With the 2010 Comic Con well under way, it's not a surprise we're getting so many goodies promoting the most anticipated movies on the horizon. One such film is Sucker Punch, an upcoming fantasy/action flick from 300 and Watchmen director, Zack Snyder.
The panel for Sucker Punch isn't until tomorrow but that doesn't mean Warner Bros. isn't already in the process of whetting our appetites - today, we have six brand new character posters featuring the ladies that will be kicking ass and taking names come next March.
We got our first look at the characters just last week via an image from Entertainment Weekly. It showed them in full leather "attack" gear with weapons in-tow.
Thankfully, the new posters are equally badass, but this time each image features a specific character played by the likes of Emily Browning (Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events), Jamie Chung (Dragonball: Evolution) and Abbie Cornish (Stop-Loss).
When word first surfaced about Sucker Punch - and that it was about a girl who gets locked into a mental institution, I thought, "Why the hell is Zack Snyder going near a project like this?" Then you look at the full plot description and it becomes clear why: it involves the main character creating her own fantasy world to try and escape the institution.
Take a look at the posters below (click for high-res versions):

With the flare for imagination and visuals Snyder has shown in previous films such as 300 and Watchmen, as well as his upcoming fantasy-adventure Legend of the Guardians, I don't have any doubt we're in for something unique with Sucker Punch.
The ladies of the film all look tough as nails. As far as my favorite poster, I'm torn between Baby Doll and Sweet Pea. They're both holding swords, why else? :P
What's your favorite poster and why?
The official website for Sucker Punch recently went live, so jump over there when you get a chance as it features some cool flash visuals of the ladies shooting at an army of attackers.
Remember and check back at Screen Rant tomorrow for our coverage of the Sucker Punch Comic Con panel!
Sucker Punch stars Emily Browning, Vanessa Hudgens, Jena Malone, Jamie Chung, Carla Gugino, and Abbie Cornish. It opens in regular, 3D, and IMAX theaters on March 25th, 2011.
