Opening: “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” (2/5/2016)

You’re probably slavering for new zombie mayhem and since I’ve given the recently released “Scouts Guide To The Zombie Apocalypse” a little promotional love here on, how could I let a film called “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” pass me by. This film opens today for those who are interested so check out the poster, premise and cast down below and then I’ll return with some thoughts.

Poster - Pride and Prejudice and Zombies - 2016

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is an fresh twist on Jane Austen’s widely celebrated novel. A mysterious plague has fallen upon 19th century Britain, the land is overrun with the undead and feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet is a master of martial arts and weaponry. Casting aside personal pride 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.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Now I should admit first that I have never read “Pride and Prejudice” so some of the stuff that is likely referenced here will be lost on me. This does look like fun and works along well with “Abraham Lincoln Vs. Zombies” as far as a period piece might go. It’s definitely interesting looking and probably a lot of gory fun. I’m interested for sure but don’t think I can spare the time with Toy Fair happening so soon and finding me getting prepared for the four days of coverage. What about you readers? Do you think you will catch this film in the theaters? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below.
