DVD Review – Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (2016)

27 June 2016 5:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, 2016.

Directed by Burr Steers.

Starring Lily James, Sam Riley, Jack Huston, Sally Phillips, Bella Heathcote, Millie Brady, Douglas Booth, Charles Dance, Lena Headey and Matt Smith.


In 19th century England five sisters try to cope with the social pressures of the day, all the while fighting off hordes of marauding zombies.

Despite being based on a book – or two books, if you count Jane Austen’s original Pride & Prejudice – it is no doubt the inexplicable success of TV period drama Downton Abbey that will lend a hand to this film finding an audience outside of the zombie fanboys. Yes, inevitably when something becomes popular it will then be cross-pollenated with a genre from the opposite end of the spectrum and… Ta Da! You now have a film based around two popular genres, in this case zombies and costume drama, so how could it fail? »

And Then There Were None Review

9 March 2016 3:05 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Both nights of the miniseries were provided prior to broadcast.

Even though it might not have been represented in direct name, for decades there have been countless spiritual successors and adaptations of Agatha Christie’s airtight whodunnit And Then There Were None. TV versions go so far back that the novel’s original British title seemed decent enough for the small screen. More modern interpretations – CBS’ slick summer slasher Harper’s Island – have kept its structure and enhanced the splatter.

There have been Family Guy episodes, crappy Ya updates, and now BBC One and Lifetime have joined forces for a co-production of the novel. There’s a lurid new sex-and-violence bent to pull the material into the modern world it’s airing in (and Lifetime’s lineup), but writer Sarah Phelps has largely stayed close to Christie’s biggest turns. It’s a mouse trap set-up that can’t help »

3 March 2016 12:03 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Lifetime have announced a Sunday March 13th premiere date for the acclaimed and dark BBC mini-series adaptation of arguably the most influential and best-selling mystery novel of all time - Agatha Christie's "And Then There Were None".

Charles Dance, Sam Neill, Miranda Richardson, Aidan Turner, Toby Stephens, Noah Taylor, Maeve Dermody, Douglas Booth, Burn Gorman and Anna-Maxwell Martin star in the story of eight guests invited to a remote island manor at the behest of a mysterious Mr. U. N. Owen. All of them, and the two servants on the island, have a guilty secret and soon each gets knocked off one by one - the survivors turning on each other as their number dwindles.

Originally released as three one-hour episodes in the U.K., Lifetime is airing the work instead in two telemovie-length parts on that day and the next night (Monday March 14th). There's also a new trailer for the U. »

A Storm in the Stars

18 February 2016 11:44 AM, PST | ScreenTerrier | See recent ScreenTerrier news »

17 year old Elle Fanning stars as Mary Godwin in A Storm in the Stars which follows the tumultuous relationship between Mary, who wrote the iconic gothic-horror novel Frankenstein when she was just 19, and the young poet Percy Shelley.

Mary is a rebellious and outspoken teenager. When she meets the poet Percy Shelley, there’s a spark of attraction between the two outsiders who feel trapped within polite society. Percy is contrary and selfish, talking of sexual freedom and progressive ideas that are beyond the boundaries of their age. For sheltered Mary, it’s love at first sight.

Douglas Booth (represented by Curtis Brown in the UK) stars as Shelley. Douglas can currently be seen in Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, and previously starred opposite another young American starlet, Hailee Steinfield in Romeo and Juliet.

BAFTA Rising Star nominee Bel Powley (represented by Bwh) plays Claire Claremont, Mary’s stepsister who »

New Sparta readies Cold War thriller

15 February 2016 9:00 PM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: Film will tell the story of the CIA’s attempts to recover a Soviet nuclear submarine, dubbed Project Azorian.

London’s New Sparta Films is lining up a feature about Project Azorian, the true story of a major CIA-led Cold War operation to recover a nuclear-armed Soviet submarine that sinks in mysterious circumstances in the Pacific Ocean.

Using ‘The Azorian Project’ as a working title, the company has book option rights to David H Sharp’s The CIA’s Greatest Covert Operation, which is being used as the basis to develop the ambitious project.

Reclusive billionaire Howard Hughes, depicted by Leonardo DiCaprio in Martin Scorsese’s The Aviator, was involved in the CIA’s daring attempt to recover the submarine and its technology from under the nose of the Soviets.

The mission is also remembered for coining the still oft-used phrase “we can neither confirm nor deny’, which the CIA utilised to keep a press at bay »

'Kung Fu Panda 3' Repeats Box Office Win with $21 Million

7 February 2016 11:09 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The hit animated sequel Kung Fu Panda 3 ended the first month of 2016 on a high note at the box office, taking in $48 million in its opening weekend. In the first frame of February, this adventure will face three new movies, Universal's Hail, Caesar!, Sony's Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and Lionsgate's The Choice.

Movie Review – Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (2016)

6 February 2016 4:10 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, 2016.

Written and Directed by Burr Steers.

Starring Lily James, Sam Riley, Jack Huston, Bella Heathcote, Douglas Booth, Matt Smith, Ellie Bamber, Millie Brady, Suki Waterhouse, Sally Phillips, Charles Dance, and Lena Headey.


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.

Slow motion takes over as the Bennet sisters begin unsheathing various types of blades hidden underneath their elaborate Victorian-era appropriate garments (in what is a rather titillating shot), but most crucially, seems to promise that the ludicrous movie titled Pride and Prejudice and Zombies will live up to the level of absurd, stupid entertainment promised. That one quick scene offers essentially everything one could want coming into something so ridiculous; beautiful women dressed to kill that know their way around daggers and swords, »
