The trailer for Zack Snyder's "Sucker Punch" made it pretty clear that the film was going to be a wee bit "out there," if you will. Now a new still has emerged that has raised the crazy bar for a film that's been described as "Alice in Wonderland" with machine guns.
As you can plainly see in the image just released on CruelFilms, Snyder's production company, it's a mid-air confrontation between a dragon and an airplane. OK, yes, it reminds us a bit of "Reign of Fire," but somehow hopes are decidedly higher for "Sucker Punch."
As a refresher, here's the "official synopsis":
U.S. & World
The day's top national and international news.
“Sucker Punch” is an epic action fantasy that takes us into the vivid imagination of a young girl whose dream world provides the ultimate escape from her darker reality. Unrestrained by the boundaries of time and place, she is free to go where her mind takes her, but her incredible adventures blur the lines between what’s real and what is imaginary…with potentially tragic consequences.
The film stars Emily Browning as Baby Doll, a young woman in the 1950s whose evil stepfather has her institutionalized and scheduled for a lobotomy. As near as we can tell, Baby Doll retreats into a fantasy word where she hones the skills she'll need to make a real-world escape.
Joining Browning in her adventures are Abbie Cornish, Vanessa Hudgens, Jamie Chung, Jena Malone and Carla Gugino, whose characters were all introduced via posters that were released on line during Comic-Con.
