Sucker Punch: New Posters, Featurette and Release Date

Close your eyes. Open your mind. You will be unprepared

Sucker Punch is an epic action fantasy that takes us into the vivid imagination of a young girl whose dream world provides the ultimate escape from her darker reality. Unrestrained by the boundaries of time and place, she is free to go where her mind takes her, and her incredible adventures blur the lines between what’s real and what is imaginary.

She has been locked away against her will, but Babydoll (Emily Browning) has not lost her will to survive. Determined to fight for her freedom, she urges four other young girls—the outspoken Rocket (Jena Malone), the street-smart Blondie (Vanessa Hudgens), the fiercely loyal Amber (Jamie Chung) and the reluctant Sweet Pea (Abbie Cornish)—to band together and try to escape their terrible fate at the hands of their captors, Blue (Oscar Isaac), Madam Gorski (Carla Gugino) and the High Roller (Jon Hamm).

Led by Babydoll, the girls engage in fantastical warfare against everything from samurais to serpents, with a virtual arsenal at their disposal. Together, they must decide what they are willing to sacrifice in order to stay alive. But with the help of a Wise Man (Scott Glenn), their unbelievable journey—if they succeed—will set them free.

Born from the creative vision of filmmaker Zack Snyder (“Watchmen,” “300”),Sucker Punch features an ensemble cast of young stars, including Emily Browning (“The Uninvited”), Abbie Cornish (“Bright Star”), Jena Malone (“Into the Wild”), Vanessa Hudgens (the “High School Musical” films) and Jamie Chung (“Sorority Row”). The film’s main cast also includes Oscar Isaac (“Robin Hood”) and Carla Gugino (“Watchmen”), with Jon Hamm (“The Town,” TV’s “Mad Men”) and Scott Glenn (“The Bourne Ultimatum”).

Release date: 1st April 2011

Right, that was all the stuff about the film that was in the press release so now I can have a little chat about it (if you’re not interested in what I have to say, the posters are in a gallery below).

I’m surprised that I’ve only just heard about this film to be honest, I’m a big fan of Zack Snyder, I thought his attempt at Watchmen was more or less perfect, although I don’t want to get into arguments with people about the ending, and from the trailer this looks to be right up my street. With artful direction, epic action scenes, what seems to be a solid plot, and pretty, pretty girls what’s not to love? It seems that I have yet another film to look forward to this year, I think it’s going to be an expensive one with all the cinema trips I’ve got planned now!
