Today marks the release of the official Pride and Prejudice movie trailer from Lionsgate Films, and we have to say it's looking like a high-quality production! Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is a re imagining of Jane Austen's classic novel written by Seth Grahame-
Smith. It's the same story you know and love, with the added scare factor of hundreds of regency zombies and a fair bit of amended dialogue.
Jane Austen fans are divided on the franchise, but one thing's for certain - the release of the movie will bring Jane Austen back into the world spotlight. That's great news for the millennial generation, many of whom haven't read a Jane Austen book or seen an adaptation.
The release date is set for the 6th of February 2016 but with Halloween just around the corner, we're wondering if we'll be seeing the P&P&Z effect starting to make itself known this month. Are you dressing up in regency costume for Halloween? And if so, are you tempted to give the zombie look a whirl?
