New Trailer for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Trained for Battle, Not the Kitchen
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies combines two of our favorite things: classic literature and zombies, and if this new trailer is any indication, the silly, genre-bending Victorian sci-fi mash-up won't disappoint.



Lily James stars in this zombie and explosion-infused version of Jane Austen's classic novel, as the iconic heroine Elizabeth Bennett, while Doctor Who's Matt Smith co-stars as the simpering adversary Mr. Collins, Sam Riley plays Mr. Darcy, and Game of Thrones's Charles Dance plays the long-suffering Mr. Bennett. It probably won't satisfy die-hard Jane Austen fans, but it seems well-acted and entertaining, and at least seems to retain Austen's proto-feminism, commentary on Victorian culture, and adversarial love story between Elizabeth and Darcy.

The official synopsis for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies reads:

Opening quote
PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES is a fresh twist on Jane Austen's widely celebrated novel. 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.
Closing quote


Pride and Prejudice and Zombies opens in theaters on February 5, 2016.
