If you, like me, were unable to attend Comic-Con, did you listen to people talk about the footage from Zack Snyder’s Sucker Punch panel? It was like listening to someone recount a dream: it sounded crazy and all, but not particularly interesting if you can’t experience the madness for yourself. Well, Warner Bros. has just the remedy — the studio has released the first trailer for the girl power actioner led by Emily Browning, Jena Malone, Vanessa Hudgens, Jaime Chung, Abby Cornish, and Carla Gugino. Check it out after the jump.
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.
My reaction to this teaser was approximately the same as the trailer for Speed Racer, which I ended up digging. Can’t wait to see how Jon Hamm fits into all of this. Actually, I can’t wait to see how any element of the film fits with any other element.
