The first trailer for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, the film adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith’s horror mash-up adaptation of Jane Austen’s classic novel, is here and it’s exactly what you hoped it would be.
Starting the trailer as a straight adaptation then surprise! zombies! is such a perfect way to advertise the film, and honestly, the only way to do it right.
Writer/director Burr Steers (Igby Goes Down, 17 Again) had the enviable?/unenviable? task of turning the frankly ridiculous novel into a movie and it looks like he succeeded in bringing the batshit. The film stars Lily James (Downton Abbey, Cinderella), Lena Headley (Game of Thrones, Dredd) and Matt Smith (Doctor Who) along with an equally strage and eclectic cast.
