Pride and Prejudice and Zombies comes to theaters in February 2016 and we have some new images just released at San Diego Comic Con over the weekend. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is based on the 2009 parody novel by Seth Grahame-Smith featuring a genre mashup combining Jane Austen’s classic 1813 novel Pride and Prejudice with modern zombie fiction. The surprise hit novel spawned a sequel “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dreadfully Ever After” as well as a number of copy-cat novels.
A zombie outbreak has fallen upon the land in this reimagining of 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 Riley) 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 in order to conquer the undead once and for all.
