After colliding on the page in 2009, a famous set of Jane Austen’s characters are now poised to fight zombies on the big screen in an upcoming film.
Titled Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, the first trailer for the movie has now been released. The film is written and directed by Burr Steers, who adapts it from the novel by Seth Grahame-Smith. Game of Thrones alum Lena Headey and Charles Dance reunite in the film, joined by Sam Riley, Lily James, Jack Huston, Bella Heathcote, and Matt Smith.
The film’s synopsis is as follows.
Jane Austen’s classic tale of the tangled relationships between lovers from different social classes in 19th century England is faced with a new challenge — an army of undead zombies.
This is the second adaptation of Grahame-Smith to make it to the big screen, following 2012’s Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, which Grahame-Smith wrote the screenplay for. »

When Warner Bros.' movie version of The Flash hits theaters in the spring 2018, The CW's The Flash will be in the midst of its fourth season, provided the show isn't canceled before then, though that seems highly unlikely at this point. While there is very little we know about The Flash movie, we reported back in May that the project will most likely have Ezra Miller playing Barry Allen, instead of a different incarnation of The Flash. Since both the movie and TV show will focus on the same character, Den of Geek has a new report which claims that Warner Bros. is working on a costume that will be strikingly different than the TV version.
The site's source reveals that The Flash movie producers are actively trying to avoid "any comparison to the well designed and received TV version," with the source claiming this suit will look like armor. »

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies has had a long a troubled journey to the screen, but it looks like Seth Grahame-Smith's 2009 hit novel is finally getting the adaptation we all wanted (?). In my mind, the novel sets an interesting precedent in terms of how books are created and published. It's success was warranted as an oddity, but it remains to be seen if the movie can sustain our interest for its runtime.
I think the marketing is smart to appeal directly to a female demographic here and I think fans of Auten's book will get some real joy seeing her strong character kicking ass in a less conventional way.

Comic book fans are starting to get a clearer picture of what 2018.s The Flash is going to look like. For a year now, we.ve known that The Stanford Prison Experiment.s Ezra Miller will be playing Barry Allen on the big screen. Then we learned earlier this year that 21 Jump Street writers Phil Lord and Chris Miller penned the treatment. Finally, it was reported on Monday that Pride and Prejudice and Zombie writer Seth Grahame-Smith is in negotiations to direct the feature. Behind the scenes, things are shaping up. However, there.s still a lot we don.t know about the DC Extended Universe.s interpretation of the Flash -- namely, what his costume will look like -- but we may have just gotten a few hints in the wardrobe department. Den of Geek has posted several tidbits of what The Flash movie is aiming to have the »
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.
“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.”

One thing that even the fiercest of book critics would agree with is that Jane Austen.s classic novel Pride and Prejudice probably could have done with some more zombies. Well, those of you who feel the same way will soon get your wish, because Pride And Prejudice And Zombies is coming to a big screen near you soon, and its first UK trailer makes it look immense. Yep, that looks about as superb as we probably all thought. Pride And Prejudice And Zombies is based upon a novel that was written by Seth Grahame-Smith back in 2009. Rather than being an original piece, Jane Austen herself actually gets a co-author credit because Smith used the original text of Pride And Prejudice and then just incorporated zombie and ninja elements to it. Which is about as ingenius an ideas as I've ever heard. Clearly, this book was always going to be »

It’s been a busy week for DC’s Expanded Universe, as Warner Bros. places all hands at the pump to drive up excitement during this weekend’s New York Comic-Con event. Indeed, it’s been of particular importance for DC’s The Flash, as not only is The CW banging the drum as season 2 of their hit show unrolls on the small-screen, but early reports are beginning to emerge relating to Warner’s 2018 standalone film.
Placing We Need to Talk About Kevin alum Ezra Miller in the suit as the title speedster – better known to you, I and the remainder of Central City as the Fastest Man Alive – the feature is still a ways away, but that hasn’t stopped Den of Geek from unearthing a new rumor regarding Miller’s costume.

Lionsgate released the first trailer for “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” on Friday. The film is based on the Seth Grahame-Smith novel, which was itself a twist on the classic Jane Austen book. The film mashes up characters from Austen’s book about love in Victorian England with a horde of the walking undead. In the trailer, things start off much as one would expect a Jane Austen story to start, with lots of genteel society types enjoying a lovely party — until zombies begin feasting on them.

It’s the mannered against the undead in the riotous first teaser for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, the long-gestating adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith’s acclaimed novel of the same name. Smashing genres together in the vein of Shaun of the Dead and Zombieland, Burr Steers’ visceral period piece is finally ready to strut its stuff after a number of creative switcheroos, but the director is keen to point out that the film takes the inclusion of the undead very seriously indeed, and in no way acts as a camp satire of Jane Austin’s seminal novel.
Granted, the timeless love story between Elizabeth Bennet (Cinderella‘s Lily James) and Mr. Darcy will still be woven into the fabric of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, they’ll just have to deal with flesh-munching zombies – referred to as the ‘Sorry Stricken’ – in addition to the usual relationship troubles. For Steers, “the »

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 Dance, Lena Headey, Lily James, Douglas Booth,and Matt Smith all cast in iconic roles. The trailer points to blood, bodices and battles and is sure to be fiendishly fun.

The second has yet to make his appearance - actor Ezra Miller who will play the part in the big screen adaptation that will be incorporated into the DC cinematic universe. Last month Miller revealed that he's seen the costume design he'll sport in the films and described it as "post apocalyptic".
Today, Den of Geek have talked with a source who has seen the costume and confirms this, saying the new suit will be "tech-based" and is being deliberately designed in a way to avoid "any comparison to the well designed and received TV version."
Their source goes on to say the design seems to have taken inspiration directly from the video game "Injustice: Gods »

Remember way back in 2009 when a new sub-genre of parody novel was kicked off by Seth Grahame-Smith? “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” spawned a whole slew of stories that mashed together classic public domain reading with pop culture icons. From vampires to sea monsters, nothing was too outrageous. LionsGate optioned the rights to “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” and set to work creating a world where Jane Austen meets the walking dead. And now the first UK teaser trailer is here, which makes sense since Austen was English. Empire waist gowns and bloody gore work surprisingly well together. Sure, some will say this is a travesty and Jane Austen is rolling in her grave. But be honest. Who wouldn't want a boring English country dance interrupted by a chance to use their choreography skills to destroy the undead? What better way to get in the mood for #WorldZombieDay, than with »
