One of the big hits last week of Comic-Con was Zack Snyder‘s Sucker Punch — who knew. Snyder’s Punch follows the life of young girl (called Baby Doll) who is institutionalized by her evil step-father and after a lobotomy she copes by retreats into an alternate reality in order to plan an elaborate escape plan to get out of her current skewed reality and the mental institution — all before being caught by an evil man. Which is all set in the 1950’s, sounds epic no?
Punch stars an almost all female cast, including Emily Browning (Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events), Vanessa Hudgens and Jena Malone (Saved!) — all of which look smoking hot in the some of the new pics that have been released. Although not based on any comic (which sounds insane when after watching the trailer) punch involves Dragons, Samaria’s, Swords, fire-breathing dragons and and giant-gun-wielding death machines.
If you take a look at some of Snyder’s earlier films, Watchmen and 300 then you can only guess as to what to expect. So get ready for it, cus its gonna blow you away! Sucker Punch is looking to head into cinemas on March 25th, 2011 — so be ready for more news (and hopefully some footage) and as always enjoy!
