a look at the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies first official trailer
“It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife… who can murder zombies.”
Pride and Prejudice is a big deal in my house and I must tell you, this trailer was met with pure disdain under our roof. Or, “I am quite put out!” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=foGraEVNI0s
I’m sure there are lots of you out there who want to see this movie, but I can’t imagine why. Dr. MyFiancee is a Jane Austen purist, so this simply angers her while there’s nothing here to tempt me sans legs. Now if this was an action comedy, I might want to check it out, but this trailer looks so damn serious, I can’t imagine this movie is any fun.
As for the trailer… it’s just another trailer. Here we are again with a cover of a popular old song everybody knows that was originally sung by a man and is now sung by a woman at a slower tempo. This is the weirdest trend ever, but it’s all over a very specific sort of exploitation movie over the last few years. There’s nothing new here except action Jane Austen characters, and I just don’t think there’s that big of an audience for such a thing, but I guess we’ll find out for sure this February.
