Sony Pictures just debuted a new trailer for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, the action horror film that combines Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice with the world of zombies. The film is based on Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith’s novel and was adapted for the screen and directed by Burr Steers. Heading to theaters on February 5, 2016, the cast of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies includes Lily James, Sam Riley, Bella Heathcote, Douglas Booth, Lena Headey, Matt Smith, Jack Huston, and Charles Dance.

The Plot:

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.
