Whoever said zombies and Jane Austen don’t go together, didn’t know what they were talking about because the first UK teaser trailer for Pride And Prejudice And Zombies has landed online and it’s awesome.Starring Lily James as Elizabeth Bennet, the teaser starts off like any other Jane Austen adaptation filled with curtseys, ball gowns and dashing gentlemen before a rather gruesome zombie makes an appearance. Cue kick-ass women in formal wear!
Watch the teaser trailer below…
With an arsenal to rival John Wick and impeccable table manners to boot, you certainly don’t want to mess with this family, zombies or otherwise.
A gory new teaser poster has been released along with the trailer, featuring a rather graphic look at the undead the Bennets will be facing. Based on Seth Grahame-Smith’s book cover, the poster also features a rather telling quote from the novel: “It is a truth universally acknowledged that a zombie in possession of brains must be in want of more brains.” We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.
Directed by Burr Steers and co-starring Bella Heathcote, Lena Headey, Matt Smith, Douglas Booth and Sam Riley, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies will hit the US on February 5 2016 and the UK on February 12 2016.
