With the debut of writer-director Zack Snyder's new genre-bending action movie, Sucker Punch, less than a week away, Warner Bros. continues its aggressive promotional campaign for the movie by releasing a collection of set photos, via EW, that shows more of the green screen action glimpsed in EW's recent set video, as well as several shots of Snyder doing his directing thing. Additionally, five new preview clips from the movie have been released online.
Written by Snyder and Steve Shibuya, Sucker Punch follows five young patients—Emily Browning, Abbie Cornish, Jamie Chung, Jena Malone and Vanessa Hudgens—of a sadistic psychiatric hospital who venture into a fantasy world of their own creation to try to find the means of escaping from their real-world nightmare. Snyder revealed to EW that he initially wrote Sucker Punch as a "very self-reflexive" commentary on show business.
That's what drove it at the start. But the more I worked on it, the drama and the characters took over. I didn't want to be too pretentious about it all. It's a cool theme, but it was also like "Okay, Snyder, quit your ranting!"
You can watch two of the new clips below and watch the other three new clips here.
Sucker Punch also stars Carla Gugino, Jon Hamm, Scott Glenn and Oscar Isaac.
