Pride & Prejudice & Zombies Movie Release Date And Plot: An Apocalyptic Take On The Jane Austen Classic

By on

Who would?ve thought that Jane Austen?s classic work of literature ?Pride and Prejudice? would become more famous when it added zombies into the mix? Surprising as it may be, the rebirth of ?Pride and Prejudice? to become Seth Grahame-Smith?s ?Pride and Prejudice and Zombies? could pave way to an inevitable film adaptation. And since the release of the 2009 novel, new readers have opened up to the drama and zombie-killing action of the Bennet Sisters.

Back in October, Sony revealed its first official international trailer for ?Pride and Prejudice and Zombies,? but now they have dropped an even better teaser with brand new additions. You can check out the new trailer below:

Synopsis from Screenrant:

?Pride and Prejudice and Zombies? follows the tale of the original novel in that it focuses on the five Bennet sisters who live in 19th century England and are to be wed off to wealthy suitors. The difference, of course, is that this time around the trials and tribulations the women face involve not just love, but hordes of zombies that plague the English countryside. Thankfully for the Bennet sisters, their father has trained them to be highly skilled killing machines, explaining to a possible suitor quite bluntly that ?My daughters are trained for battle, sir ? not the kitchen.??

If anyone remembers, Seth Grahame-Smith had a previous novel that was adapted for the big screen titled ?Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.? Much like ?Pride and Prejudice and Zombies,? the plot was again from an alternate past. Unfortunately, the adaptation failed to get the attention of movie fans so we?re guessing that this movie could also bring in low numbers. In any case, we can always look forward to bad-ass women of the 19th century cutting off zombie heads while finding a way to fall in love with someone.

The film will be directed by Burr Steers with an up-and-coming cast which includes Lily James (Downton Abbey), Suki Waterhouse (Insurgent), Matt Smith (Doctor Who), and Sam Riley (Maleficent).

?Pride and Prejudice and Zombies? hit theaters on February 5, 2016.
