Sucker Punch movie featurette Sucker Punch Featurette Full Of Visual Splendor

A mind is always a terrible thing to waste, but none more so than that belonging to Baby Doll (Emily Browning), the platinum-blonde young lady able to conjure up evocative images of red-eyed samurai, fire-breathing dragons and scantily-clad girls kickin’ some major butt in Zack Snyder’s Sucker Punch.

There’s a new featurette out for the film, which promises to showcase more of Snyder’s breed of hyper-stylized action and some astonishingly elaborate visuals that truly set Sucker Punch apart from most every other upcoming Hollywood F/X-driven production.

The first action-driven trailer and short clips from Snyder’s Sucker Punch offered a whole lot of bang for your buck and got movie lovers of all shades psyched, but the plot heavy second Sucker Punch theatrical preview was not quite as enthusiastically received. Snyder’s work has often (and not unfairly) been accused of favoring style well above substance – more so in projects like 300 and this year’s Legend of the Guardans than his Watchmen adaptation, admittedly.

While the Sucker Punch plot does resemble that of a video game narrative, it’s also very much an Alice in Wonderland like tale that revolves around a young woman whose journey into adulthood is realized in no small part through her experiences in a fantasy world that (in Snyder’s film, literally) reflects the nature of her everyday life. It just so happens that Baby Doll’s “Wonderland” is full of giant meccas armed with machine guns and robotic soldiers instead of white rabbits and mad hatters. icon wink Sucker Punch Featurette Full Of Visual Splendor

While there’s not enough new material or information in this behind-the-scenes look at Sucker Punch to significantly dampen or heighten our expectations, it is nice to finally see (albeit, briefly) Jon Hamm’s High Roller, looking as suave and sophisticated as the actor’s Mad Men alter ego, Don Draper. He’s an actor that’s almost always a delight to watch onscreen, so we’ll see what he brings to Snyder’s new project.

Sucker Punch arrives in theaters around the U.S. on March 25th, 2011.

  1. I normally censor myself, but this movie is gonna kick ASS!!!!!!!!!!!

    • helll yh

  2. I’m so excited, I can’t wait. I think I will watch anything by Zack Snyder.

  3. beautiful looking film. Love Snyders style.

  4. it will be rocking movie in terms of visuals and story too…i am super excited of watching it in imax screen. zack will make an amazing Superman movie too.

  5. the more they explain the idea behind the dream = reality thing the more confident i am in this movie. at first i thought it would be strictly eye candy with a dull/boring story but after watching a few more clips and now this behind the scenes vid i understand how he’s going to incorporate the dream sequences with reality.

    btw the main cast are really sexy… excluding the men :D

  6. I can’t wait to get Sucker Punched. Even if the storyline fails, having hot girls kick ass against dragons. robots, nazis, and samurais is one of the best idea ever.

  7. Arg… too much green screen for my taste.
    Starting to get tired of films were even the simplest shots are multiple composites and post processed to the death.
    Just because you _can_ use all those filters, it doesn’t mean you should.

    An other thing, anyone else reminded of “Requiem – Vampire Knight” by those cityscapes?

  8. until I see more subtle humanity in Snyder’s work, I’ll be worried for Man of Steel. but he’s good at green screens isn’t he? lots of business and explosions. snore.

    Snyder working with Jon Hamm in this? Hamm seemed to dismiss the rumors of superman when he was on conan, but now… i don’t know, maybe they have serious plans for kal-el ala hamm.

    suckerpunch, however looks like scott pilgrim meets deathproof.

  9. Snyder is the only choice for a movie like this!!! I can’t wait to see what he does with Superman
