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.
You’ll be able to see Pride and Prejudice and Zombies in UK theatres from February 12th 2016. Not soon enough!
