Lena Headey’s Lady Catherine isn’t above using brute force to her point in this new clip from “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.”
In the scene, Lady Catherine — accompanied by the imposing Wilhelm (Ryan Oliva) — attempts to make Lily James’ defiant Elizabeth Bennet promise she won’t become romantically involved with Mr. Darcy. But Lady Catherine probably didn’t envision her late-night visit ending with Wilhelm in a crumpled heap on the floor.
Based on Seth Grahame-Smith bestselling parody novel of the same name, “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” is set in a post-apocalyptic 19th-century England overrun by the undead. There, Elizabeth Bennet, a master of weaponry and the martial arts, who must unite with Mr. Darcy (Sam Riley) to rid their country of the zombie menace, and to discover their love for one another.
Directed by Burr Steers, “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” also stars Jack Huston, Bella Heathcote, Douglas Booth, Matt Smith and Charles Dance. The film opens Feb. 5.
