Sucker Punch Trailer

Sucker Punch

One of the trailers shown at SDCC was Zach Snyder‘s Sucker Punch. According to a synopsis Snyder released in February 2009, Sucker Punch is

“..set in the 1950s, it tells the story of Baby Doll (Browning), who is trying to hide from the pain caused by her evil stepfather and lobotomy. She ends up in mental institution in Brattleboro, Vermont and while there she starts to imagine an alternate reality. She plans to escape from that imaginary world but to do that she needs to steal five objects before she is captured by an unknown adversary. She has 5 days to escape before being lobotomized. In order to cope with the situation, she enters the hyper-real world of her imagination, and the lines between reality and dream begin to blur. She is joined with friends who are inmates from the institution. Lessons learned in the said fantasy world could help the girls escape their real-world fate.”

I’m not a particular fan of Snyder’s work, but he does know how to create the pretty. The trailer for Sucker Punch is elaborate, bonkers and gorgeous. Whether the script holds up to the visuals is another matter, but right now I think I’d watch this with the sound off if necessary.
