Opening Tomorrow

Tomorrow, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies will be released in theaters. It is based on the book by Seth Grahame-Smith, the full title of which is Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: The Classic Regency Romance--Now With Ultraviolent Zombie Mayhem! [F GRA, also ebook]. That book was based upon Jane Austen's classic, Pride and Prejudice [F AUS, AB/CD AUS]. There have been many filmed versions of the classic, as well as retellings and extensions of the basic book. Somehow, though, I think Jane Austen would have been most surprised by Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.

Here's the U. S. trailer for the film (warning: if you're squeamish, please skip the trailer).

A few other, less gruesome, Pride and Prejudice related books are Longbourn by Jo Baker [F BAK, also ebook], which is a story of the kitchen staff at the Bennet family's estate, Ladies of Longbourn by Rebecca Ann Collins [ebook] about an imagined grandchild of Jane and Mr. Bingley, and Death Comes to Pemberley by P. D. James [F JAM, AB/CD JAM, ebook, and DVD DEA], in which Lydia's scoundrel husband, Mr. Wickham, is murdered (but not eaten by zombies)!
