Sucker Punch---Discussion until release, you guys know the deal

Zack Snyder's upcoming action-fantasy film scheduled for release on March 25, 2011. It stars Vanessa Hudgens, Emily Browning, Abbie Cornish, Jamie Chung, and Jena Malone. The film takes place in the 1950's and seems to involve a girl who's in an institution who dreams up an alternate reality. I've been interested in this project since i first heard about it last year and am looking forward to it. Apple has the trailer up right now. Here is the wikipedia article

Interview with Zack

I've heard Jon Hamm describe it as a post apocalyptic Alice in Wonderland on the Nerdist podcast.

Re: Sucker Punch---Discussion until release, you guys know the deal

I'm following this a bit more now that Comic-Con has passed. Can't say it was on my radar till then.
I really like Carla Gugino and John Hamm is becoming a favorite. I'm optimistic that Vanessa Hudgens will be a break out from her upcoming troupe of actors so I'll be following this as more comes out.

It looks visually like Imaginarium of Dr.Parnassas a bit crossed with ????

The trailer I pulled up for Sucker Punch.

It looks like a very strange movie.

I assume everyone also saw the six posters below the trailer?
I loved those. I felt I was looking at pics from DragonCon they are so surreal.

Re: Sucker Punch---Discussion until release, you guys know the deal

If you're referring to the awesome character posters that were revealed at comic con this past weekend then yes...very cool. Not quite sure what has got me so excited about this film...it could either go by the way side like "Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow" or be a sleeper hit of the spring. Tyler Bates is composing the music for "Sucker Punch" which will be his third collaboration with Snyder as he provided the music for "300" and "Watchmen". I read that he and Zack have already discussed music for the movie and was working on motifs even before production. Interesting that this film also deals with dreams and alternate realities.

The premise reminds me a bit of both The Fall and Pan's Labyrinth.

After watching that trailer, I know absolutely nothing about this movie except that I desperately want to see it

The trailer was absolutely amazing. But I'm very disappointed to hear that it's just her imagination and not "reality".

I prefer that. It means they can go nuts without having to waste time on plausible explanations for everything.

"It's a FAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAKE!"

I dunno, is the story going to "matter" if it's not real? I had the same problem with "The Fall".
