Lionsgate Film UK has released 20 great pictures from the brand new film, Pride, and Prejudice and Zombies featuring ex-Time Lord Matt Smith, ahead of its release in UK cinemas on the 11th February.
The film is an adaptation of Jane Austen’s famous 19th-century tale of manners, morality, and marriage and the 2009 parody novel by Seth Grahame-Smith. The novel places our hero’s and heroines in an alternative universe version of Regency-era England where zombies roam the English countryside following the black plague.
Matt Smith delights in the role of the ponderous Mr. Collins, who will perhaps battle the undead in addition to writing dull sermons. Lily James (War & Peace) plays a kick-ass Elizabeth Bennet, and Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister in Game of Thrones) is the formidable Lady Catherine de Bourgh. Charles Dance (Games of Thrones Tywin Lannister) plays the bemused patriarch, Mr. Bennet. Sam Riley (Maleficent) is Mr. Darcy.
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies opened in the US on the 5th February.
UK Release Date: 11th February 2016
Synopsis: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is a fresh twist on Jane Austen’s widely celebrated novel. A mysterious plague has fallen upon 19th century England, the land is overrun with the undead and feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet is a master of martial arts and weaponry. Casting aside personal and social prejudices, Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy must unite on the blood-soaked battlefield to rid the country of the zombie menace and discover their true love for one another.
