Not all upcoming zombie movies have to take a serious tone, and we believe horror comedy has its place in the world. For this reason, we’re excited for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, which just had its first trailer hit the web yesterday.
The movie is, of course, based on the book of the same name by Seth Grahame-Smith, which is a parody of Jane Austen’s literary classic Pride and Prejudice. It follows the tale of tangled relationships between lovers from different social classes in 19th century England, and what happens after a wave of zombies invades.
The Pride and Prejudice and Zombies cast includes Lily James, Game of Thrones‘ Lena Headey, and Doctor Who‘s Matt Smith. The release date has been slated for February 5, 2016 — just in time for the perfect Valentine’s Day date. You can watch the first Pride and Prejudice and Zombies trailer below to get a feel for what we’re in store for.
