'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies' Trailer Delivers on Title at Least

In development since at least 2009, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is exactly what it sounds like: Pride and Prejudice, but now with a zombie addition that seemed at least a little more original six years ago. It's the exhausting mash-up brain-child of author Seth Grahame-Smith, who has since parlayed this earlier success into adapting his own Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (naturally) for screens and, most recently, taking on writing and directing duties for Warner's The Flash. Here, though, Igby Goes Down and 17 Again's Burr Steers writes and directs, Lily James, Sam Riley, Bella Heathcote, Charles Dance, Lena Headey, Matt Smith, and Suki Waterhouse star, and Jane Austen would roll over in her grave would that not lend living-dead legitimacy to this ever-so-briefly amusing conceit.

Here's the trailer:
