A few days ago Warner Bros. showed the first footage from Zack Snyder’s Sucker Punch at Comic-Con. I managed to see the presentation and can report the footage looked like nothing I’ve ever seen and that’s a good thing. Too often Hollywood sticks to the same formula and tries to remake or redo what’s been done before. I know a lot about Sucker Punch…and I’m extremely confident you’ve never seen this film and when it gets released next March it’s going to wow you.
Anyway, a few minutes ago we posted the first trailer. While some trailers are slow and deliberate, the footage in Sucker Punch flies by a mile a minute. In fact, some of best things are only in one frame of the trailer! So to make sure you see everything, I screen grabbed about 30 frames and they’re after the jump. Take a look. Especially if you want to see dragons, ninjas, and girls with machine guns.
Here’s the synopsis:
Set in the 1950s, “Punch” follows a girl who is confined to a mental institution by her stepfather, who intends to have her lobotomized in five days. While there, she imagines an alternative reality to hide her from the pain, and in that world, she begins planning her escape, needing to steal five objects to help get her out before she is deflowered by a vile man.
Sucker Punch stars Emily Browning, Jena Malone, Vanessa Hudgens, Jaime Chung, Abby Cornish, Jon Hamm, and Carla Gugino.
