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.

Synopsis:

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? »

Why Kenneth Branagh Loves Mysteries, from ‘Wallander’ to ‘Murder on the Orient Express’ (Emmy Watch)

26 June 2016 10:01 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Kenneth Branagh fell into his love affair with the “Wallander” mysteries by Swedish author Henning Mankell (1948 – 2015) for “the sheer pleasure of the reading,” he told me over the phone. “It was novel by novel. I’m not usually a kind of completist in this regard, but each novel did send me to the next one, and I did read them in order, and I did find myself drawn in, hypnotically. I didn’t feel I’d met anyone quite like this before or this landscape.”

The novels are set in Sweden, in and around the town of Ystad, 35 miles south-east of the city of Malmö, in the southern province of Skåne. And that’s where the PBS Mystery series (four seasons, from 2009 through 2016) is also filmed. “It’s vast and flat,” said Branagh. “It has a strong regional dialect. It’s a curious, forgotten, unfashionable pocket of land. Over 60 percent »

Interview: Legendary SFX Artist Mark Coulier Talks Pride And Prejudice And Zombies

31 May 2016 5:23 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

In 1813, renowned writer Jane Austen published a book called Pride and Prejudice, which tells the story of the Bennet sisters, who are gussied up and married off to wealthy suitors, one by one. The only sister who seems to question this system is Elizabeth, the rebellious member of the family, who feels strong disdain for the system that treats her more like property than a proper citizen. In 2009, author Seth Grahame-Smith put a new twist on the old tale by creating a parody novel called Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, which loosely follows the same basic outline, but adds an entirely different obstacle to the tale: the living dead.

In Grahame-Smith’s story, the girls are not only fighting for the right to be married into regal families, but also battling for their lives on a daily basis. An outbreak has occurred within these humble streets, and now flesh-eating zombies »

Anchor Bay Sends Some Tolstoy Your Way When War & Peace Hits DVD/Bluray This May!

16 March 2016 2:52 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Let’s just be honest for a second…I’m a sucker for period dramas. No, not films that deal with menstrual issues, but the grandiose parties, attire and sweeping epics that keep you on the edge of your seat. It’s not a horror thing, but hey, I’m the editor in chief of this site, so you’re going to be reading about some of that wonderful stuff from time to time. One period drama that I’ve been dying to see is set to make its DVD/Bluray debut, thanks to the folks at Anchor Bay. BBC’s War & Peace looks like one hell of a time, with everyone from There Will Be Blood/Looper‘s Paul Dano to the original Hannibal Lecter himself, Brian Cox. Ab has set May 10th as the release date for the miniseries adaption of Tolstoy’s classic novel and you better »

Sky Ferreira Gets Behind The Wheel For Edgar Wright’s Crime Thriller Baby Driver

14 March 2016 8:24 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Snapping up projects at a similar pace to industry confidant Cara Delevingne, The Wrap is reporting that singer-actress-model Sky Ferreira (The Green Inferno) has been added to the ensemble cast for Edgar Wright’s crime drama, Baby Driver.

There, she’ll be flanked by Jamie Foxx, Mad Men‘s Jon Hamm, Lily James, Jon Bernthal and Kevin Spacey, who Ferreira recently teamed with for next month’s presidential comedy Elvis & Nixon. No details were disclosed about her role among Wright’s ensemble, nor how she will play into the core plot of Ansel Elgort’s (The Fault in Our Stars) expert getaway speedster.

Working to the beat of a capricious mob boss (Spacey) Elgort earns the title of Baby Driver due to his young complexion. Equipped with a rock n’ roll soundtrack and a peculiar hearing condition, our unlikely hero fast becomes the most reliable driver in the business, though »
