Resistance is "Feudal" in Latest Sucker Punch Animated Short
03.25.11 by BrentJS
Before you head to the theaters to see writer-director Zack Snyder's (300, Watchmen) new action movie, Sucker Punch, which opens nationwide today, check out this fourth animated short set in one of the fantastical landscapes that Babydoll (Emily Browning) and her femme force—Rocket (Jena Malone), Blondie (Vanessa Hudgens), Amber (Jamie Chung) and Sweet Pea (Abbie Cornish)—hack, slash, and rat-a-tat their way through in order to find the five keys that will lead to their salvation. The first animated short took us to a WWI-esque battlefield populated by cyborg zombie soldiers; the second animated short sent us back to a medieval world filled with knights, orcs and dragons; and the third animated short flung us across the universe to a "Distant Planet" where robots ferment rebellion. In the new animated short, we head off to a feudal world where towering demonic samurai reign.
Here's the synopsis of the latest animated short, "Feudal Warriors," from Snyder and animator Ben Hibon:
In Sucker Punch, Babydoll finds herself in the snowy courtyard of an ancient temple where she must face off against three massive Samurai. To battle the gigantic and heavily armed Samurai, Babydoll must gather all the courage and strength she possesses or face certain death. "Feudal Warriors" explores the origin of these monstrous opponents.
Sucker Punch was written by Snyder and Steve Shibuya. The cast includes Carla Gugino as Madam Gorski, Oscar Isaac as Blue and Jon Hamm as High Roller.
