Pride and Prejudice and Zombies – Trailer
Pride and Prejudice is a beloved novel, one that has been brought to the silver screen many times over, however, it always lacked a certain something that would make it absolutely perfect. You guessed it! Zombies!
The movie, featuring Lily James as Elizabeth Bennet, Sam Riley as Mr. Darcy, Lena Headey as Catherine De Bourgh, Charles Dance as Mr. Bennet, Matt Smith as Mr. Collins, Douglas Booth as Mr. Bingley to name a few brings to life a novel written in the same spirit as Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter (it is the same author, after all – Seth Grahame-Smith). It’s one of those situation where it’s exactly what it says on the tin: you have your classic literature characters fighting zombies like they landed from The Walking Dead. Except they are British so they do it with a stiff upper lip and while attending balls, because they are civilised, damn it!. Anything else and Jane Austen would turn in her grave, right?!
The movie will hit theatres on February 11, of this year, in just time to cash in on all the love…Jane Austen love, of course. I am definitely going to check it out, will you?
