New 'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies' Photos Reveal Badass Zombie Slayers

18 hours ago | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

New photos from Pride and Prejudice and Zombies suggest that the forthcoming big-screen adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's novel may not be exactly what we've been anticipating. First published in 2009, Grahame-Smith's book became an unexpected bestseller, thanks in part to the novelty of introducing the undead into the world created by Jane Austen. The writer followed that up with his novel Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, which was made into a broadly comic, self-consciously silly blockbuster in 2012 by Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted). That set audience expectations for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, but a new interview suggests that the filmmakers have something else in mind. As in Austen's classic book, the movie will revolve around Elizabeth Bennett (Lily...

Sex Sells in Corseted New 'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies' Pictures

4 July 2015 12:28 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

It took a long time for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies to get the green light and I assume that's for a reason. I wasn't as large a detractor when it came to Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter as most (he threw a cow people!), but I have to assume the major selling point behind getting this adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's revisionist novel is the fact not only will Elizabeth Bennet and her sisters be hunting zombies, but they'll be embracing keeping their weapons in some of the most discrete of places. Along with a batch of new pictures from the film, Entertainment Weekly has a quote from star Lily James, who plays Elizabeth Bennet, saying, "Rather than knitting and crocheting, they're polishing muskets... She's the most badass zombie slayer there is." The Bennet sister are trained to fight like ninjas by Mr Darcy (Sam Riley) and the film has »

"Pride And Prejudice And Zombies"

4 July 2015 8:18 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Sneak Peek new images from director Burr Steers live-action feature adaptation of author Seth Grahame-Smith's 2009 parody novel "Pride And Prejudice And Zombies", that combines Jane Austen's classic 1813 novel "Pride and Prejudice" with elements of modern 'zombie' fiction:

"...'Elizabeth Bennet' and her four sisters live on a countryside estate with their parents. 'Mr. Bennet' guides his daughters in martial arts and weapons training, molding them into a fearsome zombie-fighting army.

"Meanwhile, 'Mrs. Bennet' endeavours to marry the girls off to wealthy suitors. When the wealthy and single 'Mr. Bingley' purchases a nearby house, Mrs. Bennet spies an opportunity and sends the girls to the first ball where Bingley is expected to appear.

"The girls defend the party from a 'zombie' attack, and attraction sparks between Mr. Bingley and the eldest daughter 'Jane Bennet', while Elizabeth clashes with Bingley's friend, the monster-hunter 'Fitzwilliam Darcy'..."

'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies' First Look: Do we even care anymore?

3 July 2015 9:46 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The most surprising thing about "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies"? That they actually ended up making it. After losing three directors and at least one major star (Natalie Portman), the adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's bestselling mashup novel is finally headed to the big screen, and EW has the exclusive on the first official images from the film, which director Burr Steers ("Igby Goes Down") says will be played without the tongue-in-cheek tone readers of the book may have been expecting: “The idea was that it was Pride and Prejudice set in this alternate world and then for everyone to play it straight,” Steers told EW. “The movie’s big wink is that there is no big wink.” Added star Lily James ("Cinderella"): “It’s definitely not camp.” You can view the images below. But first, here's a capsule history of the long-in-the-works production: April 2009: Seth Grahame-Smith's »

New Pride And Prejudice And Zombies Images Prepare for Proper Slaying

3 July 2015 9:20 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Screen Gems has released some new Pride and Prejudice and Zombies images. Directed by Burr Steers (Igby Goes Down) and based on the parody novel by Seth Grahame-Smith, the story follows Elizabeth Bennet (Lily James) and her sisters Lydia (Ellie Bamber), Mary (Millie Brady), Jane (Bella Heathcote), and Kitty (Suki Waterhouse) as they try to navigate societal pressures of the landed gentry and fend off hoards of zombies. Speaking to EW, Steers explained how he was approaching the film more as a spin on Jane Austen than a B-movie. “The idea was that it was Pride and Prejudice set in this alternate world and then for everyone to play it straight,” says Steers. “The movie’s big wink is that there is no big wink.” [caption id="attachment_481321" align="alignright" width="350"] Image via Screen Gems[/caption] That’s a difficult line to walk.

Photos: "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies"

3 July 2015 8:27 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Continuing their pre-Comic Con coverage, EW has posted new photos and details about the upcoming period horror tale "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" which will be getting its own panel in San Diego next weekend.

Based on Seth Grahame-Smith's mash-up novel, the film takes Jane Austen's classic "Pride and Prejudice" and re-imagines it with an apocalyptic twist. The film's director Burr Steers says that despite the premise, the tone here is not camp in the slightest with the action played straight:

"The idea was that it was Pride and Prejudice set in this alternate world and then for everyone to play it straight. The movie's big wink is that there is no big wink."

Lily James, Sam Riley, Bella Heathcote, Douglas Booth, Jack Huston and Matt Smith str in the film which opens February 19th next year.

Britons And Brain-Munchers In New Images From Pride And Prejudice And Zombies

3 July 2015 8:10 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

See Full Gallery Here

The latest take on Jane Austen’s classic love story is a little, how should we say… revisionist. In Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, out next February, it is a truth, universally acknowledged, that a zombie in possession of brains must be in want of more brains.

Based on the novel by Seth Grahame-Smith, which riffed raucously on Austen’s classic, this new Pride and Prejudice imagines Elizabeth Bennet and her corset-clad sisters as warriors of the Victorian era, searching for husbands while simultaneously fending off hordes of the undead.

“Rather than knitting and crocheting, they’re polishing muskets,” says Lily James, the Cinderella actress who plays Elizabeth, to EW, which debuted the above images. Of Lizzy, James says, “She’s the most badass zombie slayer there is.”

Even more fascinating than the reimagined Elizabeth, though, may be the tone director Burr Steers is aiming to strike. »

The Ladies Gear Up In New Pride And Prejudice And Zombies Stills

3 July 2015 7:45 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

With this type of movie you wouldn't expect the material to be taken very seriously, but believe it or not, that's seems to be director Burr Steers (Igby Goes Down) approach. “The idea was that it was 'Pride and Prejudice' set in this alternate world and then for everyone to play it straight," he tells EW. "The movie’s big wink is that there is no big wink." Well, that should be interesting to see at least. Pride And Prejudice And Zombies is an adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's period horror parody, and you can see the five Bennet sisters - Lydia (Ellie Bamber), Jane (Bella Heathcote), Elizabeth (Lily James), Mary (Millie Brady), and Kitty (Sukie Waterhouse) - in action on February 5, 2016. »

The world of Jane Austen is associated with fussy manners and crises of morality and emotion, but in the hands of writer Seth Grahame-Smith, it's the perfect setting for the undead.

From Zoolander 2 to 23 Jump Street, with 100s in-between. Here's our rundown of the assorted movie sequels in the works...

Think Hollywood is bereft of original ideas? You just might after this. Here's our look at the assorted movie sequels currently in the works. Since we last did a list like this, we've dropped films that seem to have died a death - Wanted 2, Spring Breakers 2 - but we'll keep this rundown up to date over the coming month.

Without further ado...

23 Jump Street

Sony is pressing ahead with a third Jump Street movie, as well as a possible Jump Street vs Men In Black film, and a female-headlined spin-off. For 23 Jump Street specifically, Rodney Rothman is back and working on the script (he wrote the second one). It's unclear yet if Chris Miller and Phil Lord can find breathing space in their schedule to direct. Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are both expected back, »
