Comic-Con was all abuzz with talk of Sucker Punch, Zack Snyder’s super fetishy, WWI, zombie, dragon, chick soldiers movie, and the internet now has a trailer. Plot sound a little crazy? Yeah. I still don’t know what to make of it. But they did give me some free t-shirts, so it’ll probably be the best movie ever.
“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 alternative reality. She plans to escape from that imaginary world but to do that she needs to steal five objects before she is caught by a vile man. 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.”
And here’s the cast run down:
- Emily Browning as Babydoll
- Vanessa Hudgens as Blondie
- Abbie Cornish as Sweet Pea
- Jamie Chung [fmrly of Real World San Diego] as Amber
- Jena Malone as Rocket
- Carla Gugino as Madam Gorski
- Jon Hamm as High Roller
So, another dream sequence movie, eh? (*BRAAAAAHM*) Is this really what girls dream about? Call me crazy, but when I hear zombies, explosions, sword fights, dragons, samurai, chicks dressed like Catholic schoolgirls and WWI, it sounds to me almost like something a dude would dream of.
