Before feasting on that Thanksgiving turkey, Lionsgate wants you to remember Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, where the only feasting going on is the undead munching on brains. A new trailer and poster have been released for the horror mash-up based on Seth Grahame-Smith's book parodying the Jane Austen classic.
There's a lot of new footage here, but the constant seems to be that director Burr Steers is playing the material straight-up rather than going for comedy. The film stars Lily James, Bella Heathcote, Sukie Waterhouse, Ellie Bamber, and Millie Brady as the beautiful Bennet sisters, only in this version they're renowned martial artists and zombie killers. Otherwise the story plays out exactly as Austen planned it, including the sisters' relationships with the men in their lives played by Matt Smith, Sam Riley, Douglas Booth, and Jack Huston.
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies opens February 5th 2016.
