Lily James, her real-life boyfriend Matt Smith, Bella Heathcote, and Douglas Booth joined fans at the Grauman's Chinese Theatre for a literary feat.

Everyone attending the event was face painted to look like a zombie and handed a copy of Jane Austen's novel Pride and Prejudice, so producers could snag a Guinness World Record for the most zombies reading Jane Austen at one time.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies hits U.S. theatres on 5 February (16).
