Watch: Lily James Slays Undead in ‘Pride and Prejudice and Zombies’ Trailer

9 October 2015 10:33 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Elizabeth Bennet has been a role model for young women for generations, and Lily James’ portrayal of the heroine in “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” will give little girls a brand-new Lizzie to look up to: a fearsome zombie slayer.

Based on Seth Grahame-Smith’s novel that fuses the Jane Austen classic with the zombie apocalypse, the Lionsgate release will see what happens when the undead invade Regency-era England.

“To succeed in polite society, a young woman must be many things: kind, well-read and accomplished,” James narrates in the first U.K. trailer for the film. “But to survive in the world as we know it, she’ll need other qualities.”

The clip then takes a turn, featuring the Bennet sisters engaging in “Kill Bill”-style combat. Lena Headey, Matt Smith, Sam Riley, Douglas Booth, Jack Huston and Charles Dance also star.

Burr Steers directs from a script he wrote with David O. Russell. »

Jane Austen gets twisted in Pride and Prejudice and Zombies teaser & poster

9 October 2015 8:49 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The works of Jane Austen tend to have a marmite effect on audiences, most adore her classical romanticism whilst others aren’t so impressed. To some the literary works of the late Austen are seen as a bit old and stuffy, her stories seen as nothing more than boring period dramas about spoiled society women. Well people in that category prepare to rethink your opinions with this first look teaser for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.

Based on the bestselling novel by Seth Grahame-Smith this version inserts zombies right into the middle of the famous story. This incarnation of Elizabeth Bennet is a little more Lara Croft than we’ve seen before. It’s a star-studded production with Charles DanceLena HeadeyLily JamesDouglas Booth,and Matt Smith all cast in iconic roles. The trailer points to blood, bodices and battles and is sure to be fiendishly fun.

Check Out The First Teaser & Poster For Pride And Prejudice And Zombies

9 October 2015 7:32 AM, PDT | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Lionsgate have released the first official teaser and poster for Pride And Prejudice And Zombies. Starring Lily James (Cinderella) as Elizabeth Bennett and Sam Riley (Maleficent) as Mr. Darcy, it presents Jane Austen's beloved costume drama... with one small twist. Based on this tease, it looks like it could be a lot of fun - and it has a talented ensemble on board (including former Doctor Who Matt Smith & Game Of Thrones' duo Charles Dance and Lena Headey). However, if the sight of eighteenth-century women tearing zombies to shreds doesn't quite do it for you, then it may be worth watching for Seth Grahame-Smith's involvement alone. The popular author wrote the novel of the same name, and was tipped to both write and direct WB's big screen take on The Flash earlier this week. This should give fans a better look at his talents.

Pride And Prejudice And Zombies: the first UK trailer

9 October 2015 6:55 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Florid dresses! Corsets! The living, flesh-eating dead! Here's the first UK trailer for the Pride And Prejudice And Zombies movie...

Jane Austen's classic novel Pride And Prejudice got a horror make-over courtesy of novelist Seth Grahame-Smith in 2009, and now, after a bit of a storied production, here's the big-screen version starring Sam Riley, Matt Smith, Lena Headey and Charles Dance.

Burr Steers is the director behind the movie, and it's a bit of a departure for him; he's perhaps best known as the writer and director of such films as Igby Goes Down and Charlie St Cloud. His experience as a dramatist should come in handy here though, since Pride And Prejudice And Zombies is still a period piece at heart, even if it does happen to feature an army of the drooling undead.

Here's our first look at the movie, which stars Lily James as Elizabeth Bennet, Sam Riley »

Trailer For ‘Pride and Prejudice and Zombies’ Adds the Undead to Jane Austen’s Classic Story

9 October 2015 6:53 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Following up Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, the latest Seth Grahame-Smith novel to get the feature film treatment is the long-gestating Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. Once circled by David O. Russell to direct, he stayed on as co-writer and passed helming duties off to Burr Steers (Igby Goes Down) and today brings the first trailer.

Considering my utter distaste for Grahame-Smith’s last adaptation, this one looks to have a much more enjoyable tone, so we’ll have to wait and see if they can pull it off come early next year. Starring Lily James, Bella Heathcote, Suki Waterhouse, Ellie Bamber, Millie Brady, Sam Riley, Jack Huston, Lena Headey, Douglas Booth, Matt Smith and Charles Dance, check out the UK trailer and poster below.

Is 'Game of Thrones' Season 6 Bringing Back Another Dead Character?

6 October 2015 7:57 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Aside from a few casting stories, most of which haven't been confirmed by HBO yet, there is very little we know about Season 6 of Game of Thrones. The beloved fantasy series eschewed its annual tradition of confirming new cast members at Comic-Con this year, so all we've had to go on this summer as production started are a handful of rumors and photos from the set. If new set photos are to be believed, yet another deceased Game of Thrones character will be brought back to life in Season 6. There will be Spoilers for those who aren't caught up through Season 5, so read on at your own risk.

Just months after his beloved character Jon Snow seemingly died in the Season 5 finale, Kit Harington was spotted on the set, sparking rumors that he will be either brought back to life, or that he wasn't dead at all. While we don't »

Collins' Sex Novels Have Enjoyed Unexpectedly Few Film Versions (The Stud, The Bitch)

21 September 2015 6:44 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Joan Collins in 'The Bitch': Sex tale based on younger sister Jackie Collins' novel. Author Jackie Collins dead at 77: Surprisingly few film and TV adaptations of her bestselling novels Jackie Collins, best known for a series of bestsellers about the dysfunctional sex lives of the rich and famous and for being the younger sister of film and TV star Joan Collins, died of breast cancer on Sept. 19, '15, in Los Angeles. The London-born (Oct. 4, 1937) Collins was 77. Collins' tawdry, female-centered novels – much like those of Danielle Steel and Judith Krantz – were/are immensely popular. According to her website, they have sold more than 500 million copies in 40 countries. And if the increasingly tabloidy BBC is to be believed (nowadays, Wikipedia has become a key source, apparently), every single one of them – 32 in all – appeared on the New York Times' bestseller list. (Collins' own site claims that a mere 30 were included.) Sex »

Doctor Who returns to our screens in a little over a month - and you can read our 100% accurate guide to the new series right here.

But while it's always useful to have the facts, it's also great fun to indulge in some wild speculation - and Doctor Who has generated plenty of that over the years.

These are 15 of the most ridiculous rumours about the BBC's sci-fi smash that never came true - from Hollywood stars taking over the Tardis to an untimely exit for Peter Capaldi.

Reports emerged in early 2007 that professional tough guy Jason Statham was the BBC's top pick to play the 11th incarnation of our Time Lord, in what was pitched as Doctor Who "meets gangland".
