Zack Snyder's Sucker Punch Explained in New Featurette
12.14.10 by BJSprecher
It's obvious to anyone who has seen the genre-blending still images, teaser clips, or trailer for Sucker Punch that director Zack Snyder (300, Watchmen) has another visually stunning action movie on his hands. But, ingenue action heroes with super powers? Super-sized samurai warriors? Giant robots with bunny faces? Just what the heck is going on? Something of a plot can be gleaned from the various synopses that have turned up online, but many questions remain. Fortunately, a new Sucker Punch featurette has just been released that sheds some light on what's going down at the creepy Lennox House asylum and why Babydoll (Emily Browning) and her cohorts are such badasses. Says Snyder:
Sucker Punch is a movie about the lengths we're willing to go to, in our minds, to deal with a situation.
Sucker Punch was written by Snyder and Steve Shibuya. Emily Browning headlines the grrl-power ensemble cast that includes Abbie Cornish, Jamie Chung, Jena Malone, Vanessa Hudgens, and Carla Gugino.
