UK Teaser Trailer And Poster For Pride And Prejudice And Zombies

After years of difficult development and a revolving door of directors and cast, Pride And Prejudice And Zombies has finally found its shuffling feet. And to prove it here's the new UK teaser trailer and poster. Burr Steers directed from his own draft of the screenplay, with Matt Smith, Lily James, Sam Riley, Charles Dance, Lena Headey, Jack Huston, Douglas Booth and Bella Heathcote the cast battling the sorry stricken.

If it's passed you by so far, Seth Grahame-Smith's novel was at the vanguard of pastiche literary zom-com mash-ups that briefly crazed in bookshops a few years ago. P&P&Z sees weapons expert / martial artist Elizabeth Bennet (James) searching for love and independence as a zombie plague erupts around her and American wildlife inexplicably starts appearing in the Berkshire countryside.

Steers was the director of Igby Goes Down, 17 Again and Charlie St. Cloud, but seems to have taken to Georgian-era revenant-slaying gore with amusing gusto if that clip is anything to go by. Riley is Mr Darcy, with Smith as hapless parson Mr Collins. There's no sign of Dance and Headey yet, but we'd lay odds on them being Mr and Mrs Bennet.

Lionsgate are looking after the film in the UK, and it's out here on February 12. The poster very much riffs on the original cover of the book, which is published by Quirk.
