Here’s the first look at the film adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith’s bestselling horror parody novel Pride and Prejudice and Zombies
Directed by Burr Steers, the film pitches Jane Austen’s celebrated charaters against world of the undead.
The plot outline says: “A mysterious plague has fallen upon 19th century England, the land is overrun with the undead and feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet is a master of martial arts and weaponry. Casting aside personal and social prejudices, Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy must unite on the blood-soaked battlefield to rid the country of the zombie menace and discover their true love for one another.”
I absolutely hated having to study the original Pride & Prejudice at school so I’m not entirely sure of the film. While it is always fun to see zombies in everything, the trailer doesn’t look that funny. I hope it isn’t a one joke film. Having said that though, it has great cast and the sets, costumes, effects, etc, look fantastic. Also, I loved the film Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter (2012), from the same author, so this Pride and Prejudice might be okay. We’ll just have to wait and see.
Pride an Prejudice and Zombies will be released by Lionsgate UK in cinemas across the UK & Ireland on 12 Feburary 2016.
