Legendary Pictures has released the first trailer and production stills for director Zach Snyder's eclectic, pseudo-psychotic film, SUCKER PUNCH; which opens in theaters March 2011.
Sucker Punch is an original story, written and directed by Zach Snyder (of 300 and Watchmen fame). It is a film Snyder describes as:
"Alice in Wonderland with machine guns, brothels and B-52s.. [but] in the end, it's about this girl's survival and what she needs to do to be able to cope."
Those who had recently attended the 2010 San Diego Comic Con International were able to see the first footage of the film, as well as hear the film's director (with cast in tow) reveal it's synopsis:
Set in the 1950s, it tells the story of Baby Doll, who is trying to hide from the pain caused by her evil stepfather and lobotomy. She ends up in mental institution in Brattleboro, Vermont, and while there she starts to imagine an alternate reality. She plans to escape from that imaginary world but to do that she needs to steal five objects before she is captured by an unknown adversary. She has 5 days to escape before being lobotomized. In order to cope with the situation, she enters the hyper-real world of her imagination, and the lines between reality and dream begin to blur. She is joined with friends who are inmates from the institution. Lessons learned in the said fantasy world could help the girls escape their real-world fate.
Sucker Punch stars Emily Browning, Vanessa Hudgens, Abbie Cornish, Jamie Chung, Carla Gugino, Jon Hamm and Jena Malone; it is scheduled for theatrical release March 25th, 2011.
