Get ready for some serious Girl Power in this new trailer for “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.” The film debuts in two weeks, but Sony Pictures has released a new action-packed trailer with the caption “Take pride in kicking a**!” to tease the new film’s gritty nature.
Set in Jane Austen’s world of elegance and etiquette, “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” is a fun spin on the story of Darcy and Elizabeth if they’d been faced with a zombie apocalypse during their courtship. In this version of events, there are no simpering ladies, vying desperately for a husband.
According to the family patriarch, Elizabeth Bennet (Lily James) and her sisters are “trained for battle, not the kitchen.” He’s not wrong, since nearly every moment of the trailer is jam-packed full of Lizzie and her gang of female fighters taking down zombies left and right.
Set to a darker version of the anthem ‘These Boots Were Made For Walking,’ the trailer will surely give you chills of both fear and excitement. Some of those zombies are downright terrifying.
Among all the blood, guts and gore, there does seem to be the much-adored love story brewing with Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy (Sam Riley), and Mr. Collins (Matt Smith) and Lady Catherine de Bourgh (Lena Headey) are at the ready to do some meddling as well.
“Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” hits theaters Friday (Feb. 5)
