Warner Bros has released a full set of character banners for their forthcoming feature Sucker Punch, and like all the promo material before they look great. I prefer the old ones, but these are still nice.
The banners show the 5 main girls, who are: Emily Browning as Babydoll, Jamie Chung as Amber, Vanessa Hudgens as Blondie, Jena Malone as Rocket and Abbie Cornish as Sweet Pea. All are patients in a mental asylum, who group together to help free Babydoll, who is under imminent threat of being lobotomised. Of course this whole escape plan takes place in an alternate reality where anything could and does happen.
Watchman director Zack Snyder is behind the camera, so the finished film should be spectacular…at least to watch.
Sucker Punch hits US screens March 25th, with Ireland following a week later on April 1st.
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, and her incredible adventures blur the lines between what’s real and what is imaginary.
She has been locked away against her will, but Babydoll (Emily Browning) has not lost her will to survive. Determined to fight for her freedom, she urges four other young girls—the outspoken Rocket(Jena Malone), the street-smart Blondie (Vanessa Hudgens), the fiercely loyal Amber (Jamie Chung) and the reluctant Sweet Pea (Abbie Cornish)—to band together and try to escape their terrible fate at the hands of their captors, Blue (Oscar Isaac), Madam Gorski (Carla Gugino) and the High Roller (Jon Hamm).
Led by Babydoll, the girls engage in fantastical warfare against everything from samurais to serpents, with a virtual arsenal at their disposal. Together, they must decide what they are willing to sacrifice in order to stay alive. But with the help of a Wise Man (Scott Glenn), their unbelievable journey—if they succeed—will set them free.
