I am diverging from Lost in Previews to bring you news of Sucker Punch. I had never heard anything about this movie until there was a still in Entertainment Weekly last week. Let’s just say that the movie is very odd, but intriguing to me. I can’t wait for a trailer to hit. It could be a horribly bad movie or awesomely good movie. According to IMDB, the movie is about
“. . . a little girl who is trying to hide from the pain caused by her evil stepfather and lobotomy. She ends up in mental institution and while there she starts to imagine alternative reality. She plans to escape from that imaginary world but to do that she needs to steal five objects before she is caught by a vile man. Story is set in 1950’s.”
Zack Snyder (300, Watchmen, The Legend of the Guardians) is directing this piece so there will be plenty of green screen I am thinking. Snyder also came up with the story and co-wrote the screenplay. Emily Browning, Jena Malone, Abbie Cornish, Vanessa Hudgens, Michael Jai White, Jon Hamm, Carla Gugino, Jaime Chung, and Scott Glenn star in the movie. That’s a really odd mix of actors.
Six posters came online today, and they are pretty good. I am sure they will get fanboys all in a tizzy.
Sucker Punch will be in theatres and IMAX 3D March 25, 2011. I cannot wait for a trailer . . .
