In addition to EW posting the exclusive first image of Ryan Reynolds as Green Lantern in its preview issue of next week’s 2010 San Diego Comic-Con, the magazine has also provided a first look at the ladies who are looking tough in Zack Snyder’s (Watchmen) upcoming action flick, Sucker Punch.

The photo features actresses Abbie Cornish (Stop-Loss), Jena Malone (The Ruins), Emily Browning (The Uninvited), Vanessa Hudgens (High Shcool Musical) and Jamie Chung (Dragonball: Evolution). Scott Glenn (W) is also in there – but who really cares about the dude in a movie like this?

First off, let me just say that these girls look badass. Most of them are known for playing pretty or meek characters, but slap them in some leather and color them in some dark makeup and…wow, those goodie-girl images just fall away (though Hudgens has managed to do that in real life icon wink First Image of the Tough Girls in Zack Snyders Sucker Punch ).

If you want to know why the girls (and guy) are all dressed to literally kill, here’s a quick synopsis about the plot of Sucker Punch:

The film details the action-packed fantasy world of a mental patient named Babydoll (Emily Browning), who escapes from her reality to deal with her abusive stepfather and lobotomy. She plans to escape from that imaginary world but to do that she needs to steal five objects before she is caught by a vile man. Story is set in 1950′s. The pic was written by Snyder and newcomer Steve Shibuya.

Keeping that synopsis in mind, it’s easy to assume that the pic below depicts the fantasy world that Babydoll is creating for herself. Kind of like Alice In Wonderland meets The Expendables meets Girl, Interrupted:

I’ve been on the fence about this movie ever since it was first announced. While the fantasy world sequences will undoubtedly have the same Snyder-brand visual flare we saw in 300 and Watchmen, the whole real-world institution/stepfather/lobotomy plotline sounds like fairly dark material, which almost seems mismatched with a girl-power action movie. Bottom line: this is a weird concept.

A lot of fanboys are already behind the flick, presumably because Snyder is writing and directing it. Well, Snyder also has an animated flick, Legend of the Guardians coming out this Fall and I’m not exactly sold on that concept – creepy-looking CGI owls at war – either. I’ll need to see more from both these projects before I sign up to see them.

Luckily Comic-Con 2010 will be the place to learn all about Sucker Punch (and so much more) – make sure to bookmark our official Screen Rant 2010 Comic-Con Official Page now to keep up with all the breaking news next week.

Sucker Punch is slated for release on March 25, 2011.

  1. hey this movie might be good, the chicks are hot and its a fantasy , so im think yes, any buddy agree

  2. excited in all possible ways…

  3. Is that Dominic Monoghan on the left? :P

  4. Finally!!!after a whole year wait!!

  5. Ok that’s the 3rd time you called the owls creepy Kofi. They look as about as creepy as the penguins from Happy Feet.

  6. I don’t know about creepy, but the whole idea is stupid I can tell you that. Owls fighting over control of the universe??? They don’t even have hands! they gonna sword fight with one leg and stand on the other? Every time I see a preview I just wonder why anyone thought the idea was worth making a movie about

  7. Zack Snyder (IMO) is an awesome director. (300, Watchmen). Not so sure about Vanessa Hudgens, but we’ll see.

  8. Every time I see a preview for that dumb owl movie I just wanna… I don’t even know. It looks incredibly lame.

    This movie though…this might be worth seeing ;)

  9. The owl movie looks retarded. Owls are not cool and this movie will bomb. They won’t even make back a quarter of the money they spent to make it.

    What’s next a moive starring humming birds? No wonder why movie company’s are going bankrupt.

  10. Haha yeah this owl movie sucks love the trailer music better than the view lol!!! But still owls are cool wat u talking bout?!? The movies story is dumb to me though…..
