Pride and Prejudice and Zombies {Book to Movie}


So with all the Zombie craze they made the book Pride and Prejudice and Zombies into a movie. I saw the trailer and I think this movie will be entertaining. I actually have  not read the book but a friend of mine has and she didn't really like it. I wonder if you are a true Jane Austen fan if that makes the difference wether you would like this movie or not. I think I will go see it just because it looks entertaining. I am not going to put high expectations on this movie and let it be what it is, "A Zombie Movie". 
This movie comes out February 5th. It is PG-13 and 108 minutes.

{Movie Synopsis}

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.

{Book Synopsis}


“It is a truth universally acknowledged that a zombie in possession of brains must be in want of more brains.”

So begins Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, an expanded edition of the beloved Jane Austen novel featuring all-new scenes of bone-crunching zombie mayhem. As our story opens, a mysterious plague has fallen upon the quiet English village of Meryton—and the dead are returning to life! Feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet is determined to wipe out the zombie menace, but she’s soon distracted by the arrival of the haughty and arrogant Mr. Darcy. What ensues is a delightful comedy of manners with plenty of civilized sparring between the two young lovers—and even more violent sparring on the blood-soaked battlefield. Can Elizabeth vanquish the spawn of Satan? And overcome the social prejudices of the class-conscious landed gentry? Complete with romance, heartbreak, swordfights, cannibalism, and thousands of rotting corpses, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies transforms a masterpiece of world literature into something you’d actually want to read.

Lily James as Elizabeth Bennet
Lily has been in a ton of things but she is most well know for her role on Downton Abbey, Cinderella and the new mini series War and Peace. Her upcoming projects are The Kaiser's Last Kiss and Baby Driver. I am looking forward to more movies by this fabulous actress.
