This past July, director Zack Snyder and producer Debbie Snyder strongly implied that their latest film, Sucker Punch, would not be getting a 3D post-conversion. However, earlier today, Bleeding Cool reported that the movie was listed among various films playing in 3D at the BFI IMAX.
We have now spoken with multiple sources close to the production who have confirmed that Sucker Punch will not be in 3D. So there you have it: we don’t have to worry about a crappy 3D post-conversion for this film. For those not familiar with the movie, hit the jump for the film’s trailer and synopsis. Sucker Punch stars Emily Browning, Abbie Cornish, Vanessa Hudgens, Jena Malone, Jamie Chung, Carla Gugino, and Jon Hamm. It opens in 2D on March 25, 2011.
Here’s the official synopsis for Sucker Punch:
Close your eyes. Open your mind. You will be unprepared. “Sucker Punch” is an epic action fantasy that takes us into the vivid imagination of a young girl whose dream world provides the ultimate escape from her darker reality. Unrestrained by the boundaries of time and place, she is free to go where her mind takes her, and her incredible adventures blur the lines between what’s real and what is imaginary. She has been locked away against her will, but Babydoll (Emily Browning) has not lost her will to survive. Determined to fight for her freedom, she urges four other young girls–the outspoken Rocket (Jena Malone), the street-smart Blondie (Vanessa Hudgens), the fiercely loyal Amber (Jamie Chung) and the reluctant Sweet Pea (Abbie Cornish)–to band together and try to escape their terrible fate at the hands of their captors, Blue (Oscar Isaac), Madam Gorski (Carla Gugino) and the High Roller (Jon Hamm). Led by Babydoll, the girls engage in fantastical warfare against everything from samurais to serpents, with a virtual arsenal at their disposal. Together, they must decide what they are willing to sacrifice in order to stay alive. But with the help of a Wise Man (Scott Glenn), their unbelievable journey–if they succeed–will set them free.
