Trending Trailer: Pride And Prejudice And Zombies

  • by: Maarten Schenk

Some people say any movie can be made better with zombies. Director Burr Steers is probably one of them. He's taking Jane Austen's classic novel 'Pride And Prejudice' about relationships in 19th century England, giving it a zombie twist.

The synopsis for the movie reads:

PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES is a fresh twist on Jane Austen's widely celebrated novel. A mysterious plague has fallen upon 19th century England, the land is overrun with the undead and feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet is a master of martial arts and weaponry. Casting aside personal and social prejudices, Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy must unite on the blood-soaked battlefield to rid the country of the zombie menace and discover their true love for one another.

Sounds like it could be fun, but we'll have to wait until February 2016 before it comes out. In the mean time, enjoy the trailer that was released today.
