‘Sucker Punch’ Clips Are Short & Sweet

Sucker Punch movie clips Sucker Punch Clips Are Short & Sweet

The eye-popping scenery, exuberant action and visual panache of the Sucker Punch footage released so far indicates that Zack Snyder explored the deep recesses of his imagination (or, rather, revisited the doodles he made as a 14 year-old comic book nerd with sugar pumping through his veins) in order to come up with this stuff.

Five new clips have been released from Snyder’s Sucker Punch – which is based off a story of his own creation – and while they’re brief, they pack quite the visceral punch (pun mildly intended).

Brunette Emily Browning died her hair platinum blonde to play Babydoll in Sucker Punch, which revolves around the character’s attempt to escape a brutal mental institution via the assistance of her fellow inmates: Rocket (Jena Malone), Blondie (dark-haired Vanessa Hudgens), Amber (Jamie Chung) and Sweet Pea (Abbie Cornish). Villains in this video game (cheap shot, we know) darkly fantastical adventure include the cruel Blue (Oscar Isaac), Madam Gorski (Carla Gugino), and the mysterious High Roller (Mad Men‘s Jon Hamm).

The second Sucker Punch trailer and official movie synopsis provided moviegoers with a better idea of what to expect from Snyder’s project, in terms of story and style – though whether or not that’s a good thing depends on your personal point of view.

Those that found the plot elements and dialogue on display in the most recent Sucker Punch theatrical preview to be a distraction from the jaw-dropping visuals – these short, no-holds-barred, action-packed clips will be much more to your liking.

Watch all five Sucker Punch clips below:

Battlemechs, dragons, orc-like monsters, samurai, explosions, gunfire, and a pack of young attractive women clad in black leather armor, ready for battle – Sucker Punch‘s fantasy sequences look to cover all fanboy bases and feature something for anyone who consider themselves even remotely geeky.

Will the gloomy tale at the heart Sucker Punch be as engaging as the visual mayhem on display? Early reviews are split as to whether or not the film works as a whole, but we’re still eagerly awaiting the arrival of this one in theaters, if only because, well… battlemechs and samurai. icon wink Sucker Punch Clips Are Short & Sweet

  1. Darn!!! One more clip and I would have been ready to write my review…lol :)

  2. they showed too much imo,

    why the hell they show the screen of how she kill the giant samurai looking monster.

    anyway it looks good but i dont know if the storyline is great we wait and see. also is it me but if WB do Mortal Kombat reboot they should asked Zack Snyder after watching these clips lol ;)

  3. ^haha

    I’m no acting snob but I have a bad feeling about the acting in this movie based on the trailers.

    • ok as i saw it was about 3-4 lines from the main actors in the comic con trailer, havent seen any other trailer. and just like small clips that show a lot of action, and you have already a bad feeling about the acting based on these trailers. how is that even possible?

      if anything it would be that they are maybe inexperienced young actresses? or not very experienced. cause i am totally unable to judge from the trailer, but maybe you are.

  4. I think this looks like a good time a the theater if you ask me! Hot chicks running around kicking ass? Im there! Plus I really enjoy Snyder’s visuals.

  5. This just makes me want to know how The Man of Steel is going to turn out!!!

    • visually MoS is going to be insane (just like every other synder movie) and since nolan is associated it’s going to be even better :)

      • People have said that Nolan won’t have that must control over the movie. But I doubt he’d put his name on anything NOT good.

        • considering his brother and goyer who he has worked with on the batman movies are making this, i dont think that he’d just bail out on the project even though it might turn out bad.

          • Exactly. He’ll make sure it’s good…

  6. Oh my God, I can’t freaking wait for this movie!!!

  7. I can wait for this one :D

  8. Oh boy.

    A Zack Snyder film that’s style over substance. What a total shocker.

    Seeing gumpf like this hardly fills me with confidence for Superman.

    • Really? I mean yeah there’s quite alot of style, but I doubt there won’t be an equal amount of substance. There’d have to be for this movie to make sense, right?

      Anywho, NOTHING could get me not pumped for Superman!!!

      • Not really, 300 is a clear example of Snyder and style over substance, Watchmen works but it had everything to do with the source material and nothing to do with Snyder.

        I want a Superman film to be substance, but they hired Snyder, so it will be stylish and slick no doubt, but nothing more than that.

        • You didn’t like 300? I mean I thought it was definitely style more than substance, but the substance wasn’t absent. It was just less than the style. Does that make sense?

          • It does, I don’t hate 300, the visuals are fantastic. but that’s all there is to it, great visuals. Snyder’s better of being a DOP than a director, he has a good eye for stylistic visuals.

            • I agree with you. I just think that he’s capable of substance. Haha. And I’m willing to give him a chance with Superman

              • Well, as much as I don’t think he’s the right fit for director, ultimately he is a small part of the machine. if the script is up to scratch ( and I hear that it most definitely isnt ) or they pick the wrong actor, those 2 things are more likely to derail the project.

                • The script’s not good? Hmmm… I’m still gonna see it. It can’t be any worse than Superman III and IV

  9. looks fun.
    Its OK for movies to be just “fun” sometimes despite what some people think :D

  10. What I’ve gathered from all I’ve seen of this movie, it will be Fly Boys meets Lord of the Rings meets Ninja Assassin meets Burlesque meets 300 meets I,Robot meets Street Fighter. I think I covered it all.

  11. loooks awesome
