Pride and Prejudice and Zombies release date

Briefly: After so, so many years of development, with just about every director-star combo imaginable, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies finally has a set release date. Screen Gems will put the comedy horror mashup in theaters February 19, 2016, putting it up against the Naomi Watts thriller Shut In.

Based on the hit novel by Seth Grahame-Smith, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies moves the plot of Jane Austen‘s Pride and Prejudice to an idyllic English countryside littered with the undead. Lily James, Bella Heathcote, Ellie Bamber, Millie Brady, and Suki Waterhouse play the five Bennet sisters. Sam Riley, Douglas Booth, Jack Huston, and Matt Smith are their would-be suitors. Burr Steers directs. [Coming Soon]

Spy

Melissa McCarthy is funny pretty much all of the time, but she’s never better than when she’s working with Paul Feig. Following the massive successes of Bridesmaids and The Heat, the pair are reuniting again this summer for the James Bond sendup Spy.

McCarthy plays Susan Cooper, a deskbound CIA analyst supporting the agency’s suave star spy (Jude Law) on his missions, she never gets to have the glory. Until, that is, the usual James Bond types (including Jason Statham) are targeted by a villain (Rose Byrne) who claims to know all the identities of all the agents. With no other options, the CIA reluctantly promotes her to field agent.

Masterminds

Zach Galifianakis seems like a smart guy. Most of the characters he plays in the movies do not. So when he stars in a movie called Masterminds, you can probably guess that the title is being a bit sarcastic.

Directed by Jared Hess (Napoleon Dynamite), Masterminds is an action-comedy based on the true story of the 1997 Loomis Fargo heist. Galifianakis’ David Ghantt makes off with $17 million, making this the largest cash robbery in the U.S. at the time.

Now his challenge is trying to get away with it — and that task seems easier said than done once you see his motley crew of associates including Kristen WiigOwen Wilson, and Jason Sudeikis. Check out the first Masterminds trailer after the jump.
