Pride and Prejudice and Zombies balances machetes with manners in first teaser
It is a truth universally acknowledged that a Jane Austen heroine should always recreate the opening shot of Reservoir Dogs with her sisters as Sleigh Bells’ “A/B” drowns out the moans of the undead.
Yes, the women are still refined, and the men proper – but whist, piano, and needlepoint aren’t the only skills required if you’re going to succeed in this English countryside. Under the tutelage of their father, Elizabeth Bennet (Lily James) and her sisters have become a corset-wearing, gun-toting, knife-wielding squadron of zombie hunters – who are also, of course, moderately acceptable marriage material.
