New Poster for Zack Snyder's Sucker Punch Won't Prepare You
01.14.11 by Ryan
A day after a banner poster was released for director Zack Snyder's action movie Sucker Punch, a brand new poster has been revealed, claiming "you will be unprepared." Considering the trailer was filled with samurais, robots, and dragons, the possibilities of Sucker Punch do seem unpredictable.
Based on an original script by Snyder and Steve Shibuya, Sucker Punch follows a young girl (Emily Browning) admitted to a mental institution who escapes to her imagination in order to plan an escape for herself and her friends. Considering all the main characters are women, Snyder recently told The LA Times that Sucker Punch is a difficult movie to promote, which may explain the deluge of posters.
We have female characters in this situation that’s mostly the terrain of men. It’s a challenge economically to find who is the audience for the movie. Our hope is that the movie is transcendent, that it becomes something no one’s seen before and exists outside the models [studios] use to track potential economic gains.
Co-star Carla Gugino thinks Snyder has pulled it off, telling Collider that she has "seen big chunks of the movie and I think it’s going to be pretty amazing and visually astounding."
There are some incredible characters in this movie and I don’t think it’ll be like any movie anybody has seen. I’m really excited about it.
Sucker Punch opens on March 25. Vanessa Hudgens, Abbie Cornish, Jamie Chung and Jena Malone co-star.
