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.

    This is good news. Hopefully the 3D craze will slow down in 2011.

      I am highly disappointed. I know a few visually challenged people out there might not like the 3D experience, and for that they can go see the 2D release. But no serious movie should be without it, now that they finally have the technolgy for it. Avatar and Resident Evil were 10 times better with it, and the viewers WANT IT!! I SO wanted to see Sucker Punch, but that was when it was promised in 3D. I don’t like directors who don’t hold true to their word, and I don’t like movies that aren’t filmed in 3D. Not anymore.

        You sound like such a tool…

    Debbie Snyder did more than strongly imply. She confirmed it wouldn’t be 3D, saying “We didn’t think it would live up to our expectations” and to convert would be a “mistake”.

    This isn’t really an exclusive as it confirms nothing new.

    Is it wrong that I’d have sex with every girl in that movie?

    I know every movie doesn’t work well with 3D, but a movie like this that is full of CG imagery seems perfect for 3D.

    Well when 3D tv’s come out then I’m sure it will be rereleased in a 3D dvd, just like 300 will be.

    Excellent 3D conversion takes at least a year to make and too bad they don’t have time to do it as they need to release the movie soon so that producers get money and pay expenses. Crappy 3D conversion thought takes little time but, yes, you get crappy 3D conversion and Zach wants excellent 3D conversion.
