New Movies: ‘Warm Bodies,’ ‘Bullet to the Head’ and ‘Stand Up Guys’
It’s Super Bowl weekend, traditionally not a huge one at theaters, but this weekend sees three new films all going for different audiences. One is a supernatural-teen tale reminiscent of ‘Twilight,’ the next brings a longtime action star in for another round, and the last is crime story featuring three very fine actors.
Following a worldwide zombie epidemic, one young zombie meets a pretty high school girl and slowly starts to become more and more human. Could this be the cure?
