Girls Set to Kick Some Retro Ass in ‘Sucker Punch’
So, wait, there’s a movie about a group of kick ass women trying to flee a mental institution in the 1950’s before one of them gets lobotomized, and doing so partially by slipping into an alternate reality, and I DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT IT UNTIL NOW?
Okay, to be fair, I had heard things here and there about Zack Snyder’s Sucker Punch, but I short of shrugged it off. Because while I really liked Watchmen, I think the best thing 300 gave us were internet memes. And I disowned the new Dawn of the Dead for not being set in Monroeville (sorry, guys).
But it looks like I’m giving him another chance after all. Because the premise of Sucker Punch sounds pretty damn awesome. And I won’t lie, the posters are pretty convincing as well.
That’s Vanessa Hudgens, by the way. Which, okay, I’m maybe just a little pumped to see what happens when she casts off the Disney stuff and does a Snyder action movie…which is guaranteed to be foul mouthed, blood and…okay, yeah, will involve a bunch of slow-mo sequences.
You can see the whole set of posters here.
