If you're a lit-obsessed dreamer who devours Jane Austen novels, or a Walking Dead junkie who prefers their horror flicks as zombie-filled as possible, then you absolutely must feast your eyes on the new trailer for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. The 2009 parody novel is getting a big screen adaptation, and the latest international trailer is showing us just what to expect - which is a bloody good time.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies takes place in an alternate universe where England has been overrun by zombies and the Bennett sisters must fight to keep the undead at bay. Elizabeth Bennett (Lily James) is just as fiercely independent in this version of the story as she is in Jane Austen's original novel, only this time, she tucks a sword into her stockings and chops off zombie heads like it's her job. (Which it kind of is.) She declares in the trailer that she'd "never trade [her] sword for a ring," and that the right man would never ask her to do so. You go, girl.As the new movie is based on the original novel, there will also be plenty of swoon-worthy moments between Elizabeth and the standoffish Mr. Darcy, whom eventually fall in love despite their original judgments against another. That part of the story hasn't changed, only this time, the couple has to deal with hoards of deranged zombies in addition to prejudice.

Basically, this film is the feminist horror-comedy-romance hybrid that you absolutely need to see. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies hits theaters in February of 2016, so grab your girlfriends with strong stomachs and a passion for Ms. Austen for a seriously unforgettable movie experience.
