Y’know, over the course of the past few years writing for Flixist, I’ve gravitated more towards ‘avoid trailers ’til I get to see them on the big screen.’ Since I work for a sizeable theater chain, I typically see an average of two movies a week, which means I see a lot of trailers. Because of this, a trailer I haven’t seen before usually gets me pretty jazzed. In the case of Warm Bodies, I saw the poster long before I saw the trailer. Given the context of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part Two: The Final Chapter: It All Ends Here: Probably coming soon (at the time), I groaned and figured it’d be an even creepier teen girl flick about an average teen girl pursued by an undead guy, likely based on a Young Adult book. Having written it off as trash I would see four weeks after it premiers in a disguise so nobody recognizes me, I made no effort to find out any more about it.
Then I saw the trailer. As soon as it ended, I took back ever bad thing I had to say and am now counting the days until I get to see the midnight showing. February 1st feels like an eternity away, but Collider has delivered unto the unwashed masses five new posters to whet their appetites.
