After an eternity in pre-production, with an endless series of directors and actors coming and going, and the whole thing looking like it was going to be abandoned at several points, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is finally on its way.
The first UK trailer and poster have now arrived, which you can see above and below.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘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.’
Lily James and Sam Riley play Elizabeth Bennett and Mr. Darcy, with Bella Heathcote, Jack Huston, Douglas Booth, Matt Smith, Charles Dance, and Lena Headey also starring.
The film will be released by Lionsgate UK in cinemas across the UK & Ireland on Friday 12th February 2016.
