The Trailer for 'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies' Is All Manners, Romance, and Killing the Undead

Very difficult to do in an Empire-waist dress.

Colin Firth diving into a tub of algae was nice and all, but haven't you ever thought to yourself "Wouldn't Pride and Prejudice be even better if there was more action and violence and, I dunno, a decapitation or two?"

WISHES GRANTED. #blessed #diehardgeneration

The trailer for Burr Steers's Pride and Prejudice and Zombies box-stepped onto the internet Friday, and it is half old-timey balls where everyone knows all the dances, half interrupting old-timey balls where everyone knows all the dances to dispatch guests who have succumbed to the "mysterious plague."

This certainly complicates the whole "marrying up so my poor-in-a-genteel-way, heirless father doesn't have to support me anymore" thing, but who wouldn't want to put a ring on it when the young lady knows her way around a katana? Spot Lily James, Bella Heathcote, Suki Waterhouse, and the Eleventh Doctor AKA Matt Smith here.
