Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters: Period Piece with a Twist

Posted by Rosepixie on November 4, 2009

This is a trailer for the book Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters (from the people who brought us Pride and Prejudice and Zombies).

I love this trailer.  It’s so well done.  It starts out like a moderately decent period movie and the monster bits actually do kind of creep up and surprise you!  And the monster is remarkably well done (especially considering this is a book trailer).  Mary Ann is even kind of clueless, like in the original book!

This totally does what it’s supposed to do – it makes the book seem like a fun mix of monster story and Jane Austen.  It’s definitely an excellent book trailer!

    I have never heard of a book trailer before. This video is pretty funny, though.
