The trailer for Sucker Punch that premiered to a benerdbonered audience at San Diego Comic-Con has been released online, and holy crap I’m suddenly interested in this movie.  Dragons, Samurai, space travel, and flaming steampunk zeppelins have that effect on me, and I suppose the sexy character posters below might also get somebody’s attention.  It’s directed and co-written by Zack Snyder (300, Watchmen) and stars Emily Browning, Carla Gugino, Abbie Cornish, Vanessa Hudgens, Jena Malone, Scott Glenn, and Jamie Chung.

Sucker Punch is Zack Snyder’s first movie not based on previous material, but an original idea that he came up with and turned into a screenplay with co-writer Steve Shibuya. Set in the 1950’s, Sucker Punch follows Baby Doll (Emily Browning) who is confined to a mental institution by her stepfather, who intends to have her lobotomized in five days. While there, she imagines an alternative reality to hide her from the pain, and begins planning her escape, needing to steal five objects to help get her out before she is deflowered by a vile man.

It all takes place in her head?  And her head is filled with dragons, explosions, and a dominatrix-looking Carla Gugino? We need to go deeper.
