The First Pride and Prejudice and Zombies Trailer Finally Drops
"To succeed in polite society, a young woman must be many things: kind, well read, and accomplished. But to survive in the world as we know it, she'll need…other qualities."

The first trailer for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies has just dropped, and it's looking like it could turn out to be a whole lot of fun.



The film, which is adapted from the novel of the same name, is clearly a genre mashup/parody involving the Jane Austen classic 'Pride and Prejudice.' It will feature a cast of beloved actors such as Downtown Abbey's Lily James as Miss Elizabeth Bennet, Doctor Who's Matt Smith as Mr. Collins, and Sam Riley as Mr. Darcy.

Seth Grahame-Smith, the author of the novel that spawned this adaption, was also used as a screenwriter for the film. He is known for doing the screenplay on the adaption of his other novel, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. Fans of Grahame-Smith's might also find it interesting that he has evidently taken on the role of director now as well, and his big debut will be on DC Comics' 2018 film, The Flash.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies definitely looks like it has the potential to be really entertaining. However, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter received some pretty bad reviews by critics, and so there's still the possibility that Grahame-Smith's new film could end up flopping as well. Only time will tell, but fans of zombies, Jane Austen, or both will definitely want to catch Pride and Prejudice and Zombies when it premieres on February 5th, 2016.
