Watch the Opening Scene of Sucker Punch
04.05.11 by BJSprecher
Considering writer-director Zack Snyder's new genre-bending action movie, Sucker Punch, opened in second place and then dropped to 7th place in its second weekend in theaters, with a decrease in ticket sales of 68%, it's no surprise that Warner Bros. (WB) is pulling out all of the stops to get moviegoers to plop down their cold hard cash to see the movie...or, at least, to buy the soundtrack.
The latest—and possibly last—promotional clip for the movie was released on WB's YouTube page and it is a dramatic, nearly six-minute sequence that opens the movie and shows how Babydoll (Emily Browning) ends up in the sadistic Lennox House psychiatric facility that she later plots to escape from. The clip is set to a moody cover of the Eurythmics' "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)" and is performed by Browning herself.
Sucker Punch was written by Snyder and Steve Shibuya. Abbie Cornish, Jamie Chung, Jena Malone and Vanessa Hudgens, Carla Gugino, Jon Hamm, Oscar Isaac and Scott Glenn also star.
