Sucker Punch – SDCC Zack Snyder likes chicks
I liken Sucker Punch on first glance to the bastard offspring of Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow and Moulin Rouge…only on steroids with big fracking guns.
We got to see a large chunk of footage from the film which is set in the imagination of the lead character who’s been taken to a mental institution by her step-father for a lobotomy. And that’s really all I could tell you about it. The rest of the film looks like fangirl wet dream with dragons, steam punk, kung fu, Nazis, and burlesque routines all thrown into a blender with some high grade E and Led Zepplin.
It’s beautiful and nuts and its one of the few times Snyder has done something that’s all his and not based off of someone else’s work.
I personally can’t wait to see it because I want to know what just what the hell it truly is. Its so insane looking it can either be REALLY REALLY GOOD or REALLY REALLY BAD. I’m thinking good because just the fact you’ve got WW2 looking bombers fighting dragons on screen makes me way giddy.
