Whilst this upcoming film may have an array of stars, from Douglas Booth (Romeo and Juliet) to Matt Smith (Doctor Who), the one who steals the spotlight in this trailer has to be Lily James, who displays some seriously enviable zombie killing skills in the trailer for her new film Pride and Prejudice and Zombies – (Yes, someone decided that Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy needed a lot more excitement in their lives.)
After her performance in the newest adaptation of Cinderella, James has been on the receiving end of everyone’s high praises and now she’s back to charm us all again. In the trailer you’ll see elegant Balls, tight corsets and the desperate upkeep of social standards, but more importantly you’ll see zombies, lots of zombies.
The film will stick quite closely to the 2009 parody mash-up novel by Seth Grahame-Smith of the same title. Smith also wrote Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters, which has also seen as much success. Nonetheless, expect to see original elements of Jane Austen’s 1813 tale of Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy in this film, intertwined quite cleverly, with something very similar to AMC’s The Walking Dead.
