Director Zack Snyder's (300, Watchmen) highly-anticipated new movie, Sucker Punch, opens tomorrow and Warner Bros. has released a third animated short to help flesh out the exotic, genre-mashed fantasy world(s) that Babydoll (Emily Browning) and her four friends—Rocket (Jena Malone), Blondie (Vanessa Hudgens), Amber (Jamie Chung) and Sweet Pea (Abbie Cornish)—must navigate in order to find the five keys that will help them escape from their real-world hell in the Lennox House insane asylum. The first animated short, "The Trenches," revealed a WWI-esque battlefield filled with cyborg zombies, while the second animated short, "Dragon," contained a landscape populated by knights, orcs and dragons. The new short, "Distant Planet," propels the action to a faraway world in which impoverished robots fight against the robot rich.

Sucker Punch was written by Snyder and Steve Shibuya. Oscar Isaac, Carla Gugino and Jon Hamm also star.
