If you’re already rolling your eyes at another “zombies + wacky setting” movie, it might be worth it to pause for a moment. “Pride And Prejudice And Zombies” once had none other than David O. Russell attached to direct. So perhaps there’s a bit more substance between the ears of this one? Well, a new trailer for the Burr Steers (“Igby Goes Down,” “17 Again“) helmed version is making the case.
Lily James, Sam Riley, Bella Heathcote, Charles Dance, Lena Headey, Matt Smith, Suki Waterhouse, Emma Greenwell, Aisling Loftus, Douglas Booth and Jack Huston get into period garb for this wacky take on Jane Austen, based on the book by Seth Grahame-Smith (“Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter”) that sees the world of Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy overrun by the undead, following the black plague.
Does this combination of corsets and carnage make you intrigued. Pack up some tea and crumpets and see the movie on February 5, 2016.
