Zombie rom-com starring Nicholas Hoult (X-Men: First Class) as a bummed-out living dead who falls for the living girlfriend of one of his victims. Also stars John Malkovich, Rob Corddry and Dave Franco. From the director of 50/50, based on the debut novel by Isaac Marion.
Zombies dominate the planet after a worldwide epidemic, as chronicled by undead narrator 'R' (Hoult) whose inner monologue is thankfully more articulate than his outward grunting vocabulary. When R encounters human Julie (Teresa Palmer) and rescues her from an attack, he forms a unique connection with her - a relationship that has the potential to transform an almost lifeless world. But first R will have to win Julie over with his rather limited zombie dating abilities, as well as gain the approval of her father Grigio (Malkovich), leader of a heavily fortified outpost of human survivors. Then there are the vicious undead known as "bonies" to worry about.
