The first trailer for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, the upcoming film based on the Seth Grahame-Smith novel of the same name, has been released.
Watch the trailer, which is the UK version, here below. The U.S. version, which likely won’t be much different, is scheduled to be released very soon.
The story, based on the horror mash-up from Quirk Books, is a take on Jane Austen’s Regency classic Pride and Prejudice, centering on the Bennett sisters — Elizabeth (Lily James), Lydia (Ellie Bamber), Mary (Millie Brady), Jane (Bella Heathcote), and Kitty (Suki Waterhouse).
While the young sisters were taught from an early age the etiquette of being a lady in polite society, and the importance of obtaining a suitable husband, they were also trained in art of zombie killing. That’s right, the English countryside is crawling with the undead, and the Bennett family are the most badass zombie whackers in the land.
Game Of Thrones star Lena Headey will appear in the movie as a “famed eye-patch-sporting warrior,” while her GoT co-star Charles Dance (Tywin Lannister) plays the family patriarch.
Directed by Burr Steers, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, which also stars Sam Riley, Jack Huston, Douglas Booth, and Doctor Who‘s Matt Smith, opens in theaters on February 5, 2016.
It is a truth universally acknowledged that a zombie in possession of brains must be in want of more brains. PPZ is in theaters February 2016.
