Screen Gems has released the first trailer for its upcoming literary parody, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, an adaptation of the literary classic by Jane Austen of the same name (except the ‘zombie’ part). You can watch the trailer in the embedded player below.
Written and directed by Burr Steers, and based on a book by Seth Grahame-Smith, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies tells the story of how a zombie outbreak has fallen upon the land in Jane Austen’s classic tale of the tangled relationships between lovers from different social classes in 19th century England. Feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet (Lily James) is a master of martial arts and weaponry and the handsome Mr. Darcy (Sam Reilly) is a fierce zombie killer, yet the epitome of upper class prejudice. As the zombie outbreak intensifies, they must swallow their pride and join forces on the blood-soaked battlefield.
The film stars Lily James, Sam Riley, Jack Huston, Bella Heathcote and Douglas Booth.
The film will be available in cinemas from February 5, 2016.
