The first official trailer of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, the upcoming period zombie comedy movie directed by Burr Steers and starring Lily James and Sam Riley, has been unleashed online, watch it below:
PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES
“The film is is a fresh twist on Jane Austen’s widely celebrated novel. A mysterious plague has fallen upon 19th century England, the land is overrun with the undead and feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet (Lily James) is a master of martial arts and weaponry. Casting aside personal and social prejudices, Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy (Sam Riley) must unite on the blood-soaked battlefield to rid the country of the zombie menace and discover their true love for one another.”
There’s also a first movie poster:
Based on the best-selling novel by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith
Judging from the trailer the movie adaptation won’t be as exciting as the novel it’s based on. But well, there are still zombies. So I’ll go see the film anyway, lol!
Besides Lily James and Sam Riley, the cast also includes Bella Heathcote, Lena Headey, Douglas Booth, Jack Huston, Matt Smith, Charles Dance, Suki Waterhouse, Ellie Bamber, Millie Brady, Jess Radomska, Emma Greenwell, and Aisling Loftus.
The film will open in theaters on February 5, 2016.
