Popcorn & Prejudice: A Movie Blog

Jane Austen and . . . killer aliens?

The well-mannered staff here at Popcorn & Prejudice (that would be, um, me) are raising a ladylike eyebrow at this news: “Pride and Predator,” an upcoming movie that combines Jane Austen marriage drama and some thoroughly nasty aliens from outer space, resulting undoubtedly in some very bloody corsets. Elton John’s production company is behind this, and filming will start in London later this year. And I simply must say, in an Austenesque tone of righteous yet impeccably polite indignation, that it all sounds . . . kind of hilarious, actually, if it’s done right. I heard on NPR last week about an upcoming book called “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies,” so this seems to be a new trend. Perhaps I should rethink the name of my blog. Popcorn & Putrefaction, anyone?
