Well the more I hear and see about Comic-Con 10, the more bummed that I was unable to attend. But thanks to absolutely great coverage by sites like First Showing (G-S-T’s top choice for up to the minute movie info) and Screen Rant (a site equally just as good) it’s just like being there…only way cheaper:P So if you haven’t been keeping up this and other anticipated films like it, behold, we simple people’s first look at Zack Snyder’s Sucker Punch…
There sure is a lot going on in the trailer, not sure how that cornucopia of great visuals will play out on screen in a cohesive story. But as far as the story itself goes, here’s a little exposition to help you (and me) understand what the hell we just saw:
A young girl is institutionalized by her wicked stepfather. Retreating to an alternative reality as a coping strategy, she envisions a plan which will help her escape from the facility.
Hmm, well I guess “alternative reality” explains the dragon but consider my interest sufficiently peaked…but I’m still sure. I have supreme faith in Snyder but with teaser they can make anything look good (cough, Ninja Assassin, cough). Sucker Punch is set for release on March 25th 2011. That’s still a bit away but with footage like that this early, I’ve got high hopes. How about the rest of you, think Snyder’s got another hit on his hands??
