New Banner and Character Posters for Zack Snyder's Sucker Punch
07.23.10 by BrentJS
After directing two of the more adult-oriented comic book movie adaptations (300 and Watchmen), director Zack Snyder took a brief foray into kids movies with his upcoming animated adventure, Legend of the Guardians. Apparently, Snyder just wanted to dip his toes into a lighter genre with Guardians because he quickly plunged back into mature fare with Sucker Punch, a violent, sexy, pulp-tinged original feature described as "Alice in Wonderland with a machine gun."
To coincide with the opening of the 2010 San Diego Comic-Con, a new Sucker Punch movie banner has been released, as well as a series of posters spotlighting several of the female characters, including Babydoll (Emily Browning), Blondie (Vanessa Hudgens), Rocket (Jena Malone), Sweet Pea (Abbie Cornish), Amber (Jamie Chung) and Madam Gorski (Carla Gugino).
Here is the synopsis of the movie:
Set in the 1950s, Sucker Punch follows Babydoll (Browning), who has been confined to a mental institution by her evil stepfather, where she has five days to escape before being lobotomized. To escape the pain of her reality, Babydoll imagines an alternative reality world. The lines between fantasy and reality begin to blur for Babydoll and she begins planning her real-world escape from within the fantasy world she has created, needing to steal five objects to help get her out before she is deflowered by a vile man. She is joined on her quest by four friends who are also patients at the institution and the lessons learned in the fantasy world could help the girls escape their real-world fate.
