Lizzy and Mr. Darcy are front and center in this new bloody lovely poster
Screen Gems just released a new poster for its zombie re-imagining of Austen’s classic novel Pride and Prejudice, and it’s bloody lovely, really. Based off Seth Grahame-Smith’s novel Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, we get a new poster with a “Bloody Lovely” tag, and it seems fitting for the movie.
Lizzy and Mr. Darcy are still the main couple-to-be, but things are a bit harsher and deadly in this version.
A zombie outbreak has fallen upon the land in Jane Austen’s classic tale of the tangled relationships between lovers from different social classes in 19th century England. Feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet (Lily James) is a master of martial arts and weaponry and the handsome Mr. Darcy (Sam Reilly) is a fierce zombie killer, yet the epitome of upper class prejudice. As the zombie outbreak intensifies, they must swallow their pride and join forces on the blood-soaked battlefield.
Lily James (Cinderella) and Sam Riley (Maleficent) play the proud couple, with Bella Heathcote (Dark Shadows) as Lily’s older and equally beautiful sister Jane, Douglas Booth (Jupiter Ascending) as Jane’s suitor Mr. Bingley, Charles Dance (Game of Thrones) as the Bennet patriarch, and Lena Headey (Game of Thrones) as the properly rude and very wealthy Lady Catherine de Bourgh.
I think this might be my favorite poster. I like the warrior look of the two main characters and the grabby hands rising from the depths of the earth.
