Holy Bennett sisters, the (very, very) long awaited first trailer for the film adaption of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies has arrived and it’s butt-kicking level is set at 11.

Where Elizabeth Bennetts of the past have been feisty heroines with tight brown curls, dancing their way through throngs of rich young men surely in want of a wife, this Miss Bennett played by Lily James of Cinderella fame is in want of a weapon fit for killing zombies.

The trailer, revealed at ComiCon, also contains the very exciting news that Mr. Darcy will be played by Sam Riley, who we fell madly in love with after his excellent turn playing Joy Division singer Ian Curtis in Control. Former Dr. Who star Matt Smith will turn in an irritating (on purpose) Mr. Collins while Suki Waterhouse takes on the role of Kitty, the idiot youngest Bennett sister who runs away with Mr. Wickham, a role given to the dashing Jack Huston. Lena Headley, a.k.a. Cersei to Game of Thrones fans, has an unspecified role in the film.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies will swing into theaters with a steel pipe and petticoats on February 5, 2016. Until then, keep your brains in your bonnet for goodness sake.
