The teaser for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies gave the Grue-crew just enough to trash the upcoming adaptation on episode 132 of Horror News Radio – well, except for Doc, but we all know how that plays out. This week Sony Pictures tries to win us over once again with its “Official Trailer” for the ghoul-filled re-imagining of the Jane Austin classic. We get more examples of the gals in action, wielding and swinging their swords, dispatching zombies left and right. We get a tease of Matt Smith in the mix of it all. And we get…well…more zombies. Does this trailer tempt the lean more in Doc’s camp or seal its fate to live forever in Thomas’ pit of doomed films? Pride and Prejudice and Zombies opens in the U.S. on February 5, 2016. Burr Steers directs with a cast that includes Lily James, Lena Headey, Matt Smith, Douglas Booth, Jack Huston, Sam Riley, Suki Waterhouse, Charles Dance, Bella Heathcote and Hermoine Corfield.
Jane Austen’s classic tale of the tangled relationships between lovers from different social classes in 19th century England is faced with a new challenge — an army of undead zombies.
