First Look At PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES
I can’t believe it, but the first official look at the film adaptation of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is here! I remember when the book was announced. I was so ecstatic that I bought it almost immediately when it was released. Now it’s time for the movie. Some may think this is a bad thing, but I see it only as a positive thing. Jane Austen + zombies? Count me in.
Synopsis of the book:
So begins Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, an expanded edition of the beloved Jane Austen novel featuring all-new scenes of bone-crunching zombie mayhem. As our story opens, a mysterious plague has fallen upon the quiet English village of Meryton—and the dead are returning to life! Feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet is determined to wipe out the zombie menace, but she’s soon distracted by the arrival of the haughty and arrogant Mr. Darcy. What ensues is a delightful comedy of manners with plenty of civilized sparring between the two young lovers—and even more violent sparring on the blood-soaked battlefield. Can Elizabeth vanquish the spawn of Satan? And overcome the social prejudices of the class-conscious landed gentry? Complete with romance, heartbreak, swordfights, cannibalism, and thousands of rotting corpses, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies transforms a masterpiece of world literature into something you’d actually want to read.
