You know that Zack Snyder, the director we love so much for his stunning visual and directorial vision seen in "300", "Watchmen", "Legend of the Guardians", is having the premiere of his new movie "Sucker Punch" in March 2011. "Entertaining Weekly" has published the first picture from it and you can see its female cast - Emily Browning as Baby Doll, Jena Malone as Rocket, Vanessa Hudgens as Blondie, Jamie Chung as Amber, Abbie Cornish as Sweetpea and there's also Scott Glenn in the background. Set in the 1960's "Sucker Punch" will follow a teenage girl (Emily Browning) whose evil stepfather (Jon Hamm) sends her to an asylum where she starts to imagine alternative reality and meets other teen patients (Vanessa Hudgens, Abbie Cornish, Jamie Chung and Jena Malone). She then retreats into a multi-level fantasy world where she and her friends are the star attractions in a Moulin Rouge-esque night club brothel, and sexy warriors battling robotic Germans in a stylized version of the First World War. They also fight dragons and knights in a medieval world, kick alien butt on a futuristic planet, and battle giant samurai in an ancient temple. So pretty much a crazy movie with crazy characters and crazy visual design :)


  1. Sounds to be pretty weird, but a visual delight.

    Tossing It Out

  2. I opened up my Entertainment Weekly this afternoon to this photo!
    And wait until you read my review tomorrow of Inception. Bryan at SciFiHub has his up already.

  3. Yes this one will be one of those Snyderlicious films.
    Oh.. I wonder where's my other cafe is hide in your charmers menu.

  4. @Arlee
    yep, Zack's movies are always ingenious.

    yes, it could :)

  5. @Alex
    I'll read your review gladly, Alex, but you do know I can't stand Nolan and his movies :))

    I'll check up where it disappeared, Jaccsy, but I thought you don't really like and care for blogrolls since you don't have them over at your blogs :)

  6. So you must look more closely then. Check it on my cafe entrance which roll has disappeared here.

  7. well, before you just had a list and not a blogroll over at MOVIE CAFE and also no blogroll over at BUZZES CAFE :)

    By the way, the new layout of MOVIE CAFE is cool ;)

  8. March must be Zack's lucky month, he seems to always release his flicks around that time of the year. I haven't been following this one, but looks like this is shaping up to be every fanboy's dream. Where's the eye candy for the gals? :)

  9. yep, Flixy, I've noticed that thing about him as well :) There wasn't too much buzz about SUCKER PUNCH since LEGEND OF THE GUARDIANS is such a monumental movie and it took more attention.
    The eye candy for gals is in the sidebar :PPP

  10. Sexy women fighting Robotic Germans. Five words that sell the movie to me.

  11. then I guess you would go crazy about a lesbian werewolves movie as well :))) Check it out:

  12. Too bad Synder didn't have any colors (or colorists) left from his work on Guardians. :))) But I expect this film to look great anyway.
    I would usually find this kind of ridiculous plot interesting enough to watch said movie, but I'm not too thrilled with this cast (poster). Girls look a little too weak for combat. They don't even look sexy in those "warrior" outfits. But it's Snyder's film. Those are visually interesting. I'll just wait for trailer.

  13. ah, I forgot Bels is not into bluish/grayish colours :)) I think SNyder wanted tender girls in this movies because it will be shocking to see them feisty,angry and crazy.
