Zombie movies have almost been done to death (har har), but here’s something a little bit different. Today, the first teaser was released for the upcoming film Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. Based on the book by Seth Grahame-Smith that’s based on the novel by Jane Austen, the movie will feature the Bennet sisters taking no prisoners as they fight back against a horde of zombies. And in corsets to boot. Women fighting zombies has been a pretty popular feminist theme lately, and Elizabeth Bennet was already a character wise to patriarchal bullshit, so hopefully the film will channel this subversive spirit.

There’s also been a poster released bearing a quote from Smith’s book that reads “It is a truth universally acknowledged that a zombie in possession of brains must be in want of more brains.” The film stars Lily James as Elizabeth Bennet and is Directed by Burr Steers. Co-stars include Bella Heathcote, Lena Headey, Matt Smith, Douglas Booth and Sam Riley.
