Published: March 24, 2011 - 1:07pm
This final video in the collection offers a fresh look at director Zack Snyder's world as envisioned by animator Ben Hibon in anticipation of the upcoming live-action film hitting theaters this weekend.
Presenting animated shorts inspired by Zack Snyder's new film, Sucker Punch. Director Zack Snyder and animator Ben Hibon collaborated with Comflix Studios to further explore the fantasy worlds in the film. The animated shorts provide a distinct glimpse into those surreal places, allowing people to experience the worlds in a very unique way. "It made sense to me to not only approach the worlds from an original direction in terms of story and focus," says Snyder, "but also to really push the visual style in a different direction as well. Having seen his contribution to the latest Harry Potter film and looking at some of his other recent work, Ben's talent was obvious and his aesthetic felt like a perfect fit. His work is graphic and visually arresting." Hibon relished an opportunity to expand upon Snyder's unique vision. "Zack is one of the most exciting and original directors working in Hollywood today. Sucker Punch is nothing short of pure visual madness."
An original story written and directed by Zack Snyder (of 300 and Watchmen renown), the film stars Emily Browning, Vanessa Hudgens, Abbie Cornish, Jamie Chung, Carla Gugino, Jon Hamm and Jena Malone. Sucker Punch is scheduled for 3D theatrical release March 25th, 2011.
