Earlier this month, the UK Trailer was released for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, the upcoming film adapted from the Quirk Books title of the same name.
Now, Sony Pictures has released the U.S. trailer for the film, which is a take on Jane Austen’s literary classic Pride and Prejudice, and centers on the Bennett sisters — Elizabeth (Lily James), Lydia (Ellie Bamber), Mary (Millie Brady), Jane (Bella Heathcote), and Kitty (Suki Waterhouse) — and their zombie-killing abilities in Regency-era England.
Watch the new trailer here below, and check out the new movie poster.
The two trailers are vastly different in tone: the 1-minute UK version (released by Lionsgate) comes across as half Masterpiece Theater, half CW TV show, and has the lightheartedness that is present in the novel; the 2 1/2-minute U.S. version, on the other hand, slants this film as more of a horror story of a zombie apocalypse that leaves the survivors no choice but to fight or die, a prospect they’ve been training for their entire lives.
While we’ve seen the Bennett sisters before, this new trailer introduces us to their father, played by Game Of Thrones star Charles Dance, as well as his Thrones co-star Lena Headey‘s “famed eye-patch-sporting warrior” — see the 2:08 minute mark in the trailer. Blink and you’ll miss her, but what we do see promises some great action to come.
Directed by Burr Steers, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, which also stars Sam Riley, Jack Huston, Douglas Booth, and Doctor Who‘s Matt Smith, opens in theaters on February 5, 2016.
