New Pride and Prejudice and Zombies poster debuts online
Sony’s Screen Gems has revealed a new poster for the long-awaited literary parody Pride and Prejudice and Zombies featuring just a few more swords and rotten bodies than in Jane Austen’s original text. Check out the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies poster in the gallery below!
A zombie outbreak has fallen upon the land in Jane Austen’s classic tale of the tangled relationships between lovers from different social classes in 19th century England. Feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet (Lily James) is a master of martial arts and weaponry and the handsome Mr. Darcy (Sam Reilly) is a fierce zombie killer, yet the epitome of upper class prejudice. As the zombie outbreak intensifies, they must swallow their pride and join forces on the blood-soaked battlefield.
Written and directed by Burr Steers (Igby Goes Down), Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is based on the book by Seth Grahame-Smith and stars Lily James (Cinderella), Sam Riley (Control), Jack Huston (American Hustle), Bella Heathcote (Dark Shadows), Douglas Booth (Jupiter Ascending), Matt Smith (“Doctor Who”), Charles Dance (“Game of Thrones”) and Lena Headey (300).
Screen Gems will release the film just in time for a bloody Valentine’s Day on February 5, 2016.
