toward the city in search of food. There, R first sets his eyes on JULIE (Teresa Palmer), a beautiful human. Determined to save her—first from the other Zombies and then from the Boneys—R hides her in his home, a cluttered 747 aircraft. Julie is terrified, and R’s grunted assurances of “Not…eat” do little to calm her. But when R begins to act more human than Zombie, coming to her defense, refusing to eat human flesh, and even speaking in full sentences, Julie realizes that R is special.

After a few close calls with the Boneys, and with her father mounting an armed search for her, Julie realizes she can’t hide forever. So she sneaks back home, leaving R broken-hearted. Desperate to see her, R decides to comb his hair, stand a little straighter, and impersonate a human long enough to get past the city guards. If only he can prove to the humans that Zombies can change, maybe R and Julie’s love might stand a chance. But with the rampaging Boneys heading toward the city and Julie’s father intent on killing R and his Zombie friends, the stage is set for an all-out battle between the living and the undead.

A genre-bending tale of love and transformation, WARM BODIES is a story about a boy who loves a girl…for more than just her body.



Warm Bodies is currently scheduled to release on February 1, 2013.


Don Cheadle’s Captain Planet Returns

Posted by Grey

Tremble in fear, my fellow Earthlings. For Don Cheadle’s Captain Planet is back and he's bigger, badder, and batshit crazier than ever before! 


Last year, the funny folks from Funny or Die featured a hilarious skit featuring Don Cheadle as an insanely intense Captain Planet obsessed in making mankind pay for their crimes against the planet. While the joke is somewhat one-note, to see Cheadle in such madcap comedy form was worth the entrance price. All else considered, the spoof probably killed any remaining hopes for a live-adaptation of the Captain Planet animated series.

And now, Don Cheadle is back in his role of the batshit-crazy Captain Planet as all the Planeteers fall together with all humanity. Hit the jump to check out the clip freshly released by Funny or Die.

Nevertheless, Last week was Thanksgiving and we have stumbled upon this nifty illustration depicting the Bat Family, including the Man of Steel himself, having a Thanksgiving meal, the Last Supper style.

Mass Effect: No One Left Behind

Posted by Grey

Not one of these 250 specially-commissioned posters were left behind. But we can still feast on the art of Chicago-based artist Courtney Biladeau to commemorate the end of BioWare's Mass Effect video game series. 



The conclusion to BioWare's critically acclaimed space-faring action RPG video game series, Mass Effect 3, was expectedly released to universal acclaim (discounting its poorly received and thus controversial ending). With fans of the series generally warming up to the Extended Cut of the conclusion,  BioWare has released yet another fans-pleasing product by commissioning Chicago-based artist Courtney Biladeau to conjure a new poster for the title.

Entitled "No One Left Behind", the 18x54 print, running on a limited edition of 250 at $40, has now understandably sold out. Nevertheless, hit the jump to check out the cool poster.

With fan-favourite characters mostly exclusive to Sony available in the title, fans can conjure their dream fight between God of War's Kratos and Devil May Cry's Dante (unfortunately, the new version), LittleBigPlanet's Sack Boy vs. PaRappa the Rapper, Bio Shock's Big Daddy vs. Metal Gear Rising's Raiden.

Without further ado, we take a walk down memory lane as we check out the trailers released for the title since its official announcement on GGTV this April. First up, we take a look at the freshly-released Launch Trailer entitled "Attract".

Rise of the Guardians: Final Preview

Posted by Grey

Santa Claus! Jack Frost! Easter Bunny! The Tooth Fairy! The Sandman! The greatest guardians of children all over the world assemble in RIse of the Guardians, the latest 3D computer animated film from DreamWork Animation. The Daily Zombies takes a final look at the animated film that has been winning rave reviews from the critics.



While many uninformed journalists have credited the origins of DreamWork Animation's latest 3D computer animated film, Rise of the Guardians to the box office-smashing success of Marvel Studios' The Avengers, we find that a most perturbing misinformation that we have address first and foremost: Rise of the Guardians is based on American author/illustrator William Joyce's The Guardian of Childhood book series as well as The Man in the Moon, a short film by Joyce in collaboration with Reel FX. For those unfamiliar with Joyce's works on children books, he was part of the crew behind the conceptual art and design of the original Toy Story, A Bug's Life, the writer-director behind the Academy Award-winning animated short film, "The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore", as well as the executive producer and writer of next year's animated feature film from 20th Century Fox, Epic. With that stellar credential, we believe we can stop harping over the film's connection to the might Avengers. After all, the only similarity is how a collective of established cultural and mythical icons in their own rights assembled to "protect the hopes, beliefs and imagination of children everywhere" against an evil force.

Directed by Peter Ramsey with a screenplay by David Lindsay-Abaire, Rise of the Guardians boasts a stellar cast of voice talents depicting the titular protagonists: The Guardians. But who exactly are The Guardians? They are the well-beloved holiday mascots and mythical figures deeply entrenched in the psyches of everyone, be it child or adult across the world in this age of globalization. They are North, or Santas Claus as we know it (Alec Baldwin), Bunnymund or the Easter Bunny (Hugh Jackman letting loose his Australian accent to the Australian anthromorph), Tooth, the Tooth Fairy (Isla Fisher), the Sandman (the quiet one who does not speak in the film), and latest recruit, Jack Frost, the spirit of Winter (Chris Pine). And the evil force we are talking about that requires the Guardians to rise to the occasion? Pitch, The bogeyman himself (Jude Law) in a quest to engulf the world in darkness and fear. One might be led to ponder what conventional villainy such a quest is and doubt if this is yet another animated films targeted at the lucrative children market during this festive season. While we totally agree that this is a fair assessment, we really must implore you to have a sampling of the film via the influx of trailers and clips released thus far. Yes, we thought it actually looked pretty awesome.

While we may never be able to figure out if Guillermo del Toro's creative consultant roles in the recent spate of DreamWorks animated films (from Megamind, Kung Fu Panda 2, Puss in Boots, to Rise of the Guardians) is the reason behind the notable improvement of their qualities, we have to put on the records that DreamWorks Animation has come a long way and has more than proven their weight in the considerably remunerative animation market. With their massive inputs in recent years, it appears that DreamWorks Animation has finally gotten the trick of the trade and the trailers of Rise of the Guardians is a staple example of that.  Apart from the lush animation and appropriately funny tone, the film looks set to be a children's film with a big heart and a sense of wonder and awe instead of the action-comedy one might expect.

Without further ado, hit the jump to check out the trailers for the film.

Here’s the synopsis for the film: 

RISE OF THE GUARDIANS is an epic and magical adventure that tells the story of Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy, the Sandman, and Jack Frost – legendary characters with previously unknown extraordinary abilities. When an evil spirit known as Pitch lays down the gauntlet to take over the world, the immortal Guardians must join forces to protect the hopes, beliefs and imagination of children everywhere.

Featuring the voices of Chris Pine, Alec Baldwin, Hugh Jackman, Isla Fisher and Jude Law, Rise of the Guardians was released on November 21 and is now available in theatres everywhere.
