We can't wait to see the upcoming Pride and Prejudice and Zombies film (let's call it PPZ for short), adapted from Seth Grahame-Smith's best-selling mash up novel.

Set in the 19th century and directed by Burr Steers, PPZ tells the story of young and headstrong Elizabeth Bennet (Lily James) and the unlikely romance she shares with the charming Mr Darcy (Sam Riley). But on top of the usual societal troubles, everyone is faced with the inconvenient challenge of having to survive a zombie apocalypse.

We quite like seeing Lily's character kick zombie butt alongside the Bennet sisters played by Suki Waterhouse (Kitty Bennet), Bella Heathcote (Jane Bennet) and Ellie Bamber (Lydia Bennet). Lena Headey also wears an eye patch for her role as Lady Catherine de Bourgh, a well-known zombie-slayer.

"Rather than knitting and crocheting, they're polishing muskets," Lily told Entertainment Weekly. "She's the most badass zombie slayer there is."

The film is slated for release on 5 February 2016 in America. Watch the UK trailer below.
