Film trailer: 'Sucker Punch' from '300' director Zack Snyder
Tuesday 27 July 2010
The wild trailer, just released post-Comic-Con, makes clear why the
Sucker Punch panel with director Zack Snyder (
Watchman and the upcoming
Xerxes) was much talked-about.
This epic action-fantasy enters the alternate reality of a young girl who imagines a plan that helps her escape from a mental facility.
It starts in the 1950s, when she is institutionalized by her stepfather for a lobotomy but the surreal power-packed footage jumps from the hospital to war scenes through the ages with dragons and dirigibles, heading at a breakneck pace through her battles for survival.
The film features Australian actress Emily Browning as Baby Doll, Vanessa Hudgens ( Robot Chicken, High School Musical) as Blondie, and a cast of supporting women including Jena Malone, Jaime Chung, Abby Cornish, and Carla Gugino. Also stars Jon Hamm ( Mad Men) as High Roller.
Sucker Punch hits North American theaters on March 25, 2011.
