Zack Snyder Delivers Another Stunning Sucker Punch Poster, You Will Be Unprepared Alright!

Well it seems director Zack Snyder is coming through with continuing to deliver stunning posters/pics for his forthcoming film, Sucker Punch. With the release of another gut-busting promotional poster, you would think that Snyder has everything to gain! Already summing up to be a fantastic film – as this is my most anticipated film of this year – Punch looks to deliver a whole lot more than its title suggests.

This poster only reminds us that in March, dropping into theaters is the ride of your life! Dragons, samurai, guns, gals, robots, swords, planes and of course Nazi’s is only a short list of the things being thrown at us in high-flying 2-D! Sucker Punch is the movie I’m most looking forward to this year, and for a good reason!

Check out the poster below, and as always enjoy!

Sucker Punch Images Escaped From A Mental Institution, And Found Their Way Online

Not a lot has been seen of Zack Snyder‘s visual tour-de force that has been teased and built up through some very vague trailers and pics previously released, which is starting to play with your mind no doubt — maybe were the ones that should be in the looney bin! Well have no fair, as we have heres our latest quick fix of ass-kicking super-babes from Movie Webs feature the lovely ladies of Snyder’s Sucker Punch.

What I love about Snyder is that he’s a director that has no definitive style (apart from slomo action) yet his works stand out as very visually pleasing and the esthetic is more than pleasing. He stands out as one of my favorite directors (among the names of Quentin Tarantino, Christopher Nolan etc.) because of his visual style and amazing ability to tell a clear story amongst all the mayhem of flying ninja’s, gun shots, sword fights and toga wearing badasses slaying like legends.

The man just knows how to handle a screen, and these images don’t surprise me at all — they’re only a small taste of what’s to come and yet Im even more excited by them. Thanks to Movie Webs we have several images below for you to check out.

And for those a little less savvy with the story line Punch is a original story from director Snyder, about a young girl who is institutionalized by her wicked stepfather. Retreating to an alternative reality as a coping strategy, she envisions a plan which will help her escape from the facility. And basically thats all we know as far, except from what the trailers have told us to expect — warping battles with robot samurai’s, dragons, Nazi’s, Airplane battles and of course girls kicking-ass in sexy outfits…what more do you need??

So check out the picks below, and enjoy!

Zac Snyder Picked As Superman Director!!! Warner Bros. Chose Watchmen Director Snyder To Helm Their Man Of Steel Project!

I don’t know what it is, maybe I’ve been away to long but I’m starting to realise that I am WAY behind in the news this week and the last — so please forgive me, it costs 5 NZ dollars for 20 mins on a shanty town computer so don’t say I’m not commited! But it seems that Christopher Nolan and Warner Bros. have their definative directror for his Superman project in Sucker Punch director Zac Snyder!! In a short report Deadline annouces that 300 director, Synder, has been chosen by Warner Bros. to helm their untitled caped crusader flick.

Synder, who is know for his unique filming style has done titles such as 300, Watchmen, Legend Of The Guardians (which is currently in cinemas) is also currently working on Sucker Punch
A young girl is institutionalized by her wicked stepfather. Retreating to an alternative reality as a coping strategy, she envisions a plan which will help her escape from the facility. And now Snyder will work on the Superman flick for a slated 2011 release (according to Imdb).

Synder’s name was amongst a list of potential directors drafted by fellow director Christopher Nolan, who has been and will be overseeing the project in its development. Nolan, as we know is the man that single handily reinvented fellow DC super-hero Batman successfully in two films, the last being big earner The Dark Knight. So we know that the film is in capable hands — and now with Synder added to the mix I’m sure we’ll be seeing some slow-mo goodness in no time!

Among other names such as Darren Aronofsky, Ben Affleck, Matt Reeves and Tony Scott — Snyder was the studios pick as well as Nolan’s — and judging by his obvious skill he is the right choice.

Working with David S. Goyer, Chris Nolan is looking to revive the Man Of Steel franchise in his first film appearance since 2006 in the Bryan Singer directed bomb, Superman Returns. Which looked to boost a franchise on its back but didn’t quite make it when It came to critics, or general film-goers. In the film, Brandon Routh played the Clark Kent/Superman duo and it seems unlikely that he will be asked to reprise his role for the upcoming film.

Scribe Goyer is working on the script, which is rumored to be reminiscent of the 1970’s Richard Donner’s Superman film. Last week Snyder tweeted on his page “I finally get to put my 32 cents in…”. Followed by a link to the following image:

So clearly hes just as excited as we are, I’m looking forward to some good results! So that’s it from me, stay tuned for more on Superman: Man Of Steel — and please forgive me on the late post, holidays are a killer you know ;D

Banner For Zack Snyder’s Sucker Punch Is Freakin Awesome!

If you have seen the trailer for Zack Snyder‘s Sucker Punch, then you will know that it is a fairly accurate indication of what to expect — and hell, I’m excited! Here we have a banner straight from the film itself, and in the current fashion of the film — it fits in pretty damn well.

For those sleepy to Snyder’s latest production, Sucker Punch is about a young girl (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. And judging by the trailer, its not medical staff she should be worried about — its German soldiers, evil gun-wielding robots, Samaria and dragons.

Thanks to IMP awards (via CinemaBlend) we have this banner poster to share with you. Between the huge robot with a bunny painted on the front of it and five scantily clad babes with machine guns and war era planes circling a gothic castle we can get a small but sweet taste of Snyder’s Punch. Tell us what you think?

Trailer Trove: Zack Snyder’s Sucker Punch Makes It’s Online Debut Straight From Comic-Con!

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!
