Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is getting the cameo treatment.
In an exclusive poster (below) debuting on EW.com, Elizabeth Bennet, Mr. Darcy, Mr. Wickham, and Mr. Collins appear in a red collage, forming a woman’s silhouette. Look a little a little closer to find Jane Bennet, Mr. Bingley, Kitty Bennet, Mary Bennet, Lydia Bennet, Lady Catherine de Bourgh, roses, skulls, and — of course — a horde of zombies.
The poster arrives just days before the film’s Feb. 5 release. Based on Seth Grahame-Smith’s undead take on Jane Austen’s classic romance, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies centers on the relationship between Elizabeth (Downton Abbey’s Lily James) and Mr. Darcy (Maleficent’s Sam Riley), unfolding in 19th-century England where the “sorry stricken” run deep.
Burr Steers wrote and directed the film, which also features Bella Heathcote, Douglas Booth, Lena Headey, Matt Smith, Jack Huston, and Charles Dance. The film is, in some respects, vastly different from other Pride and Prejudice-inspired fare. “Rather than knitting and crocheting, they’re polishing muskets,” James told EW of the Bennet sisters in July. “[Lizzy is] the most badass zombie slayer there is.”
